The Maldives is a Muslim country and care needs to be taken in relation to the dress code on local islands. Whilst it is acceptable for men to wear T-Shirts and shorts or swim shorts; females should avoid causing offense by maintaining a more conservative approach to clothes by wearing T-Shirts, loose shorts or sarongs. Whilst the islands we visit are more tolerant of guests wearing traditional beachwear, females should avoid wearing bikinis and swimwear unless on an uninhabited island, picnic island, sandbank, screened off tourist beach, dive boat or resort island

We do provide snorkeling equipment on all our tours but please feel free to bring along your own mask and snorkel. Not only will you be assured your mask fits your face properly and is comfortable and less likely to have leakage, it will also lower any health associated risks. We find that peace of mind goes a long way.

Tour is not suitable if you are staying on a private island resort.

    Es un sitio donde pasar la última noche ya que queda muy cerca del aeropuerto. Lo ideal es buscar un hotel con transfer. La playa está muy sucia. No es un sitio donde pasar demasiadas horas.

    Enjoyed visiting two local islands. It was interesting to see where the locals live and their livelihood. The pleasant surprise was seeing dolphins- so many! The crew was very nice. They circled around the dolphins to let me have a good view and take better photos and videos. The guides were very friendly and helpful. They tried very hard to get me the best lunch.

    First and foremost, this is a MUST. Make sure you get UB as your guide, he is the man!!! My wife and I were in the Maldives on honeymoon and before we went to the resort, we wanted to see what the real Maldives and how real Maldivians live. UB was very knowledgeable about every and all things Maldives, so it was great learning from him. He also took us to a reef where (and I am not lying) we had the best snorkel experience. My wife and I have snorkeled many times before, but without a doubt Maldives was the best. The trip started out a little rocky because of the rain, but UB adjusted on the fly and made sure we got to do everything that was on the itinerary. Again, this is a must if you are visiting the Maldives and want more than just resort life.

    Guide came late. Failed to contact us that he was running late. Five minutes out of jetty boat ‘s engines gathered water and engine stalled; enough to wreck one’s day. Guide tried very hard to make up but clearly this service is appalling and must be improved.

    I did Mafushi and Gulhi . First we went to Mafushi and we walked around the island and my guide was very informative about the local life the plants the houses then we had a drink in a cafe then had local lunch then we moved to Gulhi and we had an idea about old ships building . Gulhi beach was soooooooo clean I had a chance to swim . in our way back we stopped at a nice spot fofr snorkeling this spot was the best the water colour and the marine life was great ( first time i see turtle ) . My guide was informative and took good care of me in snorkeling ( i am new in snorkeling ) The tour was well organised by secret paradise and it was great . Thank you everyone

    We had a lovely walking day trip to two islands. I have hip problems and had to do the trip in a wheelchair with my husband pushing me. Unfortunately the weather was a bit rough and we could not snorkel or swim. But it was really enjoyable and our guide was very good. Unfortunately we could not do the snorkeling trip because of the rough weather. The guides advised us against it. So it was a bit disappointing but a safer option. Thanks also for your very friendly service whilst we did the booking.

    We encountered this agency almost by chance and we used their services for 2 separate tours. All tour guides are extremely enthusiastic, friendly, competent and knowledgeable. The tours available are very varied and all extremely exciting including pick-up from main island. The use of local resources (local ferries, local taxis, local restaurants) is a nice touch and makes you feel the real Maldivian experience. One of the guides, Archie, made us an origami local boat (dhoni) using local leaves, extremely nice gesture that we will cherish for ever. Another guide, UB, qualified diver and international lifeguard, gave confidence to my partner to swim and snorkel in the ocean taking her by hand despite her fears of deep water. Even their youngest member, Anoof, during training, is extremely enthusiastic and helpful, able to give us some local hints and recommendations. Would use their services again next time we are back. Only recommendation: they accept only cash.

    We were welcomed by a very warm Farish, who is jovial and charming. Enjoyed the boat ride to Gulhi which has a spectacular beach. Farish was very attentive and answered all our incessant questions about local culture, food, history, marine life of Maldives. He knows his home well. It was my first time snorkelling and I couldn’t have asked for a better instructor, Farish was patient and calmed me. The blue waters of Maldives hold a lot of colourful secrets-fishes and corals. Definitely recommend this to anyone who wants a slice of Maldivian life, I learnt a lot.

    It was a lovely experience touring Maldives with Farish. He’s very charming and playful and entertained all our questions about the islands, local culture, history, marine animals. Gulhi, our first stop was absolutely stunning. The beach is pristine with cute corners everywhere. I snorkelled for the first time and couldn’t have asked for a better instructor. Farish was extremely patient and the fishes were a colourful delight to the eyes. The blue water is suddenly filled with so many colours as we look down. Definitely recommend this tour, they make you feel very homely.

    Ich kann diesen Ausflug sehr empfehlen. Nicht nur der normale Tourismus sondern auch das Leben der Malediven. Der Guide war super sympathisch und hat mir viele interessante Dinge gezeigt. Gerne wieder
