“Great diving”
Reviewed February 21, 2014

Good rental equipment, professional staff and comfortable dhoni for diving. Awesome dive sites are nearby. Prices are cheaper than in resorts but average for inhabited island dive centers. Be aware that they have only one boat in use. It means that you have to be flexible with your snorkeling and diving plans. We had great time with Island divers.

“Excellent experience! incredible diving!”
Reviewed February 8, 2014

Went to Maldives as part of our honey moon.
Stayed at Dhigurah for about 5 days in the local hotel, it's excellent by the way.
The island it's really incredible, quite big and with lots of local shops, one restaurant and one hotel.
The divers school it's absolutely great, totally professionals, Naushad and all the team are really nice people, you feel safe during all the tour. We wanted to do the PADI there, but we didn't had enough time, so we did the snorkel Whale Shark safari and Mantas, we could see both of them for quite some time and then some reef snorkel in every safari.
Their whaleshark view rate it's almost 100%..
All the equipment it's top of the line, so no problem there.
Naushad took us some underwater pictures that were excellent! (thanks again for that!!)

If you are planning to go to maldives, please consider going to this island before a fancy all inclusive hotel. It's a much better experience! you won't regret it!

Thanks for all the good memories and incredible diving! Hope we could go there again as a second honey moon sometime!!

“Great diving with professional and and very friendly guides!”
Reviewed February 7, 2014

My wife and I did 4 dives with Noshad and Sobah. Most dived were really great. We saw everything from small snails to the whale shark!!! We also did our first night dive with Island Divers and the professional and competent instructor made the dive a great experience I can't wait to repeat. Seeing all the glowing plankton was amazing.

If you don't mind a regular hotel accommodation (TME Retreats) and your main goal is to log some amazing dives then this is definitely the place to go! You can really save money both on the accommodation and on the dives (~USD20/dive).

“more than just a dive...”
Reviewed February 6, 2014

Had the opportunity of diving with Island Divers a few times during its early days in 2012 and early 2013. Dhigurah is within reach of the best dive spots in the Maldives and you have a high chance of spotting whale sharks, mantas and dolphins near the island. Professional and friendly staff always ready to help.
