Awarded diving paradise

Raa Atoll is one of the northernmost resort atolls of the Maldives. Here we offer daily boat dives, with one tank or two tank possibilities. The pristine reefs of Raa Atoll are still in a great condition. We were the only diving island in this atoll for many years and now there are still very few. Meaning you get to enjoy these dive sites for yourselves and just with your close diving buddies. Very nice soft corals, huge schools of fish and manta rays can be seen here all year round. We have the advantage of being able to drive through our island location in the middle of the atoll to the east and west side of the reef, so we can watch manta rays almost all year round. Let yourself be inspired by this pristine underwater world.
