April 11, 2015. Underwater project in Maldives: large marine animals and the beauty of the Indian Ocean
April 2015. We accompanied a group of photographers for an underwater photography trip to the Maldives. The purpose of this trip was to photograph the ocean big animals such as whale sharks, manta rays, large stingrays and different species of sharks.
We did not encounter whale sharks but this trip made us nice surprises. During a night dive, we were able to approach a nurse sharks wall. During another night dive, we saw a ballet eight manta rays.
This photo project we also highlight the underwater bottoms of the Indian Ocean. We photographed many species of nudibranchs, shellfish and coral fish.
Climate change is beginning to be seen in this region: the currents become unpredictable. The visibility was very low compared to the one we observed during other visits.
