Advice for diving Lankan Manta Point in Maldives

Considering that this dive site is extremely close to Male, and most of the liveaboards start their trips from this area, this is a perfect dive site for check dives. The dive site is quite a standard outter reef site, depending on the current - you will most likely get dropped of a bit North East of the site, along the reef and drift southwards, towards the tip with your right shoulder to the reef. You will come across the manta cleaning station sooner or later, which is basically a large coral block - you will probably need your instructor/dive guide to point it out however.

The only issue with this particular manta cleaning station is that you are very likely to run into a lot of divers/groups and there will always be the odd one that rises above the coral block and scares it away. Otherwise, a great dive if the mantas come.
