Maldives Boat Charters - Inner Atolls
Charters priced on group bookings only - please enquire.
Inner Atoll charters on Theia and Gurahali take in the surf regions of North and South Male Atolls.Theia & Gurahali are both amongst the finest luxury boats in the Maldives. They are spacious with air-conditioned cabins, saloons and dining areas and have plenty of shaded open-air deck spaces on multiple levels. Each boat is accompanied by a support dhoni and tender with experienced crews and surf guides.
In 2014 Theia charters (pictured right) will operate from March to October and Gurahali (pictured bottom right) charters from May to October. The charters are arranged on either exclusive groups (7 – 16 surfers) or mixed groups up to a maximum 10 surfers and will be mainly 7 night trips, Saturday to Saturday. Discounts for Non-surfers are available on both boats.
Guests are met on arrival at the Maldives international airport and taken to the boat which will be fully stocked and equipped for the trip. Then the group is able to make its own itinerary in conjunction with the skipper and surf guide, deciding where to go and which breaks to surf every day.
Resort island visits can be arranged for a disco night; band or cultural show and for use of the Spa or Dive Centre. Chaaya Island Dhonveli is one of the most conveniently located resorts and has the Chavana Spa with qualified Indonesian staff who are very experienced in massage techniques for surfers.
The surfing season is from April to October with May to August being the most consistent. However, if you would like to escape the crowd, early and late seasons still have quality waves. The resort has local resident surf guides throughout the surfing season who are there to help make your stay as enjoyable as possible, and keep you up to date with the conditions and swell predictions.
Main breaks surfed are:-
North Male Atoll: A short cruise north from Male’ airport are the chain of islands that host the main surf breaks of North Male’ Atoll. The breaks able to be accessed will include Jailbreaks (R); Honky’s (L); Sultans (R); Ninjas/Piddlies (R); Colas/Cokes (R) & Chickens (L).
South Male Atoll: About 3 hours cruising from the resort region of North Male Atoll are the less visited surf breaks of Gurus (L), Quarters (R), Kates (L), Natives (R) & Last Stops (R).
