THODDOO, RASDHOO, UKULHAS DIVE SITES

Our dive center is situated on Thoddoo island, Alif Alif atoll, north-east to Ari atoll. This is one the most famous diving destination in the Maldives. The beauty of this island is combined with a number of great dive sites reachable in 15-60 min of boat ride. We also organize trips to remote destinations such as Baa atoll to the north up to southern part of North Ari atoll (including famous Maya thila).
Here some most popular dives sites around Thoddoo, Ukulhas and Rasdhoo islands. Miyaru Faru

Depth: 10-30 м
Miyaru Faru, or Shark Reef, is a 5 km long reef wall. The wall attracts a large number of fish species: lion fish, moray eels, sweet-lips and porcupine fish. If you keep looking to the blue, you can spot some white tip sharks and grey sharks patrolling area. Bodu Miyaru Faru

Another good spot for watching sharks. Also, there are many cleaning stations where manta rays come for some hygiene procedures. North Channel
Type: drift
Depth: 5-20 м
Water from the ocean brings a lot of food through relatively narrow "gates" inside of lagoon. No wonder why this place is always overcrowded. It's like an open bar for barracudas, tunas, lion fishes. Visibility sometimes can be down to 10 m, but chances to meet manta rays are good here. Veligandu North

Type: wall, drift, night dive

Waters of wide channel are rich with plankton. This attracts plankton feeders such as manta rays. Channel walls are nicely decorated with corals and soft sponges. Sharks and stingrays just love to take a nap on sandy bottom. Fan Reef

A very nice wall with lots of small things to see. Coral formations is a great place for provide shelter for venomous stonefish, Morays stick their head out from their hideaways.

Underwater landscapes changes as you dive promising some interesting encounters. Sandbanks, covered by coral build-ups, outer wall provided food and home for nudibranchs. Boduga (Bodu-gah)
Type: drift, wall
Depth: 5-20 м
Boduga in Dhivehi means "big stone", and all divers know why. There is a big rock underwater ascending from 20m up to the surface. One of the best places to dive with turtles. Grey and white tip sharks are often seen here, too. Kuramathi Wreck

40-meter long cargo ship sank some 30 years ago. Since then, it has become an artificial reef, overgrown with soft and hard corals, providing food and shelter to many fishes. Caves

There is a special place on the coral wall. Overhanging coral blocks created some tunnels and swim thru'es. Inside, you can meet some schools of glass fish and moray eels. Thoddoo West

Depth: 10-30 м
West point of Thoddoo is another easy but interesting dive site. You can start either from coral garden or jump directly to the abyss. Both ways are very promising. Parrot fish, trigger fish, snappers, gruppers, barakudas and bat fishes are natural-born photo models. Turtle Beach
Type: drift, wall
Depth: 5-30 м
Turtle Beach (or, sometimes, The Rock) is easily recognized by small rocky island. It's located quite close to the beach. Coral garden hangs over the drop-off to 30m. There are 2-3 turtles living here. Come for a dive with them. Good place for night dive, too. You can see hunting moray eels, octopuses, sometimes white tips. Vacation Home Corner

The best dive site on Thoddoo for check- and fun dives and also for snorkeling. You can dive it in many ways.
