Hi all. Needed info on Sun Island Resort

I know of Sun Island resort providing its own transfers via domestic aircraft from the MALE international Airport. I wanted to know if we have an option of taking the TMA Seaplane to sun Island too. Really wanted my wife to have the areal view of Maldives to and fro Sun Island Resort.

Hello Bunty

You are correct that Sun owns FlyMe - nil seaplane transfers are now possible to Sun Island. The only way to take a seaplane would be to do some nights on another island nearby Sun for a couple of nights, take a speedboat transfer to Sun, and then catch their domestic flight back to Male when you depart.

Have fun

You get a similar view from domestic planes anyway they much the same size as seaplanes and don't fly very high or fast

IMHO, the view from the internal flight is ten times better than the seaplane. They do fly considerably higher. Although the flight to Sun will be extremely short, not at the altitude of say the flights that go to the southern atolls, and it will mostly be across the sea channel and it wouldnt get up to cruising altitude. Sit on the right hand side of the plane for best views coming in to land at S Ari.
