TGI Maldives – Dhiggiri Diving Center

The TGI Maldives – Dhiggiri Diving Center international and multilingual instructor team will welcome you to Dhiggiri Island Resort. We offer a full range of SSI diving courses, from beginner right up to professional level. Our opening hours are from 09:00 to 13:00 and from 15:00 to 18:30. We are located near the water in the Supply Jetty area.

Check-in

Check-in for divers and all information on diving and diving courses can be had during all the opening times. The TGI team will check you in and give you information on dive sites, diving safety rules and prices. For check-in, please bring your diving certification, logbook and your medical certificate if you have one.

Orientation dive

After check-in, an orientation dive will be scheduled. This orientation dive will be a normal boat fun dive but we will choose a quiet site with a depth of about 15-18 meters. We will refresh divers’ basic skills like regulator recovery and clearing and mask clearing and we will carry out a buoyancy check, after which we will enjoy the amazing underwater world.

Left your diving certification at home?

If it is a PADI or an SSI certification then we can check on-line with PADI & SSI. With any other organization we will need a photocopy of the certification card or a fax, email or letter from the training organizations head office stating your diving qualification.

Our Boats

Our boats (Dhonis) leave twice a day and are equipped with sundeck and for your safety, a mobile phone, life jackets, first aid and oxygen.

Night dives

Twice a week we organize night dives at Dhiggiri Housereef where we observe nurse sharks and stingrays. Night dives from the boat are also available; please enquire with the dive centre.
