Cruise ships dock at Male Sea Port, on the capital city of Male, Maldives. This is not a deep-water harbour, so ships anchor offshore and the passengers are transferred either via ferries of tenders. The harbour is at the north end of the island and is minutes from the city walking distance. There are shops and restaurants, ATMs, banks, post office, internet cafes all right outside the harbour. You could easily walk through the whole city, it’s only 5.8 sq. km in size. Taxis are cheap and regular and there is a public bus system as well. The Airport is about 40 min away by ferry, as it is situated on a separate island. From the port it is also possible to pick inexpensive ferries to nearby islands, inhabited by locals.
