Coco Palm Dhuni Kolhu - The planning

We have been to The Maldives several times in the past and we have always enjoyed them. The small islands are very quiet and provide a real opportunity to rest and unwind whilst at the same time offering some of the best scuba diving in the world.

This year we have arranged our trip through Maldives Direct and Jim Forrest has been really helpful in getting us a deal that significantly undercuts both Kuoni and Hays & Jarvis.

Dhuni Kolhu looks like an ideal spot, small, in a the more remote Baa Atoll and with a good house reef as well as some excellent sounding dive sites a short boat trip away.

It looks pretty fabulous on Google Maps

I have just had all my scuba kit serviced, and its a good thing I did as there was a hole in the diaphragm of my regulator that could have caused me a few problems.

We are flying with Emirates so will have a short stopover in Dubai in both directions. The transfer from Male will be in a twin Otter seaplane which is always fun.
