Most Recent Encounters in Kuda Hithi Island Reef

The amazing beauty and richness of Kuda Hithi Island’s reef was once again confirmed on our most recent snorkeling trip around the island.

Tortilla Tamarina Mangosteena, the young Hawksbill turtle, HK313 in the Maldivian Sea Turtle database, made herself present again which was wonderful to see. We also, for the first time, sighted a juvenile Green Sea Turtle swimming in a very deep area of the reef and as a result evaded our camera for identification pictures.

Also swimming within the reef were two adult black tip reef sharks, a white tip reef shark, two eagle rays as well as an octopus; making for an exceptional excursion.

The corals on the south west area of the reef appeared to be perfectly healthy which is positive, as this means that there was only one region of the reef that was slightly affected by heavy storms through the months of May and June; the north-east side facing Bodu Hithi Island.
