Start and end in Male, the "Maldives On A Shoestring" trip is a guided explorer trip that takes 8 days. You will travel through Male, Ukulhas and Rasdhoo in Maldives. "Maldives On A Shoestring" is a small group trip which includes accommodation, meals and others.

Our Maldives on a Shoestring gives you the opportunity to explore the Maldives, without the high price tag. We'll start our time in the capital city of Male, where we'll spend the night in nearby Hulhumale. We'll then make use of local ferries or scheduled speedboats to explore the beautiful islands of Rasdhoo and Ukulhas where you'll get to experience the 'real Maldives'. We take time to explore the local communities, see the local fishermen and of course, you'll have diving and snorkelling opportunities where you can explore the house reefs. If you'd like to extend your time in the Maldives, speak to us about island resort extensions.
