    Thanks for all your help and input. I ended up taking the aquq lung hot shot (bigger pair) with booties. It worked great on both the LOB in central , and dives in the south (Fuvahmulah).

    We got the SIM card and it was very useful. Had 4G access most of the time on Liveaboard, and everywhere on islands.

    Choice of Fins for Maldive Channel Dives: Scubapro GO Travel Fins (Size xxs) or Aqualung Hot Spot with Booties

    Thanks @Centrals for your input. I usually walk around in a pair of sports sandals. Boots would be nice to walk in, but I usually avoid packing them unless I need them for the warmth. Unfortunately, I do not know how these two fins rate against current, esp Maldives current. It's our first time...

    Wondering if at-home OTC testing counts? We are also preparing our trip to Maldives and this new rule is adding some stress. Just emailed them to ask how fast their PCR test turn around is.

The rebooking process at EWR was total chaos, while the waiting time on the customer service phone line was hours long and...
