Flying on one of Maldivian Air Taxi seaplanes in Maldives is one of the many ultimate experiences that the Maldives has to offer.
TAXI PLEASE !
Could you please bring me to a sandbank ?
Of course I can! Anywhere you wish…
If you go to Maldives, you will probably have the chance to fly with one of them as they are mainly used as transfers to bring passengers to the many remote resorts of the archipelago.
Welcome on board of one of the most exciting “taxi” in World….the Twin Otter seaplane. Please be aware : you are about to live an extraordinary experience.
Flying on board of a seaplane in Maldives is one of the many ultimate experiences that the destination has to offer.
If you go to Maldives, you will probably have the chance to fly with one of them as they are mainly used as transfers to bring passengers to the many remote resorts of the archipelago. But while all close-by Resorts of North and South Male Atoll provide speed-boat transfers, most of the luxury ones also propose seaplanes to comply with the exigences of their guests.
Flight duration can be as short as 10/15 minutes for the closest hideaway until 1H15 mns to reach one of the most far away resort, Beach House Manafaru, located in the most Northern Maldivian Atoll of Haa Alifu.
If a transfer by seaplane can not be schedule during your holidays, because of your budget – average price for a seaplane round-trip transfer can reach up to app 500 USD/325 £ per person or because the resort simply does not provide it, you might still have a chance to experience it by booking a photo-flight excursion available at your resort. Departures are organized directly from the resort itself or after a transfer by boat to Male Airport.
Do not forget to ask your travel agent if the excursion is organized by your favorite resort ! The price of this excursion will vary according to your resort with a starting price at +/- 120 USD par personne for app.20 minutes flight. Note : a minimum of participants will be required ( 10/11 pers) to be effective.
If budget is not a problem, you should then go for a private transfer or photo-flight.
A Private photo flight will surely make you live an extraordinary time.
Anything will be possible…like anchoring on a desert sandbank for example !

Is there any other option to transfer to dhuni kohlu island? I heard the seaplane tickets are more expensive than our 6days holiday. So if the seaplane is our only choice to get there i would probably give up from coco palm resort.
Hello! I was told by resorts that they cannot confirm my seaplane timing until the night before I depart. Is that true?? It seems rather disorganised!
It is TRUE !
Unfortunately seaplane Cies are sending the all schedule the night before only 🙁

But at the end, don’t worry everything is super well organized from resorts towards transfers !

The best is to contact the resorts scheduled during you trip to the Maldives.
Everything depends on your itinerary.
2 Companies handle the seaplane flights : Maldivian Air taxi and Trans Maldivian Airways.
Both fly to different resorts.
Hope this help you a bit,

Seaplanes are usually booked according to your stay. The best is to ask for a transfer back directly with your resort.
