Sports & Excursions
The resorts in the Maldives offer a wide variety of watersports. All resorts offer diving and snorkelling. Some have professional windsurf schools with qualified instructors offering multi-lingual certified courses, while others provide the basics needed for the windsurf enthusiast. Windsurf schools or watersports centres in the resorts are often equipped with one or more catamarans and a few kayaks or canoes.
There are some resorts that offer only non-motorised watersports as a rule, to avoid disturbing the peace.
However many of the resorts offer you the chance of testing your skills to the limits, at water-skiing, jet skiing, parasailing, body surfing, knee boarding and fun with banana riding and ringo riding.
Further, many provide romantic sunset sailing or adventurous excursions and island hopping, in catamarans or small "dhonis" which are traditional Maldivian vessels.
