Extended Description

Arriving in Padang a uniformed guide from the Surfing Village who speaks English (important detail, because in Padang, different from Bali and Jakarta, no one speaks English) will be waiting for you with an air conditioned car or bus, depending on arrival times.

As soon as our guests arrive in Padang, they are taken by our guides/translators to either a restaurant or a hotel, where they can relax from their flight for a few hours, have a cold beer, eat some delicious Padang food, take a walk through Padang’s historical center or just kick back and watch some TV.

The boat estimated time of departure from Padang is 18:00. Allowing guests on all flights sufficient time to arrive and prepare for the overnight crossing, arriving at the Surfing Village just in time for some breakfast barrels.

The Surfing Village just made a deal with Padang's biggest marine store and they are renovating a 24 meter boat especially for this crossing. The boat has two cabins for the guests to sleep, as well as an undercover common area with benches at the front of the boat, for those guests wanting to enjoy all the splendor of a Sumatran night at sea, downing a cold beer and getting psychologically prepared for their arrival in Paradise! 

The boat has a very experienced local crew, and is decked out with all the necessary safety equipment including; Radio, GPS, life jackets, flares, floaties, bibles, etc... If you prefer, you can still choose to take the airplane, we also have the option of different boats available, contact us for more information.
