Werner Lau is closing his diving centre in Hondaafushi

With the effect of 30. September 2019 we are closing our diving centre in Hondaafushi.

The circumstances on the island do not allow us to offer the good service our divers are used to.

The initial problems could not be resolved until today. No change is in sight in the foreseeable future.

Missing jetty, a less than optimal diving boat situation, poor house reef access and its condition, as well as a lack of cooperation with the island management leave us no other choice.

With the new Sandies Bathala Resort and the well-known Filitheyo Island Resort in combination with our safari boat MY Sheena, we have the very best alternatives to offer.

Welcome to Hondaafushi

Hondaafushi is located in the Northern Haa Dhaalu Atoll. The island measures about 500m at its widest point and has an approximately 2km long sandy beach. The lagoon in front of the beach is perfect for swimming and snorkeling. Water sports enthusiasts will feel like a fish in water at Hondaafushi.

The house reef of Hondaafushi surrounds the more than 2 km long island. Currently, a jetty is under construction on the west side of the island, which can be reached “on foot” and which, after completion, will allow easy access to the house reef.

Of course, we also offer our well-established equipment shuttle at Hondaafushi, which allows you to dive comfortably without the hassle of tugging. On Hondaafushi we also have a special kind of shuttle service. Our boat shuttle is available for a small service fee in order to be able to dive about 10 dives at the house reef.

IMPORTANT: Since 04.02.2019 the jetty on the west side has got a ladder just before the reef edge. We also installed a bench there to put on your equipment. From the ladder to the reef edge the distance is about 20 meters. From now on house reef dives are possible from the jetty. This also includes night dives.
