Fuvahmulah

Fuvahmulah’s unique location make it one of the Maldives’ top destinations for those who are feeling a little adventurous. Since the construction of the harbor in 2004, fishermen have been discarding fish waste in the surrounding waters. This has given rise to a healthy population of curious tiger sharks that come up to feed. At peak time there are up to 5 to 10 individual sharks. The atoll’s famous tiger sharks can be seen every day, but it is also home to hammerhead sharks, thresher sharks, silvertip sharks, big schools of barracudas, yellowfin tuna, bonitos and more!

All the divers will have a detailed safety briefing by KANDU divemasters regarding shark behaviour, group conduct and emergency procedures prior to the dive.
