Easy entry from the dive shop with exits all around the island making for a nice dive along the reef surrounding Erinyadu island. From other places around the island easy entries can be made with the dive shop bringing your gear to the entry place of your choice. The shop took us in Apr 2007 for three dives to complete the island. Euro divers dive shop also has Nitrox available. Erinyadu Island lies in the North Male Atoll a easy 40 Min speed boat ride north of the Male International Airport. Erinyadu resort is the only resort on the island and Euro Divers is the dive shop.
Prisca Corner

The reef crest at the corner slopes gently down to at a plateau at 10 metres with some bommies to shelter behind and catch your breath before heading out into the stream. Or you can use it at the end of your dive to look at Shrimp-goby holes in the sand or Blennies sticking their heads out of vacant worm tubes. The reef slope on the barrier side is a steep drop to the sandy shelf at around 30 or 40 metres. White-tip reef sharks will either be darting back and forth in strong currents or basking on the bottom when the flow is drab. When there is a reasonable current flowing, Eagle rays and Grey reef-sharks like to casually flex a bit of muscle. Around the corner in the channel, the reef slope is a wall grooved with overhangs fringed with the lacework of sea fans and adorned with purple, yellow, orange and pink spiky shrublets of soft coral. "Redfish" - Squirrelfish, Bigeyes and Soldierfish - will goggle as you drift by. Other denizens of the overhangs are Sweetlips and Morays. If you can manage, use a torch to look for Boxer cleaner-shrimp in the crevices. Prisca Corner is formed where the southern Asdhoo channel reef meets the atoll barrier. It's a fun ride in a strong current.
