During our stay at Maafushivaru we joined the Sunset Cruise that the resort offers as an short and cosy excursion. From the main jetty, you board the Dhoni and go for a relaxing and beautiful ride between the islands nearby. While sitting of the dhoni-roof, you have a great view over the islands, the other resorts close by, with a glass of cold champagne in your hands. As we slowed down northeast of the island to watch the sky turn red-purple and listen to the sweet sound of small waves on the side of the boat, combined with the sound of hardworking camera shutters, a group of dolphins showed up and kept breaking the surface of the sea. In a matter of seconds all eyes turned towards the sight of dolphins and the sunset became secondary. We tried to capture both, and have now made this post, to share our experience with all of you. Heading back towards Maafushivaru after the sun was gone, the sky revealed its skills for chancing shades of red, orange, purple in a constant flow.
If you ever get the chance to try an Maldivian sunset cruise, do not hesitate to go right away. The colors are breathtaking and the sights will forever be embedded in your head as one of the most beautiful things you have ever seen.
