Diving

Ocean-Pro Divers SCUBA Centre featuring Guided Diving and Snorkeling Boat Trips, Equipment and Accessory Sales, Rental and Repair, and a complete PADI Instructional Program .Watersports Center for rental and instruction, including Catamarans and Kayaks.

Ocean-Pro 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-Pro 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!

Experienced divers can dive the house reef independently in buddy teams, guided dives are available 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 great for beginners wishing to dive independently in buddy teams.

At the South side of the island, we have our second House Reef entry point. Easy going, but a little navigation knowledge might be necessary. Eagle rays can be spotted there and even black tip reef sharks. There is a big school of jack and batfish waiting for you right at the jetty. Turtles and octopuses are seen regularly.

The east side of the House Reef is the also outside reef, where divers should be aware of the current. There is a good chance to see all types of fish: Big napoleon, eagle rays, white tip and black tip reef sharks, stingrays, octopuses and all types of juvenile and adult reef fishes. 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!
