Take the plunge

One of the world's most magical destinations nestled by turquoise waters and boasting an abundance of sunshine throughout the year; the Maldives is an idyllic setting for adrenalin-fueled water sports. Whether you seek an adventurous experience of a lifetime or simply want to enjoy a few hours of relaxation in one of our tranquil lagoons; our water sports center has something for everyone.


Discover the beauty of the Maldives underwater world on a snorkelling adventure. Explore the crystal clear turquoise waters and colourful coral reefs that surround the island. Our dive center will provide all equipment, including masks and fins to take with you as you discover tropical fish, colorful corals, and majestic manta rays.

Stand up paddleboarding

Immerse yourself in the tranquil activity of Stand up paddle boarding which you can enjoy solo or with friends and family in the calm lagoon. You’ll spend a few peaceful hours spotting tropical sea life while working on your core strength and fitness.


Canoeing is perfect for those seeking a fun, low impact activity. Choose between our single or double canoes and spend some time exploring the island’s blue lagoons, white sandy beaches, and hidden coves.


With tranquil lagoons and a moderate breeze throughout the year, the Maldives is the perfect place to windsurf. Our instructors will introduce you to the basics and suggest some of the best places to explore.

Dinghy sailing

These small, wind-powered boats are ideal for exploring the warm turquoise waters. Our instructors will teach you the basics of sailing before you embark on a fun-filled adventure on the ocean waves.

Catamaran sailing

With more room to relax, our catamaran sailboats are perfect for venturing further out to sea. You can unwind on the spacious decks, travel at higher speeds, and anchor in shallow lagoons or near the shoreline.

Trimaran sailing

Trimarans are faster and more comfortable than any other sailboats and will enable you to explore the Indian Ocean in luxury. Between the main hull and two side floaters is a net for you to lay back and relax on.


The Maldives is a surfer’s paradise. Whether you’re a beginner or experienced surfer, with beautiful azure waters, white sandy beaches, and plenty of swell in the surf season, there’s nowhere better to catch some waves.


Bodyboarding is perfect for all ages and abilities, and is one of our most popular water sports for families. The great thing about bodyboarding is that it can be enjoyed in all conditions and requires less skill than surfing.


With a water-propelled jet pack, you will be able to go as high as 10 meters in the air and perform graceful turns. No experience is necessary - all you need is good balance and a sense of adventure.


These underwater scooters are perfect for exploring the underwater world that surrounds the island. Swim through colorful reefs, get up close to a range of fish, and keep an eye out for manta rays.

Fun tube

This high speed water sport is just the thing for families and thrill seekers. Simply hold on tight as the boat pulls your inflatable tube through the turquoise waters in the bay. Expect big splashes and lots of fun.

Water ski

This exhilarating, high speed water sport provides a great workout for the entire body. Our instructors will ensure you are challenged, whatever your ability. Plus, it’s a great way to see more of the beautiful bay.


Wakeboarding is suitable for all abilities and is great for thrill seekers. As our speed boat pulls you around the bay at high speed, your board will be lifted into the air and you’ll be able to perform a range of tricks.


Similarly to wakeboarding, you’ll be towed around the water by a motorboat. It requires less balance than wakeboarding, so is more suited to beginners, but is still an exciting way to explore the azure Maldivian waters.


Parasailing has become one of our most popular water sports. It combines the thrills of acceleration and altitude with stunning views of the atolls. Sit back, relax and enjoy your flight - no training required.

Speed boat tours

Explore the nearby Atolls with one of our exhilarating speed boat tours. Our team will take you to deserted private islands, hidden sandy coves, and beautiful blue lagoons where you can enjoy plenty of snorkeling.

SUP ski

Similarly to water skiing, SUP ski is an exhilarating way to explore the bay. With a stand up paddle board as your base instead of traditional water skis, it is perfect for beginners who require a little more stability on the water.
