Explore diving around the Isle Royal Inn

What to see

The Fuvahmulah Atoll's seven sharks – thresher, tiger, whale sharks, oceanic whitetip, silvertip, grey reef and hammerhead – are what makes this atoll's diving unique and some days you'll see them all in one dive! There's also an abundance of rays, from black oceanic mantas to mobula. The reefs around Fuvahmulah are unspoiled and are perfect for underwater photography.

Dive Center

Highlights

  • Experience the thrill of guaranteed tiger shark encounters, and observe thresher sharks in the shallows of the cleaning stations at dusk
  • Take a break between dives to refuel at the cozy cafe on the harbor side, enjoying the ocean breeze under the shade of the trees
  • Lectures on different species of marine life and educational awareness programs are provided at the dive school, and it is one of the best places to get your Shark and Manta Specialties
  • Tick the ultimate set of sharks off your diving bucket list (sometimes in one dive!): tiger, thresher, hammerheads, silver tip, whale, grey reef and white tip


Description

Fuvahmulah Dive School provides exclusive pelagic oceanic diving on the equator, with a big pelagic nursery and shallow cleaning station nearby for guaranteed shark encounters!

All year round, this isolated island is surrounded by thousands of pelagic creatures - you can see 7 types of rare sharks in one dive.  Up until 2017, when Fuvahmulah Dive School started conducting underwater research, the beauty and secrets of this mysterious atoll were largely undiscovered.

The dive school is in an excellent location in the harbor area, just in front of the market and cozy cafe, where you can have snacks/coffee/tea in between the dives and have a rest under the shade of the beautiful trees. It takes less than a minute to reach the diving boat.  

Each dive includes a comprehensive briefing, a thorough explanation of pelagic and shark behavior, and full equipment assistance. The team are local islanders who are familiar with local weather and ocean conditions, and all the guides are qualified in Shark Specialty and are specially trained for Tiger Zoo visits.

Resort Description

Isle Royal Inn is a Maldivian guesthouse just an eight minute stroll from the beautiful harbour and dive center, known for its epic exploratory dive trips

As one of the Maldives’ least explored atolls, Fuvahmulah is the place to go for unchartered adventures. Its remote position, deep waters and exposure to swell have created a magical landscape both above and below the waves. Encounters with tiger sharks are 100% guaranteed year-round, and thresher sharks can be observed moving into the shallows of the cleaning stations in the dim light of early morning or dusk. In short, it's a pelagic paradise.

The comfortable guesthouses all have a king-sized bed, ensuite bathroom, a terrace and air conditioning. The restaurant serves up the freshest seafood from local fisherman, as well as pizzas, curries, smoothies and coffees. Between dives discover old Buddhist ruins and ancient mosques, have a picnic on Thoondu beach with its shiny gem-like white pebbles, or snorkel along the drop off at the edge of the reef. The waves here are perfect for surfing too, and the resort runs excursions to see dolphins playing in the wild.
