In 2016 Silver Sands is celebrating ten years since it opened its first dive, water sports and excursions operations in the Maldives.
In ten years, they have opened ten Operations and ten PADI Dive Centers J WOW that’s an incredible achievement.
Their first Maldives operation, called Down Under and Wave, opened at W Maldives in 2006 and they have gone from strength to strength since then.
In 2007 their second operation Aquafanatics, started in the Anantara Dhigu Resort, Anantara Veli Resort and Naladhu Maldives complex of hotels. In the next five years they opened Immersion and Glide at Velassaru, FLOAT at Per Aquum Huvafen Fushi, Dive Centre at Shangri-La’s Villingili and Spa Maldives, Deep & Breeze at Robinson Club, Elements at Anantara Kihavah Villas and FLOAT at Per Aquum Niyama… PHEW they have been busy!
The next few years were spent consolidating these operations and their reputation for quality and customer service. In 2015 they opened Meradhoo at Jumeirah Dhevanafushi Resort & Spa and, to celebrate their tenth anniversary and 10 years of luxury services in the Maldives they opened their 10th Operation, Vommuli Dive & WS Centre at the ST. Regis Maldives Vommuli Resort in Dhaalu Atoll in September 2016!
But they’re still not stopping! In February 2017 they will open their 11th Operation in the Maldives at Kandima Maldives.
Recently, Aquafanatics was the first PADI Freedive Center registered in the Maldives followed in July 2016 by Elements also registering as a PADI Freedive Centre. Showing that Silver Sands are constantly moving forward and embracing everything that the aquatic environment has to offer.
Silver Sands Operations currently employs over 250 employees including 65 PADI Professionals from many different parts of the world and owns over 70 vessels including several Yachts. Their reputation is built upon the core principles the company espouses:
“To be renowned as the Maldivian water sports and dive adventure company of choice amongst both local and international clients”.
“To offer our clientele the best dive and water sports experience through activities designed uniquely for each client, delivered by a core of highly qualified staff using state of the art equipment”
What amazing goals to have and they highlight exactly the qualities that make PADI proud to have them as PADI Dive Centres!
Congratulations to Silver Sands and all their staff, we’re already looking forward to celebrating your twentieth anniversary!
