This was an amazing experience with a seasoned guide, and best of all locals were benefitting from my tourism dollars. The sandbank is beautiful, and snorkelling with the guide and our group was fun. Choosing this travel experience over something associated with a resort gave me the best flavour of Maldivian life.
Amazing team and half day

We had a great tour, sandbank and snorkeling

Ruth was very responsive, all directions very clear. Our guide Mash has been amazing, very helpful and accomodating. He also knows a lot about Maldives coral/sightseeing spots but also about its history (he is a local who lived 11 years in Manchester and knows some French too:). On top of that, he can play with kids easily and in a very caring way. Great thanks to the captain too, very friendly, navigating a pretty new speedboat

Ruth is the manager of SPM and she works so hard for her customers, her staff only have good things to say about her, what a wonderful close knit team!

I did the Sandbank Tour with Rumey and it's clear to me she's been well trained with what she does. It was her first time escorting a client solo but the whole time, she went above and beyond to make my experience a pleasure from beginning to end. The snorkelling guide and boat operator were equally as hospitable.

5 stars for SPM, highly recommended by me!
Great snorkeling options whan in Male area

I took two tours with Secret Paradise in June 2022 - 3 Points Snorkeling and Sandbank Snorkeling and Sunset Cruise. Both were definitely worth it, and the Secret Paradise team was excellent - Ruth was very responsive during the booking process, and the boat teams were very professional and helpful. I had a really great time on both trips, and I highly recommend this company.
Great Snorkeling Experience around Male
