Given that the Maldives welcomes thousands of tourists each month – for most of whom the major attraction is the wide variety of water sports available at the Maldives, it is only fitting that the Maldives should be the country to attempt this new world record.
This event that is targeted to include 1000 divers comprising locals and tourists is to be witnessed by a Guinness World Record Representative who will award a Guinness World Record Certificate to each diver and dive school that takes part in the event.
This Dive Maldives event is to be held at Sunlight Thila in Male’ Atoll. This is one of the safest dive sites with a maximum depth of 22 metres and a sandy floor with only a few blocks of coral.
