ABOUT FOTTEYO

Fotteyo plan
With the kind permission of iDive Maldives

Fotteyo is rich and beautiful dive site in the last channel to the northeast of Vaavu Atoll in Maldives, where dozens of dolphins are used to going through in the morning and in the evening. Covered with yellow soft corals, sharks and eagle rays can be encountered there too.
Foyetto is more impressive during incoming currents, but you can also dive there when current changes. You might be able to spot hammerhead sharks and leaf fish.

Divers can enter the water anywhere on the site depending on the current, for a right shoulder or left shoulder dive along the reef.
It is recommended to explore all different parts of the site, in any order. The north-western reef is a curved slope covered with soft yellow corals. On the northeast part, stingrays can be found in the many caves of the vertical wall. Just behind the mouth of the channel, there is a small thila where sharks can be spotted during incoming currents. At the end of the afternoon, a large group of dolphins usually cross the channel toward the ocean. Be patient and careful not to make sudden movements if you want to observe them.

This site should be avoided by beginners, as the reef is very fragile there.
