Wow, what a month!

With flat, mirror-like ocean and beautiful, zero-wind, sunny days for the most part, July was a good time to be at Kuredu.

For starters, a bowmouth guitar shark made an appearance at Fushivaru, followed by another guitar shark and even a hammerhead shark, along with the many manta rays.

The amount of fish was staggering! Juvenile redtooth triggerfish, anthias, fussiliers, trevallies to name a few. We snorkelled with mantas at the sandbank and Dhanifaru, and even had sightings on the house reef.

Our divers saw bottlenose dolphins underwater at Mashura and Latheef, and risso dolphins on the surface. We spotted mobula rays at many of the dive sites across the Lhaviyani. At Peak and KFFC, there were schools of eagle rays and silver tip sharks together with grey reef sharks.

On each and every diving and snorkelling trip, our guests saw something special, something out of the ordinary, and were super happy to be able to tick so many amazing encounters off their underwater bucket lists.

Even our Discover Scuba Diving students were lucky to see green turtles, juvenile reef sharks, eagle rays and stingrays during their lagoon dive.

Thank you for diving and snorkelling with us in July! We are all excited to find out what the rest of August will have in store for us so if you can’t make it to Kuredu, we promise to keep you up to date!
