Mirihi Island Resort Offers Snorkeling Safari with Manta Rays

Diving in Maldives


Mirihi Island Resort is offering the guests to enjoy exhilarating days out snorkeling with one of the most impressive and elusive species in the world, the majestic manta ray.

Guests of all ages can dive into this once-in-a-lifetime experience and embark on a Manta Ray Safari off the South Ari Atoll in the Maldives, organised by the boutique hotel.

Guided by a team of local experts who know the waters like the back of their hand, guests will be taken day sailing aboard a traditional Maldivian Dhoni boat or a beautiful 55ft pine-wood yacht in search of these mysterious creatures of the deep.

Manta rays, though daunting in terms of size with a wing span of up to 12 feet across, are harmless to humans, feeding mainly on plankton and small organisms. Unlike their close relative the stingray, the manta ray has no tail stinger or barb and is one of the friendliest creatures in the sea.

If lucky enough to spot the Maldives’ largest sea inhabitant, guests are encouraged to jump into the water and snorkel alongside these gentle giants. Often appearing inquisitive in nature, the rays are known to majestically swoop over and around swimmers, at times coming thrillingly close; a breath-taking and humbling experience.

When not swimming with the manta rays, guests can enjoy intermittent stints of snorkelling where they can spot turtles, dolphins and whale sharks that flit and soar beneath. After an energetic morning keeping up with all manner of marine life guests can retire aboard the luxurious yacht or Dhoni and return to the island to indulge in a lavish lunch.

“We are delighted to unveil a new adventure for guests of Mirihi Island,” Mohammed Shareef, the island resort’s General Manager, was quoted in a statement, as saying.

“Spotting and swimming with manta rays is one of the most exhilarating experiences one can have in the Maldives, and this new excursion is sure to create memories travellers will treasure forever.”

Manta Ray Safaris at Mirihi Island take place from 9.30am until 3pm. Prices start from USD 115 (approximately £89) per person (excluding lunch) for a trip on a traditional Maldivian Dhoni boat or USD 160 (approximately £124) per person (excluding lunch) on the Mirihi Thari yacht, based on 10 guests sharing the excursion. Prices are subject to 10 percent service charge and 12 percent GST.
