Diving in Vaavu Atoll is all about getting out to the channel where the currents are thriving along with the big fish! We're talking sharks, sharks, sharks! Nearby channels - the entrances and exits to the atoll - provide great current, and this attracts large numbers of reef sharks and other pelagics.
As well as an abundance of sharks on the outer reefs, Vaavu Atoll is home to a real variety of reef life. On nearly every reef, you'll find everything from huge Napoleon wrasse, eels, tuna, barracuda and jackfish down to the tiny nudibranches. Schools of eagle rays are common on the bigger dive sites as are turtles and sting rays. From May to December there is a chance to see feeding manta rays not far from the island. But keep in mind, there are a difference between diving inside the atoll and outside the atoll. The corals has taken a hit during the recent El Nino, and are not in great shape inside the atoll. If you are not comfortable diving deeper than 18m, you will be diving mostly inside the atoll, and here, the visibility will not be as great as on the outside, and the corals and marine life will be of lesser wow factor.

Fulidhoo feels remote, but it’s actually surprisingly easy to get to. It’s a far flung desert island in a convenient location! Situated just south of South Male Atoll, on the northern perimeter of Vaavu Atoll, there are very few resorts in the area, which means that dive sites are often completely deserted and boat traffic is considerably less than in the Male atolls. Despite this, it only takes just over an hour to get here from the capital. There is also a ferry connection between Fulidhoo and Maafushi Island.
