The Two Towers dive site, located off the northern side of the island of Thoddoo, Maldives, features a beautiful coral wall that goes down to a sandy sea bottom at a depth of around 30m/98ft. Due to the exposed location of this site, divers always experience some current here, but usually it is quite enjoyable drift diving, as the current mostly runs along the reef wall. While exploring the wall, divers will see a variety of small and big reef fish, possibly large pelagic species, and if they want to photograph some tiny marine creatures hiding on the wall, they are recommended to use a reef hook.

When to go

Divers can dive at this site throughout the year, but the best time is from December to May, when the water conditions are calmer. The water temperature averages 26-29C/79-84F throughout the year.

What to see

While diving at this site, divers will see colorful soft and hard corals, tiny nudibranchs, giant moray eels, stingrays, Napoleon wrasses, eagle rays, and sometimes whitetip reef sharks.

    There is a real offer for real divers – for those who wish to get a sight of underwater world of Maldives. Maldives is the world diving destination #1. Maldives has everything to prove it: clear warm water all year around, perfect visibility (20-40 m), and fantastic marine life. Corals, sponges, nudibranchs, fish, stingrays, dolphins, mantas, sharks can be found there. Diving in Maldives has some cool features. Most famous one is currents. Sometimes mild, sometimes strong, but always enjoyable. Jump in, adjust your buoyancy, and... just relax. Move with the waters along the reef walls (faru in Dhivehi), enjoy spectacular views of sea inhabitants, breath in, breath out. Napoleon wrasse, parrot fish, trigger fish, angel fish, snappers, groupers, sweetlips will be your companions in the journey. Mantas and reef sharks patrolling their areas or arriving to cleaning stations are often seen too. In Thoddoo, there are some nice walls up to 30-40 meters deep. Diving in channels (kandu in Dhivehi) between atolls and islands in Maldives sometimes can be challenging due to strong currents and visibility but always awesome because of greater chance to encounter sharks and mantas and better coral life. Madivaru channel near Rasdhoo island is the place to see hammerhead sharks. North channel (north to Veligandu resort) is where you can see mantas almost every day. There are some underwater rocks growing almost up to the surface called 'thilas'. These formations are like stop signs for the currents, providing food for corals and sponges - favorite food of bigger fish, turtles and sharks. Best thilas are located near Ukulhas island (Maaya Thila, Maa thila).
