Surf Sojourn is one of the most experienced surf safari boats working the Maldives island chain. With its captain Hussain, who has been onboard since its launch date, this safari has seen all there is to be seen in the Maldives, most importantly, every Maldives surf point has been explored by this safari.

 

This surf charter takes individual or exclusive bookings, and you can have this boat exclusively with a group of your surfing mates with a group as little as 4 surfers.

 

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

 

The cabins all with ensuites and air conditioning offer you a very comfortable experience and the food is second to none. The cook is also very long serving on this safari and the crew as a whole love to fish. Fresh fish dinners and sashimi are a highlight on Surf Sojourn.

 

Upgrades to Surf Sojourn for 2017 include a shaded bimimi sundeck, board racks to comfortably accommodate your surfboards and all new bed linen and bath towels.

 

Surf Sojourn is a great value for money safari and with its experienced crew, she will deliver in 2018 and beyond. 

 

The schedule for Surf Sojourn is very flexible, the standard 7 day and 14 day charters are based in the Male Atolls which offer the best value. However the Surf Sojourn is well suited to extended itineraries to outer atolls in search of uncrowded waves. Ask about our 10 night or more"Total Maldives" trips

 

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. For 10 nights we suggest cruising from and returning to Male as this avoids the cost and baggage restrictions of domestic airfares. 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 the Surf Sojourn with The Perfect Wave, and experience this truly awesome surf destination.

 

You will have the most experienced surf guide in the Maldives, with 16 years experience all accumulated on safari boats, starting on Rani Safari and for the last 8 years guiding Handhu, Handhu Fahli, Cobia and Hamathi - 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. He is 35 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.

Roger Manson (September 2017)

Great surf daily and excellent service/food from the boat crew. The boat manager Gobi was awesome and always accommodating. Glen, our Perfect Wave consultant was always quick to respond to any queries we had. And our surf guide Nathu was able to score us fun waves every day. Can't wait for our next trip back.
