Diving in these areas provides a chance to witness the graceful movements of manta rays and observe their interactions with the cleaning fish.

Night Dives: Experience the magical transformation of the underwater world during a night dive. Diving after sunset reveals a different array of marine creatures that are active at night, such as lobsters, crabs, octopuses, and fascinating bioluminescent organisms.

Dive operators in Fuvahmulah offer specialized tiger shark diving expeditions, allowing you to observe these apex predators up close with the guidance of experienced professionals.

Underwater Caves and Overhangs: Fuvahmulah has an interesting geological structure, with underwater caves and overhangs that divers can explore. These unique formations provide a sense of adventure and offer opportunities to discover hidden marine life, such as colourful reef fish, crustaceans, and even small sharks that seek shelter in these areas.
