Comments Timing is everything when it comes to the Mantas in Hanifaru Bay. I didn't have much flexibility in my dates as I was in the region for an event and snuck away to Dharavandhoo to try my luck. Getting there was pretty easy, flight into Male and then onto a somewhat rickety looking local plane to the island (booked by my Resort). For a 20 minute flight, it does seem a bit pricey at $250 return.
