Walk through the unique culture, grand sites and meet the very unique and simple life of islanders. Buy some souvenirs and carry the simple, but beautiful memory back to home! The biggest problem visiting these islands is that it is never easy leaving the island. The islands' beauty is breathtaking and it is tempting to spend more time than permitted. Respectable attire is required for visiting all inhabited islands. The tour will also take you to a selected hotel within this Atoll.

Morning fishing:- Takes you to the open waters ensuring further exploration of fish. Boat captain takes you to the different locations where you may enjoy good catch. The fishing industry did not realize the mechanized vessels until recently. The rowing and sailing boats have been used for centuries for fishing, ensuring that the daily catch was very much limited. However, nowadays the majority of fishermen around and a handful of others come in from distance for fishing in this area. This small amount of boat traffic is thankfully insufficient to spoil the good diversity of marine life. You will be provided BBQ out of your catch at the Coffee Shop Terrace.

Half-day fishing:- If you want to try real fishing, rest assured that this is the best trip to get started. Just keep in mind that there are several elements to the enjoyment of fishing, waterman ship and knowledge of underwater knowledge, physical condition and use of correct equipment. The best time to drop your hook to catch a bigger fish is early hours of the day when fishes come across the oceans looking for their food in a very hungry mood. Different types of Sharks Blue and Black Marlin, Southern Blue Fin Tuna, Skip Jack and Yellow Fin Tuna, Queensland Spanish Mackerel, Sail Fish, Wahoo and Barracuda are among most catch of the trip. That's not all! You also will be provided BBQ out of your catch, if you catch any.

Night fishing : Catch a fish before you loose the Sun! The boat captain will take you to a good location where he has experienced good catch. Night fishing is the easiest way of experiencing how to catch fish. Barracudas, Red and White Snappers, Small Tooth Grouper, Blue Fin Jack and Bulls Eyes are among the most catch. Your boat crew will provide you the fishing gear and therefore, you need not carry them with you. Call one of the crews, should you need any assistance on board. Enjoy the BBQ of your own catch! Even if you did not catch any fish, still the BBQ will be provided at 2200hrs on the Sundeck, if the weather permits. Otherwise inside the Coffee Shop.
