The richness and variety of Marine life in Maldives has to be seen to be believed. There are over 700 varieties of fish that have been seen swimming around the lovely coral reefs and atolls of the Maldives.
And Maldives ranks among the top five places on Earth for watching whales and Dolphins. Over 20 different whale and dolphin species can be seen here. Compare this with the handful or less that are regularly seen at most other destinations and you will see why the Maldives is so attractive for whale and dolphin watchers. In addition to this great diversity of species, another great attraction of whale and dolphin watching in the Maldives is that it is so easy and comfortable. No problem with arctic winds here! There are very few other places where you can relax under tropical skies, watching giant whales swim past right in front of you.
