How snorkelling can make your trip to Maldives a memorable one

In the Indian Ocean Maldives island is situated that has 26 atolls. The island offers dark blue oceans with extraordinary reefs, various vegetation and white sandy shorelines are some of the things that are offered by this island. Individuals can spend long days to simply loosen up and unwind as it is essentially a heaven.

With a huge number of various fish swimming around the corals it is an incredible spot for snorkeling, jumping or simply investigating the waters. More than 2,000 species of fish inhabit the 1,192 islands of the Maldives archipelago like manta rays, moray eels, sea cucumbers, leatherback turtles etc.

Shark spotting potential is often dictated by weather and region. The eastern atolls have best visibility from December to May. The west is best from June to November.

Snorkeling Experiences

Whale shark can reach up to 50,000 pounds and 40 feet and is the most famous fish in the archipelago. From a beach this whale shark is rarely spotted. However, from sea planes many Maldives services offer shark spotting flights.

You can enjoy the whale shark snorkelling in Maldives without any difficulty. Catering to dive-certified tourists and snorkelers wishing to scuba with these gentle giants a small industry of providers has grown up due to the following:

Whale sharks express a great deal of curiosity toward divers, and interact freely docile and are calm creatures.

Care must be taken not to stray into positions where the tail could inadvertently make contact as they are enormously powerful. If time permits the wonderful coral reefs and the multitude of sunken wrecks in the area make for unforgettable additional experiences.
