Maldives - Manta Bay October 21 – November 4


Hanifaru Bay, Maldives is one of the greatest dive sites in the world. For a few months each year, ocean currents and wind patterns align to capture krill in this white sand bay in shallow water. This tiny bay acts as a natural krill net and thus attracts hundreds of manta rays and dozens of whalesharks to feed on the dense krill buffet. When ocean conditions are perfect, divers can swim alongside the greatest gathering of mantas ever seen in the wild. When ocean currents are fickle, the bay can be nothing but sand. Good timing and luck are essential, thus our experienced boat and photo crew are essential for making the best out of our timing.
