Scattered like strings of pearls in the Indian Ocean, the atolls which comprise the Maldives are some of the most beautiful in the world. Perfect beaches, thousands of uninhabited islands dotted with just coconut palms and intensely coloured coral reefs have made the Maldives a top destination. The crystal clear water is the focus of activities: swimming, snorkelling, paddling, diving, surfing. Why not rowing? Following up on the successful FISA Development Rowing Tour – Maldives 2015, this trip continues the exploration of rowing in this tropical paradise, spending a week exploring the North and South Huvadhoo Atolls. Support the growth of the Rowing Association Maldives and local clubs through rowing tourism.
