5 Exciting Excursions in Maldives You Don’t Want to Miss – Enthralling Escapades for Intrepid Travellers

The Maldives is not just a destination for sublime relaxation and provides plenty of opportunities to enjoy fulfilling adventures too. So, gear up and get ready for a thrilling journey through the five must-not-miss excursions that will make your holiday here even more unforgettable.


Dolphin-Watching Cruises

Certain private resorts in Maldives will give you a chance to set sail on a traditional boat called a dhoni, for a captivating dolphin-watching excursion. This is a chance to witness these playful ocean denizens in their natural habitat which makes for a fantastic family activity that will provide plenty of memories to cherish as well. While there are several dolphin species found here, the most seen are spinner dolphins. If you are lucky, you may not only observe them swimming but also, leaping and frolicking in the waves which will be nothing short of spellbinding!


Big Game Fishing

For those who crave an exciting and rewarding challenge, big game fishing in Maldives is a dream come true. Set out on the open sea to try your luck at catching fish species such as marlin, wahoo, sailfish, giant trevally, barracuda, and tuna. The thrill of the chase and the strength of these ocean creatures will have you hooked. Whether you are a seasoned pro or a beginner, this destination offers an incredible deep-sea fishing experience that will have you ‘reeling’ with excitement!


Snorkelling & Diving

Surrounded by the Indian Ocean, this nation is renowned for its breathtaking underwater world, and there's no better way to explore it than through snorkelling and diving excursions. Look to stay at a private island resort such as Velassaru Maldives with a dive centre that offers training, certification, and trips to key sites. Soon, you will be transported to a kingdom in the sea full of vibrant coral and diverse marine life of all shapes, sizes, and colours. For something truly unique, consider night snorkelling or diving; the ocean takes on a magical aura after sunset, and you will encounter intriguing nocturnal creatures of the deep from slippery moray eels to ghostly crayfish!


Sunset / Night Fishing

Those in search of more cultural-related things to do in Maldives Island can look to experience the charm of traditional hand-line fishing on a sunset or night fishing excursion. As the sun sets over the horizon, you will embark on a dhoni with an experienced crew on hand, providing the ideal chance to connect with local fishing traditions. Whether under the spellbinding hues of twilight or the serene night sky, the waters promise an abundance of fish species; some resorts will even have your catch cooked for you for a truly satisfying and delectable end to the day!


Escape To a Sandbank 

For a more serene escape, you can hop aboard a dhoni to reach a secluded sandbank which offers the ultimate privacy. Here, you can soak up the sun in peace, go snorkelling in calm waters, and enjoy a luxury picnic hamper provided by your resort. The sandbank is a small, isolated piece of paradise where you can bask in solitude and take in the stunning natural beauty with your partner or loved ones. It's a tranquil retreat, where you can truly get away from it all amidst the soothing sights and songs of the sea.
