Today, for the first dive we went to Dega Thila, which is uniquely formed and home to thousands of invertebrate’s. This reef has lately been famous for seeing Frog Fish, and today we found 4 frog fish. Despite the poor visibility close observation on sponges and black coral bushes offered a great variety of small stuff to see.
The second dive was to Maalhos Thila, considered as one of the best in terms of hard coral and soft coral varieties, offers one of the best coral dives in Maldives. The jumping time couldn’t be any perfect, with almost no current we managed to do an enjoyable an easy dive.
The third dive was planned for Dhonkalo Thila but the current was running in, and after a brief explanation to the divers about the poor current direction, we decided to dive Dhonkalo Thila tomorrow morning and switch today’s third dive to Ran Faru.
Located on the north side of Maalhos Thila, this reef is a common site for a third dive when current conditions are poor. The main attraction here is the caves and the chunk of coral block near the corner. These areas are covered with different colors of soft coral and the hard coral growth is average. Due to the sandy bottoms here, Leopard sharks visit this dive site to rest on the soft grounds, and seeing one here will be an unforgettable experience.
