North Male

Male Atoll8 Oct 2011 - 21 Oct 2011

Took a 12 night liveaboard with Scubascuba covering North and South Ari and North and South Male. Dived the reefs near North Male on 19/20 Oct to main Manta Ray cleaning station, great sitings with 11 rays on one dive and 5-6 on the second.

Whalesharks were also present in the outer reef with up to three circling at one time who hung around for over an hour.

Lots of hawksbill turtles, spinner dolphins and white tip reef sharks also sited. Good schools of snapper, jacks, trevallys and almost endless red fang triggers on most reefs. Also plenty of circling sharks in the blue. More unusual sitings such as leaf and frog fish and plenty of nudibranchs for those who love the small stuff.

Dived during full moon leading to some strong currents in the afternoon dives.
