Diving in Noonu Atoll

 

 

noonu 250NOONU ATOLL’S SCUBA IS SUITED TO INTERMEDIATE AND ADVANCED DIVERS, BUT BEGINNERS CAN PROGRESS TOO. DRIFT DIVE THE CHANNELS, MEET GREY REEF SHARKS, AND EXPLORE A CHRISTMAS TREE SHAPED PINNACLE.

The Noonu Atoll offers diving for all levels of experience but is better suited to intermediate divers. If you’re staying on the atoll, then beginners will have the opportunity to progress and experience the thrill of challenging drift dives.

Located on the outer reef of the atoll’s southern tip is the Raafushi dive – suitable for all levels. The top of the reef is 10-15 feet (3-5 meters) deep and drops off to 39-46 feet (12-14 meters). Expect nudibranchs, and redtoothed triggerfish with their distinctive red teeth that look like incisors. As you navigate the reef’s long crack, you might see a nocturnal nurse shark having a snooze.
