Water Sports & Dive Experiences

Local time


Water Sports

Speedboat-driven water sports are fun for the whole family, especially tubing, while leisurely pursuits such as sunset kayaking in a standard kayak or glass-bottomed boat is always a pleasant outing. Looking for more excitement? Jump on a jet ski and explore the open water around the resort (just watch out for turtles!). 

Board Sports
Stand Up Paddle Boarding

Sheltered by reefs, the waters surrounding The Standard are a boardrider’s dream. Enjoy the calm interior atoll location with a leisurely stand up paddle board cruise around the resort or if that’s too tame, get high with a kite surfing class.

Fun Dives & Courses
Every trip to the Maldives must include some time underwater, mingling with some of the world’s most diverse marine life. From introductory and children’s PADI courses to specialty instruction, including digital underwater photography and fish identification classes, there’s an aquatic experience for everyone. Suit up and slip into the peaceful and pellucid waters of the Maldives, including our pristine house reef, which is home to 98 types of coral that are home to over 220 species of marine life.
