Velidhu is located in the North of Ari Atoll.
Ari Atoll is famous for its marine diversity and especially for its sharks and manta rays. Manta rays can be found within 10 minutes boat drive from the island, depending on the season. Encounters with this gentle giants of the Indian Ocean can be organized for diving and snorkeling.
If you are looking for a small, cozy, romantic and traditional bare foot island, then Velidhu Island is your place to be.
Our fully equipped PADI 5* dive centre offers the full range of diving courses from beginner to professional level. The protected lagoon and the Velidhu house reef are perfect to start your diving adventure or simply practice your diving skills.
We offer regular morning dives, full day trips and the breath taking early morning dives to Rasdhoo Madivaru where you’re guaranteed of diving with grey reef sharks and where you have a high chance to encounter one of the hammerhead sharks.
The dive shop also offers night dives, both regular night dives as well as fluorescent night dives. The latter one includes a special UV light which gives the corals and marine life somewhat of an otherworldly natural glow, like something from a fantasy movie. The night dive can be done by boat to one of the nearby Thilas or at the Velidhu house reef.
Early morning Rashdoo
Having your breakfast on the sundeck of the traditional Dhoni, accompanied by the stunning Maldivian sunrise, followed by diving with sharks and pelagic fish, is a dream come true for many divers.
Rashdoo Madivaru dive site is located in the entry channel to Rasdhoo Atoll. Due to the medium to strong current which runs through the channel, this place attracts a lot of sharks and bigger species.
