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!
