Malè North - Gaafaru - Baa - Goidhoo
One week safari starting and ending at Hulumale / Malè.
We start our cruise northward and according to the season we will moor for the night on the east or west side of the Atoll.
Male North Atoll has beautiful dives in “thilas” which are covered with soft corals and are home to many different kind of reef fishes in big schools. We keep cruising toward Baa Atoll passing through the small Gaafaru Atoll, renowned for its wrecks (lady Christine, Erlangen, SS Seagul). Since Baa Atoll does not have many turistic resorts, it is still possible to find many uninhabited islands with beautiful coral reefs perfect for snorkeling. As far as diving is concerned, here we can find very peculiar dive sites characterized by the abundance of hard and soft corals. North-east in Bathalaa Kandu it is possible to spot the rare pink coral (distichopora violacea) and in the marine protected area of Dhigali Haa Thila, covered with beautiful soft corals and black coral bushes, we can encounter pelagics such as jacks, barracudas and also grey sharks. But the highlight of the atoll is Hanifaru Bay. Here from May until November an exceptional concentration of kreel attracts feeding mantas by the hundreds and often some whale sharks also feed along side them. There will be stops at fishing villages and, upon return to Male North the last day before the departure, will be possible to visit Malè.
