Sub Aqua are the dive operator based at the Conrad Rangali resort in south
west South Ari atoll. I have been at this resort before and have filed

period and the time when you get most reliable whale shark sightings.
Rangali has a good and reasonably reliable manta point (with two or three
cleaning stations) and I saw mantas on every one of the 4 dives I did
