What to see

Most of the marine life in the South Male Atoll is of the larger variety due to the strong currents that favor the area. It is here that divers spot eagle rays, turtles, grey sharks, reef sharks, mantas, whale sharks, schools of fusiliers, barracuda, trevally and even hammerhead sharks (from May to November).

Of course, smaller marine life also exists, especially in the interior of the atoll. To the delight of divers, anemones, shrimp, lionfish, squirrelfish, soldierfish, unicorn fish, morays and batfish are commonly spotted.

Wherever you dive, the wild ride known as the South Male Atoll is sure to give you at least one “wow” moment.

Dive Center


  • Within a short boat ride, an abundance of world-famous dive sites await your arrival
  • Dive the famous Kandooma Thila, where encounters with up to 100 grey reef sharks are common 
  • The nearby Manta Point is pelagic paradise, and even the long house reef itself provides beautiful, healthy soft and hard coral where you can buddy dive
  • The neighbouring Kuda Giri wreck is a firm favorite with any serious diver


Dive Oceanus - Fun Island is a 5* PADI dive center offering high chances of pelagic shark encounters all year round, amazing soft coral and an accessible wreck.

Diving at Fun Island is an intimate, relaxed experience on an island where time stands still. Groups tend to be smaller here due to the size of the island. The center is run by a small team of multilingual staff who are passionate about all the South Male’ atoll has to offer. All PADI courses up to divemaster are on offer and those who are certified can enjoy free nitrox.

Resort Description

Divers find everything they need for a relaxing Maldivian dive experience, from the onsite PADI dive center to the pampering spa and affordable rooms with private beachfront terraces. Relax and refuel at a choice of two restaurants.

Despite the resort being known for its chilled-out vibe, diving in South Male atoll can be fast paced! Fun Island is located near dive sites where chances of shark encounters are high, with sites like Guraidhoo Corner and the famous Kandooma Thila, where you can dive with up to 100 grey reef sharks at once.
