Explore diving around the Olive Goidhoo

What to see

The Baa Atoll has been awarded UNESCO status for a reason. You won’t be disappointed by the diversity of fish and coral that you’ll see.

If you’re visiting the atoll during manta season, you can expect their orderly feeding behavior to be disbanded while they feed. They bump into each other like bumper cars at a fairground.

Amongst the coral, you’ll find whip coral, dark red sponges, black coral bushes and zoanthids growing like wild mushrooms. The soft corals found in the overhangs are blue, yellow and green; pairs of porcelain crabs rest in anemone coral. You’ll also see large table corals on the reefs.

The small Maldivian sponge snail sits on sandy banks while midnight snapper, small-toothed emperor, moon fusiliers and moon wrasse swim by. Coral rock cod are covered in florescent speckles.

In the channels, you’ll find eagle rays, Napoleon wrasses, turtles and sharks.

Description

Aqua Blue Fehendhoo is based on Fehendhoo Island, a short boat ride from Goidhoo.

Fehendhoo, Goidhoo and Fulhadhoo make up a small independant atoll within Baa Atoll called Goifulhafehendhoo. The atoll offers the chance to dive with mantas (seasonal), turtles and lots of colorful reef fish. 

Daily snorkelling and diving trips depart for the atoll's inner and outer reef. During season, trips to Hanifaru Bay are organised on a weekly basis. 

Full/half day trips are available on request to the southwest part of Baa Atoll where you will experience completely different underwater topography compared with Goifulhafehendhoo Atoll. 

A full range of PADI recreational training is available, and Aqua Blue provides complimentary transfers from Olive Goidhoo before and after each dive trip.
