What is in 1000 meters depth?

Fuvahmulah - Super excited to be part of the Miyaru project, where National Geographic deep sea cameras system has been deployed at the depth of more than 1000 meters here in Fuvahmulah last month.

This was the first time ever that cameras reached a depth of over 1,000 metres, about 1,400 to be exact, here in the Gnaviyani Atoll, the only one extending south of the equator in the southern hemisphere.
We are super excited and honoured that Miyaru project chose Divepoint Fuvahmulah and our new boat for this incredible project that will surely go down in history.

What has been recorded in more 1000 meters?
The bluntnose sixgills shark, the gulper shark, the frilled shark, tiger sharks, sand tiger sharks, thresher sharks, lantern sharks (the one glowing in the dark), huge quantity of eels. Click here for the whole article:

MANTA TALK: Reproduction

Did you know?
 > Manta Talk

Scientists speculation is that mainly male manta rays jump out of the water to attract the attention of the females – the bigger the male manta ray is and the more powerful it falls back into the water the movements of the ocean increases and it’s more likely a female notices it.
Their mating ritual is to perform a mating train, where several male rays follow one female manta, all of them trying to impress her and become her first choice to mate.
Manta rays are ovoviviparous – they develop inside eggs and when the egg shell breaks open, the mama manta will eventually calve a new born. So they are fish but give birth like a mammal. Pregnancy lasts for more than one year – usually only one pup at a time!

OUr Guesthouse on Fuvahmulah is READY FOR DIVERS

In June 2022 we opened our guesthouse "Divepoint Residence" on Fuvahmulah. With this we have created a place where Divepoint divers are among themselves and can end the days together with freshly cooked food. Everything is designed for the divers daily routine.
The guesthouse is located in the south of the islands and is only 400m from the dive center and 600m from the harbor and our dive boat.

The 6 air-conditioned rooms have been freshly renovated and the furniture made from local coconut palm. On request, our own restaurant serves 3 fresh meals a day (breakfast, lunch and dinner), coordinated with our dive center, so there are no long waits. Of course, a touch of German thoroughness always resonates.

We are looking forward to your visit!

New Divepoint Fuvahmulah is open and ready to take you underwater

Welcome to the new Divepoint Center on Fuvahmulah which is located on the equator between two South Atolls - Addu and Huvadhoo.
Our new boat is ready and our amazing team who was working on it since a while, finally took it down to the south just in time for the opening. Our boats are equipped with the Electronic Rescue and Locating System ENOS, the safest equipment on the market to protect our divers from any possibility to get lost. ENOS combines GPS-Navigation and Radio Frequency. It is independent of external technologies. It is absolutely autonomous and does not require support from SAR (Search And Rescue) or Coast Guards. The crew of the dive boat can initiate the rescue operation immediately. A big advantage, especially in remote areas and during dive-safaris.

DivePoint Rannalhi with ENOS

Maldive’s 1st Resort with the best safety for divers

Bergisch Gladbach/Male‘ - Since years Maldives are highly desirable to divers. Here, the Indian Ocean shows off its best side, thanks to the warm nutritious water and to currents. But specifically the last point may change an eventful dive into a horror trip – when divers are swept away by currents and not found anymore. Large-scale search operations are the result which do not always end successfully …

That will now come to an end for Marcus Hauck, owner of dive center “DivePoint” located on island Rannalhi in the South-Male atoll. Since March 2020 he has ENOS onboard, the electronic rescue system for divers. > Read press release
