The trip was organized just after the tsunami hit. Whilst there was some
damage to the very large hard coral tables in some of the channels, overall
the reef condition was great. Having been in the Maldives five years
earlier, I was concerned about coral bleaching, but thanks to the southern
position of the atoll, there was little damage as far as I could tell.
Quality of hard coral was great. Tropical fish life very good, including
Turtles, Zebra Sharks, Eagle Rays and large school of Gray Reef Sharks.
Diving is in channels (called thilas) tipically with medium to strong
current flowing into the atoll. Boat is very elegant, service was great.
Diving was always from dohni (small boat attached), with no need to carry
diving equipment. Very good trip.
