Dive & Explore
Diving in Maldives can be experienced throughout the islands, but Baros Maldives is unique as an underwater destination for several reasons:
It has two centres devoted to diving and exploring the sea: The Dive Centre and the separate Marine Centre.
It has a stunning house reef full of spectacular marine life just a few strokes or walking paces from the beach (no need to go by boat).
There are 30 world class dive spots within less than 50 minutes by boat.
At the Dive Centre guests can learn not only scuba diving, but also participate in Eco Diving as the EcoDive Centre is the first in the Maldives.
At the separate Marine Centre, guests can borrow snorkelling gear free of charge, join guided snorkelling excursions, obtain information and take part in awareness programmes conducted by the resident Marine Biologist.
For the energetic or simply curious water sports in the Maldives are a wonderful way to shed cares and enjoy nature’s beauty and bounty. From a leisurely paddle in a glass bottom canoe, a catamaran cruise across idyllic waters or the excitement of windsurfing, there is something for everyone to enjoy at the Water Sports Centre
Canoeing – The Molokini canoe is a thrilling way to discover marine life without actually snorkelling, as guests can view the ocean’s floor, reefs and fish through its transparent bottom and sides.
Catamaran Sailing – A light breeze is enough to get a comfortable cruising speed. No sailing experience required as this sailing is guided by a skipper.
Windsurfing – The warm water and crystal clear blue lagoon provide a perfect environment for windsurfing, suiting the novice and expert alike.
Waterski & Wakeboard – These exciting activities are permitted only beyond the lagoon.
Snorkelling in Maldives is wonderful throughout the islands but nowhere matches the convenience and beauty to be enjoyed at Baros Maldives. For guests who want to be more adventurous, there are several opportunities as listed here:
Snorkelling Safari – Conducted by a Marine Biologist, this safari visits at least two more reefs with cliffs and caves where animals feed and live, providing a peep into the fascinating, hidden underwater world. Underwater cameras can be rented at the Marine Centre to capture this extraordinary experience.
Night Snorkelling – The house reef is the perfect setting for a conducted night snorkel tour for advanced snorkellers, with snorkel equipment and underwater flash lights provided.
Educational Marine Biologist Snorkelling – After a relaxed 30-minute class about the marine organisms likely to be seen, the Marine Biologist guides snorkellers to the best spots around the island.
Private Snorkelling Experiences – Individual, personalised snorkelling experiences can be arranged on request at the Marine Centre.
