Water Sports
For the energetic or simply curious water sports in the Maldives are a wonderful way to shed cares and enjoy nature’s beauty and bounty. At Baros Maldives the facilities are designed for guest convenience. From a leisurely paddle in a glass bottom canoe or the excitement of windsurfing, there is something for everyone to enjoy at the Water Sports Centre.

Bladefish 7000 Seajet
We have introduced a new way for snorkellers and swimmers to explore the waters around Baros Maldives without any effort. The Seajet water scooter glides under its own power over the House Reef with a max. speed of 6.5 kmh. The sea scooter will pull you along calm lagoon’s, surface or take you under the water through graceful turns, loops and giving a new twist and adding fun to traditional snorkelling.

Pedaling Kayak
This double seated kayak is different from most other kayaks; it has two methods of propulsion. One is the traditional paddling. The second method is using a unique, fully adjustable, pedaling system. The pedals are alternately pushed back and forth with the feet and legs. With this movement the Penguin shaped flippers underneath the kayak makes a sweeping motion that drives the kayak forwards. The movement is swift and silent. Hands and arms can be at rest allowing you to go further and with less effort to get the most out of your experience.

Clear Bottom Kayak
The Caribe is half sit-on-top kayak, half canoe The crystal clear hull of the Caribe provides a window to the underwater world. Based on hull shape it has a remarkable tracking ability and it is very stable.

The Molokini canoe is a thrilling way to discover marine life without actually snorkelling, as guests can view the ocean´s floor, reefs and fish through its transparent bottom and sides.

The warm water and crystal clear blue lagoon provide a perfect environment for windsurfing, suiting the novice and expert alike.

Waterski & Wakeboard
These exciting activities are permitted only beyond the lagoon.
A resident Marine Biologist runs the Marine Centre as an information point where guests can learn all about the marine world as well participate in professionally guided snorkelling excursions. Our goal is to raise awareness and help protect the precious marine environment for future generations.

The Marine Centre organises some of the best marine excursions in the Maldives which are suitable for beginners, intermediate and advanced snorkelers. Coral Gardening workshops are held under a programme enabling guests to learn the propagation process of coral regeneration and to play a part in conserving the reefs surrounding Baros Maldives. Environment awareness programmes and marine life presentations are also conducted by the resident Marine Biologist. Besides being a source of information for our guests, the Marine Centre conducts reef cleaning events, participates in environmental initiatives and is in charge of raising awareness among our island staff as well.
Snorkelling in Maldives is wonderful throughout the islands but nowhere matches the convenience and beauty to be enjoyed at Baros Maldives. This romantic, luxury Maldives resort is renowned for its spectacular house reef so close to the shore that can be explored by beginners as well as experts. For guests who want to be more adventurous, there are several opportunities that are conducted by our Marine Centre team:

House Reef Tour
This tour will begin in the Marine Centre with a relaxed 20-minute class about marine organism that are expected to be seen. Our Marine Biologist will show you the best spots around the island, take photos of you during snorkelling and will give you the opportunity to ask questions before, during and after the snorkel. Since we have a strict "do not touch"- policy on the island, this is your only chance to touch a few selected marine species under the supervision of a professional.

Snorkelling Safari
If you have already explored all the little corners, the nooks and crannies of the stunning house reef at Baros Maldives, it is time to join a Snorkelling Safari by boat and discover two more reefs with our Marine Biologist. Isolated reefs with cliffs and caves for animals to feed and live in are perfect spots for snorkellers to peep into this hidden fascinating world. Our Marine biologist will take photos of you during snorkelling.

Night Snorkelling
Have you ever wondered what happens in the reef when the sun sets? Nocturnal creatures come out of their hiding places and make the reef their own for the night. Witness plankton glowing in the dark, a phenomenon called bioluminescence, which you can only experience during a night snorkelling trip. Armed with a powerful underwater flashlight, let yourself be amazed at how intense the reef becomes at night. Our house reef is the perfect setting for a night snorkel tour; it is sheltered and thus makes it a delightful and safe experience.
Private Snorkelling Lessons for beginners
Within just an hour in the water, beginners will learn the basics of snorkelling and will be taken out on our house reef in the safety of our Marine Centre team.

Coral Gardening Workshop
After a relaxed 15-minutes class about the coral propagation process, snorkel out with our marine biologist to look for broken, but living coral fragments in the reef. You will learn how to attach corals to our underwater tables and every six months you will receive an update on the growth of your nubbins as they develop on the table and attract numerous fish. Read more about our Coral Rehabilitation Programme here.

Private Snorkelling Experiences
Individual, personalised snorkelling experiences on the house reef or by boat during day or night time can be arranged on request at the Marine Centre.

Getting There

In the Indian Ocean, southwest of India and Sri Lanka. The Republic of the Maldives is an archipelago of about 1,190 coral islands southwest of India’s southern tip, some 670 km (416 miles) southwest of Sri Lanka. The islands are strung out in a chain, stretching 822 km (510 miles) from north to south across the Equator, and 130 km (80 miles) at the widest from west to east. Only 200 of them are inhabited with nearly 100 of the uninhabited islands turned into tourist resorts.

The total land area, if all the islands were one landmass, would amount to 298 square kilometres (115 square miles), about half the size of Singapore. In actual fact 99.9% of the Republic is sea. The islands are grouped in 26 natural atolls, ring-like coral formations enclosing a massive central lagoon, which gives the Maldives its unique paradise-like appearance.
