Arrival and weather conditions
We recommend flying to the Velana International Airport, as it is the most easily accessible to foreigners and is located in Hulhulé, which is next to the capital of the Maldives. From here, you can easily travel by a boat or ferry to neighbouring islands or hop on another flight to reach more distant islands, all depending on your itinerary and port of departure. Be aware that most of the travel between islands is done via boat, so you are already at an advantage when you charter a luxury yacht in the Maldives!
Monsoon season in the Maldives occurs from May to October. December and January tend to be the most popular months to charter in the Maldives, due to the weather conditions and holiday season; however, we find the best time to charter in this case is just before the start of the monsoon season, so April, as there are fewer tourists and less rainfall than during the summer months. Just after the end of monsoon season can be great too, in November, for example, due to fewer tourists before the holidays and still ideal weather conditions. Due to the tropical atmosphere, the sun is consistently shining and the average temperature during the dry season is around 28°C. Perfect weather to plunge into the ocean or lounge in the sun chairs on the deck of your luxury yacht!
Why charter in the Maldives?
A tropical paradise in a postcard setting is what awaits you if you charter a luxury yacht in the Maldives. Uncover unexplored and virtually untouched islands, scuba dive in coral reef systems with diverse and ample life or immerse yourself in the local culture of the Maldivian people. Unwind and relax away from society and isolate your mind from stress and worry on-board your boat and experience the utmost comfort and bliss. The possibilities are endless when it comes to activities in the water or on land. Nowhere could be a more ideal destination for a complete getaway. Let the sound of the ocean wash over your senses and leave you perfectly at peace when you rent a luxury yacht in the Maldives.

Scuba, snorkel, submarine?
Grab your scuba gear and dive in! The Maldives are home to over 2,000 different species of fish and over 21 species of whales and dolphins, many brightly coloured or exotic, for you to enjoy.
