Diving in Biyadhoo
When to go to Biyadhoo
It is possible to scuba dive and snorkel at the island of Biyadhoo any time of the year, because the tropical climate and almost constant annual water temperature of 26-29C/78-84F provides comfortable conditions for year-round diving. However, December to March may be a better time to visit Biyadhoo, because this period has the lowest humidity and the calmest seas. Most of the big pelagic species, including different species of reef sharks, hammerheads, and sea turtles, are seen in this area all year round. However, manta rays and sometimes whale sharks can be found in greater numbers in early May. The average annual air temperature is around 30C/86F, and visibility is around 15-30m/49-98ft throughout the year.
