Dive Hanifaru 2010!
Summer 2010 is approaching quickly and with it come many new opportunities to dive with manta rays and whale sharks in the incredible Hanifaru Bay dive site in Baa Atoll, the Maldives. Hanifaru Bay has sprung to fame in recent years after being featured in the National Geographic Magazine. As shown in the documentary, Hanifaru is the setting for a spectacular natural phenomenon known as a manta ray “feeding frenzy”, during which up to 200 manta rays and up to a dozen whale sharks gather together to feed voraciously on the massive amounts of plankton found in Hanifaru Bay during the months of August and September each year.
