Diving in Huvadhoo Atoll

 

 

huvadhoo 250HUVADHOO ATOLL HAS SCUBA FOR BEGINNERS AND ADVANCED DIVERS IN THE MALDIVES’ FAR SOUTH. THE CORALS ARE PRISTINE, AND SHARKS PATROL THE EXHILARATING CHANNELS. TIGER AND WHALE SHARKS CAN ALSO BE SEEN.

The atoll’s central lagoon is 40 miles (65km) across at its widest point and up to 279 feet (85 meters) deep. The substantial outer reef forms a natural barrier to the ocean’s currents, and diving options are available for both beginners and advanced divers. The atoll’s diverse topography includes caves, steep drop-offs and pristine reefs.

There are numerous dive sites located on the inner and outer reefs. Expect vibrant yellow box fish and schools of bigeye trevally spiraling like liquid in a blender. In the depths of the channels, both blacktip and whitetip reef sharks stalk their prey. It’s as though their fins have been dipped in paint. [PADI TRAVEL]
