The third edition of Dive Maldives, last published in 2007, has been revised for 2018 and is now available in hardcover. It has been fully updated with resort names and eight new atoll maps showing dive site locations.
Dive Maldives: A Guide to the Maldives Archipelago is a detailed guide to diving the atolls of the Maldives Archipelago with information on over 350 dive sites based on the author’s personal research over 20 years. This book gives a comprehensive overview of island history, Indian Ocean maritime history and famous shipwrecks of the Maldives and includes a useful diver information section as well as an index of fish, invertebrates and dive sites.
Timothy J. Godfrey has been researching the atolls of the Maldives since 1986 when he started work as a dive instructor and guide on safari boats. Prior to this, he worked as a journalist in Northwest Australia in 1983 and later travelled and worked on charter vessels and fishing boats in the Gulf of Carpentaria, Queensland and Victoria's Southwest coast. In 1996 he started Atoll Editions and self-published Dive Maldives: A Guide to the Maldives Archipelago; Malways: Maldives Island Directory (later published as Atlas of the Maldives) and Maldives Divers and Travellers Map. He published Photo Guide to Fishes of the Maldives, by Rudie Kuiter in 1998, which he co-authored in 2014 to include the sharks and rays. In 2007, he returned to marine studies and completed a Bachelor Science (Marine Biology) degree at James Cook University, Qld in 2013.
