With its pristine white beaches, clear waters, and numerous private resort islands, the Maldives is easily one of the most beautiful countries in the world. However, your holiday in the Maldives should not only involve lounging by the beach and sipping on cocktails. This archipelago has a rich history, culture, and natural beauty that you can explore, and one of the best ways to do that is on a guided tour. If you're looking for experiences to enrich your vacation, take a look at the famous Maldives tours below.
Discover Malé Tour
Being the nation's capital, Malé has everything you need for a vacation. It has multiple historical landmarks, shopping streets, and delicious local food. Why not take a guided tour of the capital and learn about the local history and culture? On the tour, you'll visit the Friday Mosque, National Museum, President's House, National Park, local markets, and other major landmarks. You'll also have time for shopping, so take a look at local Maldivian produce such as local spices, fruits, and fish.
Scuba Diving Tour
Scuba diving is a major attraction here, and there are Maldives diving tour packages for divers of all skill levels. You can join a single-day beginner's diving tour or even go on a weeklong advanced diving expedition with an experienced team. Of course, all the equipment you need for a successful dive will be provided. Some of the best diving spots you can explore include the Baa Atoll, South Malé Atoll, and more.
Snorkel with Colourful Marine Life
If you're not ready to go scuba diving, you can opt to join a snorkelling tour. There are great snorkelling spots all across the archipelago where you can see colourful fishes and thriving coral reefs. And the best thing is, you can bring your kids along if they can swim. At Club Med Kani and Finolhu Villas, you can snorkel just off our coast and be back in time for lunch. We can also take you to more locations where there is even more marine life to see.
Go Big Game Fishing
If you want to get your hands dirty on your Maldives holiday, why not go on a big game fishing trip. You'll join experienced local fishermen and learn how to catch the best of what the Indian Ocean has to offer. Whether you're a beginner or skilled angler, you'll no doubt have a thrilling time at netting your own tuna, barracuda, and other fishes. If you stay at Club Med, you can even take your catch back to the resort and have us cook it especially for you.
Sunset Cruise with Dolphins
A great way to enjoy some time out on the ocean without getting wet is to go on a sunset cruise. This boat tour will take you out to the middle of the ocean where you can watch the sunset and relax with a drink in hand. Dolphins are aplenty in these waters, so you'll also have their company. Being social creatures, they do like to come up to boats and show off by jumping out of the water!
Underwater Submarine Tour
One of the more unique tour packages in the Maldives is the underwater submarine tour. You can get up close to coral reefs and other marine animals, even manta rays. The best thing is, you'll stay perfectly dry and can continue on your next tour right away. This tour is great for families with young kids as it's safe and there's even a guide on board the sub to explain about the local marine ecosystem.
