Our arrival in Maldives in early July 2021. A beautiful sunny day during their wet season. Since our resort is a private island resort, the only way to get there is via the hotel’s private transport service.


Bandos had an easy booth to find right as we exited from picking up our baggage. They helped us with our luggage and took us onto our private boat within a few minutes.


We did have to wear these little life vests as we sat on the boat. The waters were a bit choppy due to the high winds. The waters are not always choppy, just comes down to the weather. If you see high winds, it will be choppy waters. It was the bumpiest boat trip we’ve ever experienced. Good thing we took our dramamine before our ride started.


The kids loved this experience.


The ride to Bandos Island is only 15 minutes.
