Do you want to dive with Tiger Sharks, guaranteed ally year round? Well you have to come to Fuvahmulah! What makes Fuvahmulah special is 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. On the other hand, this is exactly what makes Fuvahmulah unique and you can see big 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 & 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.
We offer 3 dives per day: The first dive is usually a blue water dive at the cleaning plateaux. Here the probability is highest that we can see manta rays, hammerheads and thresher sharks. In total we have 18 diving spots that we choose depending on the weather and experience of our guests e.g. at a steep wall where different species can pass by but rather turtles and a lot of fishes. The Tigershark dive is either the second or third dive where you can observe this beautiful creatures.
