date_range 5 Nights / 6 Days
Day 1: Arrive at Maldives
Welcome To Maldives! By road reach to The Beach Residence by UI Hotel.
UI Hotels offers contented accommodation, friendly service, local cuisine & wide range of Excursions under one roof. We are located in Hulhumale Island which is only 5.5km from airport by a connecting road.
Hulhumale is a local island which offers you a flavour of the Maldivian Lifestyle. Enjoy the Dinner at the Bombay Darbaar, Hulhumale which is a favourite amongst the locals too
most Maldivian people do understand Hindi and speak a bit of it too - They are open to interactions and pride in the local island life and it's fragile enviroment.
Day 2: Picnic Lunch at Virgin Island with Snorkeling and Lucky Dolphin Sunset Tour in Traditional Dhoni
After breakfast today we head for a Picnic Lunch at the Virgin Island (Sand Bank) in a traditional Dhoni - A fisherman's boat
We combine the excellent snorkeling points with time on an isolated sandbank, before finishing the trip with a sunset on the boat in search of dolphins.
We head south to a beautiful sandbank set in a blue lagoon approximately 40 minutes from the capital. Relax on the sands under the shade of a sun umbrella, swim in the warm waters or snorkel the house reef. An ideal location to learn to snorkel with your guide or refresh your skills.
Leaving the sandbank visit one of the best snorkeling points close to Male. 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.
As the sun begins to set turning the sky to a blaze of colour, your boat captain will head to the east of Hulhumale to a channel where there is a high probability of encountering dolphins. As marine creatures in their natural habitat there is never a guarentee of sightings but when we are lucky watch them jump and perform!
