And we are Offering to dive and Snorkelling Hanifaru Bay
Hanifaru Bay in Baa Atoll, Maldives, is famous for being a nursery ground for grey sharks, and sting rays. It is also one of the very few places in the world where whale sharks congregate to mate. However it is best known for its concentration of the enigmatic, graceful, inquisitive and charismatic reef manta rays (Manta alfredi).
Hundreds of these large, graceful, cartilaginous elasmobranch fish congregate to gorge themselves in the plankton rich waters. Not surprisingly, another species flocks here to dive Maldives' amazing bay
When time and tide align, fortunate snorkelers get to observe and capture a roiling, whirling feast. Generally manta feeding is akin to a coral-reef ballet. However, due to the confined space and sheer numbers, the status quo is all but forgotten. Their natural feeding patterns are replaced by feeding frenzy behaviour which results in a disorganised, bumper-car like performance.
What’s so special about Hanifaru Bay?
Hanifaru in Baa Atoll, is an uninhabited island of the Maldives with a small, enclosed, underwater bay approximately the size of a football field, locally known as ‘Vandhumaafaru Adi’.
Observing the manta feeding freezy in Hanifaru Bay is a spectacle to behold. Guy Stevens, a British marine biologist and director of the Manta Trust, shares his experiences, “Just after high tide you’ll see a few manta rays turn up, then poof, a whole group will move in, and you’ll get as many as 200 feeding for 2 to 4 hours in a bay no bigger than a soccer field”. This small area coupled with the rich plankton-filled soup has altered the natural feeding habits of these graceful creatures whose wingspan can reach up to 3.5m.
This is a peaceful pretty awesome atmosphere to live
