Manta Ray, Maldives All of these trips will be led by Dr. Chas Anderson. Chas is an expert on the whales and dolphins of the Indian Ocean, so you will receive the most comprehensive and up-to-date information available. All sightings from all trips are recorded as part of an on-going scientific study of the whales and dolphins within the region. And profits from all trips contribute towards further research on whales and dolphins and other marine life in the region. But we never forget that these trips are your holidays, and we strive to make sure that they are not only informative, but also thoroughly enjoyable.

All trips can be booked directly with us (info@whale-and-dolphin.com). Alternatively, if you would prefer to book via a travel company in your country, we can put you in touch with one of our agents.
