Diving in Haa Alif Atoll

Explore diving in Haa Alif Atoll

The channels in the Haa Alif Atoll are much wider, and shallower, than in the rest of the Maldives. This reduces the currents and makes diving suited to beginners.

In the south-west is the Filadhoo Wreck. It rests at just 46 feet (14 meters), and is covered in a variety of soft and hard corals. Table coral surrounds the wreck, and schools of groupers, snappers and fusiliers swim through its structure. Eagle rays occasionally swoop around the hull like a fighter jet in an old war movie. If you’re lucky, a whitetip reef shark may also be patrolling.


You’ll admire the reef’s overhangs which are covered with blue, pink, yellow and green soft corals. Turtles and an occasional manta will swim above you.
