Slip on your snorkel mask and fins and jump into the aquamarine warm waters of the Indian Ocean. You’ll discover colourful corals, turtles, reef sharks, and stingrays… oh my! Then sit back and relax on a sandbank and enjoy a traditional Maldivian afternoon tea.

Your Maldives snorkel tour will begin with a safety briefing at the jetty before we board the speedboat that will take us out onto the water. (Life jackets will be available onboard).       

We’ll leave Hulhumale lagoon behind and head to our first stop, a coral reef where just two metres below the surface there, 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, as well as talk you through the key points for using snorkel equipment, remaining calm in the water, and protecting marine life. You’ll also get a mini marine life lesson, so that you can put names to many of the colourful fish you’ll see.

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, or just relax on the beach. We’ll enjoy a traditional Maldivian tea accompanied with fresh coconut, and get the chance to chat with our boat crew. We’ll snack on bite-size sweet and savoury delights — the savoury ones filled with vegetables, tuna, egg, and chili, the sweet ones with coconut, banana, or sponge cake.

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 Malé or a taxi to your Hulhumale guesthouse.

If you are NOT staying in MALE or HULHUMALE, please note that you will need to arrange a return transfer to Male at your own expense; depending on your location, this could be by speedboat, domestic flight or seaplane. For guests staying on private resort islands we'd highly recommend asking the hotel concierge to advise you on the best mode of transport and the costs involved.
