1. Snorkelling tour
Maldives has become one of the world’s most desirable destinations to discover the beauty of the underwater world. You can either board the Dhoni to see the coral reefs up close or jump in the water around the atolls to meet the vividly coloured fish that await you. Beginners to experts, we welcome everyone. Our experienced staff will ensure a safe and extraordinary adventure.
Time: 14:00 to 16:00 hrs. – Subject to seasonal and operational change.

2. Whale Shark Boat Trip
Take a swim at the South Ari Atoll Marine Park and you may have the chance to share the waters with the world’s largest living fish species, namely the non-violent Whale Sharks. They are more like whales than sharks and swimming with these gentle giants is a must-do. They are easily recognisable by their immense size and patterns of light spots and lines on their dark brown dorsal surface.
Passive interaction is the best policy when snorkelling with whale sharks.
Time: 08:30 to 12:30 (Half day) – Subject to seasonal and operational change.

3. Sunset Cruise
Sail through the surrounding waters on a traditional Maldivian Dhoni and enjoy the astonishing beauty of the Maldivian sunsets. Idyllic way to end the day and unwind while enjoying chilled champagne and canapés. This experience sets the scene for a perfect evening.
Time: 17:00 to 18:30 – Subject to seasonal and operational change.

4. Local Island Exploration
The half-day island discovery takes you on a Dhoni cruise to a nearby inhabited island where you will visit a typical Maldivian village and have a glimpse of the lifestyle of the local population which has remained almost unchanged for hundreds of years. The islanders are very hospitable and will welcome visitors with open arms, presenting their way of life proudly. See traditional houses made from coral and shells, visit the mosque, cultural centre and shop for island handicrafts and souvenirs
Time: 09:30 to 12:30 (Half day trip, available three times per week) – Subject to seasonal and operational change.

5. Sunset Fishing
The ocean surrounding the resort and its reef abounds with fish, presents a unique and unforgettable opportunity for the anglers amongst you. The adventure commences at 17:30 hrs. When the Dhoni sails for a favourable fishing ground chosen by the knowledgeable captain.
Using local methods, cast out your line and hooks and see what bites! Relax on the deck of the Dhoni as sun sets over the reef and savour the activities of marine life at night. This is an experience not to be missed.

Let our chefs at our Reef restaurant prepare your catch in the way you want it. *
