Activities


SNORKELING
The reef around Vilamendhoo is spectacular and very close to the beach.
It is a wonderful experience to see the reef and its marine life while snorkeling.
To go to the reef, simply walk into the water and snorkel to the inside of the reef. Snorkel through any of the 10 “channels” through the reef to reach the outside of the reef, along the “wall”. Snorkel along the reef, in the direction against the current, as there is always some current, sometimes strong.­ If the current is too strong for your experience or comfort, then return inside the reef and return to the beach. When done snorkeling, return through any of
the 10 “channels” through the reef to reach the beach.


SCUBA DIVING
About Vilamendhoo Diving
The Maldives are beautiful coral islands surrounded by living reef, 26 Atolls in the middle
of the Indian Ocean. Water temperature is warm (26 – 30 degrees Celsius) and varies with depth (0 – 30 meters).
Coral is fragile and grows very slowly, about 2.5 cm per year, so to avoid damage, do not touch or step on it. In 1998, the extraordinarily warm waters of El Nino passed throughout the oceans, including the Maldives.­The high temperature killed much coral, resulting in its bleached appearance. Now, the coral is growing, again, and we hope this continues so that in the future, it will be as magnificent as it was in the past.
We also see an abundance and variety of other marine creatures found on the living reef, including 150 species of tropical fish such as sweet lips, trigger fish, butterfly fish, porcupine fish and many more.
Most marine life that we encounter is harmless, however some, such as stonefish, scorpion fish and lion fish may give a dangerous sting.­ These fish are rarely found in a sandy lagoon but to be safe, always watch where you place your bare feet.
The lagoon is a safe nursery in which juvenile sharks and rays grow and learn to survive. Eventually, they­ move outside the lagoon into the reef zone. It is interesting and fun to watch the baby sharks herd baitfish trying to catch the weak ones for a meal. Also, to watch the rays burrow into the sand looking for crabs to eat.
In the Maldives, these marine creatures are considered harmless when treated in the proper manner. Diving with reef sharks and manta rays is a popular attraction. From June through October, it is the season to dive with Mantas at Manta Point.
You may also see blotched fantail, porcupine, mangrove whip, torpedo and eagle rays. All year, the waters around Vilamendhoo are well known for seeing whale sharks. Full day trips are frequently scheduled to nearby Mamigili, the 1st Whale Shark National Park.
You may also see white tip, grey, silvertip, nurse, guitar and zebra sharks. Hawksbill and green turtles may also be seen from time to time. Spinner dolphins are commonly seen, usually from aboard a boat because the dolphins are shy creatures.
