I loved being here and diving, they have very professional team. They guided me really well and now I can dive on my own. Really felt safe with them. The underwater is extremely beautiful and I can never forget it in my life.

Very professional team!! Service was one of the best. I panicked at first but the dive master helped me overcome my fear. We really felt were in good hands. Kudos to Diver's lodge team!

Divers Lodge made Villingili island so memorable and rewarding for us. As a scuba diver of 25+ years I've experienced every type of dive: from luxurious five-star resort to plunging in backwards off an outboard motorboat in the Caribbean to walking into the frigid waters of Northern California to remote Easter Island. So I speak with some experience when I... More

I honestly did not expect such an enlightening experience.

The way they teach makes you fall in love with the art called diving. I'm thankful for... More

The dive centre does not look as good as it really is from the outside. We went here because an alternative dive centre on the island (Nine Stars) did not have capacity for us. The owner/manager of the dive centre is very professional, he checked all our certification and also evaluated our level of experience in order to recommend the... More

We have done 7 dives each, 6 of them on boat trips which was always different place, chosen according to conditions and preferences. All instructors, who we were diving with, were nice, friendly, helpful and made our stay on Maldives and dives perfect. Thank you!

Strolling around Vilingili I spotted the dive shop and decided to ask to snorkel and enjoyed a excellent 1.5 hours out on the nearby reef. It whetted my appetite to try a scuba and the brilliant staff there arranged for me to do a Discover Scuba dive the following morning - the explanations were very clear, easy to follow, reassuring....

Great and cosy little dive shop on Vilingili Island. Ricky our divemaster was fun, professional and a very personable person. Highly recomended, thanks for a great experience for me and my girlfriend on my brief trip to the Maldives. Simon (PADI Rescue Diver)
