EXPERIENCE THE BEST
THE INDIAN OCEAN HAS TO OFFER
Diving is a major attraction here at Mirihi. We are looking at over 40 different dive sites all conveniently located within an hour’s boat ride, from Manta Rays to Whale Sharks to beautiful coral gardens – everything a diver’s heart desires.
You want to learn how to dive here at Mirihi? Our Ocean-Pro Dive Team offers a variety of courses as well. No matter if you have never dived before and simply want to try it or want to get certified. Our courses, from Discover Scuba Diving all the way to Rescue Diver, are tailored to your schedule.
This project was born in Summer 2018, out of a wish to help our house reef to regrow.
We created small areas where we would try to grow small coral fragments into big corals. Suspended on ropes we eliminate threats such as sedimentation and stress due to surge. Under these conditions the coral fragments grow much faster than usual. Once they are big enough, they are integrated into the reef.
Over the years this project became bigger and we are now looking at multiple coral nurseries all stacked with coral fragments.
The Ocean-Pro Mirihi Dive Team offers a variety of diving courses. As a PADI 5* Dive Center, we always strive to meet the highest safety and training standards so you can safely enjoy your diving courses.
We do try-dives for those who have never dived before or run beginner courses if you wish to finally get certified as a diver. If you are already certified and want to learn more about diving, our Advanced Course or the Specialities are for you. Or maybe you are ready to take the next step and become a Rescue Diver.
In any case, all our courses are individually fit to your needs and time frame.inquire now

Mirihi is conveniently located in the South Ari Atoll and offers access to more than 40 dive sites with multiple Manta Ray Spots, the Whale Shark area, countless channel dives and Thilas among them. With our location being almost centered within the Atoll, we can easily adjust our diving plan to the weather and the currents.
We offer daily diving trips with our boats, where we do not stick to a rigid schedule. We prefer to check which dive sites you would like to explore and which are the most suitable for the respective conditions. Our house reef is accessible to you at all times, even at night.
Diving here at Mirihi is possible all year round. The conditions are mostly affected by the Monsoon winds and therefor the major currents. These currents range from barely noticeable to strong. But don’t worry even with strong currents we can always find places to have easy and relaxed dives.
Our house reef is accessible for dives as well. It is home to multiple turtles, eagle rays, a massive school of batfish and many more. There is even a wreck for you to explore. The perfect site for an easy dive to get back into the game – or to explore at night. All our entry level training is done here as well.
Equipment & Boats
All diving equipment for rent is available with us. We take great care in maintaining and servicing all our dive gear to make sure you have a safe experience with us.
Our diving fleet is composed of two boats. A modern fibre glass boat and a traditional wooden Dhoni. The crew is exceptionally well-trained in aiding divers and the captains know the Atoll inside out.
