Swimming with the Whale Sharks

Ask anyone where the best place is to spot whale sharks and they'll tell you at the coral reef next to the Maamigili island. Prepare your snorkeling equipment to enjoy the company of these harmless giants. Usually, whale sharks can be spotted all year round. Since they are the biggest fish species, they can grow up to 40 feet in length. The Maldives waters are crystal clear and you'll be able to spot them fairly close up, surprised to see these creatures while you softly swim between them.
