Top Activities in Maldives for Thrill Seekers – An Exhilarating & Exciting Holiday Awaits

As a nation of over 1000 coral islands, the Maldives offers one plenty of action and things to enjoy. Constantly striving to provide visitors with the most amazing experiences, this is where the latest trends in water sports are to be found along with other fabulous activities.


Enjoy Catamaran Tours

Catamaran sailing is offered at just about all luxury resorts on the archipelago including Milaidhoo Maldives. As guests will realise, these excursions provide a fun and captivating way to experience the beauty of this tropical paradise. A mini catamaran is generally about 5 metres long and can be taken out solo if you are an expert sailor or with someone from the sports centre of your Maldives resort. Either way, these are marvellous adventures to experience over the Indian Ocean.


Fishing is Loads of Fun

One of the most popular water sports in Maldives, fishing can be organised from your resort. There are strict rules for fishing in the country; hence, one must set off with the aid of a tour operator. These expert instructors are quite adept at the art of fishing and manage to turn novice fishermen into expert anglers in not time. Some of the resorts offer boats specially fitted up for big game fishing and are really very thrilling to take on, especially since the ocean around the archipelago are teeming with all manner of fish.


Try a Spot of Free Diving and Fun Tube Rides

Freediving is also called skin diving and is an extreme sport which does not require specialised equipment. The art of a free dive relies mainly on the diver's ability to hold his breath for long durations without the aid of any breathing apparatus. Expert divers are known to dive as deep as scuba divers, and free diving is considered extremely freeing due to the lack of cumbersome equipment. The lagoons surrounding your Maldives resorts are ideal places to start practising holding your breath for free diving, although one should not attempt to this dive without the aid of an expert. For a more 'laid-back' activity, thrill seekers will love banana, ringo and tube boat rides; there is nothing more exhilarating than being whizzed across the lagoon on a tube via a speedboat.


Jet Skiing and Kayaking Are Very Rewarding

Jet skis are the motorbikes of the ocean, roaring across the waves in similar fashion. You can either ride on the back of a jet ski holding on to the driver, or take over the controls and enjoy the adrenaline rush as you rev up and speed across the ocean's surface. Kayaking is also very rewarding and ideal to explore a beautiful coastline. You can take on a solo tour or join a group, while tandem kayaks help you enjoy a paddle together. There is also a see-through kayak which is ideal for seeing what goes on below.


Try an Underwater Scooter Ride

An underwater scooter ride is ideal if you want to enjoy the thrills of a scuba dive without the cumbersome equipment. The scooter is equipped with its own breathing apparatus and is ideal for non-swimmers as well as non-divers, the scooter travels at a depth of 5 metres, keeping to a speed 2kmph.
