Junior Marine Biologist program at Six Senses Laamu

For this Summer holidays, Six Senses Laamu in association with MUI has launched a Junior Marine Biology program for all visitors between the age of 6 to 16. The program will be conducted as a one-on-one meeting with 10 MUI marine biologists. Moreover, the participants have the freedom to customize their own program.

Marteyne van Well, Six Senses Laamu general manager, says, “This program is truly unique. Unlike anything I’ve seen in the Maldives, it’s more than just a “be a marine biologist for a day’ experience. This is multiple sessions over the length of a guest’s stay that will help foster deeper engagement and understanding of marine biology.”


The trainers are experts in coral restoration, turtles, manta rays, seagrass and fisheries management. The junior participants also have the opportunity to be involved in the resort’s ongoing projects such as 420 sea turtle database or mid water rope coral conserving nursery.

Young guests who are interested in becoming a Junior Marine Biologist can register their interest at the time of their booking and be greeted on arrival by the MUI team, ready to begin their adventure.
