One of the World’s Leading Water Sports Hubs

  • Because of its marine location, the Maldives boasts every kind of water-based adventure sport from paddling around a lagoon in a transparent hulled canoe to being propelled several metres below the surface of the sea by underwater scooter, or gliding several metres above the surface dangling from a parachute behind a speedboat. For the energetic and adventurous, the Maldives is just as rewarding a destination as it is for the laidback sun worshipper or sophisticated epicure.
    With 99% of its territory being sea, the Maldives is one of the world’s leading water sports hubs with its environment of islands and turquoise blue waters forming the perfect combination for a natural water sports arena. All the resorts and the inhabited islands popular with tourists have a water sports centre of some kind, either with a fleet of windsurf boards, sails and other equipment, or just a couple of wakeboards.
    Not all the resorts favour motorised water sports like jet skiing because of the pollution and noise disturbance to the serenity of the resort. On the other hand, many resorts support water sports like canoeing and paddle surfing because of their minimal effect on the peaceful environment. Some of the popular thrills to be had from adventure water sports are listed here.
    Here are a few exciting activities:
    Canoeing & Catamaran Sailing
    Fishing & Fly boarding
    Free Diving & Fun Tube Riding
    Jet Skiing & Kayaking
    Kite Surfing & Knee boarding
    Parasailing & Surfing
    Wakeboarding & Water skiing
    Underwater Scooters
