What's this trip all about ?

Scuba diving In Maldives With Giant Manta Rays (Special Trip)

Scuba diving in Maldives, in general, is a total dream but now add to that a rare congregation of dozens and sometimes even hundreds of Giant Manta Rays that are “flying” around you underwater!  Most divers are happy seeing one Manta Ray, but seeing them play around in a group is a memory for life!

Manta Rays are super peaceful, gentle and totally harmless (don’t confuse them with Sting Rays, that can sting) and each one of them can grow up to 15- 20 feet in wingspan, let that settle in!!!

They eat plankton, the tiniest particles in the oceans and not human beings 🙂

This is an extraordinary natural phenomenon that has been happening in a really special and remote part of the Maldives every year between July and September.  A bay the size of a football field acts like a funnel and traps plankton underwater that attracts these friendly “Giant Underwater Birds” aka manta Rays that look like Alien Space Ships, to come feed on that plankton!

The bay where Manta rays congregate to feed is less than 10 minutes away from our Hotel on a speed boat. We have drones to check for if Manta rays have arrived in the bay and plan the snorkelling trip accordingly to give you the best chance and enjoying this spectacular phenomena.

If you are an experienced diver, you are in for a party and if you are a beginner, you are going to be spoilt for life!

“But I have never gone scuba diving before!! “

As mentioned earlier, the best part is that this Manta Rays Maldives Scuba diving Trip is not just for experienced Scuba Divers but is also open to complete beginners. For those who want to learn Scuba Diving and finish their Beginner’s 4 Day PADI Open Water Course.

And the ones who have already finished their 4 Day Open Water Course, can come along and finish your Advanced Open Water Course during this trip.

” Doesn’t Scuba diving In Maldives Cost A Fortune Though?”

In general, you cannot stay in the Maldives without having to sell your kidney, leave alone the diving costs 🙂  This Maldives Diving package, however, is all about White Sands, crystal clear waters, an extraordinary underwater experience of a lifetime and everything else that the Maldives embodies, EXCEPT THE PROHIBITIVELY EXPENSIVE PART!

This Manta Rays Maldives Scuba diving Trip, like almost all our small group trips, is relatively budget friendly (considering that the Maldives is known to be ultra expensive) and yet doesn’t sacrifice the awesomeness.

We will be staying at a fantastic Hotel right off a white sand beach and turquoise waters with all modern comforts on a gorgeous little island in the middle of nowhere and experiencing what even most divers in the world won’t in this lifetime.

All this, at an unbelievable fraction of the general exorbitant Maldives Price tags!

In a Nutshell:

– This is a super epic annual 5 night 6 day trip is extremely sought after by serious Scuba divers and beginner divers alike, from around the world!!

– Manta Rays are absolutely harmless, gentle and peaceful creatures that feed on plankton (not to be confused with Sting Rays that can sting)!!! 🙂

– You can do this super special scuba diving trip ONLY IN July, August and September, because this super rare Manta Ray Congregation Phenomena of dozens and possibly hundreds of Manta Rays congregating in one place happens only during monsoon time due to the plankton build up in the water during this time, which is what they come together to feed on !

divers with manta ray experiences

– Monsoon in the Maldives is not what you imagine, it rains in short spurts from time to time and not a constant downpour and this in facts keeps the temperatures cool instead of the usual burning sun and sunsets are super colourful and gorgeous due to the clouds.

– This is an all inclusive trip with accommodation at a premium resort right on the beach with all meals, domestic flights, scuba diving, government permissions, all taken care of in the package itself.

Itinerary

Day 1Land In Maldives and head to the Island

 Land at Male International Airport which is the Capital of Maldives anytime in the day.

You will then board another 30-minute domestic flight (included in the package) from the Domestic Terminal next door which will take you straight to our secret island and check in at our gorgeous resort where you will meet the rest of the group.

The remainder of the day is free to chill, relax and enjoy the spectacular view from this tiny little gem of an island in the middle of nowhere.

The resort is right on a white sands, turquoise waters beach, check out pictures in the photo on top of this page.

Day 2 - Day 5Scuba dive, Chill, Explore

  •  You will begin your Open water Scuba diving Course if you are a beginner or Advanced Open Water Course / Fun Dives if you are already a certified/ experienced Diver from Day 2 all the way to Day 5 every day while you enjoy the spectacular underwater world of Maldives every day.

Typically, you will be busy with your  diving/diving course post breakfast until noon or early afternoon, after which you have the rest of the day to relax or explore.

  • If you are a certified diver already, you can go for 2 dives in the morning and one optional dive in the afternoon and even a night dive on one of the nights. And if the Mantas don’t play shy, everyone is in for a treat because most of the dive sites around our Island are hotspots for Manta Rays!

 

  • On one of these 4 days, you will also go for the special Manta Rays snorkelling excursion into the Bay where the Manta Rays congregate  frequently to feed on plankton, less than 10 minutes away from our Hotel on a speed boat. We have drones to check for if Manta rays have arrived in the bay and plan the snorkelling trip accordingly to give you the best chance and enjoying this spectacular phenomena.

If you are lucky, think hundreds of Manta Rays with wingspans of upto 15 feet flying all around you underwater like Alien Spaceships 🙂

  • Everyday, the rest of the day is free to hang out on the beach right at your doorstep and enjoy the colourful sunsets. Try your hand at Paddleboarding or Canoeing for fun or even check out one of the nearby ” 5 Star Resort Islands” and spend the afternoon/evening there in ultra luxurious environments and see what the fuss is all about 🙂

Day 6Departure Day

You take your domestic flight (included in the package) back from the Island to Male (the capital) and then you are ready to fly back home on any flight that departs post noon, ideally.
