Water Sports in Maldives – Excitement in the Waters for the Active Visitor

The lovely Maldives Islands are undoubtedly one of the world's foremost holiday destinations. In these islands, you will have the opportunity to indulge in a number of water sports, like those below.



Diving enthusiasts will be captivated by the outstanding undersea attractions they will encounter in the Maldives. Many visitors to the islands choose to go scuba diving in their waters, attracted by the splendid marine environment they can experience here. In the waters of the Maldives, you will encounter a host of channels that currents sweep through, where you will come across caverns, caves and overhangs containing soft corals, vibrantly coloured sponges, gorgonian fans and invertebrates. You will also find pinnacles which also act as magnets for sea creatures. At the dive sites of the Maldives, you will often come across creatures like parrotfish, Napoleon wrasse, jacks, sweetlips and snappers.


Banana Boat Rides

Taking a banana boat ride will be a water activity that almost any visitor to the Maldives will be able to enjoy. After donning your life jacket you will sit astride the inflated craft, often resembling a banana, and harness yourself if necessary. Then all that you need to do is hang on whilst the pilot of the motor boat towing the banana boat heads out into the waters. Typically the driver of the motor boat will take unexpected twists and turns, sometimes even throwing some of the riders into the gleaming waters. As you might expect this is a hilarious and exhilarating activity that is sure to appeal to the fun-loving visitor.


Jet Skiing

Jet skiing is an exciting and enjoyable water sport that will undoubtedly capture the imagination of the adrenaline seeker. What could be more enjoyable than directing your obedient water steed across the shimmering waters with the picturesque scenery around you and the sea breezes in your hair? Jet skiing is also a relatively easy water sport to learn, which many people can master more quickly than many other water activities. Before you know it you will be executing daring turns and swerves on the waters as you race along on your personal water craft. You will have the opportunity to hire a jet ski of your choice in the Maldives.



Windsurfing is another well-known water sport that you can enjoy in the Maldives. In these magical islands, you will be able to rent windsurfing equipment and head out into the waters to indulge in this exhilarating water activity. Despite the fact that this water sport may not be the easiest to learn, once mastered it will provide endless hours of rewarding satisfaction for the enthusiast. The lovely environs of the Maldives are sure to add to the pleasure of your windsurfing, as you will experience balmy tropical weather, warm waters and delightfully picturesque scenery in these islands. A choice of accommodation that you could consider from where you will be able to engage in windsurfing and other water sports would be Adaaran Club Rannalhi, an attractively located Maldives resort hotel.



Fishing enthusiasts will be in their element in the Maldives, as the waters of the islands offer a splendid selection of game fish that anyone would be proud to snare. If you head out into the open ocean waters on a big game fishing excursion, you will have the opportunity to catch premier game fish such as sailfish, tuna, dorado, wahoo, barracuda and many others. Another option that you can enjoy would be night fishing, where you will take to the waters after the fall of night, and engage in fishing under the shimmering starlit tropical skies.
