Our experienced guides will accompany you on a tour of two local islands sharing information on their culture and tradition. In-between islands we offer the opportunity to snorkel and discover the underwater world.
Cruising north we visit the islands of Himmurfushi and Huraa offering firsthand information about local island life. In Huraa gain insights into the simple life led by the villagers; visit a boat building yard and view the process of making Maldivian dry fish. Discover the mangrove swamps and freshwater lake and learn more about this fragile eco-system. At Himmurfushi take lunch at a local restaurant and visit souvenir shops where you may purchase local handicrafts and mementos.
In between island visits we offer snorkeling opportunities to discover the beauty of this underwater paradise. Sites vary, depending on weather and current conditions, but you can be guaranteed an abundance of colorful tropical fish and coral life.
Following a safety briefing on responsible snorkeling, put on your provided fins, mask, and snorkel and jump into the warm, azure waters of the Indian Ocean. Keep your eyes open for sea turtles, reef sharks, and rays the Maldives are home to; youngsters will want to be on the lookout for Nemo (aka clown fish).
Your snorkel guide will not only act as your ‘spotter’ to point out marine life that may not have caught your eye, but will assist less confident or inexperienced snorkelers, ensuring your equipment is comfortable and you feel safe in the water.
On route back to Hulhumale keep your eyes open for dolphins which can often be seen in the channel.
Your adventure awaits!
