Dreamweaver takes you away from the crowds to some great out of the way surf spots, and wont break the bank !
A great option for a quick surf trip compared to Mentawai trips, much cheaper and less travel time and hassles. Fly into Bali and depart the next day for a week of great surf, then you can be back home a day after he trip is over or stay on in Bali as long as you want. No long overland hauls or connecting flights to deal with.
You will be accommodated on board MV Dreamweaver. Dreamweaver is a very comfortable and roomy boat to travel on, unlike some of the other boats that used to operate out of Bali, none of them are operating anymore because they were all badly maintained, cramped, and did not offer a good trip.
MV Dreamweaver sleeps up to 14 guests comfortably in large bunk style beds. There is ample storage space for packs and surfboards, a large covered open-air dining area, a large rooftop deck ideal for kicking back with a beer under the stars, a very well-stocked kitchen that produces some amazing meals despite its small size, a fully air-conditioned lounge, and a sleeping area below deck.
Dreamweaver has recently completed a full hull rebuild and interior renovation, plus a new wheelhouse and a rooftop deck that has effectively doubled the deck space, and is great surf viewing area and a nice place to sleep under the stars.
Dreamweaver has also fitted a new turbocharged main engine, new prop, and gearbox, so they have gained a bit of speed so even less traveling time between waves. Over the last couple of years, Dreamweaver has made numerous other improvements and changes. There are two 240 volt gensets so Dreamweaver can run air-conditioning 24/7, an indoor fresh water shower, and Western-style flushing toilet.
Private charters are also available for any size group up to the maximum of 14. If you want a private charter for a group of 10 or less, please let Dreamweaver know how many people you have and they can do a bit of discount on those prices.

The boat has more room inside and on deck. The room features big comfortable beds, indoor fresh water shower, and toilet. Overall, Dreamweaver is the best-equipped surf charter boat to get you the most waves and give you the best value for money surf trip in Bali.
Your eight-day and a seven-night adventure begin at approximately 07:00 on the first day. Dreamweaver’s luxury air-conditioned vehicles will pick you up at the door of your hotel and take you to Serangan Beach where you will board the boat.
From there, you will embark on a leisurely boat trip across the Badung Strait to beautiful Nusa Lembongan where you will be straight into the surf at Shipwrecks, Lacerations, Razors, Playground, and Cenigans. You can also go ashore to check out the local villages if you wish.
Very early the next morning, while you are still asleep, the crew will up anchor and head for the island of Lombok, where your adventure really begins at one of the longest, and best, left hand tubes in the world, Desert Point.
From here on, it is up to you and the other guests along with the captain and his knowledge and experience as to where you go for the next six days. There are a number of well-known breaks along the south Lombok coast and Dreamweaver also has some very nice secret spots. Of course, you will surf in Scar Reef, Supersucks, and YoYo’s on Sumbawa
You will arrive back to Serangan Beach in Bali on the morning of the eight day, one day longer than any other boat. Dreamweaver will then arrange transport back to your hotel, again in air-conditioned vehicles.
The private charter rate is a good discount when you consider that the only variables from one trip to the next is the amount of food and drink you buy, fuel and wages etc are always the same, if you book 14 people at 1,800 AUD per head it is 25,200 AUD so you save 3,200 AUD and the boat is exclusively yours. Dreamweaver will not take any other bookings on that trip.
All you need to lock in your seats is a deposit of 30%, the balance is not due until 30 days before the trip date.
When you factor in the price of hotels, meals, land transport and day trips to the surf spots around Bali a boat trip is a very affordable option, a boat charter gets you away from the hustle of Bali and into some pristine surf spots away from all the crowds. You save a lot of hassles and traveling time and end up with a lot more quality surfing time. It's pretty awesome to be able to wake up only a short dinghy ride from the surf as opposed to dealing with the Bali traffic and the crowds.
Dreamweaver will take you to all the well-known favorites surf spots like Desert Point, Nusa Lembongan, Scar Reef, YoYos, and Super Sucks. They have always been the only boat that can access all those uncrowded and largely unsurfed waves along the south coast of Lombok like Mawi, Eckas Bay, Belongas, Grupuk, and more.
You will get to surf waves that a lot of people never see, and a lot of the best waves in this part of Indonesia are on the south Lombok coast. It picks up more swell and is far more consistent. Dreamweaver also has a couple of great little secret spots that can only be accessed by boat.
Desert Point is a long walled and incredibly hollow left-hander that on its day can break up to 300 meters, growing in size from takeoff to end. It has been called the best left-hander in the world. If you get it when it's on, you will never forget it! The best wave height is between three to eight feet
This is a fairly typical Indo reef break. It is nice and consistent with powerful long rides when the swell picks up. Sensitive to winds, it's better during the raining season with North-East winds.
It has two main peaks; the right which is a good peaky right on the west side and can be powerful, and the left which is at the east side of the bay. It doesn’t always work, but very good when it's on.
Gerupuk is a huge bay about seven kilometers east of Kuta. On a big day, Gerupuk offers a few different breaks around the bay that can handle any winds as it is protected and surrounded by hills.
Inside Gerupuk or Bumbang Bay is a fun right-hander suitable for all levels of ability breaking over a flat reef and sand bottom. The big days of southwest swell can be a great time to surf it. This break is surfable any time of the year, best on the incoming tide.
Gerupuk Outside or Gili Golong, a right-hander, good at mid to high tide. It is a huge wave and big take off at the point, then a long ride when you get to the inside section, which can be fast and hollow up to a maximum of 10 foot.
Don-Don is a right and left-hand peak suitable for all abilities. It can be a really fun break, especially on a bigger swell, best on an outgoing tide. Meanwhile, Pelawangan is another right-hander for beginners, can get very hollow on the right tide and swell.
Ekas Bay is located on the east side of Kuta. It is a reef break which has two spots. Outside Ekas is a good left-hander close to the entrance of the channel that can break for up to 200 meters on the right day.
Inside Ekas is a rippable peak on a bigger swell, the left from mid to high tide and the right from mid to low tide. It is hollow and barreling on the inside section and can get very good when the winds are light, the maximum height is eight foot.
Shipwrecks is the most famous and most surfed of all the waves on Nusa Lembongan. This right produces a good wall for maneuvers and, depending on the tide, good tubes. The best at medium tide with a four to six-foot swell, but it can get bigger on a good day.
Lacerations is a powerful and very hollow right-hander that can produce some of the best barrels around if the swell direction is right. It is best at medium tide with a swell of three to eight feet.
Playground is right and left peak with a soft coral bottom. It is very easy and fun to surf as well as being a favorite for inexperienced to advanced surfers. It is best with medium swell (four to six foot) and medium or high tide.
It is a long walled left peak where you drive into several backdoor sections, all offering tube rides to write home about. The best surf is between two to ten feet but easily gets bigger than that for the chargers. There is also a smaller right hander on the inside reef on the bigger days.
Super Sucks is one of the crown jewels of Indonesian surfing. It has been called the longest and most intense tube ever ridden. Breaking over a live coral reef, this wave reels faultlessly for 150 meters. It's get pitted from takeoff to exit with no top turns here when it’s on! The best wave is between three to six feet.
YoYo's catches any swell. It consists of two rights, one a wedge peak breaking off a cliff face and the other is a long walled right reef in the middle of the bay. YoYo is usually surfed when everywhere else is small. The best wave is between two to six feet but has been surfed at up to 12 feet and bigger.
