Situated on the local island of Fulidhoo, Vaavu Atoll the dive center sits at the heart of channel diving territory. Fulidhoo Dive & Water Sports offers exceptional dive and ocean experiences to adventure-seeking travelers from around the world.
The atoll is well-known for being home to many large pelagic creatures, including hammerhead and grey reef sharks, and vast schools of bigeye trevallies and this incredible wildlife makes for some high-adrenaline diving! Night dives are a popular excursion choice – especially to the world famous Alimatha house reef, where divers can encounter hundreds of schooling nurse sharks – supposedly one of the world’s largest known congregations!
Fulidhoo Dive & Water Sports is PADI Five Star Dive Centre - the only one on the island - and offers PADI dive courses, Discover Scuba Diving programmes, as well as snorkeling excursions.
