I’ve been to the Maldives a few times now and stayed in resorts I think this is by far my favourite way to experience the Maldives, I got to surf plenty of different locations and snorkel in incredible places and explore some islands I haven’t been on before, the Island hop crew were awesome and the food was 10 out of 10 every meal. I would love to do it again one day.

What an amazing way to explore the beautiful Maldives. I had the best experience on board the Handhu. The Island Hop crew were 10/10 and every meal was delicious! Plenty of activities for the less confident surfers who enjoy some relaxation/adventuring. Beautiful deck lounge to enjoy a good book or a sneaky bev. Plenty of opportunity for snorkelling, paddle boarding and for exploring the gorgeous surrounding Islands. Very sad that our time on board has come to an end. Hope to be back again next year.
