The best adventure surf trip I could dream of.

What an operation! My aim was to take my 16 yo son on a “rite of passage” boat trip for his first and I couldn’t be happier with choosing the PNG Explorer. We got great surf and an amazing diverse adventure trip including great fishing, snorkeling and seriously authentic cultural activities. I wore a PNG Explorer shirt home through the airports and I was asked more than once about the operation. The only 2 questions I get are “Is it worth the money?” from surfers and “Is it safe?” from non-surfers. The answer to both is an emphatic YES. While this is the most expensive surf trip I’ve been on, it was also undoubtedly the best value. This is a seriously professional operation and absolutely no expense is spared to give clients the best trip possible. My last trip on the PNG Explorer was in 2012 and the improvements are vast, from improved layout of the big boat, to better tenders with 4 stroke motors and 2 Jetskis. I thought the Jetskis were bit of overkill when I first heard they had added them but after enjoying the convenience they offer I love them! Zero negatives to report!
