An exciting mix between submerged landscapes and breathtaking views.

At the center of this long archipelago are situated, from east to west, three of the most famous atolls of Maldives: North Male, South Male, and Ari.

The cruise sets out to the south, letting new divers get used to the comfortable temperatures of these waters with the exploration of a trawler which sank three decades ago, turned into a house for the typical microfauna of these waters: needlefish and scorpionfish (Pterois volitans) inhabiting the outside decks and clefts full of glassfish.

The fishermen Island of Gurahidoo is surrounded by dive sites that can give rivers of currents in the pass, in Dhivehi called ”Kandu“, which bring large predators like the typical white tip reef sharks and grey reef sharks. Is not unusual to encounter large napoleons and green turtles (Chelonia midas) between the protrusions of Kandooma Thila.

The crossing to the west of South Ari atoll is often accompanied by large groups of dolphins.

These waters are characterized by Rowley shoals dives, which in Dhivehi are called “Thila”. They are particular because of the abundance of fish and coral gardens both hard and soft. In fact, Dhangheti area is famous for its spectacular dive sites such as 5 Rocks with its blue sea fans and Kuda Thila Raa with its schools of squirrelfish and yellow striped blue snappers, soft corals, and long black coral whips.

Before sailing back to the central areas is a must trying to see, in true “safari” style, the great lord of this area, the whale shark.

In the western part of the atoll, when dry winds blow from the northeast, there are several points where is easy to meet the great manta rays that come close to the reef to enjoy the many cleaning station rich of plankton.
