The Rainbow Caves are located at the North Baa Atoll in the Maldivian Archipelago, and have been preserved as a UNESCO territory since 2011 to keep the sacred diving heritage. Most North Atoll liveaboards go to this dive site. The underwater landscape has soft corals and mysterious caves.

When to go

The average water temperature is 27-30C/80-86F, which makes it possible to dive throughout almost the entire year. The surface conditions are considered to be calm, but can be choppy from time to time during the southwest monsoon in June.

What to see

Rainbow Caves offers a diving experience with submerged pinnacles and overhangs. Here divers can see manta rays, eagle rays, whale sharks, turtles, reef sharks, lemon sharks, dolphins, honeycomb moray eels, lionfish, beautiful oriental sweetlips, pufferfish, batfish, and soft corals.
