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;

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.

Surf based itineraries upon request.

Good to know

Climate
The Maldives has a tropical climate with warm temperatures all year round and enjoys a great deal of sunshine. The temperature varies very little throughout the year and is usually found between 25° and 32° C. Although the weather pattern is determined by the monsoons, the Maldives sits on the equator so the monsoons aren’t as defined as in neighbouring countries. Severe storms are very rare.

Currency
The local currency is Maldivian rufiyaa (MVR) and it is possible to change money at the airport upon arrival. The exchange rate varies roughly between 15 MVR and 15.42 MVR to 1 USD. Only licensed shops are allowed to accept foreign currencies and USD are the most commonly accepted.

Dress code
Maldives is a Muslim country and it is rightfully expected that visitors respect this by adhering to a certain dress code when visiting local islands.
In Malé one can get the impression that a dress code doesn’t exist, as many tourists ignore it, despite being informed at welcome meetings and by their tour guides. Although things in Male ‘appear’ to be slightly more relaxed than on local islands, the dress code still reflects the great modesty expected by Muslim culture. Appropriate dress for women would be to cover their shoulders and knees, whereas shorts are acceptable for men.

Electricity
The electric current in the Maldives is 220V, 50HZ AC. The most common standard for power outlets is the British system. It is always wise to bring a travel adaptor as you can occasionally find yourself in need of one in some hotels. We use British power outlets onboard both yachts, please note all cabins are equipped with universal plug adapter.

Import restrictions
Import of the following is strictly prohibited:

  • alcohol
  • food items containing pork meat
  • narcotics
  • objects of religious character

  • weapons

PLEASE NOTE that all luggage is scanned prior to arrival.

Good reception is available most of the time, except for times when yacht crosses open ocean (few hours throughout a week) and more remote areas in Vaavu atoll.

Flying drones
Areas where drones can be flown are very limited in the Maldives, as much of the country consists of islands with sea-plane ports, restricting the use of drones.
To fly a drone in the Maldives you must obtain approval from the Maldives National Defense Force (MNDF) and a permit from the MCAA.

Please use the link DRONE PERMIT
