Astoundingly beautiful soft corals. Abundant fish and invertebrates. Breathtaking large animal encounters. These are just a few of the words divers use to describe the Maldives. Located in the Indian Ocean, this grouping of thousands of jewel-like islands sees few divers from the Western Hemisphere — despite its world-class diving.
An archipelago such as this is almost impossible to adequately explore from a land-based resort. This is why knowledgeable divers choose the luxury liveaboard Manthiri. Everything about Manthiri is first class.
To ensure maximum comfort, Manthiri limits trips to just 12 passengers and employs a separate, 54-foot dive support vessel.
Lankan Manta Point is a seasonal dive site on the south eastern side of North Male Atoll. The dive site takes its name from the nearby island Lankanfinolhu (which translates to Paradise) and the manta cleaning stations that are located here.
The dive site is a gentle sloping reef that has three cleaning stations where the mantas queue up to use the services of the cleaner wrasse living there. Lucky divers can hover slightly away and below the cleaning station watching as the mantas come again and again and again!
As this reef also acts as a huge cleaning station, many visitors check in to the area. Regular sightings include white tip reef sharks, eagle rays, hump head wrasse, barracuda and hawksbill turtles. Also check in the cracks and crevices for lobster, moray eels, shrimp, octopus and other cool critters hanging around.
