PREPARE TO WITNESS MARINE LIFE AT ITS MOST MESMERISING
  • The southern tip of the South Ari atoll is known globally as a hotspot for whale sharks and, in particular, their annual migration to warmer waters. If you'd like to see the world's largest fish in its natural habitat, we've got a real treat for you. Our whale shark day trip begins with a presentation on this beguiling species, followed by the main attraction: a snorkeling trip. Stopping for lunch on a nearby island, the locals will reveal how they used to hunt whale sharks… Ending a remarkable day, a photo ID session will bring to life the stories of individual whale sharks.
