Explore diving around the Plumeria Maldives

What to see

This atoll is the Maldives’ most easterly and isn’t protected from the currents during the north-east monsoon. This helps attract sharks and mantas. There is also the possibility of seeing the ocean’s placid giant – a whale shark.

The upper parts of the channels’ outer reefs tend to have better corals. Some of the hard corals burst with color as though Jackson Pollock flicked paint on them.

The variety of marine life around the Vaavu atoll is extensive. Your dive log will fill up faster than you drift through the atoll’s channels.

Dive Center


  • Most of the famous dive sites in the Vaavu Atoll are close to this dive center - even the house reef is one of the best spots in the area
  • Enjoy an abundance of big fish - including sharks and mantas - as well as cave, deep, wall, channel and night diving
  • Dive from fast and modern boats, with sundecks for relaxing on in between dives
  • Free nitrox for all certified divers


Plumeria Diving and Water Sports Center in the Maldives offers the chance to dive with large numbers of big marine life, from whale sharks to mantas.

Whale sharks, mantas and various kinds of reef sharks are abundant here. You may see more big marine life in one dive than you have in your whole dive career.

Maldivian reefs are equally breathtaking at night. Nurse sharks as well as zebra sharks are nocturnal and active in the evening, while transparent creatures not seen in the sunlight are now visible in the warm glow of a dive light.

There’s downtime in every diver’s day, and what better way to enjoy a break than on some of the most beautiful beaches on the globe.
