Penguin semi-submarine Lily Beach

Penguin Semi-Submarine

See the coral reef and the abundant marine life around Lily Beach without even getting wet!

Penguin is a semi-submersible vessel that allows you to step down into the hull and admire the real-life aquarium through glass windows. As such, it is perfect for those of you who are not comfortable in the water, but still want to see the Maldives’ major highlight – life in its ocean. The roof of the semi-submarine is above the water surface, allowing you to also enjoy stunning views of Lily Beach from the viewing area on the Penguin’s deck.

The Penguin excursion is one of the most popular activities at Lily Beach as it provides a chance for everyone to peek below the ocean – children, honeymooners and elderly people alike repeatedly review it as spectacular.

The trip runs throughout the day and is accompanied by a knowledgeable guide.

Drinks and snacks are provided on board.

30-minute and 60-minute excursions are available at day- and nighttime, with special rates available for couples and groups. For the ultimate private experience, combine Penguin with a snorkelling safari!
