How to Reach Maafushi Island
Maafushi Island is amongst the biggest and most popular islands in the Maldives. Situated around 27 kms away from the Male in Kaafu Atoll, this island covers an area of approximately 1270 x 265 m and is in elongated form. This place is just perfect to have lots of fun activities and taste some exotic delicacies. It is quite easy to get to this island. The journey starts by taking a flight to the Male International Airport, which is also known as Velana International Airport.
From the airport, there are two options available to reach Maafushi island: by Speedboat or by Ferry Service. Speedboat is usually preferred by the tourist as it takes lesser time and is more readily available. However, travel via ferry is way cheaper.
How to reach Maafushi Island via Speedboat?
From the Male International Airport, one can easily take a direct speedboat to the Maafushi Island. It is always recommended to book a speedboat prior to avoid any sort of inconvenience. It is can be easily done by dropping a mail to the service provider. Usually, a good number of rides are available every day from morning to evening. The availability of seats, timings and fare can be easily checked on their respective websites. Typically, it takes around 45 to 50 minutes to reach Maafushi island via speedboat.
How to reach Maafushi Island via Ferry?
For those on a budget holiday, ferry is undoubtedly a better option. From the Male International airport, one needs to take a ferry or a speedboat to Male island where the ferry terminal is located. The ferry ride to Male island will cost around one dollar. It takes 10 minutes to reach the terminal. However, traveling via speedboat demands a double amount ($2 approx.) but it takes just 4 minutes to reach the next location.
After reaching Male island, one can take a taxi to Jetty 1 or the ‘Maafushi Ferry’. This taxi ride costs nearly $2 and takes another 10 minutes to reach the ferry point. From the jetty, one can easily take a ferry service to Maafushi island that cost $3 per person and takes a traveling time of nearly 90 minutes. Since, ferry can’t be booked online, one need to reach here, an hour prior, to purchase the tickets. Please note that the ferry is not available on Fridays and no food and water will be accessible on the board.

Trip to MaldivesExcellent experience and seamless booking process made our visit memorable. Very Happy with the co-ordination efforts from agent. Almost every moment
Trip to MaldivesI came to know about Krafting Experiences through travel triangle. Right from the beginning, krafting experiences helped me to find the package which I wanted according to my customization. While booking the rooms, I was given the choice to select the rooms of my liking. My trip to Maldives was for 4 N 5 D in Olhuveli resort & spa with All inclusive package. The trip was to worth it. I had selected the deluxe room for 1st 2 days & I opted for Jacuzzi water villa for the remaining trip, but due to unavailability, I did not get that. Than the Director Mr.Jitendra had called me up and suggested me to go for grand water villa & I am very grateful that he suggested me the same. The Grand water villa was opened on the same day when I was to be shifted to the new room. I was the first customer to be in it & experience the heaven. Hence I am thanking from the bottom of my heart to Ms.Aasiya, Mr.Haider & Mr.Jitendra for making my honeymoon trip memorable. Just a day before leaving to Maldives, Mr. Jitendra called me and reminded of all the necessary things & documents which needed to be carried with me & also made a Whatsapp group for me in case if i face any issues over there, which I did not during the stay at Olhuveli resort as the services from Olhuveli were outstanding.!! Surely in future I will be contacting to krafting experiences for different trips.
Trip to MaldivesAwesome trip arrangements by DS Tours .. Thnks for the scervice and arrangements.will surely recommend. Had a great journey and memories in Maldives. Great Resort SunIsland
Trip to MaldivesExperience was not at all good. There was a communication gap between resort and your team. we landed to male from mumbai when we arrived to male the reservation team at counter no. 16 said that the youngistan traveler didn't informed them about the flight details. so they had booked the flight at 23.58pm at night. from male airport we approached to the local agent of sun island. when we reached sun island the team said that the booking is been done as per flight details received that is 23.58pm the local flight details. but then the resort team helped us to stay there and offered the 3night water villa. The youngistan traveler didn't informed the resort that we are honeymooners. So they are unable to give us a freebies which we are supposed to get. Very irresponsible job by youngistan Traveler not at recommendable. Thanks to the Sunisland team that they helped us to reach and enjoy the holidays.

Trip to MaldivesHad good travel experience overall.. Regarding travel agent there was lot of self followups required, had to pay extra bucks from pocket apart from package though it was promised you need not to pay anything extra and all hotel charges are included. There was no response once booking was done.
