Mantas at Hanifaru Bay Maldives

Hanifaru Manta Snorkelling

(In season only)

The Baa Atoll plays host to an amazing natural phenomena, whereby large concentrations of plankton attract scores of Manta Rays to feed at Hanifaru Bay. This is seasonal and peaks between June and October, when you have the best chance of encountering these gentle giants. This snorkeling excursion is led by our Marine Biology team, together with a certified Tour Guide, and is likely to be one of the most memorable experiences you will ever have.
Please note that due to the status of the Marine Protected Area, we are only able to offer this excursion every other day. Please check with the HUB for the current schedule. You may also place your name on the Manta On Call list, and our team will call you when Mantas are sighted for a spontaneous outing in hopes of a Manta encounter, maximizing the chances of swimming alongside these graceful creatures.
