A joyride11 Sep 2011
Imagine a squadron of eagle rays streaming past, a couple of majestic mantas lingering around for half an hour and you diving with a scooter amongst them. Oh, and a whaleshark.
As evidenced by the photo, one can have amazing encounters around Vakarufalhi. This one took place at Digura Corner and there seems to be something about scooters that attracts big fish, as our divers have been having similar experiences quite frequently. Whalesharks remain surprisingly calm and don’t seem to be bothered by the excited divers at all.
What is even more awesome is that Marco, one of the divers, filmed the enviable encounter. Not the worst idea for a souvenir from the Maldives!
