All the year around
Diving and Dolphin watching - Six Senses Laamu is the first resort in the Laamu Atoll, and where it is possible to see beautiful and pristine coral reefs within minutes of the resort, on a dhoni ride or even in the House Reef. The reefs show very healthy hard corals, colorful reef fish, Hawksbill and Green Turtles, reef sharks and Eagle Rays - all possible to see either when snorkeling or diving. Manta rays can be encountered throughout the year on one of our close by dive sites. Juveniles of Napoleon Fish hang around the House Reef and dolphins, mainly Spinner dolphins but also Bottlenose dolphins, are commonly spotted from the boat during the dolphin cruise or from the resort. Guests can participate whenever they like, so long as they are in contact with the resident marine biologist.
