A tropical island paradise

Just another day in paradise. Idyllic tropical isles with powdery white sand beaches shaded by coconut palms and bathed by warm turquoise waters glowing against the backdrop of the deep blue sea outside the reef. Hibiscus, and bougainvillea highlights, and frangipani scented breezes. A swim surrounded by a multitude of brightly colored fish, or just about any water sport that takes your fancy.

That’s the Maldives—26 atolls, each a ring of small coral islands encircling a peaceful lagoon.

WHALE SUBMARINE

This excursion is slightly misleading - as it is not a submarine for whale watching, but one for getting a close up glimpse of an underwater reef. Descending 35m underwater, gaze out large windows to experience a stunning rainbow of underwater life.
