If you’re visiting Omadhoo, you should not leave without having joined one of our whale shark safari excursions. We are blessed that our island is located in South Ari Atoll, one of the best places in the world for spotting whale sharks all year round. These gentle giants are filter feeders, meaning that although they are the largest fish on the planet, they are completely harmless to humans. Swimming alongside one of these colossal creatures is truly a once in a lifetime experience! In fact, snorkelling is one of the best ways to encounter whale sharks as they often swim very close to the surface, so this is an excursion for everyone!
