Day 1
On arrival at the International airport at Male you will be transferred to your dhoni. Our dhonis are all equipped with private cabins and a sun deck. You will be introduced to the crew before cruising to the uninhabited island of Rihiveli Boduveli or to a resort island. Our chef will show off his skills with a buffet lunch aboard. We have the rest of the day to spend swimming and snorkeling before anchoring for the night. It is a wonderful spot for your first lesson in snorkeling the beautiful coral reefs of the Maldives! (Beach towels, snorkel and flippers are all provided on board.)
Day 2
On the Maldives Dhoni Cruise there's only one thing to do, relax and enjoy! After breakfast we cruise to the nearby atoll and the village of Fulidhoo. Fulidhoo Atoll is still quite untouched and its main industry is fishing. Our cruising time will be 4 to 5 hours. We spend the day in the village, meeting the local people and observing their lifestyle before returning to our dhoni for an evening at the lagoon.
Day 3
We have plenty of time to relax today as we cruise to the beautiful uninhabited island of Bodumohoraa. At the beach, you can go skin-diving, snorkeling or swimming. Our crew will organise a beach barbeque where we can enjoy a feast of local seafood. We spend the night at anchor and you may choose to sleep up on deck beneath a blanket of stars.
Day 4
Today we cruise to the picturesque inhabited island of either Fulidhoo or Keyodu. Here we will meet the islanders, explore the local towns and have some time for local entertainment in the evening. We return to the dhoni in the evening.
Day 5
We leisurely cruise back to Male Atoll and anchor at a nearby resort island for our final night.
Day 6
Waking up on the dhoni, we have breakfast before being transferred to the airport.
