12-day trips – Best of Male and Ari Atoll

Quit new are our 12-day trips to spot Mantas and whale sharks at the best dive site in the Ari and Male Atoll in August and July every year. As an exception, these trips start and end in Male.

We will begin our tour in South-Male Atoll at spots like Kandoomaa Tila and Guraidhoo Corner.
Our trips take place during the whale shark and manta season in Ari Atoll at Mamigili Outside. Chances to dive there with these giants are really high! More highlights in the Southern Ari Atoll are for example Broken Rock, Lucky Hell and others. In the Northern Ari Atoll we will dive at spots like Malhoos Tila, Fish Head and Mayaa Tila. From there we will continue to Rasdhoo Atoll to see the hammerheads.

14-day trips

This 14-day trips to the south of the Maldives start and end in Filitheyo and will lead you into the deep south of the Maldives. On this unique route we visit reefs way down south.

At Meemu-, Thaa-, Laamu- and Gaafu Alifu Atoll excitement and unique experiences at unexplored reefs, Thilas and Kandus await you. Especially Gaafu Alifu Atoll is untouched by divers and full of surprises. Maldives diving at its best!

7-Day Special Trip Gaafu Alifu Atoll

We will schedule most probably two 7-day special tours in the Gaafu Alifu Atoll in the month of April. The tours will not start from Filitheyo, but from further south in the Gaafu Alifu Atoll. We will pick up our guests at Kooddoo national airport. At the end of the tour we will bring them back to Kooddoo in time for the transfer to Male airport. Lots of channel dives are on the agenda, e.g. Viligili Channel, Kooddoo Channel, Nilandhoo Channel, Kondey Kandy and Fonadhoo Kandu. On top of that we will do some exploration dives on these tours. Gaafu Alifu Atoll is more or less unexplored by divers and offers some surprises. The idea for these two 7-day special trips came into existence through our popular 2-week safaris in February and March and should allow our guests to discover the Gaafu Alifu Atoll within only one week.

The air taxi transfer will be from/to Male – Kooddoo.
