Fishing in the Maldives is usually dependent on the weather. Generally, warm and sunny throughout the year, Maldives has 2 main seasons - the South West and the North East monsoons. Although bad weather is rare, the varying temperatures can affect the underwater currents leading to varying fish movements.
Angling can be done from the 'dhoni' itself and from its own speed boat or the 'dinghy'. Reef fishing, Trolling, Bottom Fishing and Flats fishing - anything and everything is possible. The 'dhonis' are fully furnished and air-conditioned to make your journey of discovery a truly memorable experience.
At the edge of the reef and directly above it, you are greeted with groupers like the 'purple colored luna-tailed rock grouper' & the 'black spotted panther grouper', Barracudas, Snappers, Bluefin Trevally Jack and the Giant Trevally Jack. A fully grown Giant Trevally Jack, which can reach a length of around 1.70 meters, is one of the strongest fighters of the reef.
Sometimes, these fishes take the bait and disappear into caves and coral shelves. During such times, do your best to stay steady. Hold on to anything stable and keep your rod high.
A vacation in Maldives through a cruise around the beautiful, colorful atolls can be a breath taking experience. A cruise is usually planned on a 7 day or 14 day itinerary. Covering around 2-3 atolls or more, these cruises also provide you with opportunities to pursue your hobbies like diving, snorkeling, fishing etc.
The thrill and exhilaration of water skiing and parachuting can be had together through the sport of parasailing. Fly with a parachute over the multi-colored Indian Ocean and at the same time be towed by a speed boat. Get an unsurpassed aerial view of Maldives as you fly over the droplets like islands.
Get sprayed with droplets of water. Enjoy the kick of feeling the wind rush past you, as the boat speeds through the water.
Once you start sailing on one of the catamarans, over the exquisitely beautiful waters of Maldives, you will never want to stop for even a single second.
