Transfer from the airport.


Please, help me!

My husband and me have bought air tickets and reserved a room in Ranveli Village Maldives on 18 - 29 May period. They say that the transfer to the island by plane costs $354 per person. So we would like to reach the island by high-speed boat ourself. Is it possible? If so, how much approximately is it can cost?

Sorry for my English!

Thanks a lot,

The cheapest option is always to go with the transport arranged by the resort. It's a seaplane due to it's distance from the airport - to take a boat would mean a much longer journey. You probably could privately hire a speedboat to take you, but no doubt it would be far more expensive.

Agree with Coldilox - resort transfers are really the only option - whether by speedboat or seaplane (Ranveli is a seaplane only transfer). There is no local ferry option to a resort island and any private speedboat you might be able to hire will cost you substantially more.
