Dive into the Deepest Pool in Maldives – The OLIGE Dive Pool

With a depth of 4.6 meters, Fuvahmulah City is now home to the deepest swimming pool in Maldives. The pool, located at Fuvahmulah OLIGE, is operated by a diving club led by Extreme Maldives.

As per Extreme Maldives, they decided to operate the pool in Fuvahmulah because it is an island surrounded by unique geography and is one of the closest atolls to the equator. The island is also a hotspot for divers, making it an ideal spot for such a pool.


The pool was developed by Extreme Maldives in association with Silver Lake Fuvahmulah. The pool’s length measures 10.97 meters, while width measures 4.87 meters. The pool’s deepest depth has 4.6 meters and shallow areas are 1.2 meters deep. This is the deepest and the only dive pool in Maldives.

One of the most famous islands in Maldives for its beauty and historical importance, Fuvahmulah is the second nearest atoll to the Equator and the first atoll in the Southern Hemisphere. Being a one-island atoll itself, Fuvahmulah has many distinctive features which make the island unique.

Nicknamed the Maldivian Galapagos, Fuvahmulah Atoll is crowned Asia’s hottest shark diving locations to dive with tiger sharks, hammerhead sharks, thresher sharks and more. Fuvahmulah’s relatively unknown dive scene, unique location, and isolation make it an ideal destination for exhilarating diving in the Maldives. The atoll’s famous tiger sharks can be seen every day, but its also home to hammerhead sharks, thresher sharks, silvertip sharks, oceanic manta rays, big schools of barracudas, yellowfin tuna, bonitos, sailfish, and even Mola mola and pilot whales.
