Maldives, Where Water Activities Are Limitless
Imagine a country with 99 percent of it covered by water, and tiny islands spread throughout. Each island surrounded by white sandy beaches and gardens of coral. There is no complete description of the boundless beauties of the Maldivian islands and its vibrant and multicolored waters.
With dive spots and reefs scattered throughout the country, Maldives is the most ideal destination for all kinds of water sports. Maldives provides you with a playing ground for all water sports enthusiasts. While Maldives is ranked among the best recreational diving destinations, some of the other popular water sports include swimming, fishing, snorkeling, water-skiing, windsurfing, catamaran sailing, para-sailing, kayaking, kite-surfing, water-skiing and jet skiing.
The crystal clear waters and the lagoons of the Maldivian resorts are perfect for kayaking, while the warm sea breeze is perfect for windsurfing. Resorts that have their own waves or nearby wave surfing points offer it while livaboards can take you to some of the toughest surf points distributed throughout Maldives. The capital city Malé also has a wonderful surfing point where wave surfers often visit to enjoy the high waves.
Diving is the most popular water sport in Maldives followed by wind and wave surfing. All resorts offer guided water activities and courses in sports such as windsurfing and catamaran sailing. They also have excellent facilities for a variety of other water sports and activities with the best equipment.
Internationally certified Maldives diving schools separate from water sports centers in resorts offer the full range of classes and tours for beginners and experts. Highly experienced and fully certified instructors offer supervised lessons ranging from scuba diving to sailing, with internationally certified courses for beginners and experts.
Resorts from all over Maldives offer chartered fishing trips, and some resorts offer submarine trips. However liveaboards are the ultimate choice for diving, snorkeling and fishing enthusiasts. Liveaboards also grant you opportunities to wave surf and experience the waters of Maldives in a different perspective where you are never limited to one single location.
While additional charges will apply to some of the water sports and activities, some resorts may provide free services and usage of some facilities. A visit to this paradise can never be completed without dipping yourself in the crystal clear waters, and experiencing their luxuries and the underwater beauties, that sustain the small and peaceful islands of Maldives.
