if there is a perfect place to dive, Maldives are surely in the top 5 best dive destinations.
We are based in Vashafaru island, a hidden paradise far away from the crazy world. Totally unspoiled by tourism it will give you a real boutique experience, above and under water.
At Aquaholic we’re passionate about the ocean and life under and above the waves. We enjoy blowing bubbles, we love to share our passion with fellow divers and we are happy to show this amazing world to everyone who decides to do their first underwater breaths.
As true ocean lovers we love to spend as much time on the water as possible. That’s why we do kiteboarding on the days when we can’t dive or when we just want to enjoy some more. Flying a kite is an experience everyone should try, and what better place than our fabulous lagoon.
