What to see

The North Male Atoll is famous for its variety of species. Elsewhere in the Maldives, divers don’t gape at beautiful corals, but in the North Male Atoll, many of the reefs are extremely healthy and provide shelter for a ton of marine life. Frogfish, moray eels, nudibranchs, schools of fusiliers and hundreds of other colorful fish species reside here.

While the neighboring Ari Atoll is more famed for its pelagic species, spotting something big is not a rarity in the North Male Atoll either. It is not uncommon to see manta rays, whale sharks, hammerheads, hawksbill turtles, grey reef sharks and eagle rays on occasion.

Wherever you dive in the North Male Atoll, you are sure to be astounded by both the variety of environments and species you encounter in just a few dives.
