Overview
Highlights
    What to Expect
    At your chosen departure time, find your way to Hulhumale Jetty in Malé or opt for hotel pickup. Meet your captain and crew, then board a speedboat bound for some of the Maldives' best snorkeling spots. The day's sites will be chosen with consideration for weather and ocean conditions.

    During the trip, enjoy the scenery and get fitted with a mask, fins, and snorkel. Buoyancy aids are also available, but snorkeling is only appropriate for those who can swim unassisted. Once you arrive at the first site, listen to an orientation on responsible, respectful snorkeling, then hop into the Indian Ocean with your guide and group and start exploring. As you float around, keep watch for rays, reef sharks, and sea turtles. Your guide will remain with the group to ensure your comfort and safety. 

    End your tour back at your original departure point.

    Much thanks to Ruth, Shaa and team for the amazing half day private snorkelling tour! Ruth was very responsive and helpful to my last minute inquiry, and Shaa was a super cheerful and experienced tour guide who went over and beyond to make it a 5* trip. I am a recreational

    Hi Cynie Thanks so much for your review. Great to hear you enjoyed your snorkeling tour with Shaa and that you also managed to pick up some tips on improving your free diving skills. Very jealous as this is something I seem unable to get to grips with! I will be sure to share your comments with the team. Thanks again and hope to see you back in the water again soon. Kind regards Ruth

    I had a fantastic morning snorkelling with Mash on the speedboat. I booked last minute after discussing the options with Ruth, who went out of her way to reply even whilst out on the water. In the end I decided to do a morning local snorkel trip to three different spots not

    Hi Thomas Thanks for your review and great to hear you enjoyed your morning snorkelling with Mash. We pride ourselves on our integrity as I see no point in not being open and honest as this only leads to dissatisfied or disappointed guests so in my mind far better to set expectations from the outset. As you discovered whilst coral is not in it's prime we are not short on marine life and you certainly struck lucky encountering a mobula ray as soon as you hit the water! Have noted your comments regarding the toilet facilities and will review to see what improvements can be made, maybe they just needed a woman's touch after I had been out the office for the weekend :-) Thanks again for your review which I will share with the team. Enjoy the rest of your trip! Kind Regards Ruth

    Ruth, who ran the operations, was super-efficient. I got all the options via email within a few minutes & I was able to pick what suited my needs and had booked my safari. The next morning the staff was prompt and very professional. The best part is the team knows the water all

    We booked a half day snorkeling trip with Secret Paradise and we were very pleased. Before we left we received a safety briefing and the boat provided equipment and life preservers for those who wanted them. They took us to three spots to snorkel. The first one was a little

    Good Morning, Thank you for your review, great to hear that you enjoyed your snorkeling experience with the team. The safety and comfort of our guests is important to us and therefore the number of guides is always proportionate to the number of guests in a group, so it is good to hear that this was recognised and welcomed by you. With regard to the snorkel point where you encountered the sting rays, this is actually adjacent to a fish production factory island as opposed to an inhabited island. It is the discards that are thrown into the ocean from production. We do not condone or support fish feeding in order to attract marine life for the benefit of tourists, however, in this instance the practice of discarding has been used by fisherman for centuries and currently there is not as yet a strong fish by-product industry in the Maldives. Perhaps an opportunity for someone reading my review response! Thanks again for taking time to place your review and I will be sure to share it with the team. Kind Regards Ruth
