At Christmas time I decided to visit Fuvamulah Dive School. The relatively late booking on my part was handled professionally and relaxed by Wiro Dive, thanks again to Sabrina, despite short notice.Top Job!
After the flight, including domestic flight, I was picked up by Imram, who brought me to my accommodation, the Fuvamulah Inn.
At the check in, medical certificate and logbook were checked, the usual documents were filled out. The equipment was supplied quite promptly by the crew, bottles in different sizes are filled on the ship.
The ship itself has enough space for 20 guests, including space for photo equipment. Safety was kept high, oxygen was on board. Briefings were well delivered before each dive. Respect for the sea and its inhabitants was not neglected, with regard to diving with pelagic animals. The then following trips are relatively short, max 20 min.
During the trip we had several sightings of Melonhead and Pilot Whales as well as Spinner Dolphins. The dive sites themselves are good to dive but can include current, depth, blue water etc. Even we were at four different dive sites, where you can dive all dive sites very different.
Fox sharks, grey sharks, whitetips, blacktips and of course tiger sharks were the shark highlights and it was really worth it. But also turtles, a wahoo, various kinds of moray eels, napoleons, smaller tuna, a lot of schooling fish and different kinds of snails could be seen. All in all, it has bustled well under water, partly also really beautiful coral gardens.
The Tigerzoo as a dive site is special, therefore also a detailed briefing. Under water you are placed, this Plart you keep until you leave the dive site again in the direction of safety stop. In the kneeling position you hold a metal rod vertically in front of you. The ratio is partly 1:3, one felt safe at all times.
The island itself came up short, for this reason alone it is worth repeating.
The team itself is a good mix of everything a professional dive center needs. Starting with the pick up, the check in, the cooperation with the accommodation, help with small errands and of course the diving itself. A very nice vacation that screams for repetition.
A warm greeting to the whole team
