As all transfers take place at sea it is recommended that sensible shoes be worn during transfers. Occasionally it may be necessary to transfer from the speedboat or seaplane to a local boat called “dhonis” to allow entry and exit from the resort. In cases of bad weather or if international flights arrive late night or depart very early in the morning, it may be necessary to overnight at the airport hotel or a resort close to the airport at the appropriate cost. Timings given in each resort description may vary substantially with sea conditions and the type of boat used. During unsettled weather (particularly May to July) sea conditions may on occasion be rough.
