Maldives Seaplane? Speedboat? No matter how you get to Malé International airport, your next step will be to get your transfer to the resort you booked.
Landing at Malé airport is the end of the first stage of your journey. Now you get to travel by boat, seaplane or domestic transfer to your island resort.
If you didn’t already know, most holidays automatically come with a speedboat transfer to your island resort - unless of course the island can only be accessed by seaplanes.
If your Maldives vacation doesn’t come with a seaplane transfer then you can always ask your travel agent about the seaplane transfer option when you book your holiday – transfers by seaplane will always cost extra from around $100 per person even if you have chosen an all inclusive holiday to the Maldives.
Why Choose a Maldives Seaplane Transfer
- You are off to a resort which is further a field – like
which is a three hour journey by speedboat.
If you do choose a Maldives Seaplane Transfer, then remember…
- Take your swimwear, sunglasses, sun lotion and flip flops in your hand luggage as your main luggage will arrive by boat!
- Don’t forget your camera for some wonderful aerial shots of the islands.
- Remember to keep your camera with you as on the seaplane hand luggage is stowed to the rear of the aircraft, not under the seat or overhead.
How To Book Your Seaplane Transfer
If you’ve already booked your holidays in the Maldives and haven’t chosen the seaplane option, it’s not too late to change your mind. Once you arrive at Malé you can ask about the seaplane transfers at the respective desks of the Maldivian Air Taxi and Trans Maldivian Airways. The services are largely identical, with both flying DHC-6 Twin Otter seaplanes that take around 10 passengers.
