Crowd dodging itineraries

From May to October, the Handhu surf charter will be deployed for 10 Night Central Atoll Trips. The charters will start in Male and finish in Male, giving the trip more flexibility to chase waves around the Central Atolls and Male Atolls. There are 6 atolls between Male and Laamu and the conditions can now dictate where you surf and not a domestic flight itinerary. Your expert guide will find you an abundance of surf East and West of the Central Atolls with the option of a sneaky session in the North Male Atolls to finish the trip.

About Handhu

Launched in February 2004, Handhu is a 95 ft vessel built specifically for surf charters. Unlike other Maldivian vessels that operate diving charters plus some surf trips, Handhu is 100% dedicated to surf trips. The massive interior saloon area is fully air-conditioned with all the latest electronic entertainment equipment (large flat screen TV, DVD, stereo system etc). There is a massive lounge / dining area that easily seats a dozen guests in comfort. The bar is well-stocked with European beer, Australian wine and a variety of spirits plus a large variety of soft drinks. Tea, coffee and drinking water are included in the package price. Outside, the deck space is huge with a large undercover alfresco lounge / dining area capable of seating at least 15 people. This is the favourite dining area, as it allows guests to escape the hot Maldivian sun, yet still remain outdoors, capturing cool ocean breezes whilst watching the surf break nearby. An outside stairwell leads to a massive sundeck with bench seating around the perimeter. This is the ideal party venue at the end of a hard day's surfing with a few cold drinks and the stereo pumping out the tunes whilst watching the sun set over the islands. The aft deck is ideal for game fishing and even the most accomplished game fishermen will be impressed with the set-up. There are two outdoor showers for rinsing the salt water off after your surf, snorkel or swim.
