Your floating home…

Welcome to Gurahali. The ultimate boat for surfing the Maldives in maximum comfort, styled with the masts of traditional Maldivian fishing vessels. With ample space and luxurious facilities, Gurahali will be your home away from home for 10 days of hunting perfect waves across the Maldives.

At 28m and with a top cruising speed of 12 knots, Gurahali is spacious and at home motoring between the Maldives hundreds of reef passes. Despite the ample space and maximum capacity of 14, we keep our groups small with a maximum of 8 guests across 6 guest cabins. All cabins are air conditioned and have en-suite bathrooms, ensuring maximum privacy and a good night’s sleep after a long day of surfing.

Unlike most Maldivian surf charters we are able to make night crossings if the conditions allow. This is a total game changer when it comes to seeking uncrowded waves across the archipelago and means we maximise our time in the water.

There are multiple outdoor areas, a comfortable lounge, a well stocked bar and an amazing sun deck. The award-winning crew are some of the best in the business and the fresh cuisine your chef is capable of knocking up in a small floating kitchen is truly incredible.

Your Renegade surf guide will be your point of contact throughout the trip and make sure you’re scoring the best waves on offer each day. With their intimate knowledge of forecasts and surf spots across the region, we will make sure you squeeze every last drop out of your time with us.
