ABOUT FILITHEYO THILA

Filitheyo Thila plan
With the kind permission of iDive Maldives

This dive site is located 1km South of Filitheyo Island. The pinnacle, which is shaped as a capital G, can offer many different routes according to the direction and strength of the current. The marine life is mostly concentrated around and above the thila. Despite a complex architecture, you can encounter many species like sharks, eagle rays, tunas, stingrays and groupers.

You can enter the water upstream in the current, and it is better not to stay a long time at the surface when the current is strong. Divers first stop on the side of the thila which is exposed to the current, and then drift northbound. Make some stops from time to time in order to avoid drifting away too quickly. You can then ascend in open water or along the reef. A dive dhoni will then pick you up.

This dive site is quite complicated and you might easily get lost. It is recommended to stay between 10 and 25 meter depths to make sure you stay close to the pinnacle.
You can dive at this site throughout the year. Filitheyo Thila is recommended for divers with experience in strong currents, the site has an intermediate level of difficulty.
