DivePoint Rannalhi

Very well-equipped dive center under German-speaking management by Marcus Hauck & Team. His own enthusiasm for diving and the fascinating underwater world of the Maldives made him stay in the Maldives in the 1980s. The base in the South Male Atoll is located on the western outer reef with direct access to the house reef.

Family friendly resort, Divepoint Rannalhi is also the best place to learn diving during your vacation . Beautiful & accessible lagoon for all the training & open water dives !

DIVE SITES RANNALHI

South Male Atoll offers many diving highlights in the immediate area. All of our dive spots are within 45 minutes navigation time. There are daily morning and afternoon boat trips to the most beautiful dive sites. For beginners as well as for the “very experienced ones” – we have the possibility to dive at Thilas, where we are able to do easy dives up to a max. depth of 18m and explore fields of anemones, as far as the eye can see. Or let yourself drift with the current through the numerous channels around Rannalhi to encounter surprises like sharks, turtles, dolphins, eagle rays, different stingrays and in summer we have good chances to see manta rays.

The house reef with a maximum depth of about 22 meters is very spacious, perfect for unguided house reef dives as well as guided early morning and night diving.  

“Now we know why we learned to dive – it is simply fantastic here”.

EARTH DAY 2024 🌍

Yesterday the teams of Adaaran Club Rannalhi joined forces with their guests and our divers to take part in the Earth Days Activities.
Every matter counts, so there was plenty of things to do to help making the World a cleaner place. 🌴🍀🎋
From tree planting, island cleaning and a beach snorkel clean-up there was plenty of activities to join. 
Our certified divers took part in our special underwater Jetty Cleaning, removing an amazing amount of garbage from the ocean floor right in front of our beaches. 🤿
As these cleaning are a regular part of our routine anyway, it raises some additional awareness on special occasions like #EarthDay2024 and its an eay way to involve people and have some fun all together.

Big shout out for everybody who helped to organize and took part in this amazing event!

Top dive center on Rannalhi As an occasional diver - non-professional - I was given a thorough refresher. Safety's first! Which I would rate as extremely positive. The following dives were very well organized and I felt very well looked after. My wife was also allowed to go snorkeling on the dive boat. Mika and Evelyn's diving center is 100% recommended! Horst

Thank you for the great adventure and the wonderful time! Beautiful fish, corals, clear water and a team that offers you a family atmosphere. I got my “Open Water Diver” diving license at Divepoint Rannahlie together with my sister. Many thanks again to our trainer Denny, who put in a lot of effort and answered all of my questions and concerns. Thanks to him, we were able to complete the training without any problems and with a lot of confidence in our newly learned skills. During the training I completed dives on the house reef and several dives in the open sea. The underwater world on offer there is breathtaking in its diversity and beauty. The diving breaks between dives were also very entertaining thanks to the openness of the trainers and companions. Overall I felt very comfortable. I can recommend it to everyone. Thanks again to the team for the great time and the great memories.

Unforgettable dream vacation, great diving station! We had an unforgettable time on Rannalhi in March 2024! Safety was always the top priority when diving. The fantastic dive sites were so diverse and beautiful to look at. Every single day and dive will remain in our memories forever. A huge thank you to Mika (for his patience 🤪😉) and Evelyn, as well as the entire team with whom we were able to experience all these unforgettable moments. Kind regards, see you again soon!

That's how we wanted it :-) So dear Evelyn, dear Mika and Meer and all of you :-) Of course Marcus and Anna too!! My wife hasn't dived in a long time and wanted to get back in and see what else was going on. So, everything went from very soft to (again) currents with sharks. Everything was perfectly organized and nice and relaxed. Everyone in the team was very helpful, professional and (full service)...no need to drag around clothes. It's not a snap but very, very worthwhile. Thanks from T&F from BM

Once Divepoint Rannahli always Rannahli If you want a relaxing vacation and want to explore the underwater world of the Maldives, this is the place for you ♥️ we had a great time in March 2024 with incredibly cool people from the Divepoint diving center. I have been on many trips but this was the most beautiful one ever. The team at the diving center had a new highlight for us to dive with every day. We saw tiny things but also a lot of big things, from snails to sharks. The dives were well briefed and led excellently so that you felt safe and comfortable at all times and in every situation. I would like to thank the entire team for the many unforgettable moments and the wonderful time and we will definitely see each other again 🫶 once Rannahli Divepoint always Rannalhi 🥰

Fantastic diving vacation in February/March 2024 A destination for the perfect diving holiday 🤿🐠🦈🦀 We (my daughter and I) got our diving license at DivePoint Rannalhi in 2018 and gained our first diving experiences here. This year we were here for the third time. For us the perfect diving center we trust 👌🏻🫶 A big compliment and a big thank you to the entire DivePoint team for the expert and great support!!! The perfect place for diving for beginners and professionals, both in the house reef and at the numerous other spots. We can thoroughly recommend this diving center and are already looking forward to our next diving trip 😀 true to the motto 'Dive with friends'...
