Scuba diving information in South Male Atoll , Center, Maldives

Kandus, or channels, are a major feature of South Male diving. On the eastern reef wall there are 6 channels through which a huge volume of water gushes, bringing with it all the nutrients to attract large quantities of marine life. Coral coverage in South Male is not what it is in other areas so if pristine reefs are your thing, North Male and Ari Atoll may have more to offer. The diving in South Male on the other hand features fish in schools of sizeable numbers, big pelagic fish, plenty of soft corals and caves as well as one very good wreck, and is considered one of the best liveaboard diving areas in the Maldives. The atoll is separated from North Male Atoll by the Vaadhoo Kandu. This means it has strong ties to Male in terms of economic and cultural influence, and that the travel time from the international airport to many parts of South Male is comparable to that from North Male.
