In our last blog we talked about the famous Kuda Rah Thila and 7th Heaven, in this blog we want to share some information about Five Rocks and Manta Point.

Five Rocks Dive Site Maldives

Five Rocks Thila is located just northeast of Digurah Thila. It might be one of the smallest Thilas in the area but it certainly is one of the most beautiful. It is broken into five pieces with deep corals rocks and small canons to dive through which gives an extraordinary experience for divers. The reef is covered with hard and soft corals, sea fans, sponges and a vast amount of marine life to explore. You may be lucky enough to encounter some bigger fish in this Thilas including barracudas, white tip reef sharks, sting ray and tunas. The depth of this dive is between 14-30 metres so be careful that there are no decompression issues.

Manta Point Dive Site Maldives

Manta Point is a popular site to see these graceful creatures from January to May. This dive site is where the mantas come to get cleaned so is an ideal place for even beginners to view these beautiful sea creatures. The mantas come to their ‘cleaning station’ where the smaller fish will clean them. But don’t be tempted to go near to touch them as they will swim away fast. But if the Mantas are not here the day you visit there are still plenty of fascinating sea life to enjoy including moray eels, turtles and even napoleons.  The depth of this dive is up to 30 metres.
