In January 2011 I headed back out on MV Orion in the Maldives to do the classic Male – Ari – Felidhe – Male loop. Conditions were great with beautiful viz although we had a couple of dives with outrageously strong currents due to the full moon. Below are a few highlights of my photos from the 7 day trip. Thanks to Alex at MV Orion for letting me on the boat (again). I’ll be back on Orion in August for the annual Hanifaru trek in the hopes that the manta rays and whale sharks will be doing their incredible feeding show again.
