Diving with Laamu’s Manta Rays

Manta rays are known as the gentle giants of the ocean and here at Six Senses Laamu, although sightings are not guaranteed, we are lucky enough to be able to encounter them year-round. Join the Manta Trust and Deep Blue Divers to explore our local manta point, Hithadhoo Corner and dive with the manta rays of Laamu. Each of the manta rays has a unique spot pattern on their belly which allows them to be individually identified. Before the dive, a researcher from the Manta Trust will give a briefing on how to take the perfect ID shot, how to interact with manta rays, provide insight into the research being carried out and answer any manta related questions you may have. After returning to the resort you will be emailed a Manta Memo including photos and information about the manta rays encountered on your dive. This exciting dive is suitable for confident, certified divers but due to the strong currents which are sometimes encountered at this site, a prior dive must be completed with Deep Blue Divers at a less challenging site. Ask us about getting your PADI Maldivian Manta Ray Specialty certification, which can be done as a speciality or can be a part of the PADI Advanced Open Water Course!
