Dive sites include Maamagili, suitable for beginners and those who have never dived before, Aa Thila for the more experienced, and Thinfushi Beru Tila for advanced divers. Our dive centre offers 37 incredible dive sites, two wreck sites and night diving, all within a short boat ride offshore. Two diving sessions are hosted daily, with at least one trained monitor for every four divers. The dive centre also has a Euro Divers five-star PADI certification for complete peace of mind. Courses include Discover Scuba Diving, Scuba Diver (leading to PADI Scuba Diver certification), and an Open Water Diver Course. The latter lasts five to six days and leads to an internationally-recognised PADI scuba diving certificate and a card that entitles you to rent equipment and dive anywhere in the world to a depth of 18m during the day. NITROX diving courses are also available.
