The Maldives is one of the top five destinations in the world for dolphin watching. It is home to more than 20 dolphin species. If you want to see these lovable, marine creatures, you can schedule a dolphin cruise provided by most of the resorts. The year-round tropical weather makes the cruise easier and more comfortable. If you ride on a traditional Maldivian dhoni, a sailboat running on motors, you will see the dolphins swimming and frolicking in the water right next to your boat.
