The diving at The Sun Siyam Iru Fushi is for the beginning and experienced diver a revelation.
The corals are in excellent condition and all the main fish species can be seen at different dive sites.
The diving is fairly easy compared to other Atolls, because of the wide channels and shallower depths, the currents are less forceful.
The variety of the reefs is most impressive; the reef formation on each dive site is different and very diverse. Manta rays are very common and can be found at different dive sites; the humpback turtle which is not very common in the Maldives is present among the large green turtles and the Hawksbill turtle.
For beginners and experienced divers it is possible to see grey reef sharks at an easy dive site.
The dive sites are relatively close by The Sun Siyam Iru Fushi, with some of the dive sites within one hour travelling but most of the dive sites within 40 min. travelling with the diving Dhoni.
Most of the dive sites are ideal for videographers and photographers, hence the easy diving and the shallow depths of the reefs.
