All activities include a coaching session with your own instructor should you be new to the sport or need a refresher.
Based on Gan in the southern atoll of Laamu, the island boasts an unusual red-tinted lake and an 8km stretch of white sand, making it the longest beach in the Maldives. On land, a guided jeep tour of the island allows you to explore ancient Buddhist ruins and gain unique insights into local Maldivian life. With accommodation in a deluxe beach front hotel equipped with a plunge pool, gym and wellness centre you can be sure to add some relaxation into the mix!
Upon arrival at Velana International Airport (MLE) you will be greeted by your guide and transferred by domestic flight to the island of Gan, in the southern atoll of Laamu and onto your guesthouse which will be your base for the week.
Settle in after your flight before taking your first steps on the sands of this tropical paradise, take a swim in the warm waters of the Indian Ocean or just explore the facilities of the guesthouse.
On Day 2, following breakfast served at the guesthouse the day will be spent sea kayaking, providing an opportunity to explore the east side of the atoll. You will be coached on how to paddle and manoeuvre the kayak before heading off into the inner atoll. There will be plenty of time to stop off at isolated sandbanks and uninhabited islands to snorkel and gain your first experience of the amazing underwater world of the Maldives. A picnic lunch will be eaten and there will be time to relax and sunbathe before kayaking back to Gan.
The remainder of the afternoon is free for you to relax on the beach, snorkel the house reef or just chill in the plunge pool.
Today the morning is free for you to hit the beach, snorkel the house reef or just chill in the peaceful guesthouse garden.
Following lunch you will be taken by your local guide on an exploration trip of the island of Gan by jeep. You will visit a number of historical places and learn more about the history of the Maldives and local life, even visiting a fish factory and a local vegetable farm. Keep an eye out for the local herd of goats that are often found hiding in the undergrowth! The trip includes a visit to a local café to sample traditional ‘hedika’ – Maldivian savory and sweet snacks served with black tea.
Day 4 is your chance to give SCUBA diving a go! The dive centre is a PADI registered dive school operated by Europeans and locals and was the first PADI scuba diving and water sports center on a local island in Laamu Atoll. For those who have not dived before, we offer a Discover Scuba Diving Course where you learn the basic safety guidelines and skills needed to dive under the direct supervision of a PADI Professional. You will complete two dives from the shore. Qualified divers can take 2 dives by boat to explore this virtually untouched paradise. For guests who would prefer not to dive we offer a guided snorkeling tour.
This morning you head out to the waves for the opportunity to learn to stand up paddle, windsurf or surf. With an instructor, learn and practice the skills required on land before testing them on the water. After an energetic morning the afternoon is free for you to relax or choose from additional activities and excursions which include dolphin watching and evening fishing.
On Day 6, breakfast is served at the guesthouse and the day is yours to enjoy as you please, relax on the beach or for those feeling energetic practice some of their new found skills. Optional diving trips can be organised for certified divers and a visit to the 5* resort of Six Senses can be organised (subject to availability).
