We have something for everyone from an hour on the water or a full day away. Select from the list below.

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.

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…

For fishermen (and women!) go 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.

Another great sunset experience is to go fishing from a dhoni which will take you out to the reef as the sun sets. Hopefully you will catch your own fish for lunch the next day.

For a more private experience you can hire a dhoni for the day and explore the islands to your own schedule. Hop on and off as the mood takes you. Stop and snorkel whenever you want.


Snorkeling 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.
