Beautiful 110ft schooner, skippered by Mentawai legend Daryl, offering en-suite cabins, TV and DVD facilities and an experienced and knowledgeable crew.

"Explore the surf-rich East Indian Ocean and the Mentawais"

In surf terms, it doesn't get more iconic than the Mentawais – an area blessed with the best that the surf gods saw fit to give the planet. On board the beautiful 110 ft schooner known as Bintang, you will get to explore this surf-rich corner of the world with days spent on or in the East Indian Ocean. Your whole trip will be watched over and guided by the sailing boat's skipper Daryl – one of the legends in these parts.

Your accommodation during your wave-questing trip is offered as 4 cabins – 3 of which have private en-suite facilities - which can sleep up to 16 people, while a group of 10 is considered fully exclusive.

At the end of each day's surfing sessions you might have only enough energy left to just drop yourself into bed, rocked gently to sleep by the ocean while being cooled by the air-con. Or you might decide to spend some time counting shooting stars on deck or settling back in front of the flat screen TV to watch a DVD.

Your surfing hours will be well taken care of. Rest assured that Daryl and his crew will get you to the best Mentawai waves using all their experience and knowledge of this area. If you have exclusively chartered Bintang then exploring further afield and other areas is also possible.
