This Maldives swim experience is ideal for swimmers aged 18 and over who are comfortable swimming 1-2km in the open water. You’ll split your time between swimming in the lagoon and taking the dhoni (boat) out to various coral reefs and islands for some incredible sightseeing during your open water swims.
During the camp you’ll discover what’s like to forgot about the outside world and let your worries melt away. You’ll learn exactly what you need to do take your swimming to the next level with underwater filming and analysis plus lots of instruction and one-on-one feedback.
If you love food, you’ll absolutely love the delicious food options at Samuga restaurant located at the resort.
There’s also a spa on location for those who would prefer to relax even more during the trip (if this is even possible!).
