From Velana International Airport, it takes 1 hour 45 minutes (82 Kms) to reach Bodufolhudhoo via speed boat ferry which makes two voyages daily between Bodufolhudhoo and Male' or the airport. The island is very conveniently located near two resorts - Nika Island Resort, Gangehi Resort - a deserted picnic island, and another local island, Mathiveri.

Dive schools on the island can organize half-day or full-day dive trips, and provide dive certification to beginners. South Ari Atoll, which is about 2 hours by speed boat is famous for dive spots and whale-shark spotting. Half-day and full-day excursions can be organized through Casa Paguro. We also offer Manta snorkeling trips, dolphin excursions and many more. Close to home, the house reef of Bodufolhudhoo is a thriving underwater garden with plenty of fishes, turtles, sharks, rays and colorful soft coral. It is indeed a snorklers' paradise. Kayaking, canoeing, wind surfing and other recreational activities are available on the island. The bikini beach is just a short walk from Casa Paguro. Bodufolhudhoo is small and has few tourist facilities. Its people are warm and welcoming.
