SeaBob-ing in the Indian Ocean

Love Jet-Skis, but want to be closer to the action? Well SeaBobs are your chance to do just that (popularized by James Bond). SeaBobs are available for rent at various Maldives hotels; I was able to experience the joys of using one at the W Retreat and Spa, Maldives. Just like a jet-ski, users can skim the surface of the water while keeping their body parallel to the water surface and almost gliding over it. An added benefit of SeaBobs is that you are able to take them underwater by simply changing the angle of your body in relation to the surface of the water, it’s use is very intuitive. You can use SeaBobs to get further and also see more while you are at. Using the SeaBobs at the W allowed me a chance to visit an outer donut reef and enjoy its bird’s eye view and glide around it. I highly recommend this leisure sport to even those who don’t usually swim or snorkel.
