Scuba Diving in The Maldives
Dive Site: Vadoo Caves
Location: South Male Atoll
Description: Reef / drift
Depth: 5 - 30 metres (15 - 100 feet)
Visibility: 20 metres (65 feet)
A drift dive along a very good reef wall with lots of overhangs and small caves between 10 and 30 metres deep. Lots of nice soft corals and very good fish life. At depth we saw white tip sharks and good sized tuna. We saw lots of good fishes including long nosed bannerfish, loads of parrotfish and good sized surgeonfish. The highlight was a turtle feeding on the reef which was amazingly tame and let us watch him for several minutes. We also saw a very large clown triggerfish which is still the largest I have seen to this date in the Maldives.
