Itinerary
Maldives Private Yacht Cruise
Day 1 - Arrive Male

Welcome to the Maldives!
Arrive anytime prior to 10:30 AM. You will be met by airport representatives who will transfer you to Male before going to the waterfront to meet our boat captain and crew. We will depart for South Male Atoll. The afternoon is yours to enjoy, relax on the beach, go for a swim, have a cocktail, or read a book. The Maldives offer some of the most amazing snorkelling and marine life viewing opportunities in the world. The shallow islands and amazing coral reefs make it a key feeding ground for many species of tropical fish. 70 different species of colourful coral reefs make up the flora of this underwater city, with more than 700 species of fish and other marine life taking the role of the fauna. Snorkelling is one of the simplest ways to experience this impressive world under the water.

Days 2 - 6 - Sailing the Maldives

Spend the next five days cruising around the South Malé and Felidhu atolls, disembarking to visit islands and sandbars along the way. On Fulidhu, mingle with locals and experience a traditional drumming performance. Bodu Moro Island is home to idyllic uninhabited beaches – the perfect photo opt.
Aboard the dhoni, spend free time as you please – lounge on the sundecks and take in the views, relax with a good book, or socialize with fellow travellers as you enjoy delicious local seafood. Off the boat, opt to swim and enjoy snorkelling about twice a day amongst the spectacular marine life of the Maldives. The shallow islands and amazing coral reefs make it a key feeding ground for many species of tropical fish. Keep an eye out for turtles, reef sharks, stingrays, and octopuses.
Cruise to the southernmost point of South Malé Atoll before crossing the channel into Felidhu Atoll. The main industry here is fishing and there is typically an opportunity to see traditional boat-building on at least one of the islands.
