If you want to explore the countryside and intend to travel a lot, you would need a vehicle. Most of the Maldives is covered with sea and all the islands are surrounded by water. Therefore, to explore the country you need a boat to travel round the Maldives. In the Maldives we have boats known locally, “safari boat” especially designed for this purpose.
Safari boats are live aboard vessels where all your needs are catered. All live aboard vessels must comply with quite high regulatory standards. Most new generation live aboard vessels are equipped with cabins with attached toilets, air-conditioning in cabins and lounge area, restaurant & bar facilities, sun deck, sound proof generators, video facilities, and diving equipment such as compressors, oxygen cylinders etc. However please make sure you inform your local agent of any specific requirement in order to ensure that your holiday goes as planned.
