Your safety is our priority!
Prodivers believes that safety is paramount while diving. To help ensure that your diving with us is kept not only enjoyable, but also safe, we have safety standards in place across our dive centers.
Kuredu is home to a recompression chamber with an on-site hyperbaric medical team. The chamber has been up and running since 2006 and offers an additional safety feature to our operations. The chamber staff are always on standby, serving not only the local resorts, but also the numerous liveaboard / safari boats that venture up into the northern Atolls of the Maldives.

Whilst we all work hard to minimise the risks associated with diving, here at Prodivers we still recommend all divers have Dive Insurance. Many generic holiday insurances either won’t cover scuba diving or limit diving to a maximum of 12 meters, because of this Prodivers recommends all divers have dedicated dive insurance to cover all their diving needs. There are various options on the market and one of the options available are with DAN which offer a flexible range of dive insurance options.
