Island Divers was exceptional. The crew was helpful and knowledgeable and they ensured everyone had a safe and fun experience. Went on 3 scuba dives to beautiful reefs and snorkeled the whale shark safari. Would recommend them to all my friends and family!

Great diving with a friendly and knowledgable local crew who know the best spots. We saw some amazing coral, fish life and rays - definitely worth taking a camera. Reasonable price, good equipment and nice boat.

I think for seeing whalesharks you should go to south ari atoll. We saw a lot of Whalesharks at Dhigurah. It's a perfect spot for diving. We were there last July and stayed at TME Dhigurah.
