Galileo Liveaboard Guests Enjoy Amazing Diving

Today, December 11 2009, the guests were treated to an amazing dive at the Woshimas Thila dive site where they saw seven enormous grey reef sharks.  Later on in the day, the guests enjoyed an hour-long manta ray “show” at the cleaning station Donkalho and to top off the incredible day, they dove at Hafza, where they saw not one, but three leopard sharks!

Galileo Dive Safari Itinerary

This seven-night safari on Galileo gives guest the opportunity to have incredible diving experiences like this every day of the trip.   2 or 3 dives are held each day, including one night-dive a week.  The trip also includes a beach barbecue party and many other activities on the boat including snorkeling, sunbathing, swimming and fishing.  One of the coolest experiences of a diving safari in the Maldives, besides the diving of course, is when a freshly caught tuna is served up sashimi-style as the afternoon snack!
