The Maldives has some incredible surf. Ranging from challenging barrels to mellow cruisy waves, there is something for everyone.
Forget about the camps, resorts & other charters where you stay with 10 or 20 other surfers. Experience a private surf charter in the Maldives aboard a luxurious 46ft catamaran.
We caters to small private groups from 2 people up to 6 people. This means you're way more likely to score! And you're not at risk of getting stuck on a trip with a wave-hog or other guests you don't get along with. Just you and your friends or family, surfing picture perfect Maldivian reef breaks.
Your skipper is a keen surfer and will be able to get you to the rights spots for you in the current swell and wind conditions. The advantage of our Maldives surf charters being flexible is that you can dodge the crowds and hopefully find waves to yourselves. Go surf hunting throughout the atolls.
Surf trips aboard on our catamaran are not only about the surf. We sail along at 6 knots on average, so enjoy the leisurely cruise from break to break, throw a line in the water and maybe hook up lunch or dinner. Stop along the way to snorkel the reef's and explore the deserted islands.
Sail and surf the popular North & South Male atolls, including Meemu in the Central atolls. Start and finish in Male. This area is covered in our daily rates, and no fuel surcharge is incurred. If you are time limited, and only have a week to surf, then we recommend you stick to the North/South Male atolls to maximize surf time. If you have 8-10 days free, then your Maldives surf charter can head down to Meemu as well.
Extended Cruising Package:
Sailing further south to the less crowded Central Atoll region of Dhaalu, Thaa and Laamu atolls is possible, but due to the distances that need to be covered you would need to allow for at least a 12 day trip in order to sail from, and return to, Male. There are some hidden gems in the Central atolls. If you are keen to access the Central Atoll surf zone consider our Sail/Fly and Explorer packages, which entail less travel time and more surf time.
Sail & Fly Package:
Want to mix it up? You can choose to fly out from Male to one of the domestic airports of the central/southern atolls to meet the yacht and then sail back to Male, surfing a wide array of spots en route. Similarly, you can choose to sail from Male southwards, and then fly back from the nearest domestic airport at the end of your trip. Thus your trip will either start or end in Male. We recommend 8-10 days or more for this option. Domestic airfares are approx $200 return. The Surf/Fly package allows you access to the less crowded wave zones.
Surf anywhere in the Maldives. Totally flexibility to chase the waves. Don’t waste time cruising to the right zones. The skipper will liaise with you ahead of time to discuss where the surf will be best, then fly in to the closest domestic airport to meet the yacht. Cruise with us following the swell, and at the end of your trip fly out from wherever the nearest domestic airport is back to Male for your international flight. Having no fixed start and end points to the trip ensures you can be in the right place at the right time. – and also means even if you only have a week off to surf, no problem – you can still access these less crowded zones.
