Snorkeling – general

The The Maldives is famous for its underwater beauty with pristine corals, colorful reef fish and impressive pelagic creatures. Maafushivaru is fortunate to be located just a few minutes away from the some of the best diving and snorkeling sites of South Ari Atoll. We offer daily trips to a selection of great snorkeling sites, subject to weather and sea conditions. The trips are guided by our marine biologist who can help make this a most rewarding experience. Nevertheless, sightings of specific marine life species such as turtles, mantas or whale sharks always requires an element of luck so please understand that there is never a guarantee that these animals will turn up at any given hour or day!

To find out which snorkeling trips are available during your stay or to book, please contact the reception. Please book your desired trip at least one day in advance by 18.00 hrs. For further information please contact our Marine Biologist or GRO at the reception.
