About Noohiri Diving & Water Sport Center
Noohiri Diving & Water Sport Center is a modern PADI 5* dive center located on Feridhoo Island in the north of the Maldives, close by numerous friendly turtles.
Set in the north part of Ari Atoll, this is one of the most sought after diving destinations in the Maldives. Turtles, nurse & reef sharks, whale sharks, manta rays... all these beautiful creatures are found here each and every year. Not to mention the hundreds of smaller reef creatures and colorful corals that make up the underwater paradise that is the Maldives. With Noohiri, get easy, laid-back yet safe access to 17 of the best dive sites around - all within 75 minutes ride of the dive center (though most are less than 1 hour away).
Whether you're a new diver looking for calm, shallow coral reefs to blow your first bubbles, or an experienced drift diver hoping to fly through diverse thilas on strong currents, Noohiri has you covered. A full range of PADI recreational courses are available, including Project AWARE and Night specialties. All rental gear is well-maintained Mares equipment and the team boast two on-site compressors.
For non-divers or those looking to mix it up, the water sports half of the operation offers sailing trips, stand up paddle boards (SUP) and windsurfing. Grab the gear and go for it, or sign up for a class to hone those skills. A SUP allows you to easily and flexibly explore the island's reefs and beaches. Guided tours are available on request.
