We welcome you to explore the underwater world by learning how to dive! If you are already certified, hop aboard the ‘Dhoni’ (boat) and be amazed by our surrounding nature.
South Ari Atoll is well-known for its amazing variety of fish and rich ocean life. Groupers, sweetlips, surgeonfish, fusiliers, moray eels, turtles, eagle rays, manta rays and many many more can be spotted. Nemo and Dory await you!
Escape the daily grind and enjoy the serenity of a sandbank for a few hours. Take out some snorkelling gear to explore the surrounding reef and have some refreshments under an umbrella.
Gentle giants 12 months per year! Board a traditional Maldivian boat (Dhoni), and cruise along the reefs of Dhigurah and neighbouring islands in search of these gentle giants! Once spotted*, jump in and swim alongside the largest fish on the planet! The British led Maldivian Whale Shark Research Group, who are based on Dhigurah, have recorded over 300 whale sharks in our area. The average length is 5.92m, which makes them “teenagers”. The whale sharks are spotted all year round, but inclement weather conditions can make them harder to find.
For centuries, the Maldives was primarily a nation of fishermen. Experience the traditional fishing lifestyle by joining the inhabitants of Dhigurah on their fishing adventures. Throw out a fishing line from an anchored boat and find out what the ocean has in store for you!
Standup paddleboard or Canoe Be one with the sea and explore the shoreline on a canoe or a SUP. Jetski, waterski, wakeboard, banana, fun tube. Ready to get your adrenaline pumping? Jump aboard our 260 HP JetSki!
Pods of dolphins enter South Ari atoll early in the morning. Rise early to catch a glimpse* of Bottlenose and/or Spinner dolphins! On rare occasions, smaller pods for 4 to 10 dolphins merge to form a superpod that can range anywhere from 50 to over 100 dolphins.
On the beach! Surprise your loved one with a romantic dinner on the beach! Let yourself be amazed by the chef’s menu pick, or have a chat with him to select your favourite meal in this tropical paradise! Stroll barefoot on the beach when the sun is setting, lead your partner to the candle lights at dusk, enjoy a romantic dinner and relax in a bean bag by the campfire under the stars. Then, with a little luck, swim with bioluminescent plankton at night!
