Kuramathi Island Resort adds glass-bottomed boat to excursion fleet

Glass floor boat thing 1Kuramathi Island Resort has added a very special boat to its fleet of vessels. ‘Coral’, a glass-bottomed boat is now ready for excursions at the resort’s Aqua Sports and Fun Excursions Centre and allows guests to marvel at the beauty of the Maldivian reefs, without even getting their toes wet!

The see-through hull of the boat makes the vessel perfect for those who wish to enjoy an afternoon on the water, enjoying the Maldivian breeze, whilst also peering below the surface of the ocean.

An experienced skipper has been trained to glide the boat over the stunning reefs of Rasdhoo Giri, ensuring not to damage the coral in any way. In addition, guests can also glimpse a famous shipwreck near the resort. Taking a total of 45 minutes, the trip lets guests witness fish of every colour and size as they dart underneath the glass viewing panels on the boat.

The boat is also available for private charter.

Kuramathi Island Resort is located in Rasdhoo Atoll, a 90-minute speedboat ride away from the international airport, and is owned and managed by Maldivian company, Universal Enterprises Ltd.
