Can you see yourself being at the centre of a whirlpool of activity as manta rays and whale sharks go into a feeding frenzy? Then Maldives liveaboard diving amid the plankton blooms around South Baa Atoll in Hanifaru lagoon is the way to go. You can see for yourself in this video courtesy of Save our Seas.

In an effort to conserve the proliferation of marine life in the area, Maldives’ Environmental Minister declared Hanifaru a Marine Protected Area on World Oceans Day, 8 June 2009. Fishing and boating are now restricted and diving activities are subject to strict controls. To assist with enforcing these measures Save our Seas has donated a patrol boat to police the reserve.
