Sun Island Resort & Spa
Get onboard one of our vessels, accompanied by our expert guide, and experience one of our fishing or boating excursions. In Maldivian-style, try a sunrise fishing trip on a traditional Maldivian dhoni. Experience dolphin watching, with the backdrop of sunrise or sunset, as you savour the sense of freedom on the open sea. Take a boat out into the sea on a snorkeling excursion and let the manta rays and turtles swim with you. Or gently cruise the ocean and experience the thrill of a whale shark sighting. Visit nearby islands, interact with the locals and learn about their way of life. Savour serenity and peace at Tholufushi, your own a private island. It’s all yours to spend a day or enjoy a romantic dinner.
Whale shark trip
Whale sharks can grow up to 18 meters in length and feed on plankton. They are completely harmless to us and peacefully cruise along the stretch of outside reef. There are very few places where whale sharks can be found consistently and one of them is the southernmost outside reef of our atoll. Are you ready to schedule a meeting of lifetime with one of them?
Have you ever wondered how the locals live in the Maldives? Begin your exciting adventure by visiting a local island, giving you a feel of the true Maldivian way of life. You can familiarize yourself with locals, see various points of interest on the island and find great hand-crafted souvenirs. Thereafter, you will travel to an uninhabited island, where you can snorkel to your heart's content and recharge yourself with a splendid barbecue lunch.
Ready to make new friends with various fishes and other marine animals? A 30-minute boat ride will take you to a fascinating coral garden. Meet various types of schooling reef fish, turtles and even sharks if you are lucky enough. Reef sharks are perfectly safe - leave your worries behind and enjoy the show.
Follow the dolphins
Watch these beautiful mammals greet you early in the morning. This excursion is one of the most popular amongst our guests. While the sun plays hide and seek on the distant horizon, our experienced crew will take you to the right location where you can feast your eyes and capture amazing photos as the dolphins glide alongside.
