The underwater world of aaaVeee Nature’s Paradise
Not many resort islands are blessed with good house reefs worthy of diving, but Dhoores is one exception. The unexplored reef is a heaven for wall divers. Being an unexplored region, the reef has not been dived much which has certainly made its mark. The caverns and overhangs are crowded with colourful sponges, soft corals and a variety of hard corals. There are many swim-through inside the caverns that make it ideal for divers to explore this beautiful house reef. The pelagic life is also worthy of attention as plenty of fish are found both at deep and shallow areas of the reef. Whether you are an experienced diver or a beginner, a dive to the house reef will definitely be worth a try. The reefs around her are no exception. The combination of a great house reef and many nearby reefs makes aaaVeee Nature’s Paradise a perfect concoction for divers of all levels.

You can either opt to ride alone or with a guide. We have special areas around our beautiful island environment especially allocated for jet ski rides.
Want to try something unique, then head to the water sports centre and sign up for a para sailing session. This is one of the best water sports activities to try. See the beautiful coral reefs and the islands from above with your own eyes. Para sailing will allow you to see the islands and reefs from low elevation that will take your breath away. It is equivalent to flying – but with nothing in between your eyes and the surrounding environment. Even flying on a seaplane will not get you this low. It is something that every adventure-lover should experience at least once.
Canoes and kayaks are a great way to kill some time in the water that is also a good exercise. Burn some calories while enjoying the beauty of the surrounding sea. We have single and dual person canoes. Go alone or take your loved one and spend some quality time alone.
Banana boat ride
This is another exciting activity for the fun-loving adventurer. Experience this fun activity alone or with a group. It is an intensive activity and so, be ready to get wet and make some noise as banana boat rides are fun the bumpier it gets.
