Dive Centre and Marine Lab
A long-time magnet for scuba divers and snorkellers alike, the Maldives are home to a magnificent array of wildlife. A trip below the surface reveals an explosion of colour, from tropical fish to coral gardens. The Maldives are the only habitat where whale sharks, the largest fish in the world, appear all year round. You are likely to encounter these magnificent creatures up close at the protected dive site, just a short boat trip from the resort. Whatever your level of experience, Anantara’s Dive Centre will make you feel at home under the waves. Enrol in a PADI certification course to earn a license recognised internationally, opening up a whole new world for your discovery. Or, for a leisurely afternoon of wildlife exploration, sign up for a Bubblemaker intro course. For more experienced divers, Anantara offers access and transport to a number of nearby reefs. Discuss with the dive master to customise your ideal dive excursion.
All divers at the Anantara Dive Centre require an orientation dive, unless you have logged a dive within the last three months in the Maldives. The orientation dive consists of a dive on our nearby house reef or another local dive site with an instructor who will get you to demonstrate basic diving skills. After completion, you’re ready to move on to more advanced dives or courses, depending on your level and certifications.
PADI Diving Courses
PADI, the Professional Association of Diving Instructors, is the largest and most well-respected diving association in the world. PADI instructors are well-trained and very knowledgeable, so you will always be in safe hands. Anantara’s Dive Centre offers a number of PADI courses, from Open Water Diver certification for novices all the way to Rescue Diver for scuba experts. The Dive Centre will do their best to find a programme and instructor that fits your experience and goals. Small class sizes mean safe, comfortable and enjoyable lessons and no one could ask for a better or more beautiful classroom than the great Indian Ocean.
Enjoy a tranquil morning of gliding around the lagoon, or pick up the speed and find a fun new way to get your afternoon workout. Sit-atop kayaks, whether tandem or solo, transparent or solid, are one of the best ways to experience the beauty of our Maldivian paradise at your own pace. Explore secluded beaches and hidden lagoons, or simply drift over the clear blue waters gazing at the marine life teeming below.
Sailing has long been an integral part of the sea-faring culture of the Maldives. At Anantara, we invite you to take the once-in-a-lifetime chance to set sail in one of the world’s most stunning marine destinations aboard a graceful catamarans or our private yacht. Whether you are a sea-hardened sailing expert, ready to embark on a solo voyage into the horizon, or a novice landlubber, eager to soak up the sun and the sights and leave the steering to the skipper, we can customise an excursion suited to your tastes.
Play among the manta rays or watch a clownfish darting through his sea anemone. Spot a whale shark lurking in the shallows. Borrow a pair of fins and a snorkel to get up close to the exotic aquatic life of the Maldives without the weight of a scuba tank. The tranquil, crystal clear waters of the island offer unrivalled opportunities for fish viewing.
Skip along the glassy surface of the ocean, the breeze whipping through your hair, your heart pounding. Windsurfing is the closest you can get to flying, with you feet still planted firmly on the ground – or rather, on the water! With all the power of the wind behind you, and your expert instructors showing you the way, you’ll be skimming across the mirror-like surface of the lagoon in no time.
