Safety Precautions And Security While Traveling

Maldives is well-known for its beach spots and private water bungalows. Again, scuba diving is the second biggest excitement during Maldives Holidays. If your honeymoon rocks in a water bungalow, so will all the other fun-filled water sports provided in Maldives resorts. Hundreds on kilometers far from the island, all the atolls are a group of coral reef islands. This means you will have access to excellent crystal clear lagoons with abundant underwater life.

Now imagine it, isn’t this the most amazing place on the world for photographers and travelers to visit? Spectacular photos can be captured during Maldives Vacations, all the nature’s wonders near by. So, this article is based on the safety and security of travelers and photographers in general. You can only have the time of your life, under the sun, diving or photographing, only if you are safe and secure. So read along.

Your safety and security comes first, before anything else, when traveling. So always be cautious to know the local religious customs and ways of life of anywhere you are visiting. And respect those beliefs in your photographic approach. Ask around, or verify with your hotel, about a good guide and pay him or her well. A good guide will be as useful in getting good pictures as your technique. Be generous when tipping, but don’t show a lot of bills around. It is important that you do not draw interest to yourself by carrying or wearing expensive things which may exhibit a level of wealth that would invite ill feelings or disapproval, or worse.

Individual Safety and Security:
Even if you are lost in natures wonders, your personal security should be the main concern. Simply being aware of your surroundings, and being a bit more careful of what you are doing, is the best and least expensive way to protect yourself and your gear. Also it is safer to place your equipment either in the provided hotel room safe when not in use, or locked up in your luggage while out of your hotel room. Be informed, prepared and do more to assure your safety than anything else.

Last but not least, don’t forget that you’re a tourist in their country. So be polite and courteous, which makes everyone more aware of how much we all have in common, rather than drawing attention to our differences. And be aware that the irritating vendors are really just trying to make a living. You can make a trip of a lifetime by keeping your eyes and ears open.

One final thing to remember is that you can’t go back in time. Taking photos is a wonderful way of capturing the memory, but don’t forget to enjoy the trip itself – this sounds like a simple advice, but many devoted photographers find that they get so caught up in taking all the ‘perfect shots’, that they end up missing the vacations itself, and they lose out on enjoying the trip (as well as missing the time spent with their families or travel companions). So don’t forget to put the camera down, smell the roses, and enjoy the trip – if you did not capture that perfect shot, you can always get a postcard!

Vacation And Diving Experiences – Protect Maldives Lagoons

The Underwater-world:
The Maldives is a very unusual place on earth. During Holidays in Maldives, you may be staying on an island created by coral. There wouldn’t be any islands, id it wasn’t for the coral. That is why we have to protect the coral. You think you saw a stone in the water? No you did not! It is a living coral. What you see is a limestone product, which has been built over thousands of years by millions of polyps. These polyps are so tiny that you cannot see them. When you touch a coral, you destroy these polyps.

The most complex ecological system on earth, after the rainforest, is the coral reef. More than 100.000 species live here. Coral is the centre of this ecosystem. So: Do not touch the coral!

To enable easy access to the reef for diving and snorkeling, every island has especially created marked entrances. Please use these entrances, do not trample on the coral and bear the change of the tide in mind on your snorkeling trips. Seek more details at the dive base. If you swim over the reef at high tide, your way could be banned at low tide. So, never walk on the top of the reef!

The Maldives coral gardens are considered to be some of the most beautiful in the world. The complexity of this ecosystem can hardly be imagined. Every living creature has its place, apart from the human being. Therefore: please behave like a visitor in this striking underwater world. Do not touch anything! Admire the living space of the animals and enjoy as a guest the amazing variety of species. And do not upset any of them!

Here are some popular resorts for diving and snorkeling in the beautiful lagoons of the Maldives.

Divers and Snorkellers – Protect the Underwater World!
Divers and Snorkellers: The divers and snorkellers should always set an example. We have the highest interest in the conservation of the underwater world. We work accordingly: we only touch with our eyes. Even when we take videos or photographs we do not touch anything, nor do we bother any living creature. We always behave as guests when underwater.

We observe the movement of our flippers and we stabilize ourselves perfectly. Our equipment too, here in Kandooma Resort Maldives, is always tidy, so that small parts cannot cause accidental damage. Our code teaches us to protect this paradise and to tell others of our rules of conduct. So a diver or snorkeller should always be a model!

One Very Desired Divers Destination:
Summer Island Resort is named after the Kandoo tree which is found in abundance on the island. This tropical isle is preferred because of its close proximity to many excellent dive sites. The Kandooma Channel and Kandooma Caves and Kandooma “thila” (an undersea mount) all donate to making this area one of the Republic’s most sought after destinations for divers.

For the non-divers, the nearby clear water offers areas to swim and snorkel. Keen surfers will be delighted with the reef breaks on the north east side of the island from the swell that comes in off the ocean.

Everything you need for Diving and Snorkeling:
For diving and snorkeling adventures, the Rannalhi Dive Shop and Diving School offers everything you need. Plus, our Water Sports Centre offers you the chance to enjoy catamaran, canoe and banana-boat rides, windsurfing and water skiing. There is really no boundary to the water sports you can enjoy at Rannalhi Island Resort.

For the passionate diver, Rannalhi offers boat diving and house-reef diving courses leading to PADI certification in English, French, German, Italian and Russian.
