Vaavu Atoll, The Maldives
Not the best shot, but this was the only usable one. This was probably the greatest night dive I’ve ever done. At the Alimatha House Reef in Vaavu Atoll, you enter the water just before it gets dark and before you know it, you’re surrounded by hordes of nurse sharks and more than enough stingrays to make you feel incredibly nervous. The sharks swim next to you, behind you, right above you, and sometimes even under you – shoving you out of the way to be fed by the dive guides. It was an insane 40 minutes underwater. Pretty surreal too.
