Manta point

Kaafu Atoll

Maldives - Manta Point

In the southwest monsoon season an astonishing number of Manta rays can be seen here when they come to be cleaned. The reef slopes gently down to 40 meters. It is interspersed with massive Porite corals - home to colonies of cleaner fish. The manta rays come in from the deep water and hover over the coral heads while the wrasses are set to work. Should you be unlucky enough not to see mantas, this is still a tremendous dive site: huge schools of fusiliers, oriental sweetlips, napoleon wrasses, turtles and moray eels.
