Your 5 Go to Water Sports in the Maldives – For some fun in the sun

Adventure is by your side when a vacation in the Maldives is in the books! A voyage into this island nation will be nothing short of aquatic pleasure and fun in the sun for guests at the many resorts which offer luxuries beyond expectation. Water activities are an integral part of your Maldivian vacation and making the right choices is vital when listing down your daily agendas for the island getaway. Here are the top five water sports that may be the best choices to include in your checklist for a thrilling holiday.



Snorkelling is undoubtedly one of the most sought-after Maldives watersports. Therefore, be sure to sign up for your own adventure under the sea as you spend a much-needed island getaway at Saii Lagoon Maldives. Snorkelling is the best substitute if you have a fear of scuba diving, but fancies the underwater world, tropical fish and everything that the ocean has to offer. Almost all resorts in the Maldives provide snorkelling equipment for their guests, therefore, all you have to do is prepare yourself for an adventure in the depths of the ocean.


Sunset Cruises

Sunsets are an absolutely stunning view for those who appreciate the wonders of nature. While sunsets by the beach are an alluring sight, they can be better experienced while on a cruise. These cruises offer a ticket for uninterrupted views of the far horizon, breathtaking sunsets, and endless ocean. These panoramic views are often paired with a scrumptious presentation of canape food and wine for the voyagers to soak in the spirit of true island life.


Visiting the Dolphins

Fancy paying a visit to the dolphins? This popular Maldivian excursion is not one to miss and is guaranteed to be worth every minute or hour you spend at sea awaiting their arrival. While dolphin watching can be experienced throughout the year, December to March has been named the best time of the year for dolphin sightings. Discover over 20 species of dolphins ranging from spinner dolphins to spotted dolphins, rough-toothed dolphins, Risso's dolphins and striped dolphins, which are considered the most commonly spotted ones.



Explore the crystal blue ocean at your own pace. This popular water sport activity in the Maldives offers tourists the opportunity to explore the islands in their purest form, as the palm trees wave to the rhythm of the wind and the sandy beaches glow in the sunlight. Kayaking is also the ideal sport to burn down those extra calories gained during your stay at the resort, as it requires a considerable level of effort to paddle against the waves.


Glass Bottom Boat Rides

Kayaking your way across the ocean is not your thing? Fear not, as the ideal substitute exists! While a see-through kayak would still require paddle effort, glass-bottom boat rides offer you the comfort of sitting back while savouring the views around you. Take peeks at the vibrant marine life swimming under your feet through the glass panels, while the boat will be operated by a professional. Equipped with seats, all you need to do is sit back, relax and explore.
