Everyday Atoll Cruiser will be anchored at a chosen spot so that you can surf and chill according to your likes. What happens on the trip goes something like this:

• Everyday, your guide calls you before daybreak at 5 am. Wake up with fresh coffee brewed onboard and hit the first wave right after.

• Breakfast is served around 7, then it is up to you to chill for a bit and start surfing again, this time probably with a change of wave action due to tide changes. • Lunch is on at 12.30, then its chill and surf until sunset.

• After dinner you can just unwind on the boat deck. Tell us if you would prefer something different after the surfing action ends everyday, like a fishing trip at a nearby reef, or a barbecue on a deserted island beach nearby.

• Tell us if you are up for some spa style pampering; we will arrange a spa treatment on board if you wish. Or let us know if you would like to explore the vibrant life on the capital island Male’. We will arrange almost anything that is possible on the Maldivian shores!

Food

All meals including breakfast, lunch, high tea and dinner on board are served buffet style. Our meals fit international standard, with the freshest ingredients available, including fresh fish caught on your trip of course.

You could also catch your own fish and ask our chef to cook it for you on the beach grill on a deserted island, serve with authentic Maldivian food and live boduberu music. All day complimentary tea, coffee, and biscuits are available for those opting to chill on the deck for a while.

You have got to snack and eat Maldivian style in between those surfs. Remember to ask about the mouth freshening follow up to every meal – the dhufun with betel leaves, areca nuts and sweet spices. Or try the coconuts, dried fish and dates, the perfect Maldivian snack to munch on while you cruise from one location to another.

Surfing

General Conditions Maldives:

The North Male Atoll contains the more well known and surfed breaks of the Maldives. The North Male Atoll probably offers the most consistent spots especially during the summer months June and July. Most spots are well protected from the dominant south westerly winds and the reef set ups usually pick up quite a lot of swell. Some of the breaks in North Male are perfectly shaped and offer highest wave quality. Unfortunately the spots are prone to heavy crowds, because the breaks can be accessed so easily. There are plenty of boats operating in this area and many resorts offer surf transfers to the breaks.

The Central Atolls including the Meemu, Thaa and Laamu and the Outer Atolls including Gaafu Dhaalu and Addu offer more than 30 world class reef breaks that are rarely surfed. Occasional troublesome weather patterns with heavy storms during the months of June to August make it difficult to cross channels between the atolls and to operate surf charter trips without well equipped boats in this area. Logistical challenges of food supply and technical support add to the fact that only very few boats stay in this area for a longer period of time.

This vessel offers safety standards and equipment that allows to operate in the more remote regions for sporadic trips. Therefore it can guarantee empty breaks. While it may happen that you will see another charter vessel during your stay you will have the breaks on your own for the most of your time. It is not based down there permanently though and extra costs for relocation may apply.
