Run by Alessia Pagani, an Italian expert in scuba diving and the seabeds of the Maldives, our PADI Gold Palm 5-star Diving Centre is a gateway to some of the finest dive sites on the planet. From its strategic position away from the crowded atolls, it offers a wealth of opportunities to dive among pristine reefs and to enjoy sailing, fishing experiences, day and night excursions.
Snorkelling Adventures: two excursions a day from 9.30 to 12.30 am on board a dhoni, the traditional local boat, to visit two reefs on a quest for turtles, moray eels, butterfly fish and Napoleonfish.
Snorkelling for Beginners: for anyone who has never donned a mask, flippers and mouthpiece. An easy yet worthwhile experience in shallow water, suitable for all.
Snorkelling at Sunset: an experience by torchlight as night falls to discover the wonderful colours of the corals and the world of the Maldivian fish.
Discovering the Maldives: a tour of the nearby island to get to know the locals and their way of life. The little tourist shops sell souvenirs for guests to take home.
The Golden Sand Bank: an excursion for a mix of snorkelling and relaxing on the soft sands that rise from the crystalline waters not far from Maagau.
The Dolphin Tour: a fantastic 2-hour boat tour to meet the dolphins, in the expert company of a marine biologist.
Cruising under the Stars: a romantic boat trip for two under the stars, sipping Ferrari sparkling wine and nibbling on traditional Italian snacks. Guests will receive iPads with an app to help recognise the various constellations.
Ocean Sunset Cruise: set out at 6.30 pm on board a traditional Maldivian craft to enjoy an unforgettable aperitivo as the sun dips into the ocean.
