By the way, one reason why many staff members have now moved from Conrad to WA is that when they worked at Conrad there was no way on or off the island except by seaplane, and sometimes it was hard to get a seat on the seaplanes, so they might only leave the resort once a month or so.

Working at WA, the can go home to Male by speedboat when they finish work or when they have a day off.

There does seem to be some kind of "public ferry" speedboat service that staff members use to commute from Male to the resorts.

This raises the question of "Could guests who don't want to pay $700++ for a round trip yacht transfer use the same type of speedboat that staff uses to travel from Male to the resort?"
