Try your hand at traditional fishing

Fishing has always been an important part of Maldivian life. While more modern methods have now been adopted, the traditional way of hand line fishing without nets has been passed through generations and is still used now. This is a sustainable way to catch fish and safeguard the delicate marine ecosystem at the same time. Most resorts will offer guests the chance to try a traditional fishing excursion. Head out in the afternoon in a traditional dhoni boat, and try your hand at hand line fishing the local way.
