Furthermore, it is highly recommended that you have a minimum of two unused pages in your passport to facilitate the placement of essential stamps and immigration paperwork upon both arrival and departure from the country.

Things to know before departure:


No vaccination is required for travellers coming to Maldives from Europe.
However, each participant should take care of this aspect in order to enter the country.


Any field activity presents risks and dangers, and there are some basic rules to be observed in order to minimise them. Adhering to the buddy system is imperative, in particular in aquatic environments: teams will be organized, and within each team, designated pairs will collaborate closely to ensure safety and support throughout the activity.

Accomodation and Meals

The accommodation is organised at the Centre, in multiple rooms with bathroom, full board (breakfast, lunch and dinner). Sheets and towels are provided. The food is prepared according to the local customs and consists, for the most part, of fish, chicken, rice and vegetables prepared in different ways. Special dietary requirements and allergies must be reported at the time of registration.


The air temperature is around 28-29°C. The weather is always pleasant, even during the rainy months . Please note that most of the day will be occupied by field activities, seminars and exercises, it is, therefore, advisable to wear comfortable sportive clothes. It is recommended to avoid too skimpy clothing, as the island of Magoodhoo is not a tourist destination and local costumes are those of an Islamic country.


For field activities in the sea it is necessary to have, in addition to a bathing suit and a towel, the following equipment: mask, snorkel, fins (and booties if needed). It is possible to rent snorkelling equipment on-site, depending on size and availability. Please notify us in advance if you require any specific equipment to ensure its availability.
