Hanifaru Bay is a unique marine reserve in the Maldives for people who love snorkeling with manta rays and whale sharks. The protected underwater bay is located in the UNESCO biosphere reserve of Baa Atoll. There are strict rules for being in place to protect and preserve this unique nature's wonder.
The reef at Hanifaru Bay can be compared to a giant funnel, measuring about 1,300 meters, where the inner narrow part is about 600 meters, and where whale sharks and mantas are the most common. Manta Rays season from May to November. During this period, huge masses of plankton get into the funnel attracting whales and manta schools to the feast.
At this time there can be found more than a hundred mantas and several whale sharks. This is the famous largest feeding station in the world.
