    1. There was no orientation of any kind when we boarded the Dhoni. There should have been a safety orientation covering information such as the location of life jackets on the Dhoni, walking safely on the boat in rough waters, emergency procedures. 2. The... Read more

    World Expeditions commented on this review
    Dear Thomas, Thank you for joining us in the Maldives. It has taken a little more time than expected to research the matters raised with our local partner and the dhoni captain in the Maldives as well as some of your fellow group members. This has allowed us to appraise the circumstances from as many angles as possible. With this, we are now in an appropriate position to address the issues raised in your feedback. • We utilise several different dhonis on this trip and the captain/crew for each dhoni is different. A standard orientation and safety briefing should be mandatory at the start of each trip. We thank you for bringing this to our attention; we have reiterated to our local operator that this briefing must always be undertaken by the dhoni captain/crew at the start of each trip. • This trip is usually unescorted and does not have a separate guide; generally the Captain or a Crew member will act as the guide. Trip descriptions can always be improved upon, and this is something that we are continuously endeavoring to achieve. Our trip literature has now been amended. • We were surprised about your comment about diesel fumes as this has not been brought to our attention previously nor mentioned by any of your fellow group members. The boat owners have been notified and will take any necessary action required. • We do mention in our trip literature that the cruising routine will vary from day to day, and the itinerary is subject to change due to any natural circumstances beyond our control. Unfortunately the beach barbeque could not be held due to bad weather, and the crew had to make an alternative plan by arranging to have a special barbecue dinner on board instead. We have requested our local operator to ensure that the dhoni captain/crew communicate any changes in itinerary and the reasons why to our travellers. • Your itinerary visited the local islands of Fulidhoo and Felidhoo, with local music (bodu beru) arranged at Fulidhoo. • Garbage in the Maldives, as well as the world’s waterways and beaches, is an ongoing environmental concern. With over 1.4 million visitor arrivals, the Maldives government is struggling with this problem, in addition to rising ocean levels inundating the archipelago. Government authorities, resort operators and dhoni boats are trying to do their bit by using reusable bottles instead of plastic bottles and implementing environmental initiatives. It is disappointing that your enjoyment of the uninhabited islands was marred by this. We are continually working on initiatives to do our part to combat this issue, with our local operator and Responsible Tourism Manager engaging in frequent dialogue and action. • Finally at USD1290 (or CAD1590) per person for a 6-day fully inclusive trip on a traditional dhoni, we believe that this trip represents excellent value for money. • We are pleased to hear that overall you graded the trip 4 out of 5 and thank you again for taking the time to share your thoughts following the trip. Kind regards - the team @ World Expeditions

    The stunningly beautiful Maldives really can be affordable for anyone. A week spent on a traditional Dhoni, snorkeling on 2 reefs each day, sunbathing on the deck, relaxing - pure bliss. The water is turquoise and crystal clear. The sea life is abundant,... Read more
