Travel Specialist

I'm here to tailor-make your perfect Maldives holiday. Give me a call and I'll use my expertise to create your personalised experience.

Cruise across Hanifaru Bay's Baa Atoll and all its offerings on this luxury private charter, reserved just for you, for the entire day. Hanifaru Bay isn’t like most bays; it’s a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve, housing manta rays and whale sharks within its vast waters. These gentle giants tend to hang around in May to November, so schedule your trip accordingly, especially if you wish to take a swim by their sides. Alternatively, you can opt for a speed boat ride to seek out more mantas. To get the most out of your trip, and for the best chances or seeing some sea life, we recommend spending around four to six hours exploring.
