BONUS: Mantas and Mobulas, Mola Mola, Turtles, Tuna, Barracuda & many more!
Sharks are not the only thing that Fuvahmulah’s diving scene is famous for. As a matter of fact, due to the natural geographic formation of the volcanic island, Fuvahmulah plays host to a variety of pelagic fish and oceanic creatures.
Oceanic Mantas frequent the cleaning station at the island regularly, and can most frequently be sighted between the months of March and May. Oceanic Mantas can grow to very large sizes and is a truly majestic sight to see them gliding gently in the waters.
Mola Mola (and sometimes even whales!) like to visit this island, usually from January to March, although in smaller numbers than the rest of the creatures we have talked about.
Green sea turtles can often be found lazing around in the reefs of the island- all turtle species found in the Maldives have protected status.
Tuna, Barracuda and other fish hang around in large schools in Fuvahmulah year-round, and can be sighted during every dive.
