When you book a dive trip with us we’ll take you to visit the best sites for your wishes, for example to see sharks, dive a shipwreck or search for mantas, combined with the given  weather, current and tidal conditions.    

Kuda Giri Wreck

The site consists of a small thila adjacent to the wreck of a cargo boat which is encrusted with ornate hard and soft coral and sponges. The bow lies at 18m and the stern at 30m. It is an excellent place to explore. Where lionfish, fusiliers, octopus and if you’re lucky some nudibranchs and a frogfish can be spotted.

Guraidhoo Corner

Guraidhoo Corner usually has a medium-strong current and so is a great spot to watch white tip reef sharks, black tip reef sharks, grey reef sharks, giant tuna and trevally hunting and hovering in the current. You might need to grab on to a rock or use a hook to keep your position as you watch them. Then you can move on and drift past the reef where moray eels, turtles, sharks and sometimes more pelagics can be spotted.

Cocoa Corner

This very attractive dive site is another good place to watch reef sharks and large fish like tuna and barracudas hunting, usually at about 20-25m. The beautiful underwater landscape features overhangs and caves adorned with hard and soft corals and sea fans, not to mention lionfish, moray eels, pufferfish and anemone fish lurking from 7m to approximately 30m.
