Dhonis are the (modified) traditional Maldivian vessels. They are quite slow so they are only used for short distances: to go from the airport to Male, or in the resorts to go on day trips to nearby islands. Speedboats are used for transportation from the airport and your resort. Some are as big as yatchs!

Type: Ship/Boat
