Mundoo Kandu (also spelled Mundhoo Kandu) is located in Laamu Atoll, Maldives and is one of the most-visited channels. The opening is at a depth of 12m/40ft. The currents at this site can be very strong, so strong that divers’ masks can float away in the current. Diving under these circumstances demands full confidence, not only in basic diving knowledge but also in absolute awareness of ones surroundings, dive group/dive partner, depth, oxygen, time, and especially decompression status.

When to go

It is possible to die at Mundoo Kandu year-round. The best time to dive is May to November. The water temperature averages 27-30C/80-86F.

What to see

Divers can find lots of marine creatures, such as schools of jacks, surgeonfish, big-eye trevallies, tuna, dolphins, sharks, eagle rays, barracudas, turtles, wrasses, stingrays, and manta rays.

    Full Day Trip (3 Dives)

    3 guided dives. This product is for certified divers only. Laamu Atoll is an untouched paradise for snorkelers and divers. With relatively few channels, great visibility, beautiful hard coral formations and weak currents, this perfect for photographers. Inner reefs are home to both small macro and larger animals such as turtles. The channels to the north provide adrenalin-charged current diving for the more experienced. These channels are packed with fish, sharks and eagle rays while on the outer reef; we may encounter mantas and whale sharks.
