Dive Site Description of Kudahaa / Rainbow

Kudahaa / Rainbow is situated on the southwest side of the North Male Atoll inside the reef with the nearest islands being Giravaru. Spead out over 100 meters in length, this dive site has two underwater thilas which are 60 meters apart. There are two circular coral tables, one is 7 meters beneath the surface and the other 12 meters. The seabed then drops off to a depth of 30 meters.

Inhabitants to the Kudahaa / Rainbow dive site are abundant and diverse. Expect to find thousands of Anthias, black and green Acropora, large Morays and blue triggerfish. Large Nurse Sharks and sea turtles are also common visitors. One of the main features of the dive site is the breathtaking cave located at about 25 - 30 meters at the culmination of the ridge on the north face. Inside, a large, bushy, black coral tree with oyster shells can be found. Currents around Kudahaa / Rainbow are not usually strong and it is therefore possible to swim around both thilas most of the time.
