Magnificent Maldives, Itinerary Highlights…

Rasdhoo Madivaru – Rashdoo
Rasdhoo Madivaru Corner is located in the corner of the channel into the atoll. Madivaru has its fame amongst seasoned divers of the Maldives. It has one of the most spectacular and confusing reef formations found in Ari Atoll. Hammerhead sharks emerge in big numbers just before sunrise swimming in large groups. Dolphins, dog tooth tunas along with schools of black snapper are seen at the reef edge during the early hours. Divers get an opportunity to view white tip reef sharks, pelagics, trevallys, little tunas, jacks, ribbon eels, fish leaves tunas, napoleon wrasse and barracudas. Experience the thrilling scuba diving adventure amongst fine coral formations with highest underwater visibility.

Guraidhoo Kandu – South Male
Since the eastern side of the channel is open ocean, large predatory fish can regularly be spotted here. This site is famous for sightings of sharks, schools of eagle rays and the occasional sail fish and hammerheads. The best condition to do the dive is when the current is flowing into the atoll. The dive begins on the outer reef following the current into the atoll. Most of the pelagic species can be observed on the eastern side, where the reef drops off into the deep ocean. At the end of the dive in the channel, along the reef you can find overhangs with plenty of soft coral growth and small fish.

Fish Head – North Ari
Fish Head also known as Shark Point or Mushimasmingili Thila, fits the classic definition of a thila – a large isolated flat top reef rising sharply from the inner atoll floor at 40 to 50m to around 10m from the surface. It is one of the best sites for seeing sharks. Featuring a series of caves and overhangs in between where you can see thousands of blueline snapper against a backdrop of black coral bushes and large gorgonians.

Fotteyo Kandul – Vaavu Atoll
Considered by many as one of the best dive sites in the Maldives, the atoll offers pristine reefs on the eastern side and thrilling shark dives – look out for hammerheads and grey reef sharks. A more challenging dive site which is not really advised for novice divers. Reef hooks recommended.

All dive sites are subject to weather conditions and cannot be guaranteed.
