Maldives Dhoni Cruise

The Maldives - clear and translucent waters, coral reefs and white sand. What could be better than cruising on a dhoni to experience island hopping far from the crowds, learn about the local way of life and snorkel the spectacular reefs of the Indian Ocean. Our Captain after all is an expert local guide. The dhoni, resembles a traditional Arab sailing vessel, and is handcrafted locally from coconut palm timber. They have been converted into live-aboard cruise boats with couchette accommodation and a saloon area inside, plus plenty of room on deck for relaxing and watching the world go by. During the day there is ample time to swim and snorkel and every evening is spent moored off a different island - meeting the locals of small settlements or enjoying a fresh seafood barbecue on a pristine uninhabited beach.

Brief Itinerary

DAY 1 Join Male, transfer to dhoni
DAYS 2/5 Cruise the waters of the Maldives, passing numerous islands and atolls with opportunities to visit local fishing villages, swim, snorkel and relax
DAY 6 Return to Male, trip concludes

traveller reviews

Our trip to the Maldives was a dream. We had the chance to see so much and enjoy the best snorkelling in the world. The staff, food and
vessel were beyond expectation. I recommend this trip for the adventurers looking to take a break.
