Power & Speed
The easiest and least strenuous activity on offer, but by far one of the most unique ways to spend your afternoon! Be whisked up into the clear blue skies over Kuredu to enjoy the stunning views of the reefs and islands from a birds-eye view!
Available for beginners or people with more experience, this sport is fast and exciting!
Those who have tried it before will remember the first time they ever stood up and how exhilarated they felt. Don’t let being new to the sport put you off, it’s not as difficult as it looks, but it is as fun as it looks!
Banana & Blast Rides
Appropriately named, these sports are fast and exciting to say the least! Challenge your partner to a ride or two and see which of you can manage to hang on the longest as you are whipped around the beautiful clear waters! A giggle for all the friends and family!
Speed Boat Excursions
Whether you want to see dolphins, go snorkelling and view the fantastic marine life, or combine the two while taking a trip around the atoll for the day, a fantastic trip can be designed for you and your partner to enjoy together! A perfect surprise for your loved one on a special occasion or anniversary!
Pedalos & Canoes
A more leisurely way to enjoy an afternoon in paradise! Why not take your snorkelling gear, canoe or pedalo out to the house reef and hop into the crystal clear waters whenever you feel like it, jumping back on when you want a rest! Not so happy in the water, but have a partner crazy about snorkelling?
This is a great way to spend your time together, why not stay on the Pedalo and catch some rays while your other half snorkels alongside?

Classed as an ‘extreme’ sport, this is an option for those looking for a really exciting and thrilling time! A truly exhilarating way to combine all the fun the water and wind have to offer, giving you a real sense of freedom!
This sport is really taking off in Europe, but why learn in the cold and the rain, when you can learn in 30 degree water under a clear blue sky?
A light breeze is enough to get a comfortable cruising speed…whether you choose to sail off towards the sunset one evening, or simply wish to take in the beautiful landscape of the Maldives away from the island.
For the more experienced sailor, in stronger winds, why not put your skills to the test and see how fast you can really go!
Still not convinced? Why not go along to one of the FREE Introductions to Windsurfing and Catamaran Sailing every Tuesday, Wednesday and Saturday at 16:00!
