Day 1: MALÉ to FULIDHOO

We commence our Maldives Islands Hopping experience after meeting your Indy Backpackers crew at The Malé International Airport at 8:30am for our first boat transit, we head to the harbour to experience our first glimpse of local life as we take a local boat to on the picturesque Island of Fulidhoo. 

We arrive in Fulidhoo in time for lunch and check straight into our first hotel. Tonight we'll enjoy an included rooftop dinner as we settle in to the local island vibe and get to know your new Indy family. 

If you think today was a fun start, get excited as tomorrow we get to swim with Whale Sharks!

Day 2: WHALE SHARK EXCURSION

At all of our locations you have a chance to join in on community and environmental projects. Today we start with amazing sunrise on the beach followed by the opportunity to take part in the Fulidhoo Beach Clean up project which help keep these beautiful beaches in pristine condition. After your well earned breakfast, we will get to experience our first excursion... Swimming with the Whale Sharks! 

Whale Sharks are in fact the world's largest fish and permanent residents to the area. As we cruise across the channel, you will need to keep your eyes peeled for them as we make our way to the reefs of the South Ari Atoll. 

After the excursion we are dropped at the most southern point of the island where there are a number of beautiful sand banks. There we get to enjoy a fresh seafood lunch before heading back to our hotel for the evening.

Day 3: SHIPWRECK & NURSE SHARKS

Today we explore beautiful Vaavu Atoll, which contains and array of amazing bucket-list experiences. ​Our first stop, the shipwreck! You can jump off the wreck, swim around it or even through the stern which allows for some great content.

From here we have our included lunch on a sandbank in the middle of the Indian Ocean, get up and close with the Marine Life at Fulidhoo and the Alimatha Resort, where you will likely see and swim with the resident Stingrays and Nurse Sharks.

Day 4: MAAFUSHI

We begin today with our final breakfast on Fulidhoo and make our way to the port to take our next local boat to the Maldives most commercial island - Maafushi!

Maafushi is a crowd favourite because it has lots of water sports, great scuba diving, beach parties and nightlife on its floating bar! After we arrive you will have some free time to get settled, then we will walked down to the bikini beach together to have a sunset swim followed by a nice big buffet dinner. For those who want to venture to the party boat (otherwise known as the floating bar), we will sneak over for a drink together before calling it a night!

Day 5: SCUBA DIVE EXCURSION

Today we can tick another item off the bucket list...Scuba Diving! The Maldives is one of the best locations in the world for diving not only because of the abundance of marine life and coral, but because the water is extremely clear and calm, which also makes it perfect for the first timer! 

Early in the morning we head over to the reefs surrounding Guraidhoo for the dive, and start our search for the Green Sea Turtle and Spotted Eagle Sting-Ray. 

In the evening join us on our night fishing excursion where we will be eating whatever we catch straight out of the ocean!

Day 6: CENTARA RESORT DAY

What would be the perfect way to spend a full free day in the Maldives? At an all inclusive resort surrounded by amazing people of course! 

Today we depart for Centara Resort, where we have the option to indulge in the all inclusive package which includes; transfers, resort entry, international buffet lunch and unlimited cocktails. Sound good? We think so too! 

In the evening, it's time for some fun as we jump onboard a party boat and dance the night away!
