Manta Ray watching
Conrad Maldives is the only place in the country where you can watch manta rays without getting wet. During the manta season (November until April) these remarkable creatures swim almost every night under the bridge between our two islands. Simply wander along the bridge any time after dark and the chances are that you will eventually be privileged to watch a passing manta as it swims and loops through the ocean below you.
If you're happy to get wet, during the manta season we also offer dives to the nearby Manta point which is a manta cleaning station about 10 minutes by boat from Rangali Island.
Snorkel with a whale shark
Measuring up to 15 metres, whale sharks are the largest fish in the ocean and are also among the friendliest because they can only eat plankton and very small fish.
