The south side of Medhu Faru has many impressive features making it one of the most scenic drift dives. With an ingoing current, divers can start on the outside reef where a long ledge at 30 meters sweeps round the corner into Guraidhoo Kandu. With wavering sea fans springing out from the ledge, soft coral in abundance and big fish – sharks, barracuda and napoleon – in the open ocean, this is a sensational start to an exhilarating dive.
Near the corner, the wall of the channel becomes more steep and the current accelerates through the pass. A large rock draped in soft coral lies near the corner forming a small canyon at 18 meters. Sharks, trevally, tuna and fusilier congregate here. At 10 to 15 meters there are caves and ledges well worth a visit. One big overhang cuts through the reef from three to 30 meters. A sandy bay 250 meters inside the channel complete the picture. Strong outgoing currents can be dangerous at Medhu Faru that's why this dive spot is only to dive under special current conditions.
