If Maaya Thila is the ‘White Tip Reef Shark Capital of the Maldives’, the Fish Head dive site is renowned as the ‘Grey Reef Shark Capital’. And if you want to check it out, the Chaaya Reef Elliadhoo resort is your closest dive centre. Tim Godfrey describes Fish Head in his book ‘
- “The presence of a large school of grey reef sharks, combined with the favourable underwater scenery and the wide variety of marine life, have given this reef the reputation as being among the ten best dive sites in the world.”

You will be lucky to see one or two Grey Reef Sharks at Fish Head. They've all been fished out in the past 5 to 6 years by the Shark Fishermen from local islands. On Maaya Thila you will see the White-tip sharks at night. Grey Reef sharks are not to be seen even at that site.
Are they even still around? Do you think they might make a come back with the new shark ban by the Maldivian government?
