Mantas are Making a Comeback!

08 Sep 2015

After the fairly quiet July, Komandoo Prodivers is swinging into high gear again. We understand that guests prefer to escape to the Maldives when winter hits at home, but we’d like to remind you again that diving in the Maldives is possible year round!

And how amazing it was this last month! The amount of fish was staggering, especially the juveniles were aplenty, as if the ocean was warming up for the upcoming high season. Baby fusiliers, redtooth triggerfish are to be found just about everywhere, and Anemone Thila offers a school of approximately 100 juvenile barracudas on the top reef.

Besides that, our adrenaline junkies enjoyed their scooter dives at The Peak with silvertip sharks and schooling eagle rays; a special mention goes to our 21-time repeaters Mic and Susanne who discovered a new, action-packed way of crossing the atoll channels to see the big fish – and are loving it!

Moreover, Carles and Victoria, 3rd time visitors, have been very lucky last week as they saw bottlenose dolphins while diving, not once, but twice, at Fushivaru Corner and Naifaru Kandu.

And the best of the best? The mantas are slowly coming back. Our local cleaning station received its first bookings of the season, seems like the mantas were desperate for a spa treatment. We hope more come rushing in soon, and we can’t wait for our first-time guests to meet them, and for our repeater guests to see some familiar – and hopefully some new – bellies underwater!
