Mantas and whale sharks appear at the top of most divers and snorkellers ‘must see’ lists and with good reason – they are big and make a big impression on anyone privileged enough to spend time in the water with them.
Here in the Maldives, our teams at Euro-Divers are in the very fortunate position of being able to encounter these gentle giants of the ocean time and time again – it’s one of the best places in the world to see them, especially the areas of South Ari Atoll, North Male Atoll and Raa Atoll with sightings possible all year round but even more likely during the south-west monsoon season.

For manta hotspots that are within easy reach, book a stay at Alila, Club Med Finolhu, Kani, Dhigali, Kurumba, LUX, Meeru, and Vilamendhoo. Eriyadu and Kagi from January to April and keep your fingers crossed for awe-inspiring sights.
