A fairytale from the Ocean

A fairytale from the Ocean

Once upon a time in Fish Head, one of Maldives’ most beautiful dive site, there was a rare one-off guitar fish (Rhynchobatus djiddensis). For years dive guides have been saying that this fish was a very shy resident in Fish Head. By now its presence was legendary, as very few divers managed to sight this wary creature.

It was known that the first boat to leave the jetty and take off was the luckiest one. This beautiful creature only shows up for the first divers coming to explore this amazing reef. The early morning divers and the more patient are rewarded by its presence in front of their camera lens…

This is what happened to us… check out our video below of the famous guitar shark…

Thank you to Marco Carè for the great video.
