We (at the moment snorklers only) will go to the Maldives from 28th Nov until 16th Dec 2012.
For the first 8 days we will stay at Viceroy Maldives - expensive but a great offer ) - for the remaining 9 days we are searching for one or two nice islands (medium price range) with a good chance to see Whale Sharks and Mantas.
At the moment we are flirting with Bathala, Helengeli, Thulhagiri or Mihiri (pricewise an ouch) or maybe Dusit Thani (same ouch as Mihiri), which are said to have a very good house reef for snorklers, but we have no clue if there is also a chance to see Whale Sharks and Mantas.
Therefore, do you have any recommendations for us where we shall to go have a good chance to see Whale Sharks and Mantas?
Many thanks for your help and best regards from Vienna/Austria
