Just returned from 2 weeks on the island and wanted to say a big thank you to the Dive and Sale Ellaidhoo team for making my Scuba Diving experience great. Due to sinus troubles I could only manage 3 dives all on the house reef but each was memorable in it own way as there is much to see on... More

This was our first visit to Ellaidhoo, partly chosen because of its location for diving in the North Ari Atol. It turned out to be absolutely the right choice. The Ellaidhoo house reef diving could have been enough on its own, but it was impossible to resist signing up for as many of the boat trips as possible. The sites... More

Diving on Ellaidhoo is great. The house reef is really nice and is accessible any time of the day. As long as you have a buddy, you don`t need a guide but if you don`t have one (like me) then you can either pair up with another diver (I joined some German divers twice and had a great time) or...

If you are looking for a destination where you can dive, snorkel or just relax, I would suggest going to Elaidhoo right now! ;-) Everything has been perfect. Thus, I must recommend this island to you all! Compared to other Maldives islands this is a "pearl" with a fabulous and intact riff and several spots close to. I was there... More

I had with this dive center 21 dives. Nice dive sites, a lot of fishes and animals. In general, the organization of diving, diving equipment, boats and guides liked me. Attentive and friendly guides contributed fun dives. Special thanks to Adria, Ali, Mohamed, Mat, Lea. Was also negative. Did not like the guide - Ismail Mahir. He did not helped,... More

We dived with Dive and Sail on Ellaidhoo for 2 weeks in March/April and we had an excellent time. From our first visit to the dive centre we were made to feel very welcome by the manager Adam who showed us around and took us on an orientation dive. The set up and organisation and facilities were the best we... More
