ACTIVITIES & EXCURSION
What better way to more fully experience the abundant marine life and colourful corals than to be right there amongst them?
Our fully equipped PADI dive centre with enthusiastic multi-lingual instructors offers a wide range of underwater adventures catering for all levels from beginners to experienced divers. Beginners will become ‘hooked’ when they discover the amazing underwater world, while experienced divers are sure to see something new among the many types of sharks, mantas, turtles, napoleons, tuna and other smaller, but maybe more colourful, dwellers on the reef.
There are two dives each day, morning and afternoon, from on board a Maldivian dhoni. Night dives, half day and full day trips to sites further afield are organised regularly. In addition, a range of courses leading to PADI certification is on offer. Snorkelling is a must in the Maldives. If you don’t want to dive, or in addition to diving, you can see so many different vibrant corals, colourful fish and even turtles just from the surface of the water.
Our team is available to help beginners gain their first taste of the wonderful underwater world in the lagoon before progressing to the house reef and even a boat trip to snorkel at the Coral Garden.
For more experienced snorkelers there is a range of full morning snorkel safaris by boat to other reefs, all guided by a marine biologist who can help you identify what you see. Choose from spotting manta rays at Manta Point (seasonal), swimming with whale sharks at Ocean Reef, turtles in Boli Thila and a whole range of colourful fish and corals at Bodu, Kuda, Clementhila or the Sandbank. While away a quiet afternoon on the deserted island of Lonubo.
Visit one of the local islands, Dhangethi, with its typical Maldivian village, for a taste of local lifestyle and culture and maybe do a little souvenir shopping.
Take a full day island-hopping trip with a beach barbecue for lunch. Big Game Fishing for Wahoo, Barracuda or Sailfish on one of the half day or full day trips. Alternatively, go trolling, another popular recreational sport in the Maldives, where a fishing line is drawn by a local Dhoni through the bountiful waters. Common catch includes Rainbow Runner, Wahoo and Yellow Fin Tuna. The sunset cruise is a must! Enjoy a special cocktail while watching the fiery sun disappear and the sky turn that wonderful shade of pink ....so romantic! If you’re lucky you might even see a few dolphins Our water sports center has a range of windsurfing equipment, catamarans, canoes and pedaloes. If you are new to windsurfing or sailing, our staff will be happy to ‘show you the ropes’.
