Canareef Dive Center
A PADI authorized dive centre located on the beautiful island of Canareef in the most Southern Addu Atoll, with a multilingual team of dedicated dive professionals. We aim to give our guests an unforgettable and safe underwater experience at one of our 30 spectacular dive sites. Our diving school is located next to the reception and the arrival jetty which is also the gateway to our daily dive adventures.
It is safe to say that diving in Addu Atoll is spectacular! Currents tend to be easier manageable than in other parts of the Maldives, which makes Addu a perfect location for both novice and experienced divers. Our atoll lets you enjoy large manta rays and dive the world famous WWII wreck British Loyalty on the same day. The channels are full of life and big pelagic sightings are not uncommon. Since many of the dive sites are on the outside reefs visibility tends to be well above 20 meters. The inside atoll is home to a large dolphin population who often join boat rides. With a bit of luck it is even possible to meet them under water. Both hawksbill and large green turtles can also be spotted on many dives both inside and outside the atoll. Napoleon wrasses of all sizes are plentiful. However, that is not all: Did we mention the annual whale migration in November?
