Welcome to Up North of Maldives.

Up North of Maldives are atolls from Haa Alif down to Baa and Lhaviyani atoll. The reef structures of the northern atolls are different from the rest of the Maldives. Reefs are relatively deeper and islands are mostly formed on its own housereef and reef structures on the atoll boundary are broken into single units. This unique geographical features of reef create a thriving ecosystem that supports large predatory fish that anglers crave to catch.

The Fishing

The up north are home to huge populations of bonefish, three different types of triggerfish, barracuda, snapper, grouper, permit, parrotfish and eight species of trevally, including the giant trevally. The most challenging fish to catch, though, is the fabled milkfish, a turbo-charged algae-eater growing to 40lbs.

The Facilities

Up North area of the Maldives has three airports for the anglers to fly to and start fishing from. Three more airports are under construction and will be in operation very soon.  Accommodation options are available in (1) luxury resorts and (2) in Guesthouses in local islands (3) live aboard on a mothership. Anglers can decide the accommodation types based on convenience and budget as well as close proximity to the fishing grounds.
