5 Exciting Water Sporting Adventures to Try Out in the Maldives – Land of Eternal Surf

The Maldives is an archipelago of over a 1,000 islands, a nation ruled by sun, sand & surf; hence, fun on the ocean is limitless. Here are some of the most popular water sports well worth trying.


Catamaran Sailing is Remarkable

Catamaran sailing is one of the most relaxing experiences to savour in the Maldives. You can join a group tour or hire one for a personal trip. Do the latter if you are an accomplished sailor. Sailing into the distant horizon will reward you with sights of marine life swimming close to the surface, lazy turtles and friendly dolphins often gather around the crafts, while a quick swim in the warm waters of the Indian Ocean is hard to resist. Sail around the nearest islands, bask on sandy shores and enjoy some snorkelling around hidden bays. November to April is considered the best time for Catamaran sailing.


Enjoy Kayaking Tours

Nothing is more rewarding than a paddle across the crystal clear waters surrounding gorgeous Maldives island resorts. Kayaks can be hired from your Maldives hotel or resort. Some areas are exceedingly beautiful to explore by kayak, while the experience itself is quite relaxing and soothing with nothing but the sound of the waves, sights of marine life and verdant coasts to experience.


Enjoy the Rewards of Snorkelling

Guests at Grand Park Kodhipparu, Maldives, or similar resorts, will find a snorkelling tour amongst the verdant coral beds to be very rewarding. A water sport that requires minimum skills and equipment, snorkelling can be enjoyed by the entire family. Simply use your swimming skills, slip on flippers and mask and swim out to the nearest reef. The waters surrounding the Maldives are extremely clear, boasting visibility up to 30 metres or more in most areas, hence, you can clearly view the colourful coral and marine life just below the waves.


Scuba Diving in the Maldives is Tops

The archipelago is home to some of the world's best scuba diving locations; places such as Banana Reef, Manta Point and Fish Head are popular across the globe. The experiences are varied from wreck diving to deep sea excursions amongst underwater caves, swim-throughs, coral covered walls, a host of marine life in all sizes and colours and much more. Best of all, scuba diving in the Maldives is not just for the professional; the enthusiastic novice diver, even as young as 10 years, can easily obtain a PADI diving certification and experience the wonders below the glistening waves of the Indian Ocean. You can join a live-aboard scuba diving tour, which over a course of a few days, sails to the best diving spots around the archipelago.


Cruising on the Ocean

This one is especially recommended for the romantic at heart. A cruise aboard a luxurious yacht or traditional dhoni is very rewarding. Take the sunset cruise and set-off into a blazing sky, sip cocktails or champagne as the sky turns a fierce orange with the promise of dining under a blanket of stars. Combine the sunset cruise with a bout of night fishing and enjoy a magical experience.
