Vakkaru Maldives Brings You A Deep-Sea Odyssey With Oliver Steeds

Sunday 15th of May 2022

The ocean surrounds Vakkaru Maldives and is one of the main reasons many people return to the five-star resort. Vakkaru is located on its own white-sand island in the heart of the Baa Atoll, a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve since 2017 and home to a diverse array of marine life, including manta rays, sharks, and a variety of fish species.

Here, guests can explore this fascinating underwater world by snorkeling and diving on the house reef, in blue holes, or in nearby Hanifaru Bay, while learning about aquatic life from the resort's resident marine biologist.

However, this summer, Vakkaru takes a deeper dive into ocean conservation with a one-of-a-kind week-long residency by Oliver Steeds. Oliver is the founder and mission director of Nekton, a science-based organization that works with ocean nations to protect the seas and increase humanity's understanding of marine life.
