The Surf Sojourn, captained by Hussain, is an experienced surfing safari boat that operates in the Maldives Islands.  


It offers an exclusive surfing adventure where small groups of 4-10 surfers are able to charter the boat where they will be taken to new and relatively unknown waves.  


 

There are 5 twin cabins, so the boat is able to take up to 10 surfers, which all have en-suite bathrooms, air conditioning, new bed linen and towels. Capacity on open charters is set at 8 surfers to ensure a comfortable trip and the best small group experience in the water!


If you are feeling hungry, the food onboard is very tasty, with fresh fish dinners and sashimi as highlights of the cuisine that will satisfy your appetite.  


In 2017, the Surf Sojourn was upgraded and now offers a beautiful shaded Bimini sundeck and board racks that are more than able to accommodate your surfboards.  


Explore and surf the Central Atolls in the Maldives, and discover waves away from the crowds on board the Surf Sojourn with The Perfect Wave.

Your surf guide on the Surf Sojourn is employed full-time by TPW Maldives and trained by ISA (International Surf Association) as a Surf instructor and SGA (Surf Guide Association) in safety, rescue, first aid and hospitality. All our hand-selected, well-trained guides have been running surf charters for many years, and are the best and most experienced in the Maldives.

    Although Surf Sojourn is a smaller boat, internally it cruises much faster, it's noticeable when moving around the Atoll. Definitely a positive, air con in each cabin @ 24 hrs is excellent. Sri Lankan Chef on Surf Sojourn is able to vary meals, far more so than other charters I have been on.


    Matt (April 2018)

    The Surf Sojourn is a great boat to explore the Southern Atolls. The crew know their work and keep the service up to a high standard. We were lucky to have a cabin each with ensuite, however, the cabins are small and it would be a tight squeeze if you had to share. Food was good with plenty of rice and fish, and some amazing Sri Lankan curries. There was plenty of swell down south and at Laamu Atoll, and I think that Laamu has the best barrels in the Maldives.


    Arnaud Moreau (October 2017),

    A trip of a life time ! Uncrowded spot, good waves, amazing weather and very pleasant experience on the boat.

    Manlio Stefano Longinotti (October 2017),

    Wonderful holiday and excellent waves.The trip has been amazing.

    Jose Nunes (October 2017)

    In general terms, the experience in the experience in the boat (Surf Soujorn) was very good. The crew was very helpful and well trained and the food was great and delicious. Also our surf guide (Reehan) showed great knowledge about the surf spots rounding Male, which permitted a great week of waves

    Salvador (October 2017)

    it was an incredible trip with the best waves in the Maldives, traditional boat and great conditions in general.  It was clean, comfortable, stable when motoring, cabins with AC and a clean bathroom.  AMAZING crew!!We were taken to very good waves in each famous spot  in the north and south Male atolls every day and we also had some good diving, fishing and tours of the islands!!
    All in all, it was a 5 star trip and we will try and do it again next year!

     David Seglar (September 2017),

    We only can say, wonderful, awesome...

    Daniel Briglia (Sept 2017),

    On the surf sojourn it was much the same, great waves, great boat and amazing crew. Food was epic.

     Sunny Phillips, August 2017.

    My time on the Sojourn was delightful the chef catered for my dietary requirements. All the crew were friendly and great boatmen carrying us to the breaks loading surfboards and tired bodies on and off the tender.

    Chris (March 2017)
    Maldives, great experience, no hassles or dramas from booking to pick up & drop off with quality waves on offer & the experienced crew at the perfect wave in & out of the water - made for an excellent holiday!!
