Maldives Sailing Cruise

Explore the Wonderful Maldives on a Sailing Cruise

Maldives Beach

Catamarans, with their shallow draughts, allow you to explore the numerous islands and reefs that are set in this abundant and vibrant crystal blue Indian Ocean in total comfort. We can think of few places where this is more of value than the beautiful islands of the Maldives.

To sail amongst this water wonderland is amazing. To be able to dive and snorkel amongst the underwater landscape is simply out of this world. If you prefer to scuba then diving can be arranged with the local diving clubs in each location.

Our large Dream 60 and Nautitech 82 craft offer the ultimate dream sea safari, accommodating up to 16 guests in 8 comfortable cabins, each with en suite shower and WC. Amenities include a spacious saloon and dining area and an ample sun deck – a perfect location to sit and relax and watch the world go by, whilst enjoying a long cooling cocktail and taking in the sunset and ocean’s breeze. The cruise is on a full board basis, with plenty of fresh local produce, tropical fruits and abundant fresh fish, featuring on the chef’s menu.

The catamaran has all the latest navigational equipment to enable safe and pleasant sailing as you explore a multitude of islands, many of which are uninhabited. The itinerary includes the North Male Atoll, South Male Atoll and Ari Atoll – amongst some of the best places to be discovered by kayak, snorkelling or diving. The crew of three provide attentive yet discreet service and detailed local knowledge throughout the 8 days / 7 nights cruise that departs every Tuesday from HULHUMALE

Weekly departures are guaranteed and we think this is the perfect way to experience uninhabited islands, beautiful beaches, fishing villages and the Maldivian way of life, all in good company.
