Would you Prefer a Seaplane or Domestic Transfer to Far Away Resort Trips?

One of the biggest questions that many guests have when it comes to travelling to resorts is whether to choose seaplanes or domestic transfers. Although both modes of transportation offer the Maldivian scenic view, both are truly unique experiences. While some people might choose to fly to their resorts through seaplanes facilitated by Trans Maldivian Airways (TMA), Maldivian or Manta Air, for many, the domestic transfer is the better option. So, what’s the difference between these modes of transportation, and how do you make the choice between seaplane and domestic transfer?

Why Choose Seaplane Transfer?

For travellers who opt for the seaplane transfer, it might just be due to its truly unique aspect. While you can get on a flight to several destinations around the world, seaplane transfers are not as easily accessible. However, when it comes to the Maldives, seaplane transfers are one of the most common modes of transportation to your resort. Due to its unique nature, some travellers even opt to ensure that they are booking a resort that facilitates seaplane transfers. In addition to the. uniqueness, seaplanes also offer quick and easy access to your destination with amazing views. For many, just filming their seaplane arrival itself is an adventurous experience that they are getting while in the Maldives. As seaplanes operate a bit differently, you would be able to get a much closer view of the beautiful Maldivian islands.

Additionally, for VIP guests seaplane transfer also offers a personal touch that many travellers seek. One of the major benefits is the convenience when it comes to connecting you directly to your destination. Unlike domestic transfers, on seaplanes, you just need to get your luggage, passport and ticket and they’ll transport you right to the shores of your resort destination. Moreover, with seaplanes passengers are able to avoid the long crowds as the seaplane terminal is separated from the domestic and international airports. This also means that you will have more time to sit back and relax, and enjoy the amazing views of the beautiful terminal!

Why Domestic Transfers?

Although the seaplane might sound filled with adventure and excitement, for some, it domestic transfers all the way. According to PackThePJ’s, a travel blog, seaplanes can be quite noisy. Although the seaplanes offer ear plugs, for some the noise in addition to the heat can ruin the start of their trip. For this reason alone, passengers may prefer domestic transfers whether that is through speedboats or domestic flights. In the blog, PackThePJ’s also noted that the moment of landing, when the pilot tips down the plane was a very dsicering moment. As a lot of travellers from big cities are not used to landing on water or getting on seaplanes, this ‘feeling’ of motion sickness might come as a unique and foreign feeling. However, many of these travellers would not have these issues with domestic flights.

Some additional benefits of domestic flights might also include being able to carry more luggage. When it comes to seaplanes, depending on the capacity it might be difficult to haggle to bring more luggage. For domestic flights, however, it is oftentimes easy to just pay access luggage fees and have a hassle-free trip. Some of the bigger factors for domestic transfer also include the cheaper cost compared to seaplanes, comfort and convenience, as well as accessibility. Through Maldivian, Villa Air as well as Manta Air, passengers are able to connect not only to resorts but also to explore local islands.

Whether it is to a faraway resort or a nearby Maldives resort, for many passengers it’s all about the experience. So, are you a seaplane person or would you choose domestic transfers? If you’re planning to book your next trip with a seaplane transfer, here are some important facts you should know!
