If you want whalesharks and Mantas...........

Having been to the Maldives a few times now (Meeru/Angaga/Sun Island/Liveaboard/Reethi Beach)

If you are planning a trip over the summer - I can heartily reccomend Reethi Beach. I was there for a week in August and we had numerous dives with Manta Rays, a snorkelling trip with 3 whalesharks and a dozen Mantas and a dive with them again 4 hours later.

Lost of pods of dolphins on the way to and from dive sites.

Snorkelling was fairly good off the island also.

I used a canon Ixus 75 (standard digital compact type camera) with an underwater casing for it.

I've also posted a couple of short videos of a whaleshark and a manta ray - I think you can access them either via my profile or if you look for photos and videos of reethi beach
