On the Island of Maalhos we have our own Diving Centre
With some of the best diving and snorkeling in the world, the clear waters of the Maldives are a magnet for anyone with an interest in marine life. The richness and variety is astonishing; dazzling coral walls, magnificent caves and schools of brightly coloured tropical fish await you when you get down to the reef. In deeper waters lurk manta rays, turtles, sharks and even the world’s largest fish, the whale shark. The best bit? The water is so warm many people don’t even wear a wetsuit.
Most islands feature a so-called ‘house reef’ close to their shores, where the shallow lagoon precipitously drops off into the deeper ocean waters. The house reef is that area close to the vertical drop off where the coral begins to aggregate in a kind of coral garden teeming with marine life and colorful fish. The shallow water enclosed by the house reef also serves as a large natural swimming pool and protects swimmers from the ocean waves and strong tidal currents outside the reef. Diving in the waters off Maalhos house reef can bring you face to face with everything from surgeon fish, tuna, and parrot fish, to eagle rays, turtles and whale sharks.
Check out their courses
We are a Dive Centre established in the year 1999 by some very passionate divers whom all had one thing in mind, which was to share their underwater experiences with as many people possible. We have been offering Scuba Schools International (SSI) courses to the highest standards possible, and the programs include from one day experience programs (Try Scuba Diving) to beginner courses and First aid courses to professional diving certifications. We are proud to say we have trained a lot of divers and diving professionals. Our dive centre has also initiated a lot of clean-up programs and environmental campaigns.
After operating the dive centre on Malé for more than a decade, we moved to Maalhos to get away from the busy island city life and to be closer to nature. The dive centre is located in a house that is more than 70 years old. Rather than demolishing the place and making a new building we renovated the house keeping the key features intact.
Our staff is made up of very energetic, eager and environmentally aware diving professionals who make sure our motto “dive with someone you know, learn with someone you trust” becomes a reality, keeping in mind that our divers get the best experience they can.
Our facility consists of a dive room equipped with all the necessary equipment serviced to a high standard to make your diving safe, relaxing and fun. Also, there is a sitting area and a classroom equipped with a library of necessary materials to help students and divers with their learning.
