Resembling Arab dhows, dhonis are multipurpose handcrafted wooden Maldivian boats, traditionally built using coconut timber and predominately used by fishermen. Nowadays they are commonly used for excursions from resorts and make for a wonderful trip out to sea.

Sail to a deserted island or sandbank for some snorkelling and a picnic or take a romantic cruise at sunset, whilst perhaps spotting dolphins. Some resorts also offer fishing trips on a dhoni, where you can learn traditional fishing methods before enjoying your catch, specially prepared for you by the chef.
