The lagoon of Vilamendhoo Island is a safe nursery in which juvenile sharks and rays grow and learn to survive. Eventually, they move outside the lagoon into the reef zone. It is interesting and fun to watch the baby sharks herd baitfish trying to catch the weak ones for a meal. Also, to watch the rays burrow into the sand looking for crabs to eat.
You may also see blotched fantail, porcupine, mangrove whip, torpedo and eagle rays. All year, the waters around Vilamendhoo are well known for seeing whale sharks. Full day trips are frequently scheduled to nearby Mamigili, the 1st Whale Shark National Park.
