The Indian Ocean has many different diving vacation destinations to choose from, including the world renowned Maldives and the Indian Ocean pearl the Seychelles. Although not as currently talked about, will become a more popular dive destination for large pelagic in the coming years.
The Maldives are spectacular and consist of more than 7,000 low-lying coral islands in a 1,200 mile chain southeast of India. A thousand miles east of Kenya, close to the equator, the Seychelles offer a beautiful tropical vacation with modest to great diving. And then there is India with the famous Andaman Islands and little known but Laccadives.
