The entire Guraidhoo Channel between Guraidhoo Faru and Maadhoo Falhu has been declared a Protected Marine Area. With ingoing current this dive site promises a unique diving opportunity for viewing a wide range of fish life. The outside reef has many reef fish including schooling banner fish as well as turtles and many species of grouper. Near the corner, big schools of fusilier, rainbow runner, tuna and trevally congregate, while on the corner at 25 meters, grey reef sharks and snapper prey on fish. Napoleon and eagle rays also pass by.
A long cave with fans, sponges and soft corals at 16 meters on the corner is a quiet refuge, not only for cave-dwelling fish, but for divers seeking a break from the currents. Inside the channel, a series of caves and overhangs occur at 10 meters while below are numerous outcrops of reef. At one point inside the channel is a huge overhang descending from the reef top at five meters to over 30 meters. Currents can be troublesome through this channel. A whirlpool effect dragging divers up and down can occur. This dive also is only recommended for experienced divers.
