Underwater World – Incredible Maldives

AwayLands_MaldivesUnderwater2016_115 AwayLands_Maldives-2017-201

The Maldives had been my biggest dream destination for a long time – the white sand, the perfect tropical beaches, the tiny islands you could walk around in just a few minutes – and the crystal water. I have been diving most of my life – my dad had been a huge Scuba diver since the 1970’s, and I got my certification at summer camp when I was 14. I took underwater photography classes in High School, and would dive with a huge underwater 35mm camera – something I think about a lot when we pull out our underwater housing (which is still just as big, but with a lot more features). However, I never got to dive anywhere tropical, and spent most of my underwater time on Catalina Island, off the coast of Los Angeles.

Finally getting into the water in the Maldives was something I feel like I had been waiting for forever – the warmth and clarity and untouched perfection. Truly the dreamiest underwater world I have ever seen.




9 Epic Drone Photos of Paradise – The Maldives



Anyone that knows us by now, knows that our favorite things in the world are:

  1. Tropical Beaches
  2. Outdoor Activities
  3. Tacos
  4. Droning

Going to the Maldives was such a dream destination for us, one of the few places at the very top of our list that at first we thought we could only dream of going to. Being able to spend a week here – from seaplane rides, to the clearest water, to endless tropical fish felt endless. While we may have been lacking in tacos, this tiny little island gave us everything else we could have dreamed – and the chance to fly in actual drone paradise.
