Whale shark “Dhohokko”

Whale shark “Dhohokko”

Do you remember that we encountered a whale shark on 28th September 2017 while diving in Rasdhoo Madivaru?

In fact, whale sharks can be identified by the spots between the fins on their side and their mouth. We sent pictures from our whale shark to the “Maldivian Whale Shark Research Programme (MWSRP)” and the whale shark we encountered wasn’t identified so far.

He is now registered with number #330 and as we were the first divers who spotted him, we had the honor to give him a name: “Dhohokko”.

That’s the name of a very famous Maldivian singer.



Repeater of the month

Like almost every year we could again welcome Markus from Switzerland here in Velidhu.

He celebrated his 200th dive with us during this holiday. He did amazing 70 dives with us here and out of his 267 actual dives, 254 were done in Velidhu!!!
