Whale Shark Encounter

Get up close and personal with the largest known extant fish species

Gaafu Alifu atoll is one of the world’s largest and deepest atolls and the astoundingly clear, blissfully warm waters immediately surrounding Raffles Maldives Meradhoo teem with a kaleidoscope of colourful fish. This unique bespoke journey takes guests out on a traditional dhoni to meet the magnificent spotted sharks. The Raffles marine biologist is on hand to acquaint you with the incredible creatures as well as identify passing sea life, including turtles, dolphins, and manta rays.
