You may have been on wildlife safaris before but you haven’t experienced the vibrant blessings of the earth until you see them under water: A new world, new beings, and so many colours that it could put a rainbow to shame. Our snorkeling safari includes visits to three amazing locations letting you catch a glimpse of a turtle, sting ray and an unbelievable variety of fish.
To get a glimpse of traditional Maldivian island life, take a boat ride to the neighbouring islands. They are a great place to pick up souvenirs of your trip to the Maldives too. Accompanied by a guide, the 30-minute boat trip will first take you to the local island of Muli, the capital of the Meemu Atoll, where inhabitants live in coral stone houses with clean sandy pathways to wander around.
A romantic dinner for two with your own private chef and butler who will prepare and serve your food right by your side with a bottle of bubbly to enhance your experience.
The Meemu Atoll is an undoubtedly great place for Dolphin Watching. Our resident experts will take you out racing through the ocean on a speedboat and right into the heart of action as schools of dolphins cut through the water, perform back-flips and more. This is one boat trip you don’t want to miss out on!
If you like to take long, calming trips across the ocean and meet some fascinating marine life while you’re at it, book a dhoni ride to go dolphin watching with us. Our traditional dhonis are large open boats that give you a great view of the ocean and sky that surround you as the dolphins frolic and pass you by.
SUN - SET FISHING
Head out on a traditional Maldivian dhoni and try your hand at fishing as the sun sets on the horizon. Our sunset fishing expedition is an experience for both the newcomer and the avid sports fisherman that you don’t want to miss. Red Snapper, Mullet and more can be yours for dinner, because our chef is ready to prepare it for you too!!
Our extensive water sports centre at Cinnamon Hakuraa Huraa Maldives is designed for those of you who love the constant action of the ocean that surrounds us. In fact there seem to be no end to marine ventures here as we offer catamaran rides, jet skiing, wind surfing, stand up and paddle, canoeing, kayaking and paddle boating. If the quiet of the island gets a little too much, belt up and head out for some exciting water action.
EARLY MORNING / SUNRISE FISHING
Fishing at sunrise is a breathtaking experience here on the Meemu Atoll. Head off in the wee hours in a traditional Dhoni and bring in Reef fish, Red Snapper, Mullet and Trevally,which our chefs will go on to cook for you once you return to shore.
There is a world beneath the water that only a diver knows is better in diversity and colour than the one we live on. Also, our Meemu Atoll has been known for its unusual reef formation and endemic marine life. Feel an adrenalin rush as a giant manta glides by, or encounter a whale shark on a hunt at night. For those of you who think otherwise, rest assured that they are harmless species going about their business as you dive into their waters. We organize two daily boat dive excursions at 9:00 am and 2:30pm that visit giris, thilas, channels, out reefs and drop-offs in the surrounding area. 2-tank dives, full day trips and night dives are all regular weekly activities. Should you wish to be certified as a diver, we also offer PADI open water courses at Dive & Sail.
BIG GAME FISHING BY SPEEDBOAT
