It's a great place, mantas are (almost) guaranteed and whale sharks aren't too uncommon. Enjoy.

We are looking at Feb/March, anyone have experience with manta encounters during this period?
I've been fortunate enough to get 14 trips to the Maldives mostly to the South Ari Atoll.
Some of the best trips have been in February and March weather wise and I know from experience that there are Manta's in numbers at sites like Pannettone at this time of year.
The site is very near to Thudafushi Island and the Manta's and occasional Whale-sharks are there from late December to early April.
Hope this helps
There's no dignity in diving. Especially as you get older.
