Surfing and Paddling
Got a surfboard or stand up, the crew will make sure you are never too far away from those postcard-worthy waves you’ve always dreamed of.
During the last decade, surfing in the Maldives has attracted many surfers from all over the world. The same swells hitting Indonesia deliver the goods to the Maldives except that the latitude is a little higher and the SE exposure has less energy.
There are three main surfing areas;
- The North and South Male Atoll, the surf season runs from April to October during the South-West Monsoons. The bigger swells run from May to August with 2 to 8 ft waves on offer all season.
- Central Atoll standard waves are long and clean with size varying between 2 and 8ft as well. During southern hemisphere winter (April-October), it’s pretty much never flat.
- Southern Atolls right at the southern point of the Maldives are best for surf from February to April and from September to November, there are always waves in the area but the winds become very strong at other times of the year.
Fishing has always been the lifeblood of island nations and the Maldives is no different, this place has been dubbed the ‘fishiest’ places on the planet. Pelagic species are often the favourite target although there are a lot of reef and shallow water species that will give you a run for your money like Bonefish, Barracuda, Groper, Snapper and the king of fish, the Giant Trevally.
Cruising the deep waters along the outside of the reef Yellow fin Tuna, Dogtooth Tuna, Dolphin Fish, Wahoo, Sail Fish and Marlin all cruise these waters. If you want to fish make sure you bring plenty of your favourite lures.
Commonly charters begin in Male and ends in Male, unless your chosen itinerary requires alternative airport.
December & January charters commonly begin in Gan (Deep South and require an internal flight)
Meet, greet & assist at the airport before boarding.
- from 1pm
- all guests check in together
- before 9 am
- late check out, upon request and subject to availability
- Meet and greet group transfers included (Airport – Yacht – Airport)
Our biggest advantage is good cruising speed/seakeeping so we can explore way more spots in short space of time. We can move as weather/swell changes and can best of all move away from crowds.
Most commonly departing centrally located Male you have easy access to North and South Male as well as the Central Atolls. Picture perfect paradise abounds, beautiful islands, sandy beaches, untouched reefs and protected seas perfect for cruising.
The crew are at your service ready to fulfil your requirements, whether it’s relaxed cruising island to island, looking for the best dive or snorkelling locations, maybe you want to fish or surf.

However, nearly all resorts and liveaboard boats are licensed to serve alcohol. The expatriate liquor permit which used to allow expats to buy alcohol for their own consumption has been removed. The only place near Male, aside from resorts, where people can drink alcohol is at the Hulhule Island Hotel, commonly known as HIH or the airport hotel.
