About This package

Swimming with manta rays in their natural environment is a truly aweinspiring experience. You can tell you’re witnessing something incredible as these massive, gentle creatures glide effortlessly below you. Those who’ve experienced it say they had a feeling of connection, amazement and clarity that stayed with them long after leaving Maldives.

There are few places in the world where you can have this experience. Hanifaru Bay near Dharavandhoo Island is one of those rare places, surrounded by a designated UNESCO marine protected Area.

Conservation of the species is a top priority in Maldives Our tours are carefully planned and run in a way that allows the manta rays to carry out their normal behaviours without disruption.

Dharavandhoo Beach

The island itself is divided into two parts: a domestic airport and a village. The village occupies almost the half of the island. It’s not large, but well-managed. There are litter bins on the streets. It’s a rare thing for local islands.

Bikini beach is quite long and occupies almost the whole northern part of the island. The beach has sun beds, hammocks, swings and umbrellas. During the off-season, the ocean brings a lot of garbage, which does not always have time to clean up. So be prepared for this.
