Explore the resort’s stunning house reef from the comfort of a semi-submarine. The first of it's kind in the Maldives, the service will take you on a journey to explore the resort’s marine eco-system. The upper body of the vessel remains above the sea surface at all times while the bottom section is 1.3 metres below the water. The large windows of the underwater hull allow you to enjoy spectacular views of the underwater ecosystem, creating the illusion of a real submarine dive.
The semi-submersible vessel takes excursions along the resort’s house reef several times a day and a night-excursion is available to explore the unique night-time wonders around Jumeirah Vittaveli. During the day, guests can admire the colourful reef and its inhabitants in a safe environment under the guidance of the professional Best Dives team. As opposed to a snorkelling excursion, the guide will be able to point out marine creatures to all attending guests and explain their characteristics. After dark, guests can admire the entirely different underwater world that unfolds when the sun sets. They might see minuscule polyps on the coral reefs come to life and feed on surrounding plankton, or be able to observe eels, stingrays and sharks.
Flyboarding is a fun and exhilarating water sport that combines a Jet Ski turbine with a wakeboard, enabling you to fly above the ocean or dive under like a dolphin. Our experienced instructors will ensure your safety and give you tips on how to start flying as soon as possible. Once you're up in the air, tricks like 360 degree flips and swirls will come easy to you.
