Join other SeaCrush divers for this Mantas Trip in Maldives from October 10-20, 2024! Once a year, large aggregations of mantas take place in September-October at full moon. From Male, we will head towards the atolls of Lhaviyani, Raa, and Baa. Get ready to dive and snorkel with dozens of manta rays, and observe nurse sharks, whale sharks, and multitudes of tropical fish! We particularly like the splendid boat, the dedicated team, and the excellent value for money of this diving cruise!
They adhere to Longitude 181's International Charter for Responsible Diving and reduce the use of single-use plastics as much as possible. SeaCrush team will send all the manta rays pictures we'll take to the Manta Trust NGO to identify them.
