How much?

Hi

Was wondering about how much money to take to chaaya reef? We plan to do 3,4 or 5 trips?

Thanks in advance

You sign everything to your room - and most people pay with a credit card on the last evening.

Ellaidhoo excursion details from October 2012 included:

1/2 day Sand Bank picnic for 2 $244.86 per couple

Visit Hangnaameedhoo local island 1/2 day min 8 people dhoni $66.46 speedboat $87.45 pp

Island hopping - Rasdhoo and Mathiver 1/2 day min 8 people $87.45 pp speedboat

Island hopping - Diggri & Hangnaameedhoo full day min 8 people incl BBQ by dhoni $87.45 pp

Island hideaway full day picnic lunch by dhoni $425.60 per couple

Sunset fishing min 4 people by dhoni $54.80 pp

Night fishing ( 9 - 11pm) min 4 people by dhoni $64.13

Big game fishing (05.30 to 07.30 am) for 2 people by speedboat $326.48 per person

There were also special snorkelling half day trips laid on if whalesharks were spotted nearby in season.

You will need to add 8% GST (rising to 12% later this year) and I think a 10% service charge on top.

These are the prices from 2012 and they didn't change at all between March and October that year. I am back there in 2 weeks time and will try to get some up to date details unless someone else comes along with the info in the meantime.

As Lyn says you sign for everything and pay at the end of your stay by credit card or cash - you really only need cash for tips.
