Plankton party in the Maldives

Manta rays in the MaldivesMANTA "MADNESS": The small Hanifaru Bay in the Baa Atoll transforms itself into a plankton soup, certain days of each month, when conditions are right - mainly in the months May-November. The plankton blooming attracts a large number of hungry manta rays, which in turn attract a (too large) number of divers. Although in desperate need of regulations of the dive industry, Hanifaru is still a spectacular place - and provides great opportunities to get real close encounters with the friendly giants of the sea.
