Introducing the most technically advanced hydro-foot jets on the planet! Propelled by water and powered by adrenalin, “arise” from our calm lagoon and embark on unbeatable airborne acrobatics with our revolutionary underfoot jetboards. Our expert team is on hand to offer tips and training that will have you swivelling, spinning and doing 360s before you know it. There’s a pretty cool Landaa view from up there too!
No age restrictions apply – if you’re comfortable in deep water, we’re happy for you to experience the fluid, flying fun of JetBlades. Each 45-minute session begins with a brief orientation before hitting the water, with most first timers able to experience jet-flight of up to 2 metres.
We’re the first Resort in the Maldives to offer this incredible new water sport, produced by the makers of X-Jetpacks (also available at Landaa), so don’t delay booking your experience today!
Whizz above the ocean like a Marvel comic book hero with our brand new X-Jetpacks – the latest evolution in hydro-flight jetpack technology. Each 45-minute session includes beach training, which should enable pilots to reach a level of free flight (get completely out of the water). Put in a bit of practise and you could soon be flying up to 10 metres, completing Yaw turns, flying backwards and diving up to 5-metres underwater!
No age restrictions apply – if you can do a turtle roll in the water while wearing the Jetpack you’re eligible to have a go. We even offer shuttle flights for guests who require additional assistance (anything to have another go ourselves!)
Kitesurfing melds surfing, wakeboarding, wakesurfing and flying into a hassle-free freestyle, with huge potential for fast progression. Landaa’s clear safe lagoon extends for two kilometres without any obstructions, making it one of the best places in the Maldives to take to the skies. Book a private four-hour lesson with our resident experts or rent gear by the hour, depending on your experience. Fees apply.
Kites start from 2 sqm meters up to 19 sqm, with boards in all different sizes, directional and twin top. As long as wind conditions are favourable, lessons are available year-round. For experienced kitesurfers, bigger gusts are usually seen from November into January and between June and July.
The Seabob Cayago F7 is the world's fastest underwater scooter, programmable using an onboard computer to different depths and speeds depending on the rider’s capability. Bounce over the waves like a dolphin or free-dive down to experience the ocean like never before. A unique water sport that’s as easy as it is addictive! Fees apply.
Snorkelling is a fantastic experience for guests of all ages and swimming ability. Hover above vibrant corals and shoals of kaleidoscopic fish just steps from the shore thanks to our pioneering Reefscapers coral regeneration programme. Don a life jacket and learn in the shallow lagoon with one of our resident marine biologists or Recreation experts; borrow complimentary equipment and venture out by yourself; cruise by dhoni to a nearby coral reef on an escorted excursion in search of turtles; or venture out after dark with a member of our team for an exhilarating hour-long tour of the reef by night – prepare for some surprises! Snorkelling experience is required for night snorkelling and snorkel excursions.
Take to the waves – whatever your style! Our Mastercraft boat X55 is the perfect boat to get big air and master top tricks.
Use a paddle to move through the water while standing up on a surfboard. An excellent core workout and a great way to experience the lagoon’s marine life from a different viewpoint.
Take a jet ski for a spin in the lagoon; hitch a ride with one of our team; or embark on an adventure package for an in-depth exploration of the surrounding area – including the chance to find a dolphin or manta ray!
The ideal introduction for youngsters keen to try water skiing. Kneeboarding involves kneeling on the board at all time while being towed at a gentle speed.
A host of tubes and towables for exhilarating wave riding fun. The all-new Grandstand 2, a one-of-a-kind towable for two riders that allows multiple riding positions including the ability to stand up like a water skier.
