Fuvahmulah Dive School is first professional diving facility based in Fuvahmulah. Dive School was organised by two dive guides Ibrahim Shiyan and Tatiana Ivanova in January 2017. After long years of diving and cruising around the Maldives, Fuvahmulah was chosen as the most unique and mysterious place in the Maldives. As pioneers here, we have discovered plenty of secrets of this amazing hidden diving paradise and ready to share it all with our guests. In 2019 Fuvahmulah Dive School got  5*PADI Dive Centre status. We love diving, we never stop to explore. All dives we do are challenging and exiting. 
Fuvahmulah Dive School keeps high standards and provides excellent service for individuals and groups. Each dive includes comprehensive briefing and explanation of pelagic and shark behaviour, full equipment assistance, transfers to dive centre. Our team members are local islanders who well know local weather and ocean conditions. All dive guides have Shark Speciality and specially trained for Tiger Zoo. We have excellent team, who will make your mood up show you unforgettable diving. Coming once, you will be dreaming to repeat. 
Fuvahmulah Dive School has excellent location in harbour area in front of fish market and cozy local cafe, when guests can have snacks/coffee/tea in between the dives and get rest under the shadow of beautiful trees. It takes less than a minute to get our diving boats from dive centre.
