Akirifushi Caves is a boat accessible salt water dive site, located in Akirifushi, Maldives. This dive site has an average rating of 4.00 out of 5 from 1 scuba divers. The maximum depth is 81-90ft/25-27m. The average visibility is 81-90ft/25-27m.

This is a strenuous drift dive with cool caves, requiring divers to fin hard to get to each cave through the current. As with all Maldive dives, this is an advanced dive requiring a computer to monitor decompression stops due to the depths. Also the currents are not only strong horizontally, but also vertically, potentially moving the diver up or down in the water too quickly.

This was really my first strong current drift dive, but luckily we did not bump into the fire coral too often ;)
The fish hang upside down in caves and bubbles from divers in caves below would come through.
Green stony (fire) coral was everywhere with little orange fish hiding behind out of the current.
