Scuba Diving in The Maldives

Reader Reviews:

Dive Site: Vadoo House Reef

Location: South Male Atoll

Description: Reef

Depth: 10 - 20 metres (30 - 65 feet)

Visibility: 30 metres in December (100 feet)

Rating: ****

From the boat the dive started quite shallow at about 10 metres. Large coral heads with the most unbelievable amounts of small fish. Large shoals of sweetlips, wrasses and lots of small Maldivian reef fish and I saw two very good sized lion fish. The dive progressed to about 20 metres along a sand bottom where we saw sand eels and five very large clams. The current picked up as we progressed along the wall and we continued to see a good range of reef fish. The dive finished and some of the group saw a good size ray on the ascent. Very enjoyable easy dive if you lake large quantities of small fishes. Very good photography opportunities too.
