Friday - day off for ferries

On Friday, for most types of ferries - a day off, go only ferries between Male - Hulhumale, with a break for lunch. This means that if you arrive on Thursday, and not catch the ferry, you can get your island only on Saturday. The alternative is a high-speed boat, but the prices are very high, 0 USD for a short distance. The second factor - seasickness
