Whale Sharl Point

the largest fish in the world, can reach up to a massive 12 meters in length, and are common in the Maldives. Historically, they were only to be found in the Maldives during the southwest monsoon season, but now, due to several changes in the environment including higher water temperatures and increased levels of plankton, whale sharks can be found swimming around the Maldives and in particular, the Ari and Baa Atolls throughout the year. The great thing about whale sharks is you don't have to be a certified scuba diver to enjoy a whale shark encounter.
