By Seaplane+Dhoni Ride Transfer from Male Airport

The first checkpoint for any traveler wishing to get to Filitheyo Island would be Male International Airport. Representatives would then guide you to get confirmation on the transfers, following which you may proceed to the AAA Hotels & Resorts lounge before you board the seaplane.

The seaplane transfer mode is available only between 6 am and 3 pm, and hence you might need to consider booking accommodation if your arrivals are beyond this timeframe. Passengers are required to check-in no later than 2 hours as per International airline policy.

The journey from Male International Airport (by seaplane) will be approximately 35 minutes long. Flying low over the islands, you could take a glimpse of the vibrant reefs and warm turquoise lagoons around the islands. This trip would be followed by a 15-minute traditional dhoni ride (traditional boat). You will now have reached the much-awaited, breathtaking holiday destination.
