Well it's booked!!

Bandos 19th May. Our third time back to the Maldives and third different island.

We're taking our little one who will be 22 months by then and I'll be finishing off my PADI OW whilst there. Stopping off in Dubai for a couple of days to help break up the flights for Henry, but am dreading the almost back-to-back (bar the1 hour change over) on the way home!!

Gonna be unlike any other Maldives trip now we have to consider more than just me and 'er indoors but cannot wait.

Weather may be a bit hit n miss, but I'll be in the water for a couple of days so will be wet anyhow!

Just wanted to share! ;)

I bet he'll love it. Didn't you write on another thread that he was a Maldives honeymoon baby?

Not a honeymoon as such (we're not married) but yes, he came back with us...

Can't wait til he's old enough to really appreciate it, but chances are that'll be the next time we can afford it (or not as the case may be given the way the prices are increasing!).

Either way we're itching to get back and it can't come soon enough!

Bandos was our sons first island - nearly 6 years later he still speaks about it !

I passed my ow at Bandos and have my certificate proudly displayed! Great dive centre.

If they still have the parachute thing (forgotten what you call it!) pulled by the speedboat you really should try that and take your camera for great aerial shots, I did this tandem with my son - he was 4 years old and was singing powerranger songs at the time - priceless memories - your little un still abit young! but I am sure you will really enjoy it.

Zuhair who worked at the watersports at the time now works for bestdives and he remembered us a couple of years later and has now also taught our boy to waterski.

you will have a wonderful time.....

Glad to hear you are taking the little one for his first taste of paradise, be really interested in what you think of the island as it'e one that pops up with some great prices!

Yeah it came to mind as it ticked all our boxes and price was a bonus.

Her indoors wants speedboat transfer in case there are any issues with our little one that the onside doc can't.

I want a very good dive outfit for my OW cert and possibility of baby sitting in case we want a couple of drinks together one night.

Will have to see how it all adds up....!!

Oh and Cassie, parasailing! ;)
