Nowhere is more keenly tied to the sea than the Maldives. With 1,200 islands over 35,000 square miles of Indian Ocean, this tropical nation is more than 99% water.

The remaining 1% comprises a scattering of charter-friendly coral atolls, each with a saltwater lagoon hemmed in by a circular reef and inhabited by the world’s most spectacular marine life. From huge pods of dolphins to whale sharks, sperm whales, manta rays and hammerheads, a wildlife tour here is not about searching; it’s merely about opening your eyes.

With its astonishing oceanic backdrops, the Maldives is a tropical yacht charter like no other.

Malé, the capital city, is unlike anywhere else in the Maldives. It comprises a mighty ring of seawalls, containing a tightly packed high-rise cityscape, cut through with a network of narrow streets and charged with the fractious clatter and bustle of an authentic 24-hour hub. To provide Maldive-style relief from this densely populated cauldron of activity, there is an artificial beach on the east of the city, which provides a venue for watersports and carnivals as well as a cooling summer swim.
