August at Kurumba Maldives

August at Kurumba Maldives

August at Kurumba Maldives was such a wonderful month with beautiful weather and most importantly, very nice diving!

We want to start by saying that MANTA SEASON HAS ALREADY STARTED!!

And we are looking forward for you to join us to see these magnificent animals. This month we had many encounters with the mantas where we saw each time between 1 to 6 mantas, all in the cleaning stations either at Sunlight Thila or at Lankan Manta Point.

We cannot describe how wonderful it feels to be surrounded by these giants and to watch them dance gracefully while getting cleaned by the cleaning wrasses. We have here a video for you to get a sneak peak of this amazing experience.

We have a new member in our dive shop and it’s name is Manta! 😀

Our instructor Dmitrii is very enthusiastic about photographing mantas and this month he managed to photograph the belly of an unidentified manta.

For those who don’t know, the mantas’ bellies are like their fingerprints and this way they can be differentiated from other mantas.

Dmitrii sent this picture to The Manta Trust Organization and they gave him the good news that he could get to name him since he was never seen before; now the manta name is Morphée.

So if you happen to do the manta dive with us do not forget your cameras and maybe you get lucky enough to name one!!

Also, this month we had the honor to certify many new divers!! Sixteen Open Water Divers and two Scuba Divers. We want to congratulate once again all these amazing people and thank them all for choosing us to start this new life adventure.

Here in Kurumba the dive center facilities are very convenient for courses and we have dive sites very close by which makes it perfect for beginner divers.

And a big plus is that people doing the courses during manta season have a high chance to see mantas on the dives of their open water course!! If you don’t believe us, ask to these new certify divers!!

We truly enjoyed August and we cannot wait to have more manta encounters, more amazing dives and more people experiencing diving for the first time in this following month!
