Sailing in the beautiful blue waters of the Maldives is a favourite activity of the islands. A catamaran that has two parallel hulls with the sail in the middle is very popular here because it is quite spacious and more stable than a regular boat. If you want to see more of the Maldive's nature and stunning sunsets, catamaran sailing will be a great adventure for you. You can rent a smaller catamaran for yourself or a bigger one with a crew and a powerful engine that allows greater speeds if you are planning on travelling longer distances.
The low draft makes the catamaran a suitable vessel to explore coral reefs and atolls with, which the Maldives are so famous for. Most visitors prefer to rent a catamaran with a guide and crew to see the great sea life, to go snorkelling and to find the best swimming spots. Sailing on a catamaran will be a great experience that you will remember for a long time, especially if you sail from the beautiful capital of Malé or Hulhumale. The best time for sailing in the Maldives is during the dry months from November to April.
