The Shipyard is one of the biggest dive attractions in Lhaviyani Atoll. There are two wrecks in this location both of which are covered with a variety of soft and hard corals. The wrecks are forty years old. The bow of one of the wrecks protrudes out of the surface and therefore it is a sight you may come across when you are travelling inside the atoll. While one of the vessels, sits upright, the other is on its side at about 30 meters below the surface. There is a profusion of corals on both the wrecks because of the currents that pass through the channel.  The wrecks are home to a multitude of fish including, schools of yellow sweeper, butterfly fish, damsels, Napoleon wrasse among many others. Several morays have also made their home in the wreck. The channel is also a hangout for large pelagics, nurse sharks and grey reef sharks. Dive trips to the site are organized by resorts and guesthouses in the atoll.
