Gan is not a typical Maldives beach resort set on an isolated private island. Instead, guests have the opportunity to explore the area and freely visit the friendly local communities on the neighbouring islands. They only ask that you show the proper respect for local customs. While there is lots to see on land, it is the underwater attractions that bring divers back to Addu Atoll again and again.
Divers looking for large, colourful coral colonies of all species and forms will not be disappointed. Addu Atoll was lucky to have been spared the effects of the coral bleaching of 1998 that other reefs in the Maldives are still recovering from. Divers keen to see some of our larger underwater wildlife will find much to quicken their pulse. Addu Atoll is one of the few places in the Maldives where giant manta rays, with wingspans of 5 metres plus, can be found throughout the year. The channels and outer reefs of this atoll are also home to a number of shark species, hawksbill and green turtles, and abundant schools of large fish. For the wreck diver we have the "British Loyalty", largest shipwreck in all the Maldives. This 143m oil tanker was torpedoed twice by enemy submarines during World War II, but survived to be scuttled by the British themselves in January 1946. It now lies on sandy ground below the sheltered waters on the inside of the atoll. At depths of 16-33m it offers us perfect wreck diving conditions. There is excellent coral growth with healthy colonies of both hard and soft corals.
At Diverland we make sure that divers of all levels get their money's worth. We happily cater to the needs of experienced divers, as well as complete beginners and those who want to advance their dive training.
