Manta season at Maayafushi

Manta season at Maayafushi

5,000 mantas* have been identified in the Maldives – making this the world’s largest population of these graceful creatures.

To the joy of our snorkelers, manta season is in full swing at Maayafushi.

Most of the manta rays in the Maldives tend to be resident in the same atoll. Seasonal migration occurs during the change in monsoon, like now, as these magnificent creatures follow plankton blooms, which they feed on.

Do not miss the opportunity to swim close to these gentle giants which are graceful and harmless. Admiring their elegant movements underwater will be one of the best memory a snorkeler could wish for!
