We provide seaplane transfers to our resort and the experience you will collect with just one ride will blow your mind away where you will be soaring like a bird above turquoise lagoons sparkling in the sun in no time. Flying low over the islands, you could see the shapes of the reefs and colors of the shallow water around the islands. Round circles of pristine white sand with centers of thick mangroves dotted the horizon as far as you could see. Sand bars and brilliant streaks of turquoise were stark contrasts to the deep blue of the Indian Ocean straight to the arrival jetty!.

Trans Maldivian Airways is an independent operator, which provides the resort with seaplane schedules in the evening prior to arrivals and departures. As such, all schedule timings are solely at the discretion of the Management of Trans Maldivian Airways.
(As per TMA FAQ): Trans Maldivian Airways advise that on most occasions your luggage will go along with you. However, there are very few occasions where luggage will arrive after you have been transferred due to the weight limitations on the aircraft. In such cases TMA will inform you before your flight departure and allow the passenger to carry necessary items from offloaded luggage (in a TMA souvenir bag). Please be assured that the luggage will be delivered to the destination on the next available flight on which there is space.
Due to the small size and weight limitations of the seaplane this makes the possibilty for oversized luagge to travel less reliable and is stricly subject to availability at the time of check-in to your flight. In such case, TMA requests customers to sign a disclaimer on the understanding and acceptance that such oversized luagge may or may not travel for this reason on the same flight, same day, or even at all. Therefore, there is no gauarentee that surfboards or oversized luagge will be able to succesfully transfer to the resort by seaplane. In such case, any lugagge that cannot travel to the resort can be safetly stored in secure airport lockers which are available to rent.
