Unfortunately, transportation to further islands is quite difficult. Public transportation is limited and private transportation might get quite costly. We could find out what a private speedboat to the island will cost you, but are quite certain that it will be a more affordable to travel back to Male’ by public speedboat and go to different islands from there.

We spot Whale sharks throughout the year. It depends a bit on the weather how easy they are to spot from the boat. The calmer the sea and sunnier it is, the easier it is to see them.
Other sharks and turtles are always around as well. Other (harmless) sharks we frequently see are: Black tip, White tip and Grey reef sharks. You’ll see nurse sharks more on dives than during snorkeling. Occasionally a different shark species visits, after which the snorkel/dive community goes out of their way to find them. It’s also possible to spot Mantas throughout the year when diving and for snorkeling. However, it is harder to predict what dates can be seen.
