Day 1: Check-in
Boarding in the late morning in Hulhumale.The island, only 20 minutes away from Malé Airport by ferry, represents a special gateway for our cruise dedicated to the discovery of the enchanting archipelagos of the Maldives. In about half an hour, we will reach the Banana Reef, a spectacular dock just north of Malé: here you can snorkel and swim with mantas among colorful corals and transparent waters. After our lunchbreak, we will peacefully sail for about 3 hours to the north, passing through the Ari Atoll and reaching Kohdhipparu, where we will spend the night after a fantastic dinner on board.
After breakfast and a swim to explore the crystal clear waters and the white beach of Kohdhipparu, we set sail in the direction of Rasdhoo (4 hours). On this island you will be able to taste the local culture and have a refreshing tea or coffee in one of the many little cafes along the beach and near the harbor. In the lagoon, you can go snorkeling, take a walk on the beach and explore the little village before going back to the boat for the night.
We leave after breakfast from Rasdhoo, sailing for about 2 and half hours until we reach Genburugau, one of the best spots for snorkeling where we will stop for a dive, discovering its seabeds. Later on, we head for Dhigga, where we will stop for lunch and you can spend the afternoon swimming in the crystal clear waters and exploring the enchanting coral reef characterizing this island. Not far from Dhigga, we find the lagoon of Fesdhoo welcoming us in its calm waters, the perfect end to a wonderful day.
After a morning dive, we head for the lagoon of Moofushi and then to the near and uninhabited island of Enboodhoo. This little islet is a real pearl of the Maldives worth discovering, where you can swim and snorkel, walk along its super white beach and relax under the palm trees by the sea. We leave in the afternoon in the direction of Rahddhiggaa, an islet famous for its uncontaminated lagoon and its rich underwater life.
We lift anchor to sail peacefully to the southwest. We have the first break after 45 minutes, diving and discovering a wonderful coral reef populated by thousands of colorful fishes. Later on, we will reach the island of Theluveligaa where we will stop for lunch, enjoying the warm waters of this splendid atoll in total relax. In the afternoon, after a short sailing, we will arrive on the island of Dhangethi, which will welcome us with it picturesque cafes on the beach and the little local craft shops. Overnight stay on board.
This morning will be dedicated to a relaxing sailing across the archipelago of Ari, reaching its westernmost island: the enchanting Maamigili. Here we will spend the day exploring the coral reef and enjoying the verdant nature. With a bit of luck, you will be able to swim with the docile whale sharks, seeing them in their natural habitat. Dinner at anchor, under the magic starry sky of the Maldives.
We leave at dawn and dedicate the day to sailing. Direction south, lunch on the way, and relax on board before reaching the island of Rihiveli Huraa, where you can lay on the beach and swim with manta rays. A little over an hour and a half away, we will find the island of Guraidhoo that will enchant you with its waters of a thousand shades of blue and soft, white beaches from which we will admire the sunset before getting on board for dinner.
