Go swimming with manta rays

Swimming with manta rays is one of the top experiences for many visitors to the Maldives. This is one of the best places in the world to get a close encounter with these incredible creatures. If you are not a diver, then snorkelling trips can also be arranged.

The best areas for manta ray sightings are Baa Atoll, Addu Atoll, and Ari Atoll. The manta rays migrate throughout the year, so the best times to see them are from November to April on the western side of the atolls, and from May to October on the eastern side.
