5 Best Water Sports Tours in the Maldives - Get Active!

There's no better place in the world to experience watersports than the sunny island of Maldives. Here are some of the best watersports you can enjoy during your time there.



The archipelago of Maldives has some of the best waves in the world. With 1192 atolls and a multitude of surf breaks the Maldives and surfing go hand in hand. The surfing season in the Maldives varies from one atoll to the other. In general, April to October is the peak season for surfing however March and November also have some great waves. Maldives surfing spots can be divided into three sections, Male atolls, Central atolls, and South atolls. The Male atoll is the most crowded of the three since it has the highest number of waves and the other two are more seasonal and reserved in welcoming surfers.



The Maldives is blessed with consistently moderate to strong winds that are nearly perfect for windsurfing. The best part about windsurfing in the Maldives is that even beginners have a chance to practice. Many of the best hotels in Maldives offer windsurfing opportunities for visitors. Experienced windsurfers can cruise across the aquamarine waters of the Indian Ocean where the breeze is just about perfect. If you are staying at the Adaaran Club Rannalhi then check with the staff for more info! May to October is the best time for windsurfing on the island.


Jet Skiing

Hop on a motorbike and head out to the Indian Ocean! Speeding across the waves of the Indian Ocean is a truly exhilarating experience. The sharp twists and turns of jet skiing make it more interesting. However, this may require a bit of navigation experience. If speeding is not in your blood then simply jet ski at your own pace. You can hire a Jet Ski motorbike from the centres located around the island. Unless you are an experienced skier, a guide will usually accompany you for the ride and life jackets will be provided.



Kayaking on the warm seas of Maldives is a great way to spend time in the water. You can paddle to the horizon where the sea ends and the sky begins on the warm waters of the Indian Ocean. The Maldives has the best tropical surrounding of a world-class kayaking environment. You can kayak to an offshore island to experience life there and along the way appreciate the small islands with coral reef and other oceanic beauties.



For a fresh perspective of the coastal landscape, you can try parasailing. This is a thrilling watersport, which is popular in Male. During parasailing, you are fastened to a harness that's attached to a parachute, which you will be carrying in the back. There is a long cord attached to the harness, which will be connected to a speedboat. You will actually be out of the water and once the boat reaches a certain speed, you are propelled into the air. This is one of the best water activities not only for a spectacular view but also a great way to capture some beautiful photographs. Riders get a bird's eye view of the ocean and the surrounding islands of Maldives.
