In detail:

This cruise touches two of the most remote and uninhabited atolls of the Maldives: Vaavu and Meemu. The eastern side of Vaavu is one of the most popular choices for cruising boats in all seasons. There are many reasons: short stretches of open ocean - easy to cross during any monsoon - separate the atoll from Male; navigation is effortless throughout the year; the diving and snorkeling sites are among the most worthwhile in the archipelago; there are only two resorts and therefore little tourist traffic; and lastly the eastern tip of the atoll is one of the points with an abundance of fish on a par with anywhere in the archipelago during the dry monsoon. There are little less than 10 miles of the Vattaru Kandu which separate the atolls of Vaavu and Meemu.

Diving & fishing:

Mantas during the wet monsoon and pelagic fish all the year long: this is the promise of the waters and passes around Alimatha and the eastern side of Vaavu atoll. Myaru Kandu, the Myaru Kandu marine reserves and the Foththeyo pass are the three current dives not to be missed by more expert divers. The outer reef at Foththeyo Falhu is considered one of the spots with an abundance of fish on a par with anywhere in the archipelago from December to April, but there are also plenty of fish at Dhiggiri Point, in the dry monsoon, and in the stretch between Rakeedhoo and Fussaru Falhu during the rest of the year. Also the narrow passes and the long, uninterrupted coral reefs of Meemu Atoll provide an ideal habitat for large pelagic fishes. Diving and fishing thus provide plenty of satisfaction, above all during the dry monsoon. Mulak Kandu and Gaahuraa Kandu certainly feature among the most spectacular current dives in the Maldives. The first offers an extraordinary variety of pelagic fishes around its entrance, with a series of caves and blocks of coral covered with soft corals and sea fans to colour its western corner. The pass's sandy seabed provides a kind of light which is particularly appreciated by underwater photographers. The step of the Gaahuraa Kandu is crossed from side to side by a series of caves covered with marvellous, saffron-coloured soft corals and sea fans. This is one of the passes with the highest concentration of grey sharks in the archipelago when the current flows inside the channel.
