Top Water Sports in Maldives – Tropical Archipelago of Fun

Predominantly made up of the Ocean, sunny Maldives is well known and loved for its splendid range of water sports. Swim, dive, snorkel or go island hopping, looking forward to chilling out on the beach.


Diving in the Maldives

Diving is one of the premier attractions in the Maldives. The archipelago is well known for its excellent range of dive locations; which is why any Maldives resort worth staying at, is well equipped with a state of the art dive centre and well qualified instructors. Even novice divers will be able to enjoy the splendours of the ocean since training and PADI certificates are available for visitors as young as 10 years old.

The Indian Ocean around the islands is teeming with all manner of marine life. The waters too offers excellent visibility – with some places boasting clear views of up to 50 metres. Look forward to sighting the elusive whale shark, huge manta rays, squirrel fish, tuna, giant barracuda and heaps of colourful coral fish. Dive amongst the gorgeous coral beds, explore underwater caves and even try your hand at swimming through the Maldives wreck.


Snorkelling in the Maldives

Snorkelling is an activity that can be enjoyed by the whole family. Simply set off from the beach of any resort you are staying at and swim to the nearest coral reef. Again the excellent visibility makes this a popular sport in the Maldives. You also have the option of booking a snorkelling or diving tour, which will take you to the best isolated island for snorkelling in hidden bays and amongst untouched coral beds. Enjoy snorkelling tours which include picnics on the beach, exploring uninhabited islands and swimming in secluded waters - with the promise of a fabulous meal awaiting you at the luxury Maldives resort of your choice. The Holiday Inn Resort Kandooma Maldives is one resorts located on the archipelago.


Windsurfing in the Maldives

If you choose a resort with a fine sports centre you will soon be sailing across the ocean. Expert instructors have even first timers enjoying the feel of flying across the sea. There is nothing more exhilarating and enjoyable than taking a windsurfing tour across the Indian Ocean.


Catamaran Tours in the Maldives

Catamaran safari tours are available to tourists who love to set off into the horizon in search of tranquil destinations. Your captain will take you to an isolated sand bank or deserted island where you can swim, dive and snorkel to your hearts content. Enjoy a day of privacy as you bask under sunny skies and revel in the tropical surroundings with just your loved ones.


Kayak Tours in the Maldives

Single or double kayaks are available for enjoying a leisurely scout of the surroundings. You can opt to paddle to the nearest islands or sail around the shore of your resort island. Transparent plastic kayaks are available for observing the underwater activities that take place below the waves while exploring mangrove forests and wildlife within the glistening lagoons is another lure. Kayaks are readily available on hire either at your Maldives beach hotel or nearest sports centre.
