This review is about the 'real' Manta Point in the Maldives, officially known as Hanifaru on Baa Atoll. This is a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve and only allows snorkeling. Scuba diving has been banned for 3-4 years now and visitor numbers are controlled. We booked our visit through our resort (Soneva Fushi) and part of the cost goes towards the environmental... More

Possibly one of the most placidly dramatic aquatic encounters in the Maldives is the graceful and commanding creature Manta Ray. Quite prevalent across most of the Maldives, we have seen them a number of times from shore. When the people at Country Travel mart mentioned to us about those space ship shaped fish we didn't expected this much. Its is... More

Went to Manta Point while on the Yasawa Princess. Wrong season for the Mantas but it is still a great dive with loads of reef fish and the cleaning stations open for business for other species. As well as the smaller fish there were a number of white tip reef sharks and some eagle rays. Towards the end of the... More

We dove in a dive spot called Lankan Manta Point which is just 5 minutes from Paradise Island Resort, North Male. This was a wonderful dive, it was the best i ever made! We saw a group of 5 mantas and was amazing staying there watching them.

Went to this reef which is 40 minutes south of Hudhuran Fushi Island North Male ATOL. Saw 4 large Manta's at this well known (and was told only one) cleaning station. Visibility was about 25 metres and the Mantas were swimming above us. This was our third visit to this cleaning station during our stay. Each time we saw Mantas.... More
