Havufen Fushi Dives in with New Line of Water Sports

By Pardhasaradhi Gonuguntla

Just in time to comfort those lamenting the end of summertime sea sports, Huvafen Fushi announces a new line of water sport activities guaranteed to satisfy the ocean-based desires normally put on hold during the winter. Under its brand new signature series of water-based entertainment entitled FLOAT, Huvafen Fushi offers guests unprecedented access to the treasure trove of aquatic beauty surrounding every inch of the resort.

Float includes a variety of motorized and non-motorized activities that will delight both the thrill-seekers and those looking for a leisurely glide over the sparkling blue waves. Guests up to the white-knuckle challenge of reeling in barracuda can schedule a Big Game Fishing outing or decide on a more concise Sunset Fishing expedition where wahoo and mahi mahi tuna abound. For other pulse-pounding activities, guests can hop on a Jet Ski, soar through the skies on a parasail, and cling to a wakeboard behind a blazing speedboat. Those seeking the ultimate thrill can climb aboard the Sea Bob, a sub-aquatic motorized vehicle (as seen being used by Angelina Jolie in Tomb Raider) that mimics the movements of a dolphin as it hurtles through the sea at up to 12 miles per hour.

Guests more interested in a serene sea-based experience can drift along the Indian Ocean on a glass-bottom kayak. After viewing them from above, guests can throw on a pair of flippers and submerge themselves alongside the ocean life through the scuba diving and snorkeling programs along Huvafen Fushi’s own coral reef system. So not to forget the younger members of the family, children ages 8 and older are invited to participate in the “Bubble Maker” program while children over 10 can also access the “Junior Scuba” and “Junior Open Water Diver” courses.

To commemorate the launch of FLOAT, Huvafen Fushi offers a limited-time package where guests who book a Big Game Fishing trip are entitled to a complementary 15-minute ride on the Sea Bob. If they dare…

Located in the North Malé Atoll, Huvafen Fushi Maldives is a pristine island resort offering 43 naturally-modern bungalows and home to the world’s first underwater spa treatment rooms. Managing company Per AQUUM Retreats, Resorts & Residences is dedicated to delivering an experience beyond each guest’s wildest dreams while remaining dedicated to the sustainable development of the resources of the Maldives.
