Diving in Rasdhoo Atoll

Rasdhoo Atoll is a comparatively small atoll and we always dive on the outside reef which means we have deep water (+-160m) and this attracts many pelagic species. We have different types of dive sites which vary between channels, walls, reefs and thilas. Drift diving with the current along the outside wall of the atoll is usually easy while channel dives can have more current and are more challenging.

Early Morning Dawn Dive at Shark Point

This early morning dawn dive at our Shark Point is a great attraction and only 8 minutes by boat from Kuramathi. Hammerheads can occasionally be encountered, but there is no special season and a little luck is involved. It is possible to dive this point three times a week if you like the early mornings (5.45am)! It is a spectacular dive for Advanced divers, and even without the Hammerheads, the reef truly is alive with larger predators often hunting on the reef. It’s always a great way to kick off another day in paradise.

Diving Safaris to North Ari

Our diving safaris to north Ari are not to be missed. We run a half day safari three times weekly and a full day once a week. We make two or three dives on some of the famous sites there. Breakfast (and lunch on full day) is included in the boat fee. With the right conditions, this is a wonderful diving adventure and memorable day out on the magnificent Indian Ocean.

Night Diving

Night diving is available on a 40 m long wreck or on the house reef at least four times a week.

Fish Life on Rasdhoo Atoll

The fish life here in Rasdhoo Atoll is diverse and abundant. You can see several different types of sharks here, eagle rays, stingrays, manta rays (our manta season is really from November to April, but we can occasionally encounter individuals throughout the year), turtles (green and hawksbill), barracuda, tuna, Napoleons, morays, leaf fish and so on.
