Maldives Thulhagiri - Barracuda Giri

One of the most famous dive sites in North Male Atoll!

Three small pinnacles make up the dive site Barracuda Giri. An incredible amount of fish can be seen here - 'fish soup'! Fusiliers, hunting tunas and jacks can be seen at the split point between the pinnacles. Large schools of blue-lined and black snappers, banner fish, groupers and larger marine life such as napoleans and rays can also be seen here.

The reef itself and its overhangs are covered in multicoloured soft coral, large gorgonians and bushes of black coral. The tops of the pinnacles are alive with clouds of anthias and other fish.

With medium to strong current, a quick descent and good current management is quite often necessary.
