Diving in Laamu Atoll

 

 

laamu 250LAAMU ATOLL’S SCUBA IS SUITED TO BEGINNERS AS WELL AS ADVANCED DIVERS. MANTAS ARE COMMON IN ITS CHANNELS, AND BUDDHIST RUINS CAN BE FOUND ON GAN - WHICH ALSO HAS 4 MILES (7KM) OF BEACH.

Laamu has fewer channels than many atolls which reduces currents and improves visibility. The scuba is suited to beginners as well as advanced divers.

The inside walls of Laamu are shallow (82 feet / 25 meters), and with reduced currents are easier for less experienced divers to manage. You can enjoy the soft corals and drifting ornate ghost pipefish - an oceanic centipede with wings. You can also explore the mini thilas (submerged islands) which offer overhangs and the possibility of reef sharks or schooling mobula rays. [PADI TRAVEL]
