Addu Atoll offers a choice of stunning dives in a range of diverse dive locations. The reefs of the atoll were not affected by the coral bleaching event of 1998 which affected the rest of the country and therefore you can expect to see healthier coral growth wherever you dive. The atoll is also suitable for less advanced divers as the currents are weaker than at most other dive sites around the country.
The atoll offers the opportunity to dive with mantas throughout the year. One of the most exciting dives in the atoll is the British Loyalty wreck, a British naval vessel that was torpedoed by German U-boats during World War II. Other highlights include the Shark Point where you can see grey reef sharks in what has become known as the ‘Shark Hotel’, the Turtle Point where Hawksbill and Green Sea Turtles are seen regularly and the Kandu Huraa Region, with four different dive points and home to a plethora of marine life including mantas, nurse sharks, turtles and rays. Gan Inside is perfect for beginners where it is shallower yet offers a variety of marine life round the year.
