Ocean Dive Centre
Ocean Dive Centre divers can enjoy the variety of 20 local dive sites, suitable for beginners
to more experienced divers. The sites include thrilling thilas, outside reef sites
and channel dives.
We dive all of Rasdhoo Atoll, from North to South and East to West. With only one
other resort nearby, Ocean Dive Centre divers will generally have the luxury of being the
only divers on site!
In the small Rasdhoo Atoll there is no specific season for the mantas and you have
the chance to see them on various dive sites throughout the year. There is usually
a higher concentration of mantas in the months of December and March. White tip
reef sharks can be seen on almost every dive, and the sighting of grown black tips
is common. Grey reef sharks can be seen at Madivaru Corner and Kuramathi Thila,
the best time being around Feburary. A big highlight is our "Big Blue" where you
have a good chance year-round to see hammerhead sharks!
Divers who wish, can dive the house reef with a dive guide upon request. On the
inner West side, we rarely have current. It is a nice spot for an easygoing night
dive, where we have moray eels, a few lobster, and always present is a big school
of barracuda. This site is a great for beginners wishing to gain expereience in
a safe environment.
Our large lagoon is well protected from current and an ideal location for all of
our course training sessions. Usually good visibility prevails and with the house
reef just a few meters away, there is always plenty to see!
