Chasing Mantas in Hanifaru Bay

It is currently ‘Manta Season’ at Baa Atoll. And for ocean lovers like me and my friend Yoyo, this is the best time to visit the area.

We took a 45-min domestic flight from Male’ (Velana International Airport) to Dharavandoo in Baa Atoll and as soon as we arrived at the hotel around 12noon, we already asked them to call the Dive Center if there is a Manta Snorkelling Trip in the afternoon to Hanifaru Bay.

Video: A Day in Male’ in Less Than Three Minutes

When you say Maldives, the very first thing that will come to people’s minds will be paradisaical islands, soft white sands, crystal clear waters, palm trees, luxury resorts and an expensive holiday.

But hey, Maldives has a city too and it’s called Male’.

Today me and my colleagues went to Male’ for a half day trip and I’m sharing our walk around the city in less than three minutes. Enjoy watching!

Automatic Shutdown

Hi everyone! It’s been a while since I have last posted. Been so busy lately and hope everyone’s doing well! (Chos! This opening is not so me LOL).

Work had taken up my life for the last few weeks, and I went back to drinking coffee to keep me awake. Sometimes even though I am fully awake, I just need a little kick to get started. Continue reading “Automatic Shutdown”

Failing & Free Diving

Yesterday, I met my free diving instructor for my “make up classes”, since as I mentioned in one of my previous posts, I failed my free diving certification.

I came prepared but unassuming. I practiced almost everyday for 2 months before coming back so deep inside, I was hoping to do well but I wasn’t expecting anything either. Two months ago I was over confident, thinking I could easily pass this certification, but I failed. So this time, I have mentally prepared myself for the worst.

A Sprinkle of Happiness

Today was a busy day. It happened to be a windy/rainy day too. I also didn’t have enough sleep last night and the fact that I cannot drink coffee anymore could have made things worse. But it didn’t.

It was a gloomy morning and for some reasons, I was happily drinking hot chocolate in the office while smiling. I felt like sun rays were coming out of my body. Oh, if only my aura could be seen. I was like a sun inside a box. Continue reading “A Sprinkle of Happiness”

Lessons I’ve Learned From My Free Diving Lessons

*Redundancy found*

I’ve always wanted to go for Free Diving Lessons and I have been searching for sessions here in the Maldives but I guess it isn’t a trend yet. Most dive centers only offer Scuba Diving Certification. Maybe because almost all the Maldivians who can swim (take note, not every Maldivian can swim given the type of location the country is in) can also free dive and even beat those who take lessons.

They can easily reach 38 meters even though the maximum depth to be certified is just 20 meters. Continue reading “Lessons I’ve Learned From My Free Diving Lessons”
