Kuredu Express is one of the most famous dive sites in the Lhaviyani Atoll. Express gets its name from the strong currents that can flow here. There is a sandy channel leading to the corner of the reef, where there are terraces at different depths – a great place to stop and watch the action going on around you. Grey reef sharks, eagle rays, large tuna, napoleons, stingrays and barracuda are all found here along with a huge school of jack fish. Along the outreef there are 2 large bays in the reef which have some brightly coloured soft corals, lots of collared butterfly fish and schools of humpback snappers. The dive is rounded off with a leaf fish close to the top reef.
