Snorkelling Trips

You want to see the underwater world with limited equipment? Then join one of our snorkelling trips!
We go to different sites around our hotel at AA Bodufolhudhoo. The atoll is a pelagic paradise. Unlike elsewhere in the Maldives, where most snorkeling and dive sites are protected by a reef, Ari is known for its thilas (submerged pinnacles), both inside and outside the central atoll lagoon, acting as an aggregation site for plenty of marine life.
The opportunity to swim with whale sharks is one of the highlights for divers and snorkelers visiting Ari Atoll. These gentle giants visit the area year round. Mantas are also common around Ari Atoll, and it is possible for snorkelers to see them as they float gracefully through sandy lagoons. There is nothing like snorkeling in Maldives. You can explore crystal clear, blue waters and have an unforgettable time by snorkeling at Maldives and enjoying a myriad of other attractions that it has to offer
