Snorkel Adventures Not To Be Missed!

At Kuredu Resort & Spa Maldives, there is a wide variety of snorkel activities and excursions to choose from, with everything from ‘never-snorkelled-before’ beginners lessons to idyllic full-day trips. Use the Kuredu App to make planning and booking your adventures easy!
Kuredu’s most popular snorkel excursions:
Snorkel with Turtles
The reefs around Kuredu are home to an astounding number of turtles, both green and hawksbill, so snorkelling here offers an amazing opportunity to observe them in their natural environment. Snorkel at Kuredu Caves where the reef is made up of a series of overhangs – the largest green sea turtle community of the Maldives hang out here! The beautiful seagrass meadows in the lagoons offer a good chance of spotting green turtles too – it’s their main food source so are often found grazing.
Full Day Snorkel Boat Trip
Nothing beats spending a full day out on the ocean and exploring the beauty of coral reefs. Admire the pristine, palm-fringed islands and sandbanks on the way to the prettiest snorkelling spots in the atoll. They’re home to colourful fish, a huge variety of corals and other marine species. A full-day snorkel adventure also provides a great opportunity to see the Maldives spinner dolphins, which sometimes play around the boat.
Night Snorkeling: Discovery in the Dark!
Snorkelling after the sun has set allows the discovery of a whole new world. See how the reef, and its inhabitants change as darkness descends. Beautiful feather stars open up, feeding in the currents, vivid green parrot fish can be seen sleeping among the coral blocks, and the jacks and snappers of the reef dart around hunting for food. Night also brings some of the reefs larger inhabitants into shallower water, with large nurse sharks, stingrays and humphead parrotfish are all regularly seen on night time adventures.
