Day 5: Scuba Diving Kandooma Thila

A difficult dive with a strong current.

The teardrop-shaped, 300 m-long Thila, is one of the most exciting dive sites in the Maldives and has fantastic scenery with lots of beautiful soft and hard corals and incredibly rich fish life. The reef top starts at 16m (at the eastside 20m) which makes a quick descent necessary as there are usually very strong currents.

There are grey reef and white tip sharks, barracudas, huge tunas, big eye trevally and big groups of eagle rays, some sleeping nurse sharks under the coral blocks on top of the reef as well as all common smaller kinds of reef fish to see.

Not to forget: many big green turtles can be seen on the reef top or hiding under the overhangs. But – depending on the current – it is a tough dive only for experienced divers.
