Manta Bay - Hanifaru, Maldives with Berkley White Oct 21 -Nov 4

Recommended Posts

There are a few spaces left on the October 21 - Nov 4th trip to the Maldives with Berkely White of Backscatter and Under Exposures.

 

This will be the 4th year in a row that we have chartered the Manthiri live aboard to see the massive manta congregation up in Hanifaru. We just can't get enough of this amazing phenomenom. This video says it all:

This is a photography trip with the emphesis on being at the right place at the right time to see the mantas, all the while working together so everyone gets a chance to get the shots. Professional underwater Photographer Berkley White will be leading this trip and offering his expertise to the group.

 

In addition to the manta action we have found some amazing dive sites nearby, so on our "off" days we can hit some manta cleaning stations, cruise the outer reefs looking for whale sharks, and dive the best wide angle sites in the area with amazing fish life and soft corals.

On a trip to this area in August we were advised that diving is now not permitted in Hanifaru - snorkelling only with 45 minute time limits. Still plenty of mantas at cleaning stations around the area though.

You're right, diving is not permitted in the protected zone, and we respect and follow the rules fully. This is similar to diving with the whale sharks in Mexico. But that's not a problem because there are a lot of great shots to be had in shallow water when the mantas swim in formation right below the surface. And the protected zone is a small area, diving is allowed on all the other sites.
