Sophia Tutino Yachting pride ourselves in providing bespoke, unique and personalised services and we love to support other similar organisations – And that’s why we recently collaborated with Cookson Adventures – an industry shaking travel agent, who create unique, bespoke and adventure packed holiday itineraries and we asked them to put together a unique expert on Maldives. Here’s what they had to say…
“The Maldives’ piercing blue waters and pristine coral reefs have long been a hot-ticket for a beach getaway, but there’s so much more to explore — if you know where to look. With leading explorers Cookson Adventures at your side, dive in waters with eight times more reef fish than anywhere else in the Indian Ocean.
Together you can choose where to anchor, easily sailing to an uninhabited island to snorkel with instructors or enjoy a beach dinner in complete privacy, looking out to interrupted views of one of the planet’s most idyllic seascapes.
Your adventure will be tailored to each and every guest. Dive at the largest manta ray and whale shark feeding station known to exist—where hundreds could be circling in the currents at any one time—and meet scientists to monitor, tag and track these majestic creatures in areas usually o-limits to explorers.
Cookson’s specialists can also maroon your family on a deserted island with an expert survival guide, who will help you to build your own camp, fish with minimal supplies and survive overnight. There could always be luxury tents waiting for you on the side, should you wish…
Being one of the most stunning locations in the world with so much to do.. it’s obvious why we’ve seen so many people booking a charter for their winter holidays in the Maldives.”
Our favourite charter yacht this season in the Maldives is ASHENA! ASHENA is a 45.5m luxurious, classic motor yacht and is a perfect example of East meets West. ASHENA combines robust construction with a detailed and well planned design, creating a regal, decadent, homely ambience to on-board life which allows Ashena’s longstanding crew to deliver an exceptional level of service to guests. She is available for daily charters and cruises with up to 24 guests. She is also available for weekly charters and more and accommodates comfortably upto 12 guest in 6 well-appointed cabins.
