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

The dive sites were very nice. At the time we were there only 3 were approached, because on the other side of the island the swell was too high. Once a day was always Tiger Zoo. The other two dive sites were once the cleaning station for the thresher sharks, which were also almost every time there, and the plateau, where we are mostly in the blue water to look for the hammerheads. These two dive sites were mostly very deep The reefs were very nice and healthy.
The guides try to show you everything and fulfill every wish.

Great diving! Like 30 years ago...
Always a chance to see something breathtaking.
Partly challenging diving conditions with strong currents. Not for beginners.

Dive sites : it seems to us that there is still a lot to be discovered / can be discovered in Fuvahmulah because there was not much variety.
Dive guides : all friendly and helpful, but some have no experience / eye for macro.
Equipment : had 2 dives with oil taste in the bottle.

I was completely happy with the Dive School. The staff are super trained, mega friendly and help where they can. My long-awaited wish to dive with tiger sharks has definitely come true. I experienced a lot more than I could have dreamed of.

Overall great diving experience, dive center very professional and concerned about safety.
Could be better:
Dive sites are blue water heavy, and with 45 min short, some diving out on the reef would have pleased me.
For sharkschool a more varied tiger shark setting would be even nicer.

To Fuvahmulah we are primarily for diving with tiger sharks. And that is spectacular and well organized. You sit in the group on the sandy bottom, then in some distance the fish waste is left from the boat and already the tiger sharks are there. The dive guides are always very careful and sometimes move the fish scraps if they get too close to the dive group. Nevertheless, the tigers come very close so that they can be perfectly photographed. They are never touched or hand fed, which we find extremely good. Here the sharks are the stars and not some guide who dares to feed or touch the shark. We hope this will be kept up!
On the rest of the dives there was not much going on. A single turtle, moray eels, colourful reef fish and intact corals. Unfortunately we didn't see any thresher sharks, although we went to the spots of these elegant hunters a few times. But as we said, the tiger sharks are the main attraction, everything else is an encore. Besides, one must not forget, it is the sea and not a zoo. We are happy about what we experienced!

Diving with the tiger sharks was just awesome, a once in a lifetime experience! We always felt safe because the sharks only seemed curious and not somehow aggressive and several guides had our backs!

My recommendation: Stay a few days in the diving school (not only safari) Only then you get the optimal tiger shark experience.
Super nice people in the dive center and in the recommended guesthouse Zero Degree. They do everything for you.

Unfortunately, Tiger Zoo is no longer an insider tip due to the size of safari boats. Since I have dived with the diving school as well as with the Sheena Tiger Zoo I can compare the dives very well. The guides of the diving school are much more experienced and you can see that. You felt much safer because the dive groups were much better organized. Every diver was assigned a fixed location at the dive site, every diver got a stick which he could use to keep the sharks from getting too close, guides secured all sides and always patrolled back and forth in front of the divers to remove and reposition shark food which was too close to the divers...absolutely professional...

Not many different dive sites, but the 2 daily trips to the 'Plateau' and 'Tiger Zoo' are really top notch. Besides that there are some dive sites around the island with still very well preserved hard corals. Very friendly staff, guides attentive and considerate. You only have to bring your own equipment and pick it up washed and dried at the end of your stay. A plus: at the base you can borrow reusable drinking bottles for your stay.
