On the last day of 2017, we dived first in Lankan Reef with white tip sharks, gutiar sharks and many reef fishes, second dive at Rasdhoo Madivaru, grey reef sharks and whitre tip sharks as usual, dog tooth tunas and Jack fishes were hunting in the afternoon time, an egale ray as well. We have had a special New Year Eve dinner on board, everyone loves our chief’s cooked.

Happy 2018.
On our second day, we dived at Rasdhoo Madivaru, Kan Thila with 20+ Grey reef sharks, Giant Nepoleon, Egale Rays, third dive at Fish Head with school of yellow snappers, 4 Turtles, grey reef and white tip sharks came really close to us, everyone is happy, last dive at Fesdhoo Goni, night dive with Manta.

The third day is a Manta day, we met two mantas and some white tip sharks at Moofushi Manta point, another manta showed up at Rangali Thila, afterthat, we headed to whale shark area, near mammigilli islands, to find whale shark!!

We searched whale sharks for two dives in South Ari Atoll on the forth day, but we saw many white tip sharks and school of Mobula rays and dolphins instead of whale shark, not bad. Alimatha night dive as the last dive with 50+nurse sharks, 10+stingrays and giant Jacks.

Last day we dived around Hulhumale area, tried to find more mantas but these day they have moved to the West side of Maldives due to the current and planktons, so Lankan Reef and Fish Tank with a rare guitar shark!!!!
Thanks for joining us everyone!!!!
