Be Aware...

Some waves in the Maldives are private! You need a surfpass for them and can NOT book them, when you are already there.

Make sure your passport is valid long enough for your stay.

Not all islands have easy access to surf, so the transfer to the spots is important!

The Maldives are alcohol-free, since they are an islamic nation. However most boats, resorts and camps have a licence, so you can consume your beer or cocktails there.

Please inform yourself about the local laws and restrictions before your trip!

02

You can swim with sharks in the Maldives

Forget what you saw on TV. Experience the exhilaration of swimming with gigantic and majestic whale sharks along with smaller sized reef sharks lurking peacefully in the coral atolls and also on the surrounding lagoons of the resorts. Should you feel a little uneasy with such an up-close encounter you can also enjoy watching them arrive for daily feeding time at selected spots.

03

Water sports galore next to the surf

One thing is for sure, the surf is superb in North and South Male, however should you want to try other water sports, the choices are plenty. Kayaking, canoeing, snorkelling, sea bobbing, jet-skiing, and even X-Jet Blades are options! Of course, instructors are around to guide you should you need some assistance.

An assault in the best kind of sense, local food such as Maldivian Curry with Tuna and Garudhiya (A type of fish soup with lime, chili, rice, curry leaves, onions, and a coconut) will blow your taste buds away.
