Club Med Kani Maldives - Romantic Cruise into the Sunset

Our boat sped towards open sea, bouncing off the waves.

“There ! There! Dolphins!” the lookout man at the helm of the boat shouted and pointed to the left.

Immediately, the boat took a sharp left turn, speeding towards the direction the lookout has pointed at.
Everyone on board edged forward, excited and trying to catch a glimpse of the wild dolphins that were said to be aplenty and would gaily swim alongside tourist’s boats, as if toying with us. And yes, there in front of us a school of dolphins racing through the waters and as our boat drew near, they were swimming alongside us and occasionally underneath us. It was truly an experience of a lifetime for me, seeing this magnificent and reported to be very smart creatures so near and so free and not in captivity or trained to perform in shows and performances. 

Taking the sunset cruise at Club Med Kani Maldives is definitely an activity that one should not miss. Besides being able to view these wild dolphins up close, the sunset on a clear day is nothing short of magical.
What could be better than watching the sun slowly setting beyond a seemingly unending horizon among interesting clouds formation in equally stunning colours, with a glass of champagne in one hand, while the other holding the hand of your lover, and her hair occasionally brushes against your face, blown by the sea breeze.
We had wanted to do this when we were in Club Med Bali but unfortunately all the excursions were fully booked. Hence, when we were in Maldives, we made it a point to drop by the counter the very next morning after we arrived and got ourselves a place on the first boat that goes out that very evening.

And we were very fortunate because the skies were clear and the sunset simply mesmerizing. This are the moments in life that you would want to share with the one closest to you by your side, and Maldives is one place that gives you plenty of opportunity to do so.
So, if you are ever have the opportunity to travel to Maldives, take that cruise and I guarantee you that you will walk away with an unforgettable experience.
