Maldives / Extra Divers Thelu Veliga

The new Extra Divers diving center is located directly on the jetty of Thelu Veliga in Southern Ari Atoll. Here you can enjoy the tranquillity and still experience a lot under water. This dive region is without doubt one of the best and most spectacular of the Maldives.
The species diversity ranges from bat and surgeon fish, from barracudas and sting rays up to year-round whale shark and manta sightings.

The dive center of Extra Divers Thelu Veliga will be closed on May 31 2018 because of operational reasons!

Diving/Dive spots

Daily morning and afternoon boat trips are offered with a traditional Dhoni, outfitted with all possible comforts. Depending on the guest's desires, individual trips, 2-tank trips, full day trips and night dives are scheduled, given that the travel time to the beautiful dive sites are between 10 minutes and an hour. The island Thelu Veliga is strategically well situated, offering the easily accessible Giris with its magnificent corals, the legendary and exciting channel dives, and let's not forget the wrecks.
The incredible fish variety becomes apparent not only by the tortoises, Napoleonfish and rays, but above all through the many different shark species.
There are over 30 dive sites to select from, including legendary "Broken Rock", "Lucky Hell", "Thinfushi Tila" and "Kudarah Tila".
