I do have a 67mm thread on my housing – can I get a Flip-Mount?

Absolutely, if you have a 67mm thread on your housing and cannot find the right model, you can always use an adapter-ring like the one which is usually shipped with the Nauticam SMC:

Nauticam SMC adapter ring 67mm

If you don’t have this adapter-ring, have a look at this product:

If you have the Nauticam SMC adaptor ring already, we also have a Flip-Mount which comes without the adaptor ring here.

Please ask for more details.

Diving with Laamu’s Manta Rays

Manta rays are known as the gentle giants of the ocean and here at Six Senses Laamu, although sightings are not guaranteed, we are lucky enough to be able to encounter them year-round. Join the Manta Trust and Deep Blue Divers to explore our local manta point, Hithadhoo Corner and dive with the manta rays of Laamu. Each of the manta rays has a unique spot pattern on their belly which allows them to be individually identified. Before the dive, a researcher from the Manta Trust will give a briefing on how to take the perfect ID shot, how to interact with manta rays, provide insight into the research being carried out and answer any manta related questions you may have. After returning to the resort you will be emailed a Manta Memo including photos and information about the manta rays encountered on your dive. This exciting dive is suitable for confident, certified divers but due to the strong currents which are sometimes encountered at this site, a prior dive must be completed with Deep Blue Divers at a less challenging site. Ask us about getting your PADI Maldivian Manta Ray Specialty certification, which can be done as a speciality or can be a part of the PADI Advanced Open Water Course!

Other diving options:

  • 06:30 – 08:30 Early morning dive – Early morning dives are a great way to start the day! Enjoy a leisurely breakfast after your dive.
  • 09:00 – 15:30 Early morning dive – These trips go out to two channels and are geared towards the more advanced divers. Nitrox recommended. For 2-channel trips , a light lunch is provided on the boat (or beach if possible) and there is a surcharge of $65USD++/person.
  • 19:00 – 21:00 Night Dive – Night dives are great in Laamu! We go out on inner reefs where there is no current and also do night dives on our house reef where no boat rides are necessary. See for yourself what changes on the reef at night!
  • 19:30 – 21:30 Blackwater Dive – Blackwater dives are for divers who love the weird and wonderful! With strong lights attached to a drift line we dive inside the atoll where we attract critters which display a show for us. Did you ever try a Blackwater dive?

Fun Dives Schedule for Certified Divers

To accommodate all divers’ needs, we schedule our dive boats to go out 3 times a day. Choose the option(s) that suits you best. All our boat dives include a light snack (fruit skewers, pastry, coffee, tea and drinking water).
  • 07:30 – 10:30 Breakfast  – breakfast starts early, to give divers enough time.
  • 09:00 – 13:30 2-Tank dive trip – these trips often go out to one channel dive followed by one inner reef dive. The channel dives are geared towards the more advanced divers, as often these sites are exposed to stronger currents. For these dives Advanced Open Water and Nitrox are recommended.
  • 10:30 – 12:30 1-Tank dive trip – these trips are for those who want to sleep in or only want to do 1 dive and typically take place at a close by dive site where there are no currents, making for very relaxed, easy dives.
  • 15:00 – 17:00 1-Tank dive trip – these trips are for those who only want to do 1 dive, or a second or third dive of the day and usually take place at a close by dive site where there are no currents, making for very relaxed, easy dives.
All certified divers must show proof of certification. This is required to participate in fun diving activities. If you forget to bring your certification card we will do our best to try to find your certification online – However, failure to be able to prove certification will result in you not being able to dive as a certified diver and pre-booked dives will not be refunded.
