Hi

Can anyone recommend any really good dive sites that can be visited from Meeru? Any personal choices?

Thanks
Spence

Hi spence

For me it has to be HP reef, but its along way from meeru, nearly back to the airport, so they normally do this as a double dive with a boat lunch at one of the other islands. it could be sun island (not 100% on the name) This was my top dive last year. IMO.
There is a wish list at the dive center.You will need to check on all the dives some are more advanced than others. the dive center will help you with this, but all the dives can go from good to fantastic in seconds. i was lucky enough to see a thresher shark, at a distance for a few seconds and that was a drift dive about 20 mins boat ride from Meeru.

regards Dave.

Boduhithi, withthe prospect of Mantas and plenty of sharks

HP and Nassimo is the classic coral colour, with plenty of fish

Must see, next time, Miyaru Faru:

"At 30 metres, you’ll see White-tips swimming around, more active than you’ve ever seen. Then groups of Grey reef-sharks can invade from the blue and circle around. The Grey reef-shark is the icon of ‘sharkness’ in terms of shape and grace. Watch how they effortlessly swim against the current when they circle. Look for torn gill vents on females to see if they’ve been mating: males bite the female’s necks in order to hold on while copulating. Remain quietly on one spot or these shy animals will swim away. You might not notice shadows appear overhead while you’re admiring the sharks, but look up to see large bat-like forms of Eagle rays shift into view like a royal entourage. Once you’re close to your decompression limit, you just let yourself go with the current and follow the thila’s slope into the channel. On the way you can see Trevallies, Fusiliers, turtles, maybe a Napoleon wrasse. Try not to drift too quickly or you’ll pass the thila in no time. "

For some reason, I loved Chicken Island.
