Transfers to resorts in the Maldives are by seaplane, speedboat, or domestic flight and speedboat. Resorts closest to the airport are accessed by speedboat and speedboats run 24-hours a day. Resorts that are outside of speedboat range are accessed via seaplane. Seaplanes only fly during daylight hours so if your international flight arrives after 5:00 PM you will be required to overnight at the Airport Hotel before transferring out to your resort the following morning. The most remote resorts are accessed via a domestic flight and then a speedboat ride. Domestic flights also run 24 hours a day.
