Dive Centre by Ocean Paradise


Maldives is, put simply, an incredible place to dive. The clear, calm and warm waters are perfect for those beginning their diving adventures, and our dive sites dominated by strong currents and deep reef walls will amaze even the most advanced divers! From searching for tiny macro life in the soft corals, to watching enormous Manta rays glide over your head; Gili Lankanfushi can offer it all!

Ocean Paradise is a 5 star PADI dive company. In 2012 the Dive Centre was awarded the PADI Green Star Award for demonstrating a commitment to environmental conservation. We later became certified by Green Fins, an organisation working to help dive centres around Asia become more environmentally friendly. In 2015, Green Fins placed us in the top 10 most eco-friendly dive schools in Asia following our surprise audit! We have maintained our good practices, having been certified again in late 2016. 
Our instructors and guides promote environmental codes of conduct, and work hard to ensure environmental best practices are followed by at all times.

Our multilingual instructors make sure that divers are taken to dive sites which are appropriate for their skill level. This ensures maximum safety and prevents damage to the coral. It is compulsory to join the briefing before any dive, which will explain your dive site, maximum depth, current direction, expected marine life, as well as our eco-friendly diving rules. Instructors make sure that marine life is not harassed and is treated with respect.

No matter what your skill level, our instructors will be happy to help. Even those who have never dived before can come and try a Discover Scuba Diving (DSD) session, which takes just 3 hours to complete!

There are over 30 dive-sites to dive, including the best dive sites in North Male Atoll such as Banana, HP Reef (a.k.a. Rainbow Reef), Okobe Thila, Nassimo Thila, Maagiri, Manta Point and others.
