Diving

With over 50 dive sites and a fantastic house reef with 10 entry points, Ariston is the perfect diver’s paradise for beginners and experienced divers. Even the wreck ‘Kudhimaa” is only a 30-minute boat ride away and is one of the regularly visited dive sites. South of the island you find a protected Marine Area, Khudarah Thila, an exceptional place for divers and of course the national park at the outside reef. Weekly full day trips are offered to search for whale sharks in this area throughout the year.

The dive sites are between 10 minutes and 1 hour away from the island. These dive sites are reached by comfortable dive boats (dhonis). The unique diversity and variety of underwater life in the Maldives especially around Dhangethi has a lot of highlights to offer scuba divers

The dive rates depend on the number of dives done with or without dive gear.
