Dive with tiger sharks in the deep South

Do you want to dive with Tiger Sharks, guaranteed all year round? Well you have to come to Fuvahmulah!

Fuvahmulah and its underwater world is very unique and special were you can see big pelagic fish on (almost) every dive, mainly tiger sharks! It is the largest known population of tiger sharks in the world and the only known mating site of tiger sharks and thresher sharks. As well we have a good population of Grey reef sharks, Silvertips, Barracudas and some more big species the whole year around. Out of that you can find Wale sharks, Hammerheads, Mola Mola, Oceanic White tips and Oceanic Mantas.

What makes Fuvahmulah special? Its location. Alone in the Indian Ocean and not within an atoll, there are no nearby neigh-boring islands and no shallower areas; here the coast and the high seas meet directly. On one hand, this means that the weather conditions play an important role, because due to the exposed position of the island, the waves are not slowed down but hit the island directly. Nevertheless, we have many dive sites around the island and always one side is in the shadow of the monsoon, so we decide depending on the weather. This is also the reason why we use the electronic emergency call and locating system ENOS on every dive. Because of the strong currents and the remoteness it is even more important to guarantee the safety of our divers and to be able to initiate rescue measures quickly in case of emergency.


Endangered Species Day is a day of recognising what we have before it’s gone. As a shark research NGO based in the Maldives, we take this day to highlight some of the threatened shark species and their relatives that inhabit Maldivian waters and have found refuge in the Maldives shark Sanctuary – a place defying the trend of shark decline and targeted fisheries in the rest of the Indian Ocean.

The Maldives is home to around 40 shark species, of which each species has its own unique biological and behavioural characteristics. With over 100 million sharks a year being killed globally by commercial fisheries alone, it’s of utmost urgency and importance that we focus on further protecting these beautiful creatures. Sharks have roamed the seas long before the dinosaurs, and we all have a responsibility to ensure their future.

@fuvahmulahdivepoint We wanted to highlight this excellent article from @miyaru_org 🙏🏼because we resonate with its message. Once a species goes extinct, it’s gone forever.🦈

Diving with Tiger Sharks - What can you expect?

The tiger shark dive itself is at the harbor entrance and takes place at 10 meters. With little to no current it is a calm dive where we can observe these beautiful animals. As with every dive, you will receive a detailed briefing from our team, in which we explain the rules of conduct and how to deal with tiger sharks.

This unique experience allows you to dive side by side with these fascinating predators without a cage as a protective barrier. Fuvahmulah is known for its tiger shark population and offers the rare opportunity to observe these majestic creatures in their natural environment. It is an exciting and at the same time extraordinary experience, accompanied by experienced dive instructors.

The wild side of the Maldives


The island, close to the equator, differs in several ways from the “typical” Maldives island and thus offers even experienced Maldives vacationers new impressions: Relatively large with 4.94 km², there are several villages with the appropriate infrastructure, a park as a “green lung” and an airport. Here tourists are not separated from the population, you experience Maldivian everyday life.
