we are travelling to Vilamendhoo in july/august and we would really love to see mantas and snorkel with them.
Is this the right time of the year for them to be there? Can they be seen on the housereef or do you have to go on a snorkeling trip?
It seems like everyone else on this forum is looking for the whale sharks... We went to Mexico last year and did a trip to snorkel with them. It was amazing! We saw at least 50 of them as they all gather at one point to eat plankton in the morning. In the afternoon they go deeper as the plankton is going deeper too at that time.
We didn't see any mantas there though, so we would really like to have the opportunity to see them in the Maldives.
