Fuvamulah is one of the best shark diving locations on our planet. Its unique underwater topography, pristine reefs and isolated position make it the perfect shark storm with over seven shark species regularly encountered. The island is famous for its resident Tigers, up to 25 tigers can be seen on one dive on the daily Tiger shark feed. If this wasnt enough Fuvamulah also has multiple Thresher Shark cleaning stations and these incredible sharks are also year round residents. Just offshore on the plateau reef system divers regularly encounter schooling Scalloped Hammerheads, Grey Reef Whalers, Oceanic White Tips, Silver Tips and also the Whale Sharks- the largest fish in the Ocean. The fringing reefs host abundant corals and fish species, and as well as the sharks large pelagics like Dogtooth Tuna, Sailfish, Wahoo and Marlin are seen on many dives.
We include 3 dives per day over six days, the tiger feed is a daily dive then we can choose to look for Threshers , Hammers on the Plateau, Wall drift dive, Oceanic white tips in the blue… Tough decisions 🙂
We offer daily afternoon yoga classes with Kristina to relax and unwind. During the week Scott offers Freedive and underwater photography workshops to help improve your water skills.
Dive seasons and weather
The atoll’s proximity to the equator means that the monsoons are less pronounced compared to further north in the Maldives and the weather is pretty stable all year round. The dry north-east monsoon usually runs from December to March and the wet south-west monsoon from May to November. Water temperatures are warm and comfortable, very rarely dropping below 26 – 27C so unless you feel the cold, a 3mm wetsuit is fine.
The private and secure guest house has a restaurant, outdoor swimming pool, a lounge, garden and free WiFi. We have options for twin share or a king bedroom (2 pax/bedroom). All rooms include air conditioning, a private bathroom, bed linen, towels and a patio with pool view and a safety deposit box. 3 daily meals prepared by a local chef

Nicknamed the Galapagos of the Maldives, Fuvahmulah Atoll is an isolated atoll that lies closer to the equator than any other Maldivian island or atoll. Fuvahmulah’s relatively unknown dive sites and isolation make it the perfect choice if you are looking for something a little out of the ordinary. It is ranked one of the best Shark Dive Destinations in the World! The island’s unique underwater topography has a submerged reef extending deep towards the ocean floor and promises pristine reefs and large pelagics such as thresher sharks, tiger sharks and hammerheads. So if you love sharks and are looking for an epic, exploratory dive trip, this isolated and pristine atoll should be at the top of your bucket list!
Fuvahmulah’s tropical woodlands, wetlands, and volcanic pebble beaches are unlike anything else in the Maldives. With lush tropical vegetation, mango landscapes, coconut palms, papaya plantations and various kinds of flowers, Fuwamulah is the only island in the Maldives with freshwater lakes. Its isolated position, exposure to oceanic swell and the deep surrounding waters have combined in a perfect storm of conditions, creating a unique natural environment both above and below the waves.
