Dive Sites Description:
Addu Manta Point:
This outstanding dive site is part of Maa Kandu, but is often dived specifically to see manta rays who gather at this cleaning station for a few hours in the morning, when the incoming current makes conditions just right for these majestic creatures. The cleaning station is at 20m and there are strong currents, we require our divers to use a reefhook.
British Loyalty Wreck:
The British Loyalty, an oil tanker used to supply Gan, was torpedoed in 1944 by the German submarine U-183. The wreck lies in 33m of water with its port side about 16m below the surface; it has a good covering of soft corals. Many small stuff like nudi´s and ghost pipe fish. Turtles, trevally and many reef fish inhabit the encrusted decks, making it a fascinating place to dive.
Beautyful and intact coral life. Open ocean, everything is possible. Often we can encounter oceanic manta rays.
In front of the harbour entry of the isolated island Fuvahmulah we dive with a local dive centre the Tiger Zoo. Sometimes 15 or more different Tiger sharks come up from the drop off.
It´s sometimes a challenging dive in the blue depending on the currents. Everything can happen from Tiger sharks, Hammerheads, Whale sharks etc.
Explore the beautyful and intact coral life of Fuvahmulah.
