Dive DJ, Dive.

wow.

VJ/DJ and all-around party guy Nikhil Chinapa shared his amazing underwater adventure in the Maldives with me on Facebook. “My first dive trip in over a year and I’m super excited. My dive buddies are 1. Shaff – super cool uber-underwater camera guy 2. Riya – Future film star 3. Siku – Sai Baba of the South East.” Um Nikhil, who wouldn’t be super excited just check out this itinerary! Day 1. Kikki reef Day 2. MV Victory wreck Day 3. Banana reef and Paradise rock Day 4. The MJ tribute dives, Bandos Rock, Maagiri and Bandos house reef Day 5. Kuda Giri wreck and Embudhu Cathedral *jealous.*

Let me just mention straight up that all these pictures were taken by Shafraz Naeem of aqua-dreams.net. Wow. Just wow.

Shaff. The trigger happy.

So the good news is I have a friend in Mumbai called Anees Adenwala who does exactly this for a living. He can in fact, even teach you how to dive right here in Mumbai and then recommend a customized jaunt into the big wide blue. (He’s been trying to get me to do it for ages but I confess I’m a complete chicken about being underwater.) So I’ll just go trip on Finding Nemo but if you’ve got what it takes, take a dip on the wild side! Write to Anees at [email protected] Remember what the crab said in The Little Mermaid…
