The reefs of the Maldives are famous for reef sharks, sea turtles, eagle rays, sting rays, and more. This 3-hour tour with TripAdvisors' leading Hulhumale tour company takes you to three snorkeling spots filled teeming with marine life and colorful coral — an ideal escape from the capital area of Male or Hulhumale. Discover the underwater world of the Maldives with an experienced and certified snorkeling guide.
Your snorkel guide will not only act as your ‘spotter’ to point out marine life that may not have caught your eye, but will assist less confident or inexperienced snorkelers, ensuring your equipment is comfortable and you feel safe in the water.
Through education of both guests and locals we strive to protect the environment in which we operate and limit wherever possible any negative impact preserving this country's unique location for generations to come.

Wow there’s nothing like snorkeling in the Maldives
I had an amazing time seeing so many fish, whale sharks, sting rays and mantas. Kamal made sure I was safe at all times. He was a wealth of information and I learned a lot, had a great time and I came away in awe of the ocean and all its dazzling creatures.
Prompt and great customer service
Unfortunately, I had to cancel my trip at the very last moment due to my personal situation.
However, the overall experience and communication with Secret Paradise went very smooth. Ruth has been very responsive and prompt in addressing all the queries I had. For an unexperienced person like me, she also explained clearly what to expect and how to prepare for the trip. I really wish I could experience snorkeling with them. If I ever happen to visit Maldives again, I would pick Secret Paradise for snorkeling.
Outstanding snorkeling experience!
Excellent experience! Each of the three sites offered different wonders - the sheer variety of sea life you can see just snorkeling is astonishing. The day I went, guide Mash and I saw masses of animals, including an enormous ray, eels, blue-lipped clams and a group of oceanic batfish (my new favorite fish). The OMG moment? When a black tip reef shark and a turtle casually swam past each other, surrounded by schools of smaller fish.
Mash is a wonderful guide - conscientious, warm, knowledgeable and completely devoted to sharing the wonders of his ocean home and preserving it. As a solo female traveler, I felt comfortable and well looked after at all times.
A little more about Secret Paradise, as I had the good fortune to go on several different tours and to benefit from Ruth's assistance with arranging ferry travel between islands. Based on this experience, I strongly recommend Secret Paradise to anyone planning a trip to the Maldives. You will receive excellent service, connect with local people and contribute to the sustainable well-being of the people and environment of the Maldives. Even if you're planning to go to a resort or a liveaboard, adding on a day or two through Secret Paradise to enrich your experience of the Maldives and its people. Absolutely unforgettable.

I had such a wonderful time. The guide made me feel very safe and comfortable - as I was travelling alone. The skipper was also very experienced.
