Dive Centre Activities
As the first Dive Centre in this atoll, MERIDIS visits completely untouched dive sites, and therefore offers an exclusive and unique diving experience. Several times a day the team will transport you using the customized Maldivian Dhoni (boat) to over 25 different sites in absolutely pristine diving areas.
Many of the dive sites are situated on the current-rich outer reef areas, which provide thrilling experiences to the advanced dive-guests as well the enthusiastic scooter-divers. Locate and identify new fishes and unique colours during one of the organised night dives.
For underwater photographers and those who enjoy calmer activities we recommend the sheltered inner atoll reefs, which offer a splendid array of macro objects.
Dive safety is the primary concern; therefore MERIDIS use only the most modern Bauer compressors with Pure Air Certification, as well as Nitrox facilities.
The Dive Centre also offers the opportunity to undertake the complete range of PADI courses from Open Water Diver through Divemaster, including many PADI Specialties such as Enriched Air Nitrox, Underwater Photographer, and Wreck Diver. We can video your personal underwater experience for you to keep as a souvenir forever!
Snorkelers, and anyone interested in trying scuba diving will enjoy the first time under water by experiencing the fascination of diving with our »Discover Scuba Diving« introductory course; taught by Internationally-certified PADI Instructors in a wide variety of languages.
A general primer in marine biology and extensive library on local marine life will enhance your enjoyment of the underwater environment.
Customer Service is the number-one priority, and with this in mind we offer total flexibility in the dive experience with MERIDIS!
