Rasdhoo is served by speed launch from Malé on all days of the week excluding Fridays, departing from Malé to Rasdhoo at 4pm and Rasdhoo to Malé at 7:30am. The cost is $40 per person and best booked by your guesthouse. Launches depart from “Petrol Jetty” in Malé, and you need to budget 90 minutes from touchdown to speed launch departure, so flights arriving before 2:30pm will allow you to catch a speed launch transfer on the same day. For departures, book a flight taking off after 10:30am, when travelling back by speed launch.
