Fulidhoo, Maldives

Learn to dive + Deep Dive (7 days / 6 nights. Incl. 6 dives)

Learning to dive in the Maldives is guaranteed to give you an experience you will never forget. The water is lovely and warm and there is colourful fish and marine life everywhere! Doing your initial course from Fulisdhoo will, besides the great marine environement, provide you with a professional education, and a good learning experience. Starting slowly, with the skills in shallow water, you will build up step-by-step, to go diving inside the atoll of Vaavu.  
But keep in mind, for most people, the diving in Vaavu Atoll is all about getting out to the channels where the currents are thriving along with the big fish! We’re talking blue water and beautiful sharks and rays! You will not be diving here during your regular open water course.
But... with THIS package, you have chosen to upgrade to the "Learn to Dive + Deep Dive," where an extra day is added to your course. On this extra day, you go and do the PADI Adventure Deep dive, from the PADI Advanced course, which should give you the knowledge and skills to safely conduct a dive at one of the big channel dive sites. Giving you that mindblowing dive that will stick in your memory forever!

When you’re not diving, staying on an inhabited island is a fantastic experience. There are roughly 200 inhabitants living in Fulidhoo, and they are warm, funny and laid-back. During your stay, you’ll mingle with the locals and witness a way of life that has been perfected over the years - slow living, which revolves around family, fishing and food!

Location
Fulidhoo sits on the northern edge of Vaavu Atoll and lies just a few hours away from the equator. At 700m long and 200m wide, it’s not much more than a sliver of sand in the vast ocean. Yet thanks to the availability of fresh water, local vegetation and the bountiful sea, its remote community has thrived for centuries. Arriving on the island, you will quickly feel how your pace slows down as you get lullabyed into island life. There are a few cafés on this small island, and a beautiful bikini beach in a quiet lagoon, but besides that... there is not much else than lots of green vegetation and white sand. Oh, and the cool fruitbats in the trees, the stingrays feeding around the little jetty in the evening, the friendly people living on the island, their drumming nights and of course the ridiculously blue and warm water surrounding the island.

Your Guesthouse
Your guesthouse was newly built in 2017 and is located just next to the local school and of course, the beach. (It's all one big beach). The guesthouse has a kitchen that serves a simple breakfast in the morning (included).  

Your room
The lovely rooms all come with double or twin beds. A third bed can be added for families or for groups of 3. The rooms all have A/C, a fan and hot water in the private bathrooms. The rooms are spacious, light and cozy, with a small private balcony.
