The Vacation Home Corner is a dive site off the west coast of the island of Thoddoo, where divers can experience nice drift diving. At this dive site, divers are even allowed to get lost for a time and choose whatever direction they want, exploring a beautiful coral garden in the shallows or a spectacular drop-off. Divers will be pleasantly surprised by the variety of small and large reef inhabitants and will have a chance to encounter some big pelagic visitors.

When to go

Divers can enjoy diving at this site all year round, because the water temperature is always warm here, averaging 26-29C/79-84F throughout the year. However, the best diving conditions are during the period from December to May, when there is less rain and the seas are calmer.

What to see

At this dive site, divers will see beautiful corals, nudibranchs, angelfish, parrotfish, triggerfish, bannerfish, surgeonfish, and giant moray eels, while at a deeper depth they can see stingrays, eagle rays, big grouper, passing barracudas, and cruising reef sharks.

Dive center`s Special Offers

  • Thoddoo Pro Dive Hydrotech (Maldives)

    Weekly Package

    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).
