Kandu Thila

Kandu Thila Dive Site: A Thrilling Destination for Advanced Divers in the Maldives

Located north of Hilton Maldives Amingiri in Rasfari Channel, Kandu Thila is a renowned dive site that offers an exhilarating experience for advanced divers. Given its position in a channel, strong currents are prevalent, making it necessary for divers to possess an advanced level of skill.

The absence of a main reef at this site requires divers to descend quickly to the top reef, situated at a depth of 6 meters. Failure to reach the reef means returning to the boat and attempting another jump. Kandu Thila is a popular destination that draws divers from far and wide. The reef comes to life where the powerful current interacts with it, offering divers a chance to witness an abundance of marine life. Although it can be challenging, the rewards of diving in Kandu Thila are immeasurable.

With little current, beginners can also explore the captivating thila. The reef is adorned with captivating hard corals, creating a stunning backdrop for the myriad of schooling fish, moray eels, anemones, and their enchanting inhabitants. Additionally, giant trevallies and groupers accentuate the vibrant underwater scenery. Dogtooth tuna and eagle rays are frequently spotted hunting amidst the swift current.

Kandu Thila showcases a maximum depth of 31 meters and offers a visibility of up to 19 meters. This dive site is located in Kaafu, Maldives, making it easily accessible for divers seeking an unforgettable experience.

Dive into the depths of Kandu Thila and unlock the wonders of the Maldivian underwater world.
