Who We Are

Our Purpose, State of Mind & Way of Life

Dharavandhoo Divers is the first diving center of Dharavandhoo island, born in 2014 from the great passion for the sea and the many years of experience in the Baa Atoll of Jessica and Virgilio, a couple of Italian PADI and FIAS instructors and underwater photography enthusiasts. After years of managerial activity in various diving centers around the world and especially in the Maldives, they have chosen to settle on this enchanting island.

Diving into the Unknown

Dharavandhoo Divers, nestled in the heart of the picturesque Baa Atoll in the Maldives.

A Symphony of Shadows and Light

In the heart of the Baa Atoll in the Maldives lies a marine marvel.


The meeting with Jessica and Virgilio in the waters of the Baa atoll was a perfect combination of professionalism and friendliness, unusual willingness to satisfy my photographic needs and human warmth. The attention aimed at the multiple variables that influence the success of the the dives and personal care of professional relationships with collaborators make Dharavandhoo Diving a place of excellence both for professional photographers, beginners and for those who don't take photographs at all and who enjoy observing the marine world.
