A ride on the Whale Submarine is one of the most renowned activities in the Maldives. You will be amazed to see the beauty of the underwater kingdom and how unique the experience is when compared to scuba diving or snorkeling. Brace yourselves as you get up close to Stingrays, Manta rays, whales, and all varieties of fish that only thrive in the deeper parts of the ocean. You would, in fact, be pleasantly surprised to know that the submarine dives more than 100 feet down the Indian ocean. Coral reefs that surround you will leave you awestruck and the forty-five-minute dive will leave you craving for more.

A major advantage of taking the Whale Submarine ride is the fact that it’s possible to take a dive at night which will leave you with an exhilarating feeling as the lights of the submarine illuminate the reefs around you thus reflecting a variety of different colours which adds on to the overall beauty of the underwater world.

But there are no washroom facilities available on the submarine so it is recommended to utilize this facility at the Whale Submarine Airport.
