The experience one gains in this paradise of an island is unparalleled. It is even more so when swimming alongside sharks is thrown into the bargain. The activity is one of the perks of staying at a Maldives luxury hotel. In fact, the likes of Naladhu Private Island Maldives set store by it.
South Ari Atoll
You can see whale sharks in abundance here, though this is not the only place. You don’t necessarily have to stay in the atoll as it is the starting point of many tours.
The best time for the sport
There isn’t a specific time period for it; you can go about swimming with sharks all year long.
There is a range of tour operators. But you need to take care when choosing one. Check the prices, itinerary and more importantly, reviews online.
It is not what you think it might be
While these creatures are called sharks, they are pretty innocuous, though the size might catch you off guard. Also, good swimming skills can never be overlooked.
