Dhigurah is located in South Ari Atoll, a 20 minutes’ flight or 1 hour 30 minutes’ speedboat drive from Male.

What to expect

A large area of the island isn’t populated and left in wilderness. It also has a large sandbank at its tip. The waters around are home to whale sharks, manta rays and Dolphins.

The island is home to a large resident population of juvenile whale sharks, a secondary nursery where a largely male population reside for 20 or so years before they reach sexual maturity.

Dive Service

Oceanholic has a range of equipment available to hire. The centre offers all PADI courses up to Dive Master.

Diving is from a 17m traditional Maldivian boat (dhoni) designed specifically for diving and snorkelling excursions. The dhoni is equipped with safety gear including Oxygen, First Aid Kit and signalling devices and life jackets and has a marine toilet onboard.

We think…

This is the place to come for guaranteed whale shark encounters, year-round.
