For those who have always been mesmerised by the wonders that lurk beneath the surface of the ocean, diving is an enthralling activity that must be experienced. Since the underwater world of Maldives is replete with species of colourful fish and gorgeous coral reefs, divers are in for a treat!

Fly boarding

Fly boarding

Experience a unique water sport and opt for fly boarding, a relatively new exhilarating sport that is akin to water boarding. However, fly boarders can truly feel like they are airborne as the board is propelled high into the air. Not for the faint hearted, fly boarding will have you leaping for joy, just make sure that someone can capture these exhilarating moments on camera!

Parasailing

Parasailing

Somewhat similar to fly boarding, parasailing is ideal for those seeking an adrenaline rush. Feel the salty ocean air on your face as the wind catches your parachute and propels you high into the sky providing you with an enjoyable time as well as an amazing and panoramic view of the Maldivian islands from a unique vantage point.

Jet Skiing

Jet Skiing

Jet skiing can be as exciting as you want it to be or laid back if you so wish. Many hotels allow tourists to hire a jet ski along with an instructor for amateurs and those who do not quite feel up to the adventure, can ask their instructor to ride it while you sit back and enjoy the scenery as it whisks by.

Night Snorkelling

Night Snorkelling

As the moon rises, the underwater world changes and the once warm and friendly waters take on a foreboding hue. However, with a torch and a competent guide, snorkelling in the night can be quite rewarding! Enjoy the marine world in a different light and don't forget to surface once in a while to enjoy the glowing plankton that floats on the surface.

Night Fishing

Night Fishing

While fishing may not appear to be an exhilarating affair, in Maldives, nothing is as it seems. With one night of night fishing under your belt, you may review your opinion on fishing. Such expeditions often leave just as the sun sets thereby allowing tourists to enjoy the colourful event and then allows them to fish beneath a canvas of stars.

Waterskiing

Waterskiing

Experience the familiar sport of skiing on an unfamiliar terrain as a speed boat whisks you at high speed, along the azure blue waters of the Indian Ocean! While tourists can also opt to try wake boarding and mono skiing, many Maldives five star resorts offer their guests lessons to master a new skill.
