Location

Thulusdhoo island is located just 28 kilometers north of Male. It is the capital of Kaafu Atoll. Approximately, 1400 people live on the island. The size of Thulusdhoo is 700 and 400 meters (according to Google Maps). After the devastating tsunami that happened in 2004 on Rinbodhoo island, more than a half of the population had to move to Thulusdhoo, so the population of Thulusdhoo grew.

How to get there

Arrival by airplane

Please book your flight to arrive at Velana International Airport (MLE). Transfer from the airport is included. Vakaru Surf will pick you up from the airport.

All the international flights arrive at Velana International Airport (MLE), which is on an island of its own. Many holidaymakers arrive on chartered flights, but there are other scheduled services with Emirates, Qatar, Air Sri Lanka, and Air India.

Arrival by ferry / boat

Fast and efficient, these high-powered vessels (speed boats) can deliver you from the airport to Thulusdoo in just 25 minutes. “Speedboat ferries” now operate several times per day to the island at a set schedule and private speedboats can be organized for anytime night or day.

Vakaru Surf organize the best value boat at any given time to meet your needs, saving money and maximizing holiday time for you. Vakaru Surf endeavor to extend their customer service from the moment you touch down in the Maldives till the moment you hop back on your airplane.

Exceptionally affordable, the Thulusdoo ferry will get you from the island capital Male to Thulusdoo island in 85 minutes for just 3 USD. A small additional fee applies for large baggage but either way, this is top value.

The ferry moves at a respectable 13 knots and features very comfortable padded seats, a toilet, helpful staff, and an upstairs open air area where you can stretch out and have a sleep or watch the scenery pass by. Kept meticulously clean by the staff, the ferry is non-smoking and generally very comfortable.

The express trip departs Male at 3:30 p.m. sharp on Saturday, Sunday, Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday. On Fridays, the ferry departs Male at 10:30 p.m. On Tuesdays, there is a ferry that stops at several islands including Thulusdhoo, that departs Male at 2:30 p.m., departing from the ‘Villigili’ ferry terminal.

Ferry times can change at short notice due to public holidays or very bad weather. Vakaru Surf recommend you who are traveling by ferry to contact them, so they can ensure you have the most up to date ferry information.
