Home to 21 Species of Whale and Dolphin

  • The Maldives is home to 21 species of whale and dolphin and they are frequently sighted as they cross in the channels from one side of an atoll to another. They are sometimes spotted during the crossing from the airport to the capital of Malé. Many resorts organise cruises to the sea-lanes that dolphins regularly use, and independent dolphin watching cruises by smaller dhoni can be arranged by your accommodation provider. Operating out of Malé (bookings can be coordinated through your resort) the whale submarine is a chance for young and old to visit the underwater world without getting wet, while enjoying the exciting experience of diving in a real submarine. The cabin of the submarine is fully air-conditioned and has a normal atmospheric pressure so passengers breathe normal air. The whale submarine has safety features to ensure the safest, most comfortable ride, and is operated by a fully trained and certified team of pilots.
