KITING in the PARADISE with no one else………… than US!!!

The best kite surfing conditions in Maldives are from May to October, with a max. wind speed around 20 knots.

A kite safari on board of Nautilus Two offers the opportunity to call at the best spots with varying difficulty levels during a seven or ten-day kite safari. The spots will be adjusted to adapt to the attendant's facilities and weather conditions - top-notch surfing fun is guaranteed!

Our Crew is best trained on helping  kiters getting prepared (diving tanks with filling hose are available), taking off and landing their kites. To guarantee best safety during the kite sessions, we always have two dhingis with crew around.

 Routing 9 or 10 nights:

(Male – South Male Atoll - Fihalhohi – Felidhoo Atoll – Kunafhasi – Anbara - Alimata – Fulidhu – South Male Atoll – Maniyafushi – Male) 

We start from Male on the arrival day. (If all guests arrive in the morning) After about two hour cruise we arrive in South Male Atoll –  close to the Island Fihalhohi  – there is a big sandbank ………………with a huge Lagoon - this Lagoon is connected to one side with western outside reef and the other side with the atoll inside  – a welcome change is always a visit on the tourist island Fihalohi

which is nearby – after 2 nights we go further south to Felidhoo Atoll -  the uninhabited island Kunafhasi with some palm trees and a big sand area is the perfect location for the next 2 nights – the big Lagoon around the Island is a beautiful spot in the middle of nowhere – at Kunafhasi we make also our Island Barbeque -  a great fun is a beach volleyball match with our crew – traveling towards south for one more hour, we get to the uninhabited Island Anbara – it’s also a beautiful spot with some palm trees - with a big sand area to lounge all kites without trouble – after 2 nights on this spot,  we cruise over to the eastside close to the island Alimata – a huge sandbank with a fantastic lagoon is waiting for us – after another 2 days we cruise up north again -  we stay at the lagoon of the fisherman island Fulidhoo (option is Fihalhohi) –  this island with 600 maldivians habitants  gives you a good impression about living on an Island – here you will also find some small shops – the lagoon is very, very big and connected with the eastern outside reef – on the next day we cruise further up north close to the island Manyiafushi – there are 2 small banks with big lagoons in the center of the atoll -  next day, sadly, we have to bring you back to the airport Male.

If there is no wind we offer  Diving for FREE of CHARGE– therefore we have a separate diving dhoni and a diving instructor - which is always on tour with the safari. It is a pleasure for us to show the underwater world of Maldives  to our guests as it  is one of the best dive spots in the world. (a diving license is required)

For Non Divers:  Our dive instructor is pleased to offer you Discover Scuba Diving or beginner and advanced diving courses. (diving courses are not included and will be charged extra)

Diving activities can be booked on board, payment is also directly on board. Please let us know in advance if you would wish to dive so we can be well organized.

Snorkeling:

Snorkeling can be done any the time you like, but there are some special spots where you can snorkel with the manta rays – you should not miss this opportunity and bring along your mask an fins.

 Other Activities:

Once a trip we also offer night fishing with our diving dhoni for all guest. Here we mainly  catch there Red Snappers or White Snapper
