The Maldives is a popular destination for travellers seeking a warm, relaxing holiday. Since its first resort opened in 1972, the Maldives has flourished as a tropical paradise, complete with cool ocean breezes, crystal clear water and white sandy beaches. Though best known for its resorts, the Maldives is growing in popularity as a prime destination for scuba diving. Avid divers from around the world flock to the Maldives for the opportunity to spot some of the world’s largest underwater animals, including the whale shark, manta ray, grey reef shark, white tip shark and napoleon wrasse.
Currently, there is little comprehensive information on scuba diving in the Maldives available online in German. Last year, 69,240 German tourists visited the Maldives, representing approximately 10% of total arrivals. Furthermore, Switzerland, where German is one of the official languages, represented 4% of total arrivals.
Mona Sutherland, content editor of Malediven-Tauchreisen, said, “E-MAGINE, S.A. is highly involved in online promotion of the Maldives. We identified a need for a comprehensive informational website about scuba diving in German, and gave the people what they want! Individuals interested in learning more about the dives sites, marine life and liveaboards can find it all at www.malediven-tauchreisen.com!”
