We went in late march and there were about 6 rays about 10 metres down. Amazing. You can hold your breath and dive down to get a better view of the gentle giants. There are also many moray eels hiding in the corals. Colourful fish too!

you can dive or go for snorkelling, any activity that involves swimming it's a very nice experience, because the fauna of this part of the ocean is really generous! try it, you won't be dissappointed!

This review is about the 'real' Manta Point in the Maldives, officially known as Hanifaru on Baa Atoll. This is a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve and only allows snorkeling. Scuba diving has been banned for 3-4 years now and visitor numbers are controlled. We booked our visit through our resort (Soneva Fushi) and part of the cost goes towards the environmental... More

Possibly one of the most placidly dramatic aquatic encounters in the Maldives is the graceful and commanding creature Manta Ray. Quite prevalent across most of the Maldives, we have seen them a number of times from shore. When the people at Country Travel mart mentioned to us about those space ship shaped fish we didn't expected this much. Its is... More

We were literally being swayed left and right and just following the movement. There was a wall on the left and was... More

Went to Manta Point while on the Yasawa Princess. Wrong season for the Mantas but it is still a great dive with loads of reef fish and the cleaning stations open for business for other species. As well as the smaller fish there were a number of white tip reef sharks and some eagle rays. Towards the end of the... More
