They were exceptional and a credit to your business.
I would happily sail with them again.
Oshoka cooking skills were sublime and he served amazing dishes we all enjoyed every meal.

 David Edwards (August 2017),

I had the most amazing holiday that exceeded my expectations. I would love to do it again someday and have no trouble recommending The Perfect Wave to anyone considering this type of experience.
Thank you to all the Perfect Wave team who helped make this adventure a reality.

Joel (September 2016)
Stoked with the trip! The service and food on the boat was amazing!

Paul (September 2016)
I had an amazing 10 days aboard the Cobia surfing the northern Maldives atols.With a selection of world class waves on offer and a boat captain who was keen to get nus into the water early - and onto the best waves, expectations were exceeded! 

If you're after an experience where the crew are dialed into getting you onto your perfect wave, then the The Perfect Wave Company is for you. The Captain ensured we were

David (June 2016)
We all had a really great time.
Lozza our surf guide was fantastic. All his advice on where to surf, how big it would be and at what stage of our trip we should go to different breaks and locations was
absolutely spot on every time, we couldn’t have asked for more from him.

The crew on the Cobia were also amazing, there wasn’t much we had to do but surf, eat and sleep as everything else was taken care of by the crew.
They would load our boards on and off the dingy when we went surfing, bring beers up to us on the sun deck , nothing was ever a problem for them.
The food was great, with an array of amazing dishes every day. There was never a day where we ate the same food and we never went hungry as there was so much at every meal.

All in all it was a fantastic trip and I can throughly recommend the Cobia for a surf trip in the Maldives.

Jon (June 2016)
Just letting you know we all had a great trip, all went really well.
Asaka the Chef was great and had plenty of food for bubble boy to eat.
A happy snap of one of the days.
Loz did some drone footage that was great. When I get a chance I can send a file if you like.
Regards 
Jon Morgan

 

Darren (June 2016)
The trip was really good, we were so lucky to get waves every day and it picked up and scored some epic waves on the last 3 days.
The crew were unreal, food  great , Lawsa our surf guide was terrific and made the trip one to remember.
The only down side to the trip were the crowds, we were told it would be busy which it was, but we still had a great time and good memories.
Thanks again for all your help.
Regards,
Darren Wolfe

Peter (June 2016)
Lozza and his crew on the Cobia took really good care of us, from excellent service on the boat right up to tips on where to sit in the line up. I would recommend this trip to anyone

Grant (April 2016)
All on board the Cobia had a great time and we got great waves. We all felt we got lucky with a fantastic swell for most of the week. Everything about the trip was great. The boat was comfortable… The food was really good, everyone was very happy with the food. The crew were friendly and helpful. Surf guide Lozza, was a nice young bloke , who got us into some good waves.

Sarah & Damian (May 2016)
The Cobia charter was heaps of fun. The crew were terrific and Ashock deserves his reputation as a super cook. Lozza did a good job in getting us into some good waves. We had some expert surfers and also a couple who are not so expert and he found waves suitable for everyone. We had two days at Chickens which were sensational. Lozza read it early and we had a full day to our selves.

Luke (November 2015)
I have just returned to NZ after a 6 week surf tour of Sri Lanka, Maldives, Bali, Sumbawa and Sumatra all through the Perfect Wave. 
Every spot was amazing with the Cobia boat charter in the Maldives and Aloita resort in the Mentawai's being the pick off the bunch.
This trip with all the transfers and pick up's at differant airports, ports and hotels was all sorted by Glen at the Perfect Wave NZ.
Everything ran very smoothly and was Perfect!!!!!
I can't wait for my next adventure with the Perfect Wave and recommend traveling with the Perfect Wave to anyone looking for a hassle free surf holiday.

Gregory (October 2015)
One of the best trips I've had as a solo traveller. From start to finish everything went smoothly. The Cobia is a great boat with a great crew and meeting other surfers from around the world and sharing great waves, fishing and stories over cold beers was just the break I needed from work. The boat crew got us waves all day everyday with the addedd bonus of being away from the crowds. It was also great to have the chance to go on a few Atolls and see how another culture lives in such a senic part of the world. I would recommend the Cobia to all people keen on doing a boat trip in the Maldives.

Kayte (September 2015)
We are all stoked on the trip! We scored some pretty epic waves that were not in the forecast so we went from thinking it would be 2 ft all week to getting some solid perfect waves around the blood moon. The crew on the Cobia were awesome once they settled in to the reality of 10 women onboard... This was apparently a first for them and at the beginning i think there might have been a feeling that we were all going to drown/get cut up on the reef/ swept away in the currents so there was some apprehension about letting us off the boat and into the line up!

The food was amazing and although we were on the smaller/ less luxurious boat we all felt like it was perfect for us and the top deck which shaded most of that area was pretty much home for the majority of the time. I noticed that none of the other boats had such a large covered outside area and we were stoked on this. I would definately book this trip again and all the girls would come along without hesitation.

Also the Colombo stopover was fantastic - i recommend Jetwing Sea as a place to transit.

James (September 2015)
We stayed on the cobia for 10 days. Without doubt the best money I have ever spent in my life! The boat was more than comfortable, the food incredible, something for everyone and more than enough for 10 huge appetites. The crew were outstanding, some of the hardest working happiest people I have ever met helping with every part of our holiday, working really hard to make sure all we had to do was surf and fish. Paul our surf guide (who rips) give us the best advice but always left any decision to the group catering for all abilities. Paul was also happy to give surfing tips giving me a back hand barrel riding masterclass. Then there's the waves, I had high expectations wanting to surf the maldives for 10 years. Pictures do not do the place justice, there is a wave for all abilities we had everything from double over head 400yd stand up barrels to 2ft hot dog walls with waves every day! I would like to thank Paul the crew and the perfect wave for the holiday.
P.S If your wondering whether to book don't think just do it, you will not be disappointed.

Guy (August 2015)
Fantastic trip. Boat spot on for price range. Excellent crew! Food in particular was amazing. Rippe was sharp in staying away from crowds to give us great waves with minimal surfers on there. I'll be back.

John (August 2015)
Great trip and great waves! The crew on the boat were unreal and worked really hard at making everything easy for us!

Mark (July 2015)
Brilliant trip - first class waves, always able to escape the crowds, delicious food, great staff. 6 surfers on the boat and a great crew, what more could you ask for?

Daniel (July 2015)
Awesome trip got really lucky with pumping waves for the whole trip,the crew was outstanding and always up for a laugh, they did everything from grabbing our boards to even pulling all our fins out on the last day. Rippe is an awesome guide with great local knowledge and always put us onto the best waves.

Andrew (July 2015)
The trip was great!!! All very straight forward with flights etc. The weather was good and there was a fair bit of surf (another foot or so would have been perfect). Rippe and the rest of the crew on the boat were great, all very helpful, Rippe has plenty of local knowledge and was happy to pass it on which made for more productive time in the water. The food was great and the dinghy boy, captain, deck hand and barman were all willing to help out when needed and didn't have to be asked. The boat was good as as well. We will definitely look at booking through you guys in the future. 

Samuel (July 2015)
I recently got back from a trip to the Maldives that was organised through the perfect wave. The boat we were on was called the Cobia and i have two words FIRST CLASS. The crew were amazing and made you feel like you were right at home. They were extremely friendly,helpful and would not even let you pick your board up and carry it to the dingy as they would do it for you. The food was second to none, absolutely beautiful. We had 9 blokes on the boat and not once did anyone not mention how god it was. One of my mates even said the food was on of the highlights. No one ever went to bed hungry as there was always a heap left over. The chef even made me thoroughly enjoy foods I never liked before the trip. Our surf guide was a champion who took us to all the best breaks and was happy to share his knowledge about the Maldives ranging from surfing to the history of the Maldives and everything in between. I couldn't give this boat a better rating as they were simply perfect so if your thinking about going don't hesitate

Aaron (July 2015)
The Cobia was absolutely perfect for our intended trip. We booked it exclusively for a family/mates surfing escape and it exceeded all our expectations. The Crew Ibbe - captain ( knows all the good fishing spots! but ssshhhhh!), Ashoka - chef (EXCEPTIONAL!! every meal, every day!) , Jaya - barmen (made sure we never went thirsty, can massage too!), Mohmed - deckhand (cool guy, who has some great fishing tips), Raju - boatboy (could never help enough, if it was dropping you in the surf, picking us up or taking us trolling.... champion lad).... more importantly all crew members ensured that whatever was required was ready to go and they all genuinely wanted to make the trip as special as possible. Rippe, the local surf guide has extensive knowledge of all the breaks, where to be and when and is a true legend, whether it playing tunes on his guitar, ripping up his knee board or sinking a few tigers with the boys. Surf was really fun for the entire 10 day period ranging from 2-4ft. Finally, thanks to Charlie for all your help in hooking us up with the amazing crew on the Cobia, makes organising a surf trip hassle free. Thanks to all!! Can't wait to do it all again!

Nathan (June 2015)
Just wanted to say a big thanks to you and the crew on the Cobia. We had the most amazing week of surfing, fishing and the food was excellent. The guys really looked after us on the boat, nothing was too much trouble and everything done with a smile and a laugh. A great relaxed atmosphere which is just what you want when chilling in between surfs. The waves were fun and consistent all week which made it the perfect trip.

Ryan
Awesome trip - even with smallish swell on a couple of days, the boat crew made the trip a pleasure. Our guide Rippe knew where to be to avoid the crowds and get the best waves when they were on. The food was awesome, more than you could possibly eat. The deck hands never stopped running around making sure everything was ready for the next surf. All you have to do is eat, surf, sleep and repeat. So good. Cant wait for another trip. Cheers Perfect Wave.

Thomas (May 2015)
Hi Victoria, first day back in the office, still haven't sorted the pictures yet but wanted to thank you in advance for getting me on the Cobia, it was a truly amazing trip! There was absolutely nothing to complain about, boat, guide, food, the crew and the travel group could not have been any better! I've been to many stunning places and on great trips but this experience topped it all! Last but not least, the professional way you guys organised all this is outstanding! As soon as I have the pics sorted, I will show you, what amazing trip you arranged for me!

Best regards 
Thomas

Glen (May 2015)
The trip to the maldives on the Cobia was amazing. all the staff on the boat were super friendly and treated us like kings. our surf guide Rippe' was such an awesome guy who new the waves intimately. his calls on where to go every day made sure that we had awesome waves for the entire 10 day trip. we surfed north as far as Cokes and Chickens, as far south as Riptides and Sultans, Jails, Honkeys inbetween.
all in all we had a fantastic trip and will certainly be doing it again with The Perfect Wave. from day 1 when I contacted Charlie for details on the Maldives, his professional approach and organisation has been first class

Alwis (September 2014)
The best 1 week surfing holiday yet for me! Spent over 5 hours catching fun waves every day and that's despite being a bit unlucky with the swell. Food, beers, service and space on the boat were perfect for resting up for the next session.

Joe (September 2014)
Spent 10 days on the MV Cobia, the crew were fantastic. Especially Mohammad and his dancing wig! Didn't really get the swell/ wind windows for the central atolls but awesome set ups.
The waves around Male were great especially between jails up to chickens. Between 4/6ft every day. Loved the place .
Even had a visit from Brian, (one of the owners of perfect wave) just to check how things were going and to share a beer.
Great job guys, thumbs up from me
Joe

Garth (September 2014)
Overall mad trip scored some great waves and had some good luck with the weather also. All the lads on the boat had about the same ability in the water so no fighting for better or less heavy waves . I think that was the key for me . Never an argument about waves and where to go . The guide "horce" was a great bloke and knew his stuff . Seemed almost everyday we pulled up at a break it was pumping . The service and help on the boat was so so far above what I expected . From loading the boards into/out of the boat each sesh the crew did it all. By the end of the trip they could see me with the zinc on and they would just grab my board without me even asking. Food was so good . Never went hungry .. Nothing worse than starving after 3-4 hrs in the water . Plate after plate of food would come out till we were all stuffed ,haha they would laugh and just keep bringing it . Champs .

Already in talks with the boys about another 2 weeks in 6 to 12 months . You get a years amont of surfing in 2 weeks . Might just have to train a little before the nest one ... Arms are dead.

Cheers perfect wave
I'll be back !!

Dave (September 2014)
Great trip! Surfed everyday, 16 days straight. Waves were 2ft up to 4/5ft. Even when it was small there was lots of fun to be had. Great crew on he boat, great food, never had to lift a finger - these guys made the trip a real success. Would definitely do the same trip again and would recommend it to others.

Jason

We had a great time on the Cobia cruising thru the Maldive atolls. The staff where great and our surf guide was very knowledgeable of the area. Surf, Eat, Sleep repeat was the order for all of the days of our trip. Thanks for the memories.

The Perfect Wave Experience certainly delivered!Our surf guide catered for all surfing levels on board and landed us where we needed to be every time. He even sat at the end of the break on a 6 foot day and took some killer photos for us.I was expecting nice food on board, instead got restaurant quality buffets.The crew were discreet but always present to cater for our every need. Royal treatment.We`re already saving and planning our next trip.

I enjoyed my trip to the Maldives very much, Martey was an outstanding guide and all round good bloke and regularly put us onto uncrowded waves. The crew were great and the food awesome, the waves could have been bigger but we surfed nearly everyday which cannot be said about all surf trips.

The surf guide and crew aboard Cobia were fantastic. The food was first class. The fishing was really good. The surf varied from 1 to 2 foot most of the time to three or four days of 3 to 4 feet. Surfed every day and managed to avoid crowds. Weather was terrific.

The crew have been fantastic. Martey has done a great job finding waves in the conditions that we have had. (wind and small swell ) The 2 guys from Perth were after heavier , hollower waves than people in our group which was a little hard in some instances for some but all in all it was not a huge issue as Martey did his best to get everyone what they were comfortable with and also the swell wasn't big or hollow/ heavy often but we did find lots overhead which was great. Martey was great in managing the boat and ensuring all ran as smooth as possible. Great guy.The rest of the crew are friendly, funny and reliable and do a great job. The food is wonderful, really wonderful !!

Hi guys We are just finishing up our 12 day trip on the cobia down south and I thought I would give you some feedback The crew have been fantastic. Martey has done a great job finding waves in the conditions that we have had. (wind and small swell ) The 2 guys from Perth were after heavier , hollower waves than people in our group which was a little hard in some instances for some but all in all it was not a huge issue as Martey did his best to get everyone what they were comfortable with and also the swell wasn't big or hollow/ heavy often but we did find lots overhead which was great. Martey was great in managing the boat and ensuring all ran as smooth as possible. Great guy.The rest of the crew are friendly, funny and reliable and do a great job. The food is wonderful, really wonderful !!Fishing has been awesome. Great fish caught by all of us each night. Big Tuna, Cod , trevally etc. Awesome snorkeling and island hopping too 🙂 Waves have been not big but OK. Some breaks had had lots of people out but that's only been 2 times due to wind and swell conditions meaning all boats have to be at at the same break. Mostly we are surfing waves with just us out and no other or only 1 other boat so its been good in that respect. Waves have been ranging from 2~ 5 ft with some bigger sets. So all good !!One things you may want to look into is the timing of the arrival Flights into Male and the connecting domestic flight. Customs and immigration was very busy and we only made the connection by pushing past 100's of people and explaining that our flight was in 25 mins. They got us through and we ran to the connection and just made it. Brian was there to assist which was great. All in all its been good , great service and staff , weather , fishing and OK waves. I will come again.( if air con fixed lol )cheers,Mick
