Project

The workshops begins the day after your orientation so you are immersed straightaway within the island life.  Immerse yourself in the local community and help in beach clean ups.

Snorkelling And Fishing

The hundreds of atolls that are the Maldives is formed of the carbonate-rich rocks submerged beneath the warm waters surrounding the shores. Not only are these responsible for the beautiful white beaches but they are also a foundation of diverse sea-life. Amongst the corals, some of the most magnificent fish can be found; native only to the Maldives.

Surfing

Being situated within the Indian Ocean, the Maldives receives an unprecedented amount of fetch that batter it’s shorelines, especially during the stormy season. Surfers rush from the in-land at the chance of catching a big swell within this exotic paradise.
