Our experience cruising the Nth/Sth Male Atolls on "Hamathi" was brilliant. The boat was set up nicely with plenty of space to chill out, in particular the covered deck area up top and the outdoor eating area. The rooms were great with every room having its own ensuite inclusive of toilet and shower! The crew were exceptional, friendly, very efficient and were clearly experienced in their tasks, and no request seemed to be an issue. They are very client focused! It was great to watch such great teamwork! The guides were experienced and found us quality waves with limited crowds. Brian regularly contacted our boat keeping us informed of conditions and forecasts, enabling us to position ourselves for the best waves with least crowd.The food was sensational, all the boys loved eating the genuine local cuisine, and there was plenty of it!The booking and organising of the trip by the Perfect Wave team, in particular Rhonda, was excellent. The customer service was great, with nothing being a problem, and all contingencies covered eg. extra baggage allowance for boards etc. This efficient organisation led to a trouble free trip, with all flights, transfers, etc going smoothly. All together, this enabled us to have a great surfing trip and holiday. I highly recommend The Perfect Wave travel team!!

I had the best holiday ever. It was a holiday in the true sense. All we had to do was surf, eat and sleep. Everything else was done for us. I mean absolutely everything. So when I say holiday I mean from doing anything other than having fun. I have never had a holiday like that before. The Perfect wave "perfect", the boat was awsome, the crew were friendly, helpful and knowledgeable.The only compliant I could possibly make is my arms got so tired from catching too many awesome waves every day. I just kept going back out " just one more". Also I ate to much because the food was superb. Coming home has been very difficult after being spoilt rotten like that.Please send me there again real soon.

Maldives 2011 could not have been a better trip. Hassle free booking and travel, awesome boat crew and waves from heaven. 2 to 3 sessions each and every day. We were so well looked after that this surf mission actualy felt like a holiday rather than the usual work to get great waves. 10/10

Hi Josh,Just wanted to give you some feedback on our trip on the Hamathi last week. Just writing to say it was effing Amazing!!! It really was the ideal surf trip. The boat was excellent, the surf was awesome (3 to 6ft and glassy). Our surf guide (Marty) had us on all the best waves at all the right times. The chef on the boat was outstanding, serving up copious amounts of top quality local cuisine. (I was actually hoping to lose a few pounds surfing 7hrs a day but think I've stacked on a few kg's due to the fabulous food. I would highly recommend it to anyone. Look forward to dealing with u again (if I can ever get another leave pass).

Hands down the best surf holiday I have ever been on. The boat was well designed, spacious and had plenty of shade. The crew were fantastic and took us where ever we wanted to go whenever we wanted to go. The cook should be on Master Chef. Horse the surf guide was extremely knowledgeable and always put us in the right spot at the right time. He's also a great bloke.The waves were incredible in the 2-5ft range for the entire 9 days. Mostly around 3-4ft. Was either no wind or light offshore the whole time. More surf than we could deal with really.Gina the trip organizer was great - easy to contact and she would always reply to your emails.Will definitely be booking my next surf holiday with the Perfect Wave.

To be honest guys, we all sat around the table on the Hamathi on the last night and none of us could come up with anything that would of made it better , other than a beautiful Swedish masseur to ease the pain after 9 hours in the water ha ha , na seriously we lucked out with the waves, scoring 3-5 ft glassy sultans,perfect honkeys,cokes,jails and chickens ranging from 2-6ft and ended going to south male and getting kandooma rights and riptides from 2-4 ft with a solo glassy 4ft riptides sesh to finish off the trip ,we also had solo sessions at most of these places during certain times of the day and i think that having a local guide (horse) was the main reason we got the waves, he knew the locals on other boats and on the islands and within a Maldivian blink of an eye he had us in the right place at the right time , horse laughed a few times when he saw boats packing up and moving then returning 4 hours later to tell us it was smaller and more crowded elsewhere only to return to the same place but also missing the tide pulse in the meantime , a lot of the passes can double in size on the right part of the tide.We all owe a huge thanks to horse for this.We recently found out that a friend of a friend was there the same time as us and his guide talked them in to going south while we were up at north male at sultans and chickens etc etc he got waist high waves and we got epic glass over head high. The cook would have shamed most restaurants I've ever been to and we never had the same meal twice and every night we were pushing food away . The other crew basically said yes to everything, they fired up the dinghy whenever we were ready to surf and this happened up to 7 times a day on certain days when the 4 of us were staggering surfs. Gina was an absolute legend at the perfect wave, every email was answered ,the flights and transfers didn't miss a beat, absolutely nothing could have been improved .....call this lucky, call this a well organised holiday i don't know, maybe both? But its by far the best trip i have ever been on, which i also know now is not something you tell your wife on your return. ha ha But it was , 8 breaks, 63 hours in the water in 9 days , heaps of food, cold beers , and a great boat and captain . paulwhibley.tumblr.com has a few pics of the trip available to see.thanks everyone at the perfect wave and congratulations to Gina with the recent birth of jack , well done ! P.S we came up with a name of when you can't recall all the epic surfs in a surf trip , and when one blurs into another , then another and every previous all time epic top 10 surf has just been replaced by a new one.... This is called an EPICDEMIC ...........and that is exactly what we got .......

Hi Matt & Kim,Just wanted to say thank you for organising my surf trip to the Maldives. Everything went to plan from the moment I arrive at the airport until the moment I returned home. It was everything I imagined and more.What a fantastic boat, the Hamathi. The crew, Amir the Captain, Shafia the waiter, Sola the cabin boy, Fanbe the dinghy boy, Amin the Chef and Horce the surf guide were the best. They couldn’t do enough for us. They were extremely friendly without being intrusive and every request we asked of them was always met with a yes. Amin, the chef cooked up a storm, always plenty of food, he even sashimi a GT for dinner, Tommy caught early one morning. Nothing was a hassle.Couldn’t speak highly enough of Horce the surf guide. His knowledge got us into the right break at the right time, allowing us to make the most of the 3-4ft waves on offer the whole time. He even played water photographer so that Steve, Tommy and I could get some great photos as mementos of the trip.When you travel on your own, you never know who you are going to be sharing your holiday with. The wrong people can ruin it but I got to say Steve O and Tommy were the best. We all got on so well, I’m sure I’ve made mates for life.Thanks to everyone at The Perfect Wave, it really was the ‘Perfect Trip’. Would not hesitate in recommending you guys to anyone, and I look forward to organising another trip with you real soon.RegardsGlen

I would personally like to thank the Perfect Wave for booking and planning this holiday for me. I have done my fair share of travelling and I have never received such high quality customer service from a travel company before. Knowing that you are booking through an experienced company on a trip your not familiar with makes all the difference.The trip itself was a "trip of a life time". From the moment we were greeted at the airport we knew we were in good hands. We didn't have to lift a finger.There is always fear of what the waves will be like as its out of your hands. From the first day we were greeted with Perfect waves. These waves lasted for the whole duration of the trip. The waves were like something you would watch in a surf movie. One particular day was a little crowded so our tour guide Marty took us to a spot that no one goes to. It was a little smaller but we all loved it. It was one of my favourite surfs. I was on this trip with only one mate, this gave us the opportunity to meet other people. Never fear even if you book a trip like this solo. All surfing minded people are all the same. We had a great time, had a lot of laughs and made some new friends. The worst part of a trip like this is reminiscing about how good it was. I surfed approx 6-7 hours a day of perfect perfection. TAKE ME BACK PLEASE TAKE ME BACK I WANT TO GO BACK

Hi Charlie,Mate, we had the best time.I have to say i was expecting it to be a great trip but it blew my expectations out of the water.The boat was plenty big enough with loads of spots to sit and read books or just hang out with mates. The fishing was awesome! I caught a 5ft shark which was exhausting but exciting. Another one of the boys pulled in 4ft Wahoo!Marty our guide delivered us into the best breaks on the right winds and was a top guy. Highly recommend Marty. He is very knowledgeable and is an all round great bloke.The crew were great too, the food was just all time and fresh.We will be booking with you again at some stage as everything was thought of and everything ran like clockwork.Thanks again for one of the best holidays i have ever had.Cheers,Andy

My trip in Oct 2014 on the Hamathi was very cruisey. Most of the other passengers were unknown to me but everyone got along well. The waves were generally what I expected for October, and I got my share. I was surprised by the crowds in the North Male breaks and pleased to get away south on the Total Maldives package. Food was excellent as well as the crew. The boat was very comfortable and between surfs I found a number of different places on the boat to sit back and read. A few of us on the boat took fishing gear as well. We got some GT's, barracudas, sweet lip, squid, and had a 4 ft Wahu that broke off as it was being lifted into the boat. great trip.

Having been on other failed boats trips I was a little concerned to put my holiday in the hands of someone unknown. I have to say the professionalism of the team from start to finish has been incredible. Everything promised was delivered upon from flights, boat rating through to being met at the airport by the PW team in the Maldives. The crew on boat were fantastic, the surf guide was also very professional with safety as top of mind always. Food was incredible and I literally did not lift a finger the whole trip. All my time was spent resting fishing and surfing great waves. Thank you so much and I recommend TPW anytime. Jarrod

About this Surf Charter

Overview

Hamathi has undertaken a major rebuild in 2010 – so she is practically like a brand new boat!

Hamathi will comfortably accommodate 10 passengers, but the minimum number of passengers required for an exclusive charter is four, that’s right - just 4! She’s a great surf charter boat with the bonus of an outside dining area so you can watch the surf while eating your meals. The lounge area has the normal facilities of TV, DVD and stereo for your entertainment and full bar facilities. There are 2 sundecks for chilling and plenty of rack space for your board storage.

In 2014, Hamathi offers unique Total Maldives trips, which give you chance to surf more than just one area on your Maldives surf holiday. Please see the Schedule tab for dates and cruise directions. For more information on break descriptions and seasonality, please check out our Central & Southern Atolls and North & South Male Atolls region page.

 

Captain & Crew

The captain of Hamathi has been doing boat charters in the Maldives forever! He is ultimately in control of the safari. He is supported by a second in charge, boat boy, and full time chef.  The crew are all local Maldivians so know the area extensively and you can be confident of their skills & expertise.
 
On the Hamathi, we have the most experienced surf guide in the Maldives, with 13 years experience all accumulated on safari boats, starting on Rani Safari and for the last 8 years guiding Handhu, Handhu Fahli and Cobia - Martey. No surf guide has better knowledge of Maldives surfing points, in particular the Central and Outer Atolls which require expert navigation to find the perfect waves, than Martey. He is 31 years of age and loves the surf, he has great English communication skills and understands the wants and needs of the surf traveller. Martey lived and was educated in Sri Lanka, has travelled extensively abroad and after returning to his homeland, Maldives, chose the surf industry as his career. He holds his Captain's safari boat license and works to provide for his family.
 
Food & Beverage
Meals on the boats are all-you-can-eat and are a mixture of Maldivian, Sri Lankan and western dishes. The chefs are also willing to adjust the menu to suit individual needs if required. Breakfast is tea, coffee, fruit, juice, toast and a mix of jams and omelets of your choice. Lunch & dinner is a banquet of five different dishes with daily variations including fresh fish & tuna dishes, curries, rice and pasta dishes, vegetables and salads. Evening meals are followed by dessert and lunch is followed by a fruit dish. Tea and coffee is served after all meals. A hand of bananas ripen on deck. A full complement of alcohol is available for purchase.

"Total Maldives" trip

Why pick an area of the Maldives to surf when you don’t have to! We here at The Perfect Wave have created the “Total Maldives” trip. You can surf any atoll from the North Male to Laamu Atoll, or even further down south, if the conditions are good. This trip is a fully flexible, no-limitations surf safari taking you to secret spots around the island paradise chain with just you and your mates for company, except of course the abundant marine life. The only limitations is the weather and nature and your surf guide will make sure to advise you which breaks work best under any given weather conditions. This is the first trip of its kind so be part of history and get on board Hamathi and experience this truly awesome surf destination.

Our experience cruising the Nth/Sth Male Atolls on "Hamathi" was brilliant. The boat was set up nicely with plenty of space to chill out, in particular the covered deck area up top and the outdoor eating area. The rooms were great with every room having its own ensuite inclusive of toilet and shower! The crew were exceptional, friendly, very efficient and were clearly experienced in their tasks, and no request seemed to be an issue. They are very client focused! It was great to watch such great teamwork! The guides were experienced and found us quality waves with limited crowds. Brian regularly contacted our boat keeping us informed of conditions and forecasts, enabling us to position ourselves for the best waves with least crowd.The food was sensational, all the boys loved eating the genuine local cuisine, and there was plenty of it!The booking and organising of the trip by the Perfect Wave team, in particular Rhonda, was excellent. The customer service was great, with nothing being a problem, and all contingencies covered eg. extra baggage allowance for boards etc. This efficient organisation led to a trouble free trip, with all flights, transfers, etc going smoothly. All together, this enabled us to have a great surfing trip and holiday. I highly recommend The Perfect Wave travel team!!

I had the best holiday ever. It was a holiday in the true sense. All we had to do was surf, eat and sleep. Everything else was done for us. I mean absolutely everything. So when I say holiday I mean from doing anything other than having fun. I have never had a holiday like that before. The Perfect wave "perfect", the boat was awsome, the crew were friendly, helpful and knowledgeable.The only compliant I could possibly make is my arms got so tired from catching too many awesome waves every day. I just kept going back out " just one more". Also I ate to much because the food was superb. Coming home has been very difficult after being spoilt rotten like that.Please send me there again real soon.

Maldives 2011 could not have been a better trip. Hassle free booking and travel, awesome boat crew and waves from heaven. 2 to 3 sessions each and every day. We were so well looked after that this surf mission actualy felt like a holiday rather than the usual work to get great waves. 10/10

Hi Josh,Just wanted to give you some feedback on our trip on the Hamathi last week. Just writing to say it was effing Amazing!!! It really was the ideal surf trip. The boat was excellent, the surf was awesome (3 to 6ft and glassy). Our surf guide (Marty) had us on all the best waves at all the right times. The chef on the boat was outstanding, serving up copious amounts of top quality local cuisine. (I was actually hoping to lose a few pounds surfing 7hrs a day but think I've stacked on a few kg's due to the fabulous food. I would highly recommend it to anyone. Look forward to dealing with u again (if I can ever get another leave pass).

Hands down the best surf holiday I have ever been on. The boat was well designed, spacious and had plenty of shade. The crew were fantastic and took us where ever we wanted to go whenever we wanted to go. The cook should be on Master Chef. Horse the surf guide was extremely knowledgeable and always put us in the right spot at the right time. He's also a great bloke.The waves were incredible in the 2-5ft range for the entire 9 days. Mostly around 3-4ft. Was either no wind or light offshore the whole time. More surf than we could deal with really.Gina the trip organizer was great - easy to contact and she would always reply to your emails.Will definitely be booking my next surf holiday with the Perfect Wave.

To be honest guys, we all sat around the table on the Hamathi on the last night and none of us could come up with anything that would of made it better , other than a beautiful Swedish masseur to ease the pain after 9 hours in the water ha ha , na seriously we lucked out with the waves, scoring 3-5 ft glassy sultans,perfect honkeys,cokes,jails and chickens ranging from 2-6ft and ended going to south male and getting kandooma rights and riptides from 2-4 ft with a solo glassy 4ft riptides sesh to finish off the trip ,we also had solo sessions at most of these places during certain times of the day and i think that having a local guide (horse) was the main reason we got the waves, he knew the locals on other boats and on the islands and within a Maldivian blink of an eye he had us in the right place at the right time , horse laughed a few times when he saw boats packing up and moving then returning 4 hours later to tell us it was smaller and more crowded elsewhere only to return to the same place but also missing the tide pulse in the meantime , a lot of the passes can double in size on the right part of the tide.We all owe a huge thanks to horse for this.We recently found out that a friend of a friend was there the same time as us and his guide talked them in to going south while we were up at north male at sultans and chickens etc etc he got waist high waves and we got epic glass over head high. The cook would have shamed most restaurants I've ever been to and we never had the same meal twice and every night we were pushing food away . The other crew basically said yes to everything, they fired up the dinghy whenever we were ready to surf and this happened up to 7 times a day on certain days when the 4 of us were staggering surfs. Gina was an absolute legend at the perfect wave, every email was answered ,the flights and transfers didn't miss a beat, absolutely nothing could have been improved .....call this lucky, call this a well organised holiday i don't know, maybe both? But its by far the best trip i have ever been on, which i also know now is not something you tell your wife on your return. ha ha But it was , 8 breaks, 63 hours in the water in 9 days , heaps of food, cold beers , and a great boat and captain . paulwhibley.tumblr.com has a few pics of the trip available to see.thanks everyone at the perfect wave and congratulations to Gina with the recent birth of jack , well done ! P.S we came up with a name of when you can't recall all the epic surfs in a surf trip , and when one blurs into another , then another and every previous all time epic top 10 surf has just been replaced by a new one.... This is called an EPICDEMIC ...........and that is exactly what we got .......

Hi Matt & Kim,Just wanted to say thank you for organising my surf trip to the Maldives. Everything went to plan from the moment I arrive at the airport until the moment I returned home. It was everything I imagined and more.What a fantastic boat, the Hamathi. The crew, Amir the Captain, Shafia the waiter, Sola the cabin boy, Fanbe the dinghy boy, Amin the Chef and Horce the surf guide were the best. They couldn’t do enough for us. They were extremely friendly without being intrusive and every request we asked of them was always met with a yes. Amin, the chef cooked up a storm, always plenty of food, he even sashimi a GT for dinner, Tommy caught early one morning. Nothing was a hassle.Couldn’t speak highly enough of Horce the surf guide. His knowledge got us into the right break at the right time, allowing us to make the most of the 3-4ft waves on offer the whole time. He even played water photographer so that Steve, Tommy and I could get some great photos as mementos of the trip.When you travel on your own, you never know who you are going to be sharing your holiday with. The wrong people can ruin it but I got to say Steve O and Tommy were the best. We all got on so well, I’m sure I’ve made mates for life.Thanks to everyone at The Perfect Wave, it really was the ‘Perfect Trip’. Would not hesitate in recommending you guys to anyone, and I look forward to organising another trip with you real soon.RegardsGlen

The Hamathi crew were great... they worked tirelessly, were very polite and positive. Marty our surf guide was brilliant... he even went covert for us to score some incrowded waves! The question is... when do we book our next trip through Sylv and the perfect Wave?? (Subject to wife approval -)

I would personally like to thank the Perfect Wave for booking and planning this holiday for me. I have done my fair share of travelling and I have never received such high quality customer service from a travel company before. Knowing that you are booking through an experienced company on a trip your not familiar with makes all the difference.The trip itself was a "trip of a life time". From the moment we were greeted at the airport we knew we were in good hands. We didn't have to lift a finger.There is always fear of what the waves will be like as its out of your hands. From the first day we were greeted with Perfect waves. These waves lasted for the whole duration of the trip. The waves were like something you would watch in a surf movie. One particular day was a little crowded so our tour guide Marty took us to a spot that no one goes to. It was a little smaller but we all loved it. It was one of my favourite surfs. I was on this trip with only one mate, this gave us the opportunity to meet other people. Never fear even if you book a trip like this solo. All surfing minded people are all the same. We had a great time, had a lot of laughs and made some new friends. The worst part of a trip like this is reminiscing about how good it was. I surfed approx 6-7 hours a day of perfect perfection. TAKE ME BACK PLEASE TAKE ME BACK I WANT TO GO BACK

Hi Charlie,Mate, we had the best time.I have to say i was expecting it to be a great trip but it blew my expectations out of the water.The boat was plenty big enough with loads of spots to sit and read books or just hang out with mates. The fishing was awesome! I caught a 5ft shark which was exhausting but exciting. Another one of the boys pulled in 4ft Wahoo!Marty our guide delivered us into the best breaks on the right winds and was a top guy. Highly recommend Marty. He is very knowledgeable and is an all round great bloke.The crew were great too, the food was just all time and fresh.We will be booking with you again at some stage as everything was thought of and everything ran like clockwork.Thanks again for one of the best holidays i have ever had.Cheers,Andy

My trip in Oct 2014 on the Hamathi was very cruisey. Most of the other passengers were unknown to me but everyone got along well. The waves were generally what I expected for October, and I got my share. I was surprised by the crowds in the North Male breaks and pleased to get away south on the Total Maldives package. Food was excellent as well as the crew. The boat was very comfortable and between surfs I found a number of different places on the boat to sit back and read. A few of us on the boat took fishing gear as well. We got some GT's, barracudas, sweet lip, squid, and had a 4 ft Wahu that broke off as it was being lifted into the boat. great trip.

Having been on other failed boats trips I was a little concerned to put my holiday in the hands of someone unknown. I have to say the professionalism of the team from start to finish has been incredible. Everything promised was delivered upon from flights, boat rating through to being met at the airport by the PW team in the Maldives. The crew on boat were fantastic, the surf guide was also very professional with safety as top of mind always. Food was incredible and I literally did not lift a finger the whole trip. All my time was spent resting fishing and surfing great waves. Thank you so much and I recommend TPW anytime. Jarrod
