About whale wharks
Whale sharks are the biggest living fish on the planet with their mouth reaching about one meter in width.
Yes, they could swallow you whole, but don’t worry – they are filter feeders and like to eat plankton, the smallest creatures in the ocean!
Appearing on the IUCN Red List and listed as endangered since 2016, whale sharks are important for the health of our oceans.
Whale sharks are under threat worldwide due to habitat loss, marine pollution, disturbance or harassment by boats and divers engaged in irresponsible tourism activities.
In the Maldives, we are lucky to have regular encounters with these magnificent creatures and marine conservation rules to protect them.
Come and enjoy the incredible experience of spending time with whale sharks in Ari Atoll with Euro-Divers.
