Baa Atoll is a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve and is representative of the Maldives’ high diversity of reef animals, with stony and soft corals, reef associated fish species, marine turtles, manta rays and whale sharks. It's also the location of Hanifaru Bay which is one the few places in the world where whale sharks and manta rays congregate. But you will have to come during the off season to have the highest chance of encountering manta’s and whalesharks!

If you're looking for fine dry weather without clouds and with lots of sunshine then you should visit the Maldives during the North East monsoon between December and April. This is the dry season and the high season. Between May and November the skies can be cloudy, humidity is higher and rain is more likely. This is the low season, and there are fewer tourists and prices are lower.
First off you will have to get to Malé International Airport www.maleairport.com (Airport code MAL). This is the main international airport in the Maldives. It is located on Hulhule Island in the North Male Atoll near the capital island Male.
