Maldives surf boat trips
Maldives surf boat trips are all about spending your days and nights surrounded by the ocean, exploring a wave-rich, tropical paradise, dropping anchor beside blissfully empty, perfectly formed waves and, should you feel so inclined, surfing from dawn 'til dusk.
The surf charters which criss-cross and explore this area give you freedom, flexibility and total mobility – no being stuck in one place waiting for the swell to hit – you get to go wherever the action is.......every day. Your experienced guides and crew are there simply to ensure you have maximum wave time on the best waves and all perfectly suited to your personal surfing level.
Surf boats come in all shapes and sizes, offering cozy comfort right through to the height of stately luxury but all come with a range of facilities, amenities and activities to ensure your Maldives surf boat experience is an unforgettable one – from Wi-Fi to whirlpools and from fine dining to fishing. Whether your idea of downtime is lounging around in the sun, floating around with a snorkel above coral reefs teeming with life, heading out to look for whales and dolphins or playing Robinson Crusoe at a BBQ on a desert island – the Maldives surf boat options can deliver the goods.
Maldives is board-short warm water
The first thing which comes to mind when thinking of surfing in the Maldives is board-short warm water of the bright crystal blue variety but, as wonderful as that is, there is so much more. The exotic Maldives offers a year-round surf experience with the biggest swells occurring from May to October where a wide variety of world-class coral reef breaks are capable of holding up to triple overhead conditions.
Explore the Maledives Atolls with a surf boat
The North Male Atoll is the best known and the most surfed area with a high density of quality waves. To a slightly lesser extent this is also true of the South Male Atoll waves while the Central Atoll offers up the chance of escaping the crowds with a predominance of right-handers. The Outer Atolls are something else again, an adventure seekers paradise, full of seldom surfed gems and secret spots.
Although much on offer suits the experienced surfer in search of powerful, hollow conditions and on up to the kamikaze, there are mellower options too which are Mal, SUP and intermediate level friendly. Conveniently close or remote – every wave in every corner of this rich island chain is accessible on board a Maldives surf boat.
Accommodation on board
Your accommodation during your vacation ranges from the cozy to the luxurious, offering single, twin, double and triple bed options and even state rooms which make for any kind of shared occupancy or private cabin possibility. So, whether you are going it alone, one half of a romantically inclined couple, having the family trip of a lifetime or one of a traveling surf crew you are sure to find something to fit your needs.....perfectly.
Air-conditioned cabins are standard as are a range of communal areas for socializing or kicking back. So, when you are not tucked up in bed with a head full of surf dreams you might be soaking up the rays on the sundeck, sipping a cocktail at a bar open to the stars or simply chilling in the lounge watching a favorite DVD.
Maldives surf boats are accessible for everyone
Maldives surf boats are accessible for everyone – young chargers, old-boy longboard crews, groups made up of surf addicts and non-surfers alike, even a girls-only party. However, they tend to be most popular with mixed groups because the idea of grabbing a surf boat just for you and your surf buddies is one which widely appeals. Boats start out with as few as 4 persons so this dream vision is well within the range of possibility.
There are also lots of choices for solo travelers - where an instant like-minded social surf posse is created for you - and families while the more intimate boat options have an obvious draw for couples and even honeymooners.
Most of the boat trips offered are scheduled but there are also open boat options – think floating hotel - which mean you can arrive and leave whenever best suits you.
The packages offered with Maldives surf charters are usually on a full board basis and almost universally include guiding/surf spot transfer and sometimes surf coaching options. Many also include all sorts of extras such as excursions and activities as part of the deal. The majority of options cater for the mid-range to ultimate luxury surf traveler but those with smaller pockets are not excluded, with budget range options also available.
If you have never experienced a live-aboard surf boat then you may have no idea what to expect or even what is available to you from the many (sometimes bewildering) options. Or perhaps you are tearing your hair out trying to tie up combinations of schedules, dates and cabin size configurations. We get it and that's just why we are here - what might seem like a minefield to you is our area of expertise. The LUEX crew have personally checked out all the boats trips on offer and are ready and waiting to take your call.
