Our dive masters at Constance Moofushi take us on a tour of the beautiful underwater world of Moofushi.
The Island of Moofushi is located in a very fortunate position for diving. It lies exaclty on 2 ocean passes to the cemtre west of Ari Atoll, the most colourful atoll in the Maldives.
In the dry season from November to April the northeast monsoon pushes the currents to the West, bringing with it manta rays and whale sharks, which can be encountered on almost every dive around 10 minutes boat trip from Moofushi.
In the monsoon season with the oceanic currents pushing from the southwest, the water is extraordinarily transparent. This provides fantastic diving conditions especially in the ocean passes where groups of up to 50 to 60 gray reef sharks can be spotted.
The coral is beautiful. In the Ari Atoll the diving is very colourful – white, blue, pink-red, and there’s a wide variety and quantity of fish. The diving centre is managed by Blue Tribe, whose guides are intimately familiar with the waters in the area and the whole team have made thousands of dives.
There are many dives full of colorful, soft coral of various species, white and blue, pink and red, deep blue… ideal for lovers of underwater photography.
Photography buffs will be rewarded with many different species of fish to photograph. Clown fish are in abundance, so cute and photogenic. Those without a camera or who wish to get the best from their own camera can learn with Bluetribe’s instructors, with their popular ‘Bluetribe Digital Underwater Photography’ programme.
