The fantastic climate in Maldives in addition to its spectacular marine life enables one to enjoy almost every imaginable water sport in this island and the best part is that almost every Resort has their very own water sports center, professional instructors along with any equipment required on hire. Diving, Surfing, Snorkeling and Kayaking are some of the most popular activities undertaken here. Kayaking has the added advantage of being both relaxing and adventurous giving you a wholesome experience in just this single activity.
There are a number of Kayak varieties you can choose from in most resorts, you can opt to either paddle or pedal your way along the shallow stretches of sea or choose between a single or tandem kayak. If you are not much of a diver or snorkeler kayaking is one of your best options to enjoy the amazing collection of Marine life that the Maldivian Ocean boasts of. A complete glass or a peek- a – boo Kayak are the types that you must choose from. Of them both, the glass kayaks are the better option and enables you to clearly enjoy the rich vista of marine life.
