About your boat and crew

With exceptional on-board facilities, crew and service, Maldives Explorer is the dream surf charter boat and the perfect base for surf coaching in the Maldives. With 8 spacious cabins, en-suite bathrooms and air-conditioning, this boat is like a floating boutique hotel and provides the ultimate surfing experience. There are 2 sea view double suites on the top deck, 5 twin cabins and 1 family suite located on the lower deck which can accommodate 4 guests.

There is a media library complete with 32″ HD TV – the perfect place to analyse your video footage from the day’s session. There’s also a karaoke system, board games, fishing rods and a BBQ to keep you entertained in between surf sessions.

Keeping you fuelled, the chef will be dishing up 3 incredible meals each day in a range of cuisines. In addition, the fully stocked bar will ensure you never go thirsty.

With a speed of 14 knots, Maldives Explorer can travel the length and breadth of the Maldives to find uncrowded perfection. The boat is also accompanied by a 3m dingy. Therefore ensuring you can always get to the lineup whenever it’s firing.

Above all, your Renegade Surf Travel guide will be your point of contact on the boat and make sure you’re in the best waves available on each given day. Through their knowledge of the region, your guide will plan the surf sessions based on your surf level and the kind of waves you want to surf. Ultimately, your guide will run the trip and make sure you get the waves of your life – because that’s what you’re here for!

We’re keeping the group size small on this trip.  This will ensure each guest has their own cabin and you receive the best coaching experience possible.
