Marriott's website says that the seaplane runs between 6am and 330pm....so if your stay starts on Sunday 3pm checkin and you take a 8am transfer and arrive at the resort at 9am will they let you check in  or you will have to wander the island for 6 hours?

Ask your resort about a complimentary tour of Male. We were offered one on our return (checked out at 11AM and our flight out of MLE wasn't til late PM). It was fascinating- I've never been to India but I'm assuming this is a little taste of that crazy motorcycle hustle and bustle.

Agreed, its fascinating even if you've been to 3rd world countries.

Yup did the same they very friendly to tourists, and we were there Ramadan so it was really cool to see the transition from fasting to eating

Depends on the resort. I remember a hotel shuttle transferring us to the lounge. Would never have found the place on our own.

Regardless, you should drop your bags at the lounge first. They might be able to transport you to the ferry to Male from there.

Once you leave the seaplane area you can only return if you have a departing flight on a seaplane.
