We offer a variety of different diving courses from beginner up to Dive Master. Our daily diving trips are scheduled according to weather, diver level and experience. Usually, we conduct a ‘two dive’ trip in the mornings and ‘single dive’ trips in the afternoons, with ‘full day, three dive’ trips scheduled by arrangement.

Opening hours are from 8:30 to 13:00 and from 15:00 to 18:30. We are conveniently located close to the restaurant and the main jetty.

Our experienced multi-lingual instructors provide a professional and friendly service. The Team is made up of 2 or 3 instructors, depending on high or low season, 1 compressor boy and 2 dhoni crew. Our knowledgeable diving staff is complemented by our resident marine biologist, who conducts our marine and conservation lectures as well as snorkeling excursions. Equipment is available for daily hire from the diving centre, for both diving and snorkeling.

Our dive centre team will help you to check-in and give you information about the dive sites, diving schedule, diving safety rules and prices. For check-in, you are kindly requested to bring your diving certification, logbook and your medical certificate if you have one.

Inside the diving center you can find a small classroom and information corner, a space dedicated to fish identification and small shop display, where we also offer a range of books and other related items for purchase.

All rental diving equipment is from the Cressi brand and we can provide full diving kits including BCD’s, Regulators, Fins, Masks, Wet Suits, Diving Computers and Underwater Torches (for night dives). We also offer a short term dedicated dive insurance policy from DAN.

NITROX is available for FREE to all Nitrox certified divers. Our cylinders are 10 and 12 liters in aluminum, with child tanks also available. All tank valves are suitable for both DIN and INT adapters. Twin valve is not available.

Our diving boat (traditional Maldivian dhoni) is equipped with a sundeck for your enjoyment and for your safety, a radio, mobile phone and life jackets are provided. Our dhoni crew will offer you hot and cold refreshments during navigation and between the dives, including fresh water, tea, cookies and fruit.

Full day excursions provide lunch on board. Night dives can also be organised by arrangement.
