Dolphin Watching

There are whales around the Maldives, but the most accessible marine spectator sport is watching dolphins, usually the utterly acrobatic Spinner variety.

The Spinners usually obligingly feed around sunset, allowing resorts to load up a dhoni with paying guests and some sort of onboard bar. Kodak moments apart, this is a lovely excursion, romantic even, as the sun descends into the ocean and the scores of dolphins cavort above and below the waves. Visitors especially keen on dolphin watching should check with their resort how far they have to travel to take in the spectacle, and may wish to book accordingly.
