We have both Bottlenose and Spinner dolphins in Ari Atoll. They typically travel in small pods ranging from five to fifteen. On rare occasions, these smaller pods merge to form a super pod that can range anywhere from 50 to over 100 dolphins. We have also seen pilot whales swim alongside the dolphins.
South Ari Atoll is well-known for its amazing variety of fish and rich ocean life. Groupers, sweetlips, surgeonfish, fusiliers, moray eels, turtles, eagle rays, manta rays and many many more can be spotted. Nemo and Dory await you!
The mantas that swim around Dhigurah are ‘reef mantas’. Although smaller than the oceanic mantas, the reef mantas are still pretty big, growing to an average wing span of 3-3.5 meters (9-11.5ft). Hop on a boat to snorkel or dive with these animals around the corner! Or even better, paddle away on an SUP or canoe, take a mask and plunge in just outside of Dhigurah.
