Maldives Dream

Explore the Wonderful Maldives on a Sailing Cruise

Sailing in MaldivesCatamarans, with their shallow draught, 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 Eleuthera 60 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 these cruises that departs every week from HULHUMALE

Both 7 night and 10 night itineraries are on offer and our departures are guaranteed. 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.

The Weather

Whilst temperatures are fairly constant all year typically in the mid to high 20’s celsius, Novemeber to April is the dry season and the most popilar time to visit the Maldives. The monsoon season is typically between May and October and whilst you will experience heavy downpours, they are generally fairly short  and the sun soon comes out again, so in that respect, the Maldives are certainly a year round destination with waem weather and  at least partly sunny days almost guaranteed even during the rainy season.

Note: The Itinerary may vary during the season according to weather and operating conditions. Your crew will keep you fully briefed each day
