House reef snorkeling with experience guides can make your snorkeling experience great. Its advisable to take a guide on your first experience if you have less experience in Maldivian waters.

One of the popular activities here is the Ship Wreck, an attraction for locals as well as tourists. The wreck is positioned almost 5 meters depth below the surface. If you snorkel here, you can see how the boat rest on the sand. It is said that it is a 4 rooms safari vessel made of steel that sunk while it was used as a floating bar. The wreck is nice for photographic opportunities. My advice is to go there early morning or late afternoon to avoid the crowds.
Snorkeling with Nurse Sharks

Still looking for something more? This is the famous Nurse shark located just 30 minutes from Lagoon View. It is said to be left over tuna bones, heads and meats that had been dumped in the ocean attracted the nurse sharks. Now as the sharks are used to eat every day, they stay near the reef. We don’t support feeding marine animals nor do we advise any tourist or local to do so and chumming in this area by snorkeling operators is a big no! There are a lot of sharks and also Giant Jack fish in this lagoon. We would advise to go either early in the day or late evening when it is far quieter. For some people just staying in the boat and observing out of the water is enough. If you do wish to swim, please don’t touch any marine life, they don’t like it and it’s not good for them. Stay calm and float on the surface and just see how many you can spot.

Whale shark sightings are excellent year-round. These giants eat nothing but plankton and maybe the odd small fish that gets caught up in their super large mouths. The biggest whale sharks can be measured up to 12 meters in length. Boats cruise the area to locate a whale shark, mostly snorkeling with them. Sometimes there are a lot of boats, and many people in the water with one whale shark, which is not good for the whale shark nor for those snorkeling. My recommendation would be asking locals what time is the best to see these gentle giants as they will always know better. Ensure you also select an operator who understands and follows the guidelines for safe and responsible whale shark encounters.
