Scuba Diving in Maldives

With over 700 varieties of fish that have been seen around the lovely coral reefs and atolls of the Maldives, Scuba Diving is one of the best ways to experience the spectacular underwater world. Crown & Champa Resorts offers the ideal opportunity to start your diving adventure, expand your knowledge of our marine life or add a few more dives to your log.

 

The teams of professional and friendly dive instructors on the islands are ready to make your stay in the Maldives an unforgettable one!

 

In the South Ari Atoll, Vilamendhoo Island Resort & Spa and Mirihi Island Resort are the ideal locations to start your scuba diving adventures. With a plethora of tropical fish, the atoll also offers sightings of the majestic Whale Shark and Manta Rays. The house reefs are spectacular with budding corals and located a short swim from the shores. The atoll also offers prime dive sites such as Kuda Rah Thila, Broken Rock and a variety of shipwrecks to explore.

 

Although Veligandu Island Resort & Spa is located in one of the relatively smaller atolls, the North Ari Atoll, there are 18 dive sites on offer. The atoll is famous for the abundance of reef sharks and dive sites that range from easy-going to more challenging for experienced divers. The types of dive sites include thilas, channels, walls and reefs such as the premier dive sites of the Atoll, the Rasdhoo Reef and Madivaru Corner.

Over in the Lhaviyani Atoll, popularly known as the sea turtle hub, dozens of hawksbill and green sea turtles have been recorded on Komandoo Island Resort & Spa’s House Reef. Kuredu Island Resort & Spa is located near the aptly named Kuredu Express and Kuredu Caves that are filled with an abundance of marine life, including eagle rays, grey reef sharks, large schools of jackfish, giant sweetlips, napoleons, green sea turtles and stingrays.

 

The rocky dive site, Mashura is one of the famous out reefs on the eastern end of the Lhaviyani Atoll, ideal for diving guests at Hurawalhi Island Resort. Here, you can expect to see many scorpion fish and honeycomb moray eels, humpback snappers, yellow snappers, cleaner shrimp, sweetlips and red-tailed butterfly fish.
