Maldives is an exceptional destination for scuba diving and snorkeling thanks to the broad variety of difficulty levels, underwater landscapes, and marine life encountered all around the archipelago. The combination of reefs, sheltered lagoons, and drift diving has been attracting divers to the Maldives for decades. In terms of species, you may expect to spot marine life of all shapes and sizes, from tiny nudibranch to huge hammerhead sharks.
such as Maaya Thila, Fish Head, Hafsa Thila, Maalhos Thila and more…
Diving in this area is excellent and possible for all levels of diver certification and experience. However, some dive sites are only suitable for more experienced divers, due to depth and potential currents. In addition to ‘house reefs’ at most resorts, there are plenty of other dive sites, which include a couple of wrecks, sloping reefs and drop-offs, but most of the dives are drifting along the kandus (channels between thilas, which are underwater islands).
We are located in the north of Ari Atoll where you will find some of the most popular dive-sites in the Maldives.

Hafza Thila

Great dive site as there is a cleaning station for sharks. The best way to do this dive is with the current. Jump in from the boat and descend as fast as possible to the end of the thila. It might be necessary to “climb” a little bit along the top of the thila. Once the current point is reached
