Trip Info

Awake to the sun rising over the Indian Ocean. Snorkel areas that are famous throughout the world for their stunning beauty and abundance of marine life. Surf waves that will accommodate every level of experience. Visit unspoiled islands and sample the local way of life. At the end of your day relax on deck gazing at the millions of stars above you. A traditionally crafted and built luxury Turkish Gullet complete with sails perfectly fits a traveler’s notion of cruising. Watch the beautiful islands slide past on the horizon as you sip a chilled drink and tan on the broad deck, whilst the experienced crews navigate you through the beautiful reefs and channels of the Maldives. There is plenty of opportunity to relax as well as participate in snorkeling, swimming, surfing and diving. Discover Scuba Dive Courses available for non-certified divers.

    I contacted Ruth and Secret Paradise about 6 months before planned holidays. From the first email, I was sure that I was in good hands. Customer service is exceptional, we exchanged 50+ e-mails to discuss the details and itinerary of our chartered cruise. Ruth and her colleagues replied to every single question before our arrival to Maldives. Just few days before our trip, there were some problems with the boat we hired and Ruth has upgraded us to a bigger one free-of-charge. Food was delicious and everyday snorkelling just amazing! The crew was very friendly, same as Kamey, our guide who stayed with us during entire trip. Kamey showed us incredible reefs and was a great travel companion, explaining the history and current situation of Maldives. We have experienced some some problems with fresh water on boat and also with entrance to some islands but everything was fixed or an alternative was provided very quickly. We also received a gift from Ruth- a night on a picnic island just for us and totally free-of-charge! Ruth joined us for dinner there and to say hello! Wojtek via Trip Advisor Traveled April 2015

    We thoroughly enjoyed the week on board and were impressed with the standard and quality of the food produced from such a small space! The size of the cabins were larger than anticipated and the professionalism of the captain and friendliness of all the crew was hard to beat. It is hard to pick out a single highlight but the snorkeling rated very high! Thanks to all involved. Ryan Traveled January 2015
