Know More about this tourYour Maldives snorkel tour will begin with a safety briefing at the jetty before we board the speedboat that will take us out onto the water. (Life jackets will be available onboard).
Well leave Hulhumale lagoon behind and head to our first stop, a coral reef where just two metres below the surface there, youll find young and delicate hard coral, as well as a multitude of reef fish. Your guide will give you tips on how to snorkel without causing damage to the coral, as well as talk you through the key points for using snorkel equipment, remaining calm in the water, and protecting marine life. Youll also get a mini marine life lesson, so that you can put names to many of the colourful fish youll see.
From there, well travel to Kandu Oiy Giri island, where, just beyond the harbour wall, we might spy the many stingrays and moray eels that come to feast on the fish scraps thrown back into the water by the local tuna fish processing plant.
Afterward, well head to a sandbank where you can swim and snorkel some more, or just relax on the beach. Well enjoy a traditional Maldivian tea accompanied with fresh coconut, and get the chance to chat with our boat crew. Well snack on bite-size sweet and savoury delights the savoury ones filled with vegetables, tuna, egg, and chili, the sweet ones with coconut, banana, or sponge cake.
As the afternoon comes to a close, your Maldives tour will take you back to Hulhumale, where you will be able to catch a ferry to return to Mal or a taxi to your Hulhumale guesthouse.
