How to See Dolphins in the Maldives
Dolphins are enchanting creatures that seem to love putting on a show and if you would like to see them during your stay in the Maldives, Kuredu Resort is a good choice of destination, offering incredible opportunities to see them as they spend their days playing and hunting for food inside the atoll. Spinner dolphins are often seen cruising past Sai Kotari or the ‘O’ Resort at the end of the day, but if you want a chance of getting a closer look, hop on one of the various excursions.
