The Maldives is often known as a paradise island that grants incredible privileges to all sorts of travellers. Swimming with whale sharks is one of the most wonderful activities you can try out when you are there.
The South Ari Atoll is special
Most excursions begin from the South Ari Atoll in the Maldives simply because whale sharks are in abundance here. You may be holidaying at Adaaran Club Rannalhi or similar property, but most probably you will have to come to the South Ari Atoll to begin your experience.
It’s an experience that can be enjoyed throughout the year
Different Maldives island tours are greater when done in different months of the year. But guess what… these swimming sessions with whale sharks can be enjoyed throughout the year.
No- they are not harmful!
Although the name given to them is ‘whale sharks’, they are still harmless. They are giants, but will not cause any harm to you.
Whale sharks are not the only ones to encounter
In addition to whale sharks, you can spot 25 other different shark species during your swimming excursion. Not to forget, there are many other fish and sea turtles to be observed during the same experience.
