After breakfast, you will go to enjoy a Snorkeling safari. During a snorkeling safari, you’ll have the chance to visit three snorkeling sites, each offering unique experiences. These sites are carefully selected to showcase the rich biodiversity of the Maldivian reefs, including colorful coral formations, exotic schools of fishes, reef sharks, rays, turtles, and other fascinating marine creatures. View nurse sharks and stingrays at night just outside of the hotel (FREE of course).

Day 3

Today, you visit a stunning Sandbank and picnic island near Rasdhoo. Once you arrive, you’ll step onto the soft, powdery sand and be greeted by a stunning expanse of pristine beauty. The sandbanks offer ample space to unwind, bask in the sun, and take in the breathtaking surroundings. The crystal-clear waters are perfect for swimming, snorkeling, and observing the vibrant marine life that thrives in the Maldivian waters. There are 3 sandbanks and one uninhabited island you can reach just by walking.

Day 5

Ready to swim with mantas? When participating in a manta ray activity, you’ll have the opportunity to observe these fascinating creatures up close as they glide effortlessly through the water. Manta rays are known for their graceful acrobatics, performing somersaults and barrel rolls as they filter-feed on plankton.

Day 6

Indulge in the beauty of Ukulhas beach, take a refreshing dip in the house reef, and embark on an exciting Maldivian-style night fishing experience. Join the locals in this age-old tradition of using hand lines and raw fish as bait. It’s a captivating adventure that appeals to curious travelers seeking to immerse themselves in the local culture. Make it a delightful family outing and create lasting memories, all while having the chance to savor some delicious fresh fish for dinner.
