Reviews for Whale Shark conservation in the Maldives


review 10 Dec 2016

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

Swimming with the megafauna (whale sharks and manta)

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Practice snorkelling beforehand if you're not used to it, but if you are, then you'll be fine. If seasick in the slightest, bring the necessary medicine; you don't want to waste boat time being ill. If sensitive to the sun, be prepared to put on lots of sunscreen frequently, and take seriously covering up against the sun.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

I think the program does support the local island economy. MWSRP really does reach out to networks of scientists to share their data and collaborate so the survey data does go on towards research.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

Excellent! Bonded with my batch - we even have our own song!
