Island Hoping : this is fun day out on a traditional Maldivian sailing boat -although this one is motorized to get to places fast. And dont forget to bring your snorkeling gear. The boat stops off at three places: Bodu Hura, Kuda Bandos and Kani Resort. At Bodu Hura you will have the opportunity to see a typical Maldivian fishing village and gain some idea of how the islanders live. There are also several souvenir shops so you can do some shopping while you're there. Kuda Bandos is an uninhabited island where there is some great snorkeling and a barbecue lunch is served. The final stop is Kani Resort where there are good facilities to enjoy before returning to Meeru.

Excursions : This full day excursion in the traditional Maldivian mode of sea transport will take you to the uninhabited island of Kagi at the north end of North Male Atoll. This is a small island with soft sandy beaches and a good house reef for snorkeling enthusiasts. A barbecue lunch will be served on the island. A two hour excursion to the nearby island of Dhiffushi, where the fishing village of 900 people make their living salting and drying fish in the sun. There are also several souvenir shops where you can buy gifts to take home with you.

Big game Fishing : The Maldives is the perfect place for a spot of fishing. After all the waters here are literally teeming with fish. Our morning fishing excursions take you trawling along the outer atoll, dragging a line on the surface for barracuda, wahoo and jack. Morning fishing is close to the reef, but in deep water. For night fishing we leave just before sunset and drop anchor near the reef. The relaxed fishing uses sinkers, and all you have to do is sit back and wait for the fish to bite. Big game fishing is another experience not to be missed. Using a rod, this is an exciting experience. Just wait and see who catches the biggest barracuda.
