Maldives Sun and Snorkel
Slip on your snorkel mask and fins and jump into the aquamarine warm waters of the Indian Ocean.
Duration of tour: 3 hours
The tour will begin with a safety briefing at the jetty, before we board the speedboat .We’ll leave Hulhumale lagoon behind and head to our first stop, a coral reef where you’ll find young and delicate hard coral as well as a multitude of reef fish. Your guide will give you tips on how to snorkel without causing damage to the coral and protecting marine life. From there we’ll travel to Kandu Oiy Giri island, where just beyond the harbour wall we might spy the many stingrays and moray eels that come to feast on the fish scraps thrown back into the water by the local tuna fish processing plant. Afterward, we’ll head to a sandbank where you can swim and snorkel some more. We’ll enjoy a traditional Maldivian tea accompanied with fresh coconut. We’ll snack on bite-size sweet and savoury delights. As the afternoon comes to a close your Maldives tour will take you back to Hulhumale, where you will be able to catch a ferry to return to Male or a taxi to your Hulhumale guesthouse.
