So…you spend loads of money on Scuba diving (PADI actually stands for Pay.Another. Dollar. In) , then you get to see a fantastic Manta Ray, close enough to touch…while snorkelling. Unforgettable. June 18, Rah Dhigga Island.

    Crikey, the Reef Shark looks a bit close for comfort. How big was it? And how fast did you swim away?

    Actually I didn’t manage to get a picture of the really big shark we saw (and he saw us!) – it was a Grey reef shark about 8.5ft long. The ones in the photos are White Tip Reef Sharks, about 5.5 – 6.5 feet. Perfectly harmless & much better at swimming than Scuba divers!

    Stunning photos! Must have been an exciting holiday…

    A fine time was had! good to hear from you C.

  • Wendy and David

    Fantastic photos – we’re going in Nov so hope to see lots also! You wore a full wet suit; we intended to wear shorties – what do you think?

  • cushty

    Warmth wise you’ll be fine in shorties, but I always feel more comfortable in a full suit – If you are ever unlucky enough to catch exposed flesh on razor sharp coral you’ll see why! Have a great time in the Maldives folks….
