Learning to scuba dive and completing your open water dive course is something we feel everyone should do – the world is 70% water after all and if you’re wanting to explore and travel the world you’ll be missing out on heaps if you cant enjoy the big blue!

So why not complete your open water dive course in paradise and dive into the crystal clear waters of the Maldives?

We’ve teamed up with the awesome crew of Fulidhoo Dive on Fulidhoo Island in the Vaavu Atoll of the Maldives to offer a full range of PADI dive courses – from open water right through to Rescue diver – so no whether you’re getting started with scuba diving or looking to further your training you can make the most of this stunning island!

Fulidhoo is easily accessible from Male Airport – just a 75 minute speedboat transfer – so within a few hours of landing you can be relaxing on white sandy beaches surrounded by palm trees…which is what the Maldives is all about!


“The diving is as beautiful as the island itself – and less than half the price tag of a Maldives resort!”
Sarah, UK


The scuba diving in Fulidhoo is nothing short of epic – with a vast array of dive sites and marine life. Drift along in the ocean currents across stunning coral gardens, cruise alongside white tip reef sharks, through huge shoals of colourful fish and even experience an adrenaline fuelled night dive surrounded by heaps of nurse sharks – diving in the Maldives is amazing!

Throughout your scuba dive course at this 5* PADI Dive centre you’ll be taught by qualified and experienced instructors who will guide you through your course.

Whichever course (or combination of courses!) you choose to do you’ll leave Fulidhoo as a competent and confident scuba diver with a world recognised qualification.

And of course if you’re already a qualified diver and just want to enjoy the amazing scuba diving that Fulidhoo Island has to offer check out our Scuba and Stay Packages instead!
