Scuba Diving

We are simply fanatic about scuba diving! Stunning marine life, amazing colours and fantastic dive sites await.

Discover the Gentle Giants of South Ari

Nova is located in South Ari Atoll and is a scuba diver’s ultimate playground – the region is widely known for its spectacular diving sites and congregations of large pelagics like the ever-graceful manta rays and whale sharks – the quintessential bucket list experience! There are a few destinations in the world where in-season whale shark sightings are guaranteed; lucky enough, our soul place happens to be one of them.

South Ari Atoll favors thilas (pinnacles) and channels rather than protected walls or coral reefs – a plethora of colorful fish, graceful eagle rays, various types of sharks, and more await! The thilas are covered in black coral bushes and have caves and overhangs that house some incredible residents – from gray reef sharks to thousands of blueline snappers. The region also features some impressive wrecks you can explore!
