ABOUT MAFZOO

Mafzoo plan
With the kind permission of iDive Maldives

Located at the southern end of Gaafu Dhaalu Atoll, this dive site consists of a giri of approximately 60m in diameter. Safari boats departing or arriving from Fuvahmulah often make a dive stop here. The site hosts beautiful sea fans, leaf fish, and very healthy corals on the sides of the pinnacle.

The water entry is usually done on the side of the pinnacle exposed to the current.
Then, divers can swim anywhere around the pinnacle and at any depth, to observe different species, beautiful sea fans or corals. Glassfish and leaf fish are often easily spotted around large blocks. The top reef is not very interesting due to the many broken corals up there.
The ascent and safety stop are performed around the pinnacle.
The sea fans present on the pinnacle wall are very fragile. Divers will need to pay extra attention not to damage them by swimming too close to them. This site is accessible throughout the year and is suitable for beginners.
