Stunning landscapes, very warm hosts!

We were welcomed by a very warm Farish, who is jovial and charming. Enjoyed the boat ride to Gulhi which has a spectacular beach. Farish was very attentive and answered all our incessant questions about local culture, food, history, marine life of Maldives. He knows his home well. It was my first time snorkelling and I couldn’t have asked for a better instructor, Farish was patient and calmed me. The blue waters of Maldives hold a lot of colourful secrets-fishes and corals. Definitely recommend this to anyone who wants a slice of Maldivian life, I learnt a lot.

It was a lovely experience touring Maldives with Farish. He’s very charming and playful and entertained all our questions about the islands, local culture, history, marine animals. Gulhi, our first stop was absolutely stunning. The beach is pristine with cute corners everywhere. I snorkelled for the first time and couldn’t have asked for a better instructor. Farish was extremely patient and the fishes were a colourful delight to the eyes. The blue water is suddenly filled with so many colours as we look down. Definitely recommend this tour, they make you feel very homely.

Just a day out with friends!!

The meeting place was at the Hulhumale Jetty which was a 20 min. walk from my hotel. Upon meeting my guides (2) Mahee and Farish I found out that I was the only one on the tour that day. I chose to visit 2 islands South of Male. We headed out to Gulhi first with out boat captain, visited a shipping yard where they build boats. Walked around the town as Mahee explained the history of the island and it's people. Even got to taste fresh coconut juice and the flesh which is totally different from say a Hawaiian coconut. We then headed to the next island of Maafushi. Walked around the town, there's even a prison there and once again Mahee provided the history behind this island as well. We then had lunch at a local restaurant that had outdoor seating. Food was good! Company great! First time I tasted a chip that is made from garbanzo beans! Tastes close to having a chicharron but better! We then headed back North and stopped at a snorkeling spot in the ocean. Mahee was great to make sure I wouldn't drift away in the current by holding my hand. Saw a variety of beautiful fish. He suggested another spot to snorkel but I was a bit exhausted so declined and luckily we did as I could see from a distance some overcast skies with a dark rain cloud looming over Male. The current would've been stronger and water more choppy making snorkeling difficult. On the way back, we spotted a pod of pilot whales and tried to be quiet so as not to scare them to go underwater. And yes, we got caught in the rain heading back to Hulhumale. Rough seas and battered rain but it was an adventure! Since I was the only one on the tour, it felt as if I was spending a day with friends! Mahee even got us a "lift" so we wouldn't get wet from the rain, I was brought back to my hotel instead of walking. Farish was also great and he had to take the ferry back to Male as we departed since that is where he lives. The two of them definitely know their home and history of the Maldives, so book this tour if you want to see how the Maldivians live on other islands besides Male. Not as much motorcycles running around other islands, it's much more calmer, peaceful, and less crowded. Glad I did this tour so I could experience a different side of the Maldives.
