CAST A LINE AS THE SUN GOES DOWN

Fishing by sunset and in the night is entirely contradictory to Game fishing, night fishing is the most soothing and tranquil kind of exercise in the middle of the Indian ocean under the dark skies with the stars sparkling bright. The night fishing cruise leaves the resort during sun down enabling the sun worshippers to catch a glimpse of the sun setting on the western shore the Dhoni will take the guests to the outskirts of the atoll.

As the sun goes down and darkness spreads the Dhoni is anchored and lines are cast. The fish that will be caught at this time in the Maldives would include emperors, snappers, squirrelfish, jacks and other reef fishes. The chefs will turn the catch of the day into the most scintillating seafood dish.

 

WATCH THE DOLPHINS & MANTA’S

Spotting Dolphins is gaining much popularity in the Maldives, the Dolphin safari is an excursion designed to interest the visitor that wants to experience this once in a life time opportunity. The cruise leaves in the morning and the afternoon, and visitors could spot many species of Dolphin on these waters. Spinner dolphins are the most common as they are found in large numbers in this region, large dolphins such as short-finned pilot whales, other species of dolphin such as bottlenose dolphin, Fraser’s dolphin, striped dolphin, Risso’s dolphin and sharp-toothed dolphin could also be spotted.

Therefore with a large number of species of Dolphins visitors can be guaranteed to spot a few swimming in the Indian Ocean. Manta Rays are also common to this region therefore visitors would also be able to spot this type of fish on the safari. Once spotted the Dhoni would anchor and allow the visitors the opportunity to swim with these elegant creatures.
