Exclusive to Four Seasons Resort Maldives at Landaa Giraavaru, home to the Maldivian Manta Ray Project, your thrilling day of science and adventure begins when you hop aboard a dhoni with some of the world’s leading experts on manta rays. Cruise the turquoise waters of the Baa Atoll UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve, where you’ll learn to spot these gentle giants in the water, help record essential environmental information and learn to take identification photos, a critical component of manta ray conservation. When you’re ready to take your oceanic study to new depths, free-dive into the Indian Ocean to observe these spectacular sea creatures in their natural underwater habitat.
