Scuba Diving and a vacation to Maldives go hand in hand as the beauty and the views underwater are even better than the ones on top.
Of all the Atolls in Maldives, the North Male Atoll is the most visited one as it is close to the International Airport and is, therefore, easily accessible. Being an ideal location for diving cruises to begin at, this was also the first Atoll that was open to tourists back in the 70’s. In the present day, there are many such diving spots in Maldives, but the North Male Atoll remains a prominent hub because of its shipwrecks, Manta Point and several pinnacle reefs.
Most Maldives dive resorts will surely have the North Male Atoll is their list of diving sites, especially the ones closer to the hub, like Adaaran Select Hudhuranfushi. A variety of unique marine life like the sharks and manta rays can be spotted at this diving site along with fishes of every colour imaginable.
The depth ranges from 5 to 40 metres and there are a few strong currents in the passes, but it’s nothing a beginner cannot handle. Once you are underwater, the visibility range on a clear day can go as far as 30 metres. A memorable experience that comes with gorgeous views and mind-blowing marine life, the North Male Atoll is a mesmerising diving site.
