Dive Site Description of Dhigalihaa Thila (Horubadhoo Thila)

Dhigalihaa Thila is located in the Baa Atoll with nearby islands including Kunfunadhoo, Eydhafushi and Maadoo. The height of the thila is about 7 meters from the water surface and its length is around 80 meters. At a range on depth from 30 – 40 meters the ocean floor becomes quite level.

Drift dives from the open water is the diving technique that can be used when there is a strong current at Dhigalihaa Thila. There are many projections of the reef which can act as shelter from these currents thereby aiding divers.

Dhigalihaa Thila has an abundance of fish life and a large variety too. It attracts fish such as schools of jacks, and barracuda and when currents are strong, grey reef sharks as well. This reef is a place that is not visited by divers like other reefs and so much of it is truly unspoilt.
