2. Water Skiing
If you intend to try water sports for the first time, we recommend water skiing since it’s one of the most accessible and fun water sports in the Maldives. You will be strapped safely behind a boat that will pull you on an enjoyable ride in the calm ocean water. Water skiing is a safe sport, and the coast constantly has a lot of lifeguards; you can try water skiing without worrying about safety hazards. When you book Maldives tour packages from GT Holidays, our agents will suggest avoiding the months from June through September since the rainy weather, high winds and choppy ocean currents make it unsuitable for Water Skiing.

If you wish to learn more about the numerous aquatic creatures that are part of the Indian Ocean, then Scuba diving is the outdoor adventure in the Maldives you are looking for. You will get a great insight into the life beneath the ocean and witness almost 700 different species of fish and aquatic fauna amidst nearly 70 varieties of colourful coral reefs.

When in Maldives, you will have water sports on your mind, and parasailing is one of the exciting experiences you must try through our Maldives travel packages.

Find yourself gliding in the air as the wind caresses your face. Get an amazing aerial view of the ocean waters beneath you throughout the thrilling ride.
A recent and popular sport that is one of the most popular outdoor activities in the Maldives to catch your attention on the shores of Maldives could be Kitesurfing.
