Excursions with TGI Maldives Sangeli

TGI Maldives provides several types of excursions, whether you want to relax on a deserted sandbank or go snorkeling and diving to explore the abundant marine life around the atoll. Staying at Sangeli you will also discover fantastic snorkeling right at your doorstep, with an abundant fish life and sea turtles.

Snorkeling

Snorkeling Lessons

If you have always dreamt of snorkeling but do not feel confident enough to start on your own, join our experienced guides for a snorkeling lesson. You will practice in the shallow waters of the lagoon, to get comfortable with the equipment and learn the proper techniques you need to know for a fun and safe adventure. During your training, you will be able to see reef fishes, such as surgeon fish, butterfly fish and sweetlips, and if you are lucky probably also rays and turtles.

Guided House Reef Snorkeling

We offer guided snorkeling tours of Sangeli house reef, for those who don’t feel comfortable to snorkel without a guide or simply want to get orientated with our house reef.

Night Snorkeling

Our night snorkeling takes place on Sangeli house reef, a short ride by dhoni from the resort. You will experience the change in life on the reef and have the chance to see sleeping fishes as well as other interesting reef inhabitants which only come out at night. Our snorkeling guide will teach you how to use underwater light and make sure you do not miss the marine night life.

Turtle Snorkeling Excursion

If swimming with turtles is in your bucket list, do not miss our Turtle Snorkeling Excursion, offering a great chance to experience turtles in their natural habitat. Turtle Snorkeling Excursion is a 3-hour excursion in the morning, including one snorkeling site.

Half Day Snorkeling Excursion

If you are a good swimmer and a fish lover, we offer a half day snorkeling trip to two nearby reefs to experience a great biodiversity of fish and corals. Our snorkeling guide will show you the natural abundance of marine life surrounding Sangeli. If you think you are not ready or confident enough for a snorkeling excursion, join our Snorkeling Lesson first.

Diving Trips

Diving in the Maldives is a must! Our dive center offers a 2 boat dive trip in the morning and a 1 boat dive trip in the afternoon. All our boat dives are guided by our diving instructors, who will guarantee your safety and help you discover the underwater wonders of the Indian Ocean.

Dolphin Cruise

Join our relaxing dolphin cruise and search for pods of joyful spinner dolphins. Try your luck and come with us to see the most amazing animals in the sea. Make sure you have a camera to take a picture of those graceful creatures while they are spinning or doing other acrobatics.

Starry Night

Come and experience the beauty of a clear Maldivian evening where the night sky is simply bursting with millions of glittering stars and there is no light pollution. Lay back on the top deck of one of our traditional dhonis and simply relax while enjoying the amazing starry sky.

Sandbank Excursion

Another wonderful way to explore the Maldives is to visit a deserted sandbank. The Sandbank Excursion includes a snorkel trip to a nearby reef and a visit to a deserted sandbank. Once at the sandbank, you can either go for a swim in the shallow lagoon water, snorkel around the colorful reefs or simply relax and enjoy the warm sun on the beach. Before returning to the boat, don’t forget to take some pictures, sandbanks are the perfect backdrop for some incredible photos!

Romantic Sunset Cruise

Join our relaxing and romantic cruise on a dhoni to enjoy the sunset with your loved one on the open deck. With a bit of luck you may even see dolphins swimming around the boat.
