Maldive Dhoni Cruise MC

Visiting: Maldives
Trip Duration 8 Days

Maldives Adventure Cruise

On this holiday, we cruise among the remote atolls of the idyllic Maldives, aboard a traditional dhoni. We eat and sleep aboard the boat as we sail between the unspoilt palm-fringed tropical islands of South Male, Felidhoo and Meemu. Along our way, we visit small fishing village communities and stop to swim or snorkel at beautiful coral reefs.

Tour Highlights

  • Seven-day cruise - Relax on board a traditional dhoni boat, with all meals included and freshly prepared by the boat crew
  • Uninhabited islands and pristine beaches - Visit unspoilt, idyllic corners of the Maldives, far away from the tourist resorts
  • Remarkable snorkelling and swimming - Enjoy warm, clear water and spot manta rays, turtles and clown fish on spectacular reefs
  • Traditional fishing villages - Spend time with the local people to gain an appreciation of their life in this tropical paradise
  • Impressive barbeque banquet - Prepared by the boat crew on a sublime white-sand beach
