Jumeirah Dhevanafushi launches Underwater Snorkeling Adventure package

Jumeirah Dhevanafushi resort is inviting guests to explore its incredible house reef with an ‘Underwater Snorkeling Adventure’ package.

The package offers guests the chance to discover some of the world’s rarest, largest and most beautiful coral reefs under the guidance of the resort’s expert marine biologist. Located in the southernmost tip of the Maldives, the heart-shaped island is one of the most remote islands in the Maldives; perfect for anyone who wants to ‘get away from it all’.

Guests will begin the morning with an exclusive opportunity to meet with the hotel’s marine biologist, who will talk about the importance of ecology and preserving the reef through an animated presentation. From there, guests will follow one of the resort’s experienced guides and plunge into the warm crystal clear waters, discovering a kaleidoscopic world teeming with marine life.

“The adventure package offers the opportunity to listen to the parrotfish feeding off the coral, watch schools of vibrantly coloured reef fish swim by and search for sleeping octopuses by the rocks. Other finds may include trumpet fish, groupers, butterfly fish and wrasse and, if lucky, the guide may be able to find some turtles; further afield dolphins have been known to visit,” the resort said in a press statement.

“Competent swimmers can even snorkel along the 850 metre stretch to the water bungalows, swimming along the house reef and diving past the drop-off into the deep blue ocean to discover some of the most incredible coral reefs the world has to offer.”

The Underwater Snorkeling Adventure package also offers the opportunity to help with cleaning the house reef, and for anyone looking to go scuba diving during their stay, the resort’s PADI certified Meradhoo dive centre can accommodate everyone from beginners to experts.

Jumeirah Dhevanafushi redefines notions of paradise with stunning geographical appeal and complete seclusion in the southernmost Gaafu Alifu Atoll. With only 35 exclusive villas, both beach and water based, all come with private butler and private pools to ensure a uniquely private and personalised experience. A short boat ride away from the Main Island lies a separate water village of ‘The Ocean Pearls’; 16 overwater villas perched on platforms overlooking the iridescent ocean, complete with its own fine-dining restaurant and team of private butlers .
