Diving in Meemu Atoll

Explore diving in Meemu Atoll

The atoll’s inner reefs offer deeper depths for advanced divers. The chance to see mantas, various reef sharks, and the possibility of a rare visit by a whale shark, is what lures divers to Meemu Atoll. Larger fish such as tuna and grouper swim amongst the disco ball flashes coming from swirls of schooling mackerel.

Turtles move through the coral gardens and the dense staghorn resembles a hedgerow. Red sea fans bloom from rocks. Meemu’s diverse marine life doesn’t end here. You’ll be busy writing in-between dives. If your encounter with mantas and sharks has left you wanting more – soft and hard corals, channels, submerged pinnacles, walls, overhangs, and steep drop-offs are all waiting for you.
