Rakeedhoo kandu was at its best with a medium incoming current and a current split right at the corner. We were with big grey reef sharks, some white tips, eaglerays, napoleons all the dive. We were so lucky to see a big sword fish which swam very fast in to the blue.
Miyaru kandu again with incoming small current, there were more than 20 grey reef sharks, some white tips, napoleons and so on.
Alimatha night dive is always great to see more than a fifty nurse sharks swim over our head, swimming through divers, stingrays looking for food right in front of divers. It was totally amazing

Dhevana kandu with a medium incoming current, we took our time to cross this small channel while seeing plenty of big grey reef sharks and some baby greys too. At the end was a nice drift in to the channel exploring the many pinnacles.
Fushi kandu with not so strong but incoming, we had about ten sharks just hanging in the current, few stringrays resting inside the channel, a napoleon came very close.
Fottheyo was with a strong incoming current. We had lots of fun going through the caves full of soft corals and had some grey reef sharks and a couple of white tips, many tunas, and lots of other fishes.
Fottheyo – Vattaru kandu – Divers paradise
Fottheyo early morning dive was a success, we were in the blue looking for hammer heads for 20 minutes, there were glittering planktons in the blue, no hammer head shark yet so we came and drifted along the reef, there were few grey reef sharks and big tunas, one eagle ray. And at the very end of the dive a great hammer head shark came out of the channel swam fast into the blue.
Vattaru with medium out going current, we saw a sting ray, napoleons, unfortunately no manta this time. But the deep overhangs with blue soft corals was a highlight
Last dive of the day with a medium to strong in coming current, we had several white tips, grey reef sharks, couple of eagle rays and many other fishes. Was an easy dive with so much to see.
Happy corner – Shark point
