What To Expect
Begin your afternoon adventure with a safety briefing at the jetty before boarding a speedboat that will take you out on to the waters. Life jackets are available on board.
Leave Hulhumale lagoon behind and head to your first stop, a coral reef where, just two metes below the surface, you'll find young and delicate hard coral, as well as a multitude of reef fish. Your guide will give you tips on how to snorkel without causing damage to the coral, as well as talk you through the key points for using snorkel equipment, remaining calm in the water, and protecting marine life. You'll also get a mini marine life lesson, so that you can put names to many of the colorful fish you'll see.
From there, travel to Kandu Oiy Giri Island where you might spot stingrays and moray eels that come to feast on the fish scraps thrown back into the water by the local tuna fish processing plant.
Afterward, head to a sandbank where you can swim and snorkel some more, or just relax on the beach. Enjoy a traditional Maldivian tea accompanied with fresh coconut, and get the chance to chat with the boat crew. Snack on bite-size sweet and savory delights - the savory ones filled with vegetables, tuna, egg, and chili, the sweet ones with coconut, banana or sponge cake.
Your Maldives tour will conclude with a transfer back to Hulhumale Ferry Terminal, where you will be able to catch a ferry to return to Male or a taxi to your Hulhumale guesthouse.
