Male, Gan

The Maldives is rightly known as a tropical paradise and attracts sun worshippers and luxury resort lovers from around the world. However, the Maldives is also fast becoming a great destination for thrill-seeking adventure and water based activities. These include incredible snorkelling and scuba diving, great surfing and windsurfing, sea kayaking safaris and much, much more.

Our Maldives Active Adventure tour takes you by sea plane from the cosmopolitan capital of Male to the local island of Gan and the surrounding atolls and islands in search of water bound adventures. Lammu atoll was also used as the location for the planet Scarif in the recent Star Wars Rogue One film. Activities included are snorkelling and scuba diving, whether that be an introductory dive or certified dive; a kayaking safari stopping at picturesque sandbars and deserted islands; exploring a local island for a up close look at the local culture; a try at either windsurfing, surfing or sailing. There's also plenty of free time to add in more of the activities that you enjoy the most, as well as picnics and beach barbecues.
