Another fabulous dive at Hithadhoo Point (including a manta
sighting!) with Oscar
This was our last day at the Six
Senses resort on Laamu
Atoll in the Maldives, and we were lucky with a day
of incredible visibility.
This is technically three dives presented as one: first, along a
reef to warm up; second, at Hithadhoo Point; and third, along
the Yin Yang reef lip to push our deep-diving capabilities.
It was everything we wanted: not only did we spot a beautiful
reef manta ray (Manta alfredi), but an overwhelming number of turtles,
sharks, and all other manner of fishes.
This alone made the dives well worth it; but even without, the
number of sharks (not shown in pictures — they generally
fade out against the sea bed) and turtles kept us constantly at
At the last dive site, Oscar
helped tune our free-diving skills to reach below 20 metres.
A skill we look forward to using more often!
