Kudadoo Maldives Private Island a dream resort to swim with Manta Rays
Kudadoo Maldives Private Island is located in the northern part of Lhaviyani Atoll, not so far from one of the famous Maldives manta hot spots called Fushifaru Thila. Its geographical location places it on the migration route of hundreds of mantas who, each year from November to April, swim towards their cleaning station.
Kudadoo provides you with numerous opportunities to observe and swim alongside mantas, with a variety of options available for your adventures.
Close-by, on a dreamy sandbank, or further away, by crossing the atoll to reach Fushifaru Thila, Lhaviyani’s famous manta hot spot.
1. Swim with Mantas at the resort’s sandbank and enjoy a dream picnic
Besides offering private and exclusive excursions to the Fushifaru Thila where manta come to feed on plankton and be cleant, Kudadoo also benefits from its sister island’s sandbank : the stunningly beautiful and so iconic Dream Island.
When manta rays flock to Fushifaru Thila from other atolls, they also pass by Dream Island, which is very close to Kudadoo, that you can reach by boat on a private excursion, alone by catamaran, or even by jet ski.
Whatever way you choose, your personal butler, alongside the resident marine biologists from Manta Trust researchers, stands ready to assist in crafting the perfect itinerary for your ocean exploration.
If you prefer a luxurious experience after your snorkeling adventure, you can also enjoy an exquisite picnic on Dream Island before heading back to celebrate your adventures by sipping champagne at the resort ( yes, Champagne is included in Kudadoo’s all-inclsuive plan ! ).
Go Swimming with Mantas at their feeding spot
From Kudadoo, you can reach a spot and swim with manta rays right at the location where they are feeding.
This manta experience is further away than the sandbank but it is really worth it.
From the resort, together with your butler and Hurawalhi’s resident marine biologist, you will cruise across Lhaviyani atoll for a complete immersion at the manta cleaning station Fushifaru Thila, where hundreds of them feed on a daily basis for several months.
Manta season sees these iconic Maldives creatures frequent nearby cleaning stations at the start of the season before moving on to embark upon a feeding frenzy at the sandbank close to Kudadoo, creating incredible opportunities to spend time with these iconic creatures.
Manta season in Lhaviyani Atoll
During the northeast monsoon in Lhaviyani Atoll, particularly from November to April ( with a peak in November-December ), you will have the extraordinary opportunity to encounter manta rays.
This is the time of the year that these graceful creatures gather to feed on plankton at the Fushifaru Thila cleaning station before migrating to other atolls like the iconic Baa, known for its world’s largest aggregation of manta rays : Hanifaru Bay.
