The Prodivers centers are conveniently located amidst the best dive sites in the Maldives. From almost bottomless drop-offs with overhangs to gentle sloping reefs along the outer edge of the atolls, from sheltered underwater islands that are havens for schooling fish to channel edges where currents race and big fish roam, at Prodivers we are very lucky – we have it all!

Almost fifty dive sites are spread across the Lhaviyani Atoll, with new sites still being found. The topography results in a wide variety of sites and an astounding array of fish life. Over fifteen species of sharks have been sighted in the Atoll, six of which are regularly seen by divers. Rays are very common, and with the right seasonal winds and currents, you may be lucky enough to meet the majestic manta rays. We’re also fortunate to have a large community green sea turtles right on our doorstep, but there is a lot more on offer than just sharks, mantas and turtles… (Our picks: Fushivaru Thila, Kuredu Caves, Kuredu Express).
The Noon Atoll is one of the more undiscovered areas of the Maldives and offers some fantastic diving. On our full days leaving from Kuredu, Komandoo and Hurawalhi, you can be sure of seeing several sharks, colourful coral and some of the weirdest shaped reefs in the country. The full day diving in Noon is the highlight of many guests’ holidays, and, every time we go, we realize why its dive sites are considered top spots in the Northern Atolls.

South Ari Atoll
South Ari Atoll is home to some of the most famous and well known dive spots across the Maldives and they can all be accessed from Lily Beach and Vakarufalhi. There are over fifty dive sites close by and they offer a huge variety of corals, fish life and, of course, the chance of big fish encounters. Stunning coral formations, incredible colours and a huge variety of fish life have made the Ari Atoll one of the top diving destinations around the world. Add into the mix regular manta ray and whale shark sightings, and it’s clear to understand why people keep coming back for more. (Our picks: Hukuru Elhi Faru and Kuda Rah Thila).
