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 !

LocationSouth Male Atoll
Dive Sites> 50 dive spots


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”.


We have compiled an overview of the 30 dive sites in a pdf document.

Due to the increased amount of marine debris in our oceans, poaching and unintentional boat strikes, sea turtles are at risk of becoming sick, injured or stranded.
Of the 7 sea turtle species, 6 are listed by the IUCN Red List as either vulnerable, endangered, or critically endangered.

Today is ***World Sea Turtle Day***, so we try to raise awareness of what each of us can you do to protect them:

🐢 At night, keep bright lights off the beach to encourage sea turtles to nest and to ensure hatchlings can find their way to the sea.

🐢 Keep beaches trash free to avoid turtles mistaking it for food or getting caught in plastic loops. Single use plastic bags are often mistaken by sea turtles for their favorite food: 🪼.

🐢 Report sick, injured and stranded sea turtles to the official, local authorities.

🐢 Be cognizant of your plastic use: reduce, reuse, refuse, and recycle.Choose sustainable alternatives and select sustainable materials.

🐢 Choose reef-safe sunscreen to keep our oceans healthy and toxin free.

🐢 Be aware when boating – watch out for marine life on and below the surface. Maintain a slow speed when traveling close to shore to avoid accidentally injuring a sea turtle.

Not only our divers enjoy a stroll around our beautiful house reef 🐙🪸
This octopus enjoyed our 'self grown' mini reef at about 3m, which is an absolute beginner friendly spot to spend some first breaths under the water and enjoy some great company 🥰

Not sure how to start your weekend in style? How about putting scuba diving on your bucket list, preferably with us? 🤿
