Explore diving around the COMO Maalifushi

What to see

Whilst mantas are only occasionally seen around the atoll, you’ll have plenty of eagle rays to watch instead. Nurse sharks rest in secluded spots, turtles feed on the coral, and reef sharks track their prey.

The healthy, soft corals are like an artist’s palette covered in mixed paint. The reefs are covered in sponges and the sea fans are grand to the point of being baroque.

If you’re a photography fan, there is plenty of macro life amongst the small coral bommies. The felt-like textured nudibranchs are ready to pose for your shot, but the crustaceans may retract from your lens if you're not fast enough.

Your dive log will be as big as the Napoleon wrasse after you’ve finished exploring the atoll’s many sites.
