Happy Fish’s Ocean Of The World Excursion – Maldives 2023
Dive into a Once-in-a-Lifetime Adventure with Manta Rays in the Maldives!
Create a precious memory with your child that warms your heart for a lifetime. Immerse yourselves in the ethereal beauty of the Maldives, where your little one can experience the pure joy and wonder of swimming with the gentle giants of the ocean – the manta rays. Watch as their eyes light up with amazement and delight as they glide alongside these magnificent creatures, feeling a deep connection with the natural world and forging a bond between parent and child that is as profound as the ocean.
Join us on a 5-day, 4-night adventure in the heart of the Indian Ocean, where you can swim with the gentle giants of the ocean – manta rays. Our excursion is limited to 30 participants, with each child required to be accompanied by at least one adult.
At Happy Fish, we believe in providing a complete swimming experience for both children and adults. Our excursion to Maldives allows children to use their swimming skills and helps foster family bonding, and builds children’s confidence through snorkelling with manta rays.
Accommodation will be provided at a 4-star resort, where you can have the option to participate in various activities on and around the island, such as kayaking, jet skiing, island hopping, snorkelling, dolphin watching and more. All meals are included; each hotel room can accommodate up to 4 persons, with a minimum of 2 pax.
We will travel with our videographers, coaches, and crews to ensure a safe and enjoyable trip. Participants will receive a video of their swimming experience with the manta rays by the journey’s end. We will also conduct complimentary short snorkelling courses for adults and children to prepare for the trip.
Please note that children must be at least four years old and able to swim at least 10 meters independently to join the excursion. Please book promptly, as registration will close on 9 April 2023
