4-Night Maldives Guided Local Experience from Male Airport

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    DAY ONE (Meals: D)
    Arrive at Male International Airport where you will be greeted by your guide who will assist you with your speedboat transfer to your local island in South Male Atoll. The ferry operates every day, excluding Friday, and takes 90 minutes to journey across the Indian Ocean to Maafushi. You can choose to sit up top and view the beauty of the many Maldives islands as you pass, keeping your eyes open for dolphins, or sit inside and chat with the locals.                
    Upon arrival at your guesthouse you will have time to settle in before exploring the island with your local guide to acquaint yourself with the layout and observe Maldives local life. Experience traditional afternoon tea known as ‘hedika’ and Maldivian savory and sweet snacks served with black tea at a local cafe. Dinner will be served at your guesthouse.
    DAY TWO (Meals: B, D)
    Breakfast this morning is served at your guesthouse before being taken out by boat to enjoy a 90-minute guided snorkeling trip to nearby reefs to discover the underwater world of the Maldives. The afternoon is yours to relax, or for those feeling a little more energetic, take advantage of the many water sport options available including surfing and diving. Enjoy a local dinner with the option of joining a local family in their home, allowing you to truly access Maldives life.
    DAY 3 (Meals: B, L,D)
    Following breakfast you have a free morning before being taken by speedboat to an idyllic sandbank just a short distance from Maafushi. Here you have the opportunity to swim, snorkel or just lie back and relax. A picnic lunch will be served before you head off to snorkel. The soft corals available on this reef usually mean its lunchtime all the time for turtles! On your return journey to Maafushi cruise the Indian Ocean and possibly spot dolphins. Subject to weather conditions your dinner will be served alfresco.
    DAY FOUR (Meals: B )
    Today is yours to enjoy as you please. Relax on the beach or participate in the various optional water sport activities offered. Optional diving trips can be organized for certified divers and day visits to resorts are also available. All optional activities can be arranged prior to or during your stay.
    DAY FIVE (Meals: B)
    Following an early breakfast you will transfer on the early morning public ferry to Male. Accompanied by a local guide you will discover the history of the capital city and visit places including The Friday Mosque, The National Museum (entrance fee not included) and Sultan Park.                          
    The remainder of your day is free to explore Male, enjoy lunch, buy souvenirs, or just watch the world go by from a local coffee house. Your small-group tour concludes with transfer to Male International Airport.
