... their dhoni's for a spinner dolphin cruise. We were told that there is a large colony living amongst these particular islands and they love to perform in front of the boats, so hopefully we get,and acrobatic welcome tonight.....well after the dolphin trek we were not disappointed! They were as playful as ever and treated us to some fin slaps, tail whacks and even some 360's! Amazing animals as always!
After we returned ...
I was sad but I know I will see Dad again soon. Our flight was leaving at 11pm.
It was a very long night and Mum and I were very tired.
We flew 4 hours to Kuala Lumpur but Mum said we lost some time because different countries have different times so we got there at 6am. We then had to wait 3 hours for our plane to Hong Kong. We flew another 4 hours to Hong Kong and got there at 1pm on Sunday. I was so tired!,
... signal to go faster. It was so much fun and I was screaming.
Then the guys asked if I would like to go on the wave rider board. It is a board that you lie on to start with and as the boat gets going you kneel on it. I decided to let mum go first and I rode in the boat. Mum was good on it. Dad thought then he would go next, he was not so good ...
... me. Mum says they are more scared of me than I am of them. The other night dad got a picture of all the fish jumping when they were being chased by baby tuna looking for their dinner.
Dad and I played Frisbee and I built a sensational sand castle, dad then accidentally stepped on it and I rebuilt it and this time it was sealed with wet sand.

Historical Traveler Reviews Maayafushi Island Resort North Ari Atoll
just arrived back from 2 weeks in the sun. apart from the very long and crampted flights to and from manchester - booked holiday 11 months ago and couldnt get into premier class - arrived at the island by seaplane on time.
This was our first visit to Maldives and we loved every minute. New Year celebrations were particularly good.
This was our second trip to the Maldives and we had two wonderful weeks covering Christmas and New Year.
This is the third island we have visited in the Maldives and without a doubt the best so far. The accomodation was fantastic and very clean. Our bungalow was 10 metres from the sea. The staff were very friendly and effecient. The beach is cleaned continually for leaves and debis. The food was varied and pleanty of it. The fish being the speciality and marvellous curries. Sometimes buffet style and sometimes table service. Christmas eve dinner was buffet style on the beach.
Just arrived back from Maaya 14th Nov.It was an excellent holiday on a wonderful island.We stayed in a beach bung,which was basic but very nice and cleaned twice a day,with your bed sheet made into lovely patterns each night you came back to your room.
Got back from Maayafushi last week after a fabulous 16 nights on the island. It was supposed to be 15 nights but that's Monarch airlines for you! If you can travel with anyone else, do so. We were delayed 21 hours (wonderful because we got an extra night on the island, but not for those arriving), then we had a further 5 hour delay and once in Gatwick we did not have a pilot to take us to Manchester. Not to worry though, we had a fab time before that. When we arrived, we were put in a beach bungalow, which was lovely, a little small, but with a beautiful location and great tree in the bathroom. Because they had over-booked rooms on our second week, we got a really good deal and moved into the water bungalows, 10 nights for the price of 7 $210 all in. Was really worth it, with veranda and steps straight into the ocean. The island itself was clean and well maintained, about 8 minutes to walk around. We chose to do nothing- reading, sleeping, snorkelling, eating and drinking was all we managed, but there is lots to do- canoeing, sailing, windsurfing, fishing, trips, diving courses are supposed to be excellent and very professional. The staff were superb, especially Jay in the coffee shop and Benny, Idrish and "Mr Bean" in the bar. Food was very good but never very warm. If you do want hot food, Jay will always warm up a pizza in the coffee shop. There was usually a good choice of food, except breakfast, but make sure you get there early on Maldivian night, as the buffet food runs out fast. Entertainment was dire, but we managed to ignore most of it with vodka and good conversation. Watch out for Christmas carols on bingo night!
We have just come back from Maayafushi and absolutely loved it. It really is a relaxing holiday and you have to go with the flow and appreciate that there is not much to do.
