To go reach our scuba diving spots around our island, we will board and take our Dhoni, the best diving boat available in Rasdhoo, whose original name is Thahiyya-1.
The boat was built in 2019 and is made of fiberglass, which gives it great lightness and freedom of movement.
It can accommodate up to 35 passengers and offers maximum comfort, with the particularity that on top of the bottom deck where we will prepare for diving, there is an upper deck where we can sunbathe and relax.
For greater passenger comfort, the boat has a specific area where each one can safely store their valuables and personal items, as well as access to a toilet and a fresh water shower.
As you can see, we have everything well prepared so that your diving experience in the Maldives will be one to remember forever.
Rasdhoo, the perfect place to enjoy diving in the Maldives
Family Divers has chosen Rasdhoo as the perfect island for you fully enjoy a diving experience filled with manta rays, sharks, turtles and many more spectacular species surrounded by a stunning colourful coral reef.
Additionally, it is conveniently located in close proximity to Malé, just 60 km away from the capital of the Maldives, granting easy access to all essential services such as international airports, hospitals, shops, restaurants, and much more.
This allows more affordable vacation packages, as well as a greater variety and possibilities to enjoy the best tropical vacations of your life.
Furthermore, Rasdhoo is a local island, meaning that it is not an expensive luxury resort, which gives you the opportunity to enjoy the island life for a cheaper price, with a closer local outlook.
Although it is a small island, it is well populated and oriented towards tourism, so it includes everything from its own soccer field to a volleyball court, water sport activities and other entertainment facilities such as cafes, restaurants, and of course, places to stay.
Family Divers offers complete and personalized packages
At Family Divers, we understand that every person and every group might be needing something different from the usual package deal, which is why we offer personalized packages to suit your needs.
You will find both pre-customised packages and the possibility of customizing your own package indicating the number of nights, the number of dives you wish to take, whether you want to take a diving course, transfers between the airport and the island… Overall, you have the freedom to adjust the package to your wishes!
These packages are suitable for singles, couples, groups, and families, offering maximum flexibility and security. Note we keep the diving groups quite small to ensure a more comfortable and enjoyable experience.
We offer WiFi connection in the accommodations, but remember that in Rasdhoo the connection might be a bit slow, so you may be interested in buying a local SIM card at the airport with 4G connection.
To access the Maldives, you will receive a 30-day visa free of charge, and for this, you must present a passport with an expiration date either equal to or greater than six months from the date of travel, as well as the return ticket.
It is important to keep in mind that to get from Malé airport to Rasdhoo and vice versa, we will only have two speedboats each day, which take approximately an hour on the journey.
This is very important to consider in order to adjust the arrival and departure times well to avoid any stressful situations of delay when arriving or departing from the airport.
The best locations for diving in the Maldives
Rasdhoo is undoubtedly one of the most interesting places to dive in the Maldives as it offers a wide variety of fauna and flora. The dives are organised either in channels, on pinnacles, walls, and wrecks.
Altogether, we boast 14 dive sites scattered across the atoll, offering significantly more vigorous experiences. This approach ensures that you won’t have to dive in the same locations repeatedly, and get a chance to see sharks, turtles, rays, bright colourful fish and more mind blowing species on different landscapes.
The diverse range of dive sites we offer enables a deeper exploration of the marine life in the Maldives. We prioritize safety, providing peace of mind, knowing that the Family Divers team will take care of you and ensure a seamless experience.
Within each of these sites, a rich array of marine life awaits— from turtles and rays to clownfish, sharks, shrimps, coral, anemones, and everything in between, offering an opportunity to revel in the most extraordinary underwater beauty one could ever envision.
Another noteworthy benefit is the consistently stable weather throughout the region, offering favorable conditions year-round. An added advantage is the water temperature, maintaining a comfortable 29 °C, allowing for pleasant dives with just a swimsuit.
Regarding the language spoken in the Maldives, the official language is Divehi, also known as Maldivian, but it is not a widely spoken language, as only around 300,000 people speak it. Locals learn other languages, with English and Italian being the most prominent (due to many Italians investing in the Maldives).
As for the time zone, the Maldives is in the GMT+5 time zone, meaning that if we travel during winter, we should add four hours to the Europe time, while if we do it in summer, we add three hours.
It is worth noting that the official currency in the Maldives is the Maldivian rufiyaa, but tourists can pay without any problem in dollars or with credit cards, and euros or dollars can also be exchanged at the airport or local shops. To give you an idea of the currency conversion, 15 rufiyaa is approximately one euro.
The Maldives uses a 230V, 50Hz electrical connection, which means that any appliance we bring from Europe will work, but the connection plugs used are those used in the UK, as the Maldives was a former British colony. (Which also explains why they drive on the left)
Essentially, for a distinctive and exclusive vacation featuring a unique diving experience, we encourage you to reach out to us. Explore firsthand why the Maldives is renowned for diving, making it a dream destination for singles, couples, friends, and families. People from all walks of life visit Rasdhoo year-round to connect with the marine world and indulge in the finest tourism experiences.
