Your floating home…

Welcome to Sea Farer. Your modern surf charter boat styled with the masts of traditional Maldivian fishing vessels. Newly refurbished inside and out in 2018, Sea Farer will be your home away from home for 10 days of hunting perfect waves across the Maldives.

At 27m, Sea Farer is mid-sized boat and able to anchor closer to the breaks than other typically larger surf boats. That said, we keep our groups small with a maximum of 8 guests across 6 en-suite guest cabins meaning there is ample space on board.

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 with TV and PS4, a well stocked bar and of course, an amazing sun deck. The 5 strong crew are some of the best in the business and the cuisine your your 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.
