Morning Fishing , as the dawn breaks, fish come up to feed. Throw in a line, sit back and watch the dark sky turn to breathtaking shades of indigo, orange and blue and soon there'll be a huge catch to take back for lunch.

Night Fishing , it's an opportunity to watch and be a part of the sunset from the Dhoanis as reef fish began their nocturnal feeding frenzy. Be alert as fish tend to eat and run, cheating the eager fisherman of his catch.

Big Game Fishing , be ambitious and net a big fish. Trawling is the best method to get barracuda, wahoo, sailfish, and it is absolutely adventurous.

Sunset Cocktail , a subdued, calm alternative to fishing. Get on a Dhoani and enjoy a cocktail while watching the sun go down in a kaleidoscope of colors.

Snorkeling , the lagoons of Baa Atoll are home to some of the more unique marine life such as lionfish, angle fish and large manta rays. In order to preserve this underwater wonderland, guests are reminded not to step on corals, or break or take away any part of the reef.

Island Hopping , visit one local island, one uninhabited island, and one resort. Have a barbecue and go snorkelling on a private island and create lifetime memories.
