Those who love underwater excursions in the Maldives never say no to a swimming session with whale sharks. It’s a bucket-list experience for many travellers. Only a few destinations offer this fantastic experience, and the Maldives is undoubtedly one of the best.
The Whale Shark
The whale shark does not harm anyone, although many people think it does. It’s a huge sea animal, but very gentle. Generally, whale sharks live in the depths of the sea where they feel comfortable and safe.
Whale sharks reside in the Maldives all throughout the year. So, during your stay at Cinnamon Dhonveli Maldives or any other surf resort in Maldives, swimming with these majestic creatures is an activity that you can try out.
You can either take a diving or a snorkeling tour to best experience this activity. During this experience, you also get the chance to spot manta rays, sea turtles, dolphins, and many other species of tropical fish.
Things to note
Be it snorkeling or diving, you should do it with a certified trainer. This means you are always instructed as to what to do during your experience, and all you have to do is to follow the instructions well. The diving/ snorkeling tools are also provided by these training centers and it comes with the package.
