Things you should know if you are travelling to the Maldives on a budget

This blog has several parts, next week read about money and taxes……

With the advent of local island guesthouses and low cost flight carriers there has never been a more affordable time to travel to the Maldives. At Male International airport it is becoming a far more common sight to see guests arriving with backpacks and not matching Louis Vuitton luggage. These travellers are here to experience a destination previously perceived to be only for those seeking luxury. So maybe it’s time you considered putting the Maldives on your travel map!

Whilst budget travel in the Maldives is a growing sector of the tourism industry there still remains limited information available for would be travelers and backpackers. So the team at Secret Paradise put our heads together to provide what we feel are the Top 10 tips every budget traveler should be aware of.

Clearing Immigration and security

To enter the Maldives no pre-arrival visa is required, a thirty day free visa is issued on arrival to all nationalities, provided the following conditions are met:

Be holding a valid passport (requires to be valid for 6 months from date of arrival) and have a valid ticket to continue your journey out of the Maldives

Confirmation of a reservation in a tourist resort or a hotel either in the form of a hotel voucher or online reservation and have enough funds to cover the expenses for the duration of your stay (US$100 + $50 dollars per day)

The right to refuse entry lies at the discretion of the Immigration official, so make it easier for yourself and organise your accommodation prior to your arrival. Online sites such as Booking.Com, Airbnb and Trip Advisor are a great place to start or if you are looking for more of an experience and not just accommodation contact Secret Paradise.

Once you have cleared immigration, collect your luggage and enter the arrivals hall where a representative of the guesthouse or resort should be waiting for you. Importing goods such as alcohol, pork items, pornography, idols of worship and narcotics into the Maldives is strictly forbidden. To make life easier declare the Buddha that you have purchased in Sri Lanka and the bottle of vodka picked up in duty free, the authorities will hold any items declared or undeclared for you to collect as you depart at the end of your stay.

MALDIVES DIVING HOLIDAYS

Life beneath the surface in the Maldives is an underwater Disneyland, perfect for dive enthusiasts. The Maldives is renowned as one of the very best diving locations in the world. There’s not only an abundance of reef life here but also spectacular coloured coral and crystal clear water.

WHY CHOOSE THE MALDIVES FOR YOUR DIVING HOLIDAY?

The Maldives ticks all of the boxes when it comes to diving holidays. This tropical location boasts visibility levels of up to 40 meters, making it a great destination for advanced divers. However diving in the Maldives is not just for the experienced. The shallow lagoons and channels make it the perfect location to try diving for the very first time. Plus what better destination in the world is there to gain your scuba-diving certifications?

The Maldives is also home to protected UNESCO Biosphere Reserves. The presence of currents in this island nation means that open water channels are perfect for drift diving and it’s also possible to swim with gentle ocean giants like manta rays and whale sharks. Don’t forget the Maldives has year round water temperatures of 26 – 29 degrees Celsius!

THE BEST TIME OF YEAR FOR DIVING IN THE MALDIVES

Fortunately, the diving season in the Maldives is open all year round with the calmest conditions from December through to June. As the Maldives is located in the tropics, it is susceptible to both wet and dry seasons. June to November is the south-west monsoon season, bringing with it with overcast and wet conditions, especially in June and July. During these months expect slightly less visibility and different currents, although there is still plenty of marine life on offer, as well as sunny spells. Generally reef life is more varied and visibility is better on the western side of any atoll from May to November and on the eastern side from December to April. Reef sharks, hammerheads and whale sharks are found in the Maldives year round, along with manta rays and sea turtles, you just need to know where to head at the time of year you plan to dive!

DIVING OPTIONS

There are a number of diving options when it comes to Maldives. For example at Secret Paradise, value for money diving holidays and tours will be offered that you will remember for a lifetime. Enjoy an all-inclusive guesthouse stay and be transferred by boat to incredible nearby dive sites, the same sites that you would dive from a resort but at half the cost! Our diving holidays are an affordable alternative to a resort stay and also allow you the flexibility of island hopping or if your budget is larger, atoll hopping to benefit from the best dive locations during your time of travel.

Liveaboards are a popular dive holiday option, allowing you to scour the waters for the ultimate dive spot each day. These days most Liveaboards operate a year round schedule offering 7 night, 10 night and 14 night cruises not only in the central atolls but to the deep south and deep north offering opportunities to discover less dived sites and pristine coral.

SECRET PARADISE DIVING HOLIDAYS

Our packages include Dharavandhoo, perfect if you want to encounter 100s of manta rays in Baa Atoll, Hulhumale if you need to stay close to the capital, Maafushi, South Male Atoll, Dhigurah home of the whale shark in Ari Atoll, Rasdhoo, the ideal location to spot a hammerhead and Gan in Laamu atoll.

All offer boat dives, NITROX, night dives and a full range of PADI courses and will always ensure you get the best out of your dive.

PADI Pioneers: Generating Ocean Warriors in the Maldives

In a quiet corner of a luxury resort in the Maldives you’ll find an PADI Five Star IDC centre quite unlike any other.

Picture77

Teaching Maldivians to scuba dive might seem to some like selling coals to Newcastle. Wherever you stand in the Maldives, you’re always barely a stone’s throw from the ocean, and many Maldivians can swim before they can walk. Diving is in the country’s DNA.

It could come as a surprise to some then, that until the mid-2000s, there were only a handful of places offering PADI Instructor Development Courses in the country, with many aspiring instructors actually having to travel to Thailand to complete their certifications.

Founding an Institution

Luckily, this didn’t go unnoticed by Hussain ‘Sendi’ Rasheed, the Maldives’ first and only PADI Course Director and in 2006, he decided to do something about it. Working at the time as the operations manager of Holiday Island Resort & Spa, part of the Villa conglomerate, Sendi approached the company chairman – the Hon. Qasim Ibrahim – and shared his concerns about the lack of educational opportunities for local dive and water sport professionals.

Picture1

 

The conversation would not only change his own life, but would ultimately change the face of diving education in the Maldives. Convinced by the lack of Maldivian educational facilities for divers, Mr Ibrahim asked Sendi to oversee the development of an institution that would change all that. Like Sendi, he wanted to provide a space for Maldivians to become qualified leaders in the diving field. And with that, The Villa Institute of Water Sports and Hospitality was born the same year.

A Place in the Sun

Purpose-built in a quiet corner of Sun Island Resort & Spa (another Villa Hotel), the institute quickly became a hub for young dive and water sports enthusiasts hoping to make a career in the industry. With spacious student and teacher accommodation and modern classrooms overlooking a lagoon that welcomes whale sharks and manta rays to its outer reef, the establishment is enough to make any Course Director drool.

Picture4j

 

But what makes the institute really special is what it aims to achieve. Its objective? To equip a new generation of certified PADI Dive Masters and Instructors with the skills needed to become not only leaders in the field of recreational diving tourism but also trailblazers in ecological advocacy.

Expansion and Diversification

Lofty goals to say the least, but within a few short years it has managed to do just that. After a restructuring to become the founding faculty of Villa College, (now the Maldives’ leading private education provider offering courses in everything from marketing to law) and an expansion to include facilities in the capital, the reigns were handed over to Dr. Sham’aa ‘Anna’ Hameed. Under her leadership and the close involvement of Sendi, the institute is well on track to realise its vision.

Picture2

Not only does the faculty run multiple PADI Instructor Development Courses throughout the year, it now offers Certificate Three, foundation and even degree courses in marine studies that offer PADI electives as course credit.

Ocean Warriors

These courses provide students with the tools to become innovators in the field of marine studies. As a result, graduating students go on to enter the Maldivian workforce in a number of roles: as dive and water sports instructors of course, but also as researchers, marine biologists, wildlife rangers, even government environmental officials and legislators.

Picture99

What started as an initiative of affirmative action to provide quality education and training for locals has now developed into an educational model that is forward thinking on an international level. As such, they are arming a legion of self-titled ‘Ocean Warriors’ with the skills to be the next generation of environmental guardians and leaders in the Maldivian diving industry.

PADI Pool Party – Bring a Friend Combo

PPP-logoIn 2015, PADI launched the highly successful PADI Pool Party. But to make the event even more successful, you can combine the PADI Pool Party concept with a “bring a friend” campaign. We call that the “PADI Pool Party – Bring A Friend Combo”.

We know various “combos“ from other sports, like skiing for example, where there’s a combination between downhill and slalom, or in ski acrobatics, where the jump is presented in different combinations.

But what about diving and combinations?

We are all familiar with the existing combinations between the PADI Advanced Open Water Diver Course and the PADI Specialties, or the combination between the PADI Discover Scuba Diving experience and PADI Scuba Diver / PADI Open Water Diver courses. But there is now an even better combination – what about a PADI Pool Party – Bring A Friend Combo?

The concept is very simple and doesn’t need a lot of preparation.

It is important that you contact all of your customers who have completed a course with you already, and invite them to bring their friends for a try dive. This is called “bring a friend”. You can contact your customers through an EPS (Email Processing System) such as Mailchimp, for example.

Invite them to the PADI Pool Party and offer them the Discover Scuba Diving program with a certain discount. Of course, the amount of discount will depend on the philosophy of the Dive Centre.

How does the PADI Pool Party work?PPP- Facebook Cover

Contact your PADI Regional Manager and agree a date on which to conduct your event.  Allow enough time to market your Pool Party, so that you can attract the greatest number of guests possible.

In preparation for your Pool Party, PADI will send you an electronic Pool Party marketing kit to help you advertise your event.  The kit includes:

  • Email Header and Signature banner
  • Website Banner
  • Facebook Cover graphic
  • Facebook Post/Advert graphic
  • A3 and A2 print ready, customisable posters
  • Electronic and print ready, customisable invitations

You will also receive:

  • Discover Scuba Diving Brochures
  • PADI branded bunting and PADI branded balloons
  • A set of A3 printed posters
  • A supply of printed invitations

Your Pool Party can be as fun, exciting and different as you wish.  You are only limited by your own imagination!

So that the event becomes a great success, you will need to have highly motivated Staff Members and a strong marketing strategy in place. The events needs to be advertised on all of your social media platforms, published in your newsletters and on your website. You can now also advertise your Discover Scuba Diving Event on the PADI.com Website.

 Best Practices:

  • Always highlight the free benefits available within the Discover Scuba Diving Participant Guide –  especially Open Water Diver Online – Section 1
  • Have a special offer for those who enroll in a course that day
  • Have a designated staff member at the water’s edge that is ready to take signups for the course.
  • Create a fun social setting and offer refreshments to encourage your visitors to spend more time with staff after their scuba experience.
  • Follow up with all participants who didn’t enroll in the course within two days and extend the special offer to them. Remind them of the great time they had with the “PADI Pool Party – Bring A Friend Combo”.

If you are interested in the “PADI Pool Party – Bring A Friend Combo”, please contact your PADI Regional Manager or the PADI EMEA Regional Headquarters for more information.

Discover Scuba Diving – Are You Missing A Trick?

Do you have enough Open Water Divers? Our most successful centres at diver acquisition are those that have a proactive Discover Scuba Diving (DSD) programme targeted at securing entry level divers. Thought it was too difficult to run and market? With two simple options it’s actually easier than you think. Time to give it a go!

Discover Scuba Diving made easy

Review the DSD Instructor Guide in the PADI Instructor Manual for further detailed information if required.

DSD in a pool or confined open water.

Are you a Divemaster or Assistant Instructor or above? If so, you can do this.

  • DSD participants complete and sign the PADI Discover Scuba Diving Brochure
    Conduct briefing
  • Help new divers put on and adjust their scuba equipment. Show them how to inflate and deflate their BCDs at the surface.
  • Directly supervise new divers as they breathe underwater and swim around in shallow water. When comfortable, take them on tours in deeper water as appropriate.
  • Debrief divers
  • Promote your PADI Scuba Diver or PADI Open Water Diver Programme
  • Register your DSD participants online

DSD Open Water Dive

Do this if your DSD’s want to do more!

  • Participants complete and sign the DSD Brochure.

Before the dive a PADI Instructor conducts briefing on equipment they’ll be using; explain risks of diving, breathing and equalization rules, aquatic life, limits of the programme.

Practice the following skills in shallow water with a PADI Instructor:

  • Breathing underwater
  • Regulator clearing and recovery
  • Mask clearing
  • Equalization techniques
  • Hand signals/underwater communication
  • Finally conduct the participants on a tour of the dive site

IMG_6175

Credit for PADI Scuba Diver and PADI Open Water Diver courses

If your DSD participants have done the open water dive, it can be credited towards the Scuba Diver or Open Water Diver course – A good incentive for your divers to do more!

Review the DSD Instructor Guide in the PADI Instructor Manual for further detail and information.

DSD Facts – why you should use this programme

While the conversion from the DSD Programme to PADI Scuba Diver or PADI Open Water Diver may differ between domestic markets and resort markets, it has been proven (and it’s still the case) that the proper conduct of a PADI DSD programme brings new customers.

With the introduction of the new DSD experience in 2002 the conversion has increased to 8.5% new divers in main European markets.

New PADI DSD bookletIn the resort areas, the conversion is lower at between 2.9 and 5%. The difference being that the actual number of participants is much higher by far when compared to mainland Europe.

What needs to be considered:

A DSD experience is the most successful programme to generate new customers, especially if the centres are using freshly certified divers to share their experience at the end of the DSD. It’s within PADI standards to have a PADI Open Water or Advanced Open Water Diver helping with the logistics of organizing equipment and other materials used in the programme, motivation and registration at the end of the DSD experience. (They can’t supervise, be used as a certified assistant or in any way conduct the experience or any of its elements.) The registration ratio is very often close to 80% if the emphasis is well positioned (end of the programme).

A closer analysis of German Dive Centres in 2006 has confirmed that the DSD is crucial for the good health of a business. Centres who conducted the DSD experience and actively promoted the Open Water Diver course during the experience found a significant uplift in their business.

In a resort environment, sometimes the programme is only conducted as a fast “benefit” and there is no follow-up being done at the end of the experience. In resorts where the conversion effort is made not only during the experience but also at the end of the programme, the registration into a PADI Scuba Diver or PADI Open Water Diver course is close to 70%.

Have fun, and by using the programme correctly you will create new divers!

After all the in-water activities, CY Dive provided a fantastic barbeque for all the attendees. People were dancing around the pool and it became the first real CY Dive Pool party in 2015.It was a great and successful event and I can only highly recommend that you will try this kind of event also in your Dive Centre.

In addition to being a lot of fun, it´s also a great diver acquisition tool as all the staff members are present and able to talk about their experiences of becoming a diver, and  how their lives changed since they became Divers.

Thank you CY Dive for being such an amazing host. I´m sure we will continue with this event in 2016.
