The colourful underwater world of the Maldives: Experience the fascination of manta rays with the Sultans way
The waters around the thousands of tropical islands of the Maldives are home to the largest living manta rays in the ocean. In fact, they rank amongst the global manta hot spots for many researcher and make it one of the biggest attractions of the Maldives. With two distinctive seasons, mantas make seasonal migration intending to take advantage of particularly rich areas of food. The most manta ray sightings can be experienced in the western side atolls during the Northeast Monsoon and in the eastern side atolls during the Southeast Monsoon. Divers and manta fans can observe these avid swimmers best during the months of June and October.
Scores of manta rays are seen, making regular visits to the “cleaning stations”, at the edge of reefs, enjoying the services rendered by the Cleaner Wrasses. An exceptional phenomenon can be observed at Hanifaru Bay in the central atolls – one of the most celebrated and seldom displayed underwater events. The cyclone feeding, which happens only about twelve times a year and is often commented by even the most frequent travelers as one of the best experiences of a lifetime.
