Surf from on board the stylishly designed Adora which provides maximum tranquillity at sea. Great detail has been given to achieve the highest standards for quietness and comfort. Your captain, a local surf guide and Moon Tours representative will have you on the perfect wave. With unmatched cruising range and fuel allowance, you can travel from North Male to Laamu Atolls and even the lesser visited west coast. This guarantees the best waves and least amount of crowds. With Moon Tours' highly qualified and experienced team including surf, paddle, foil coaching, their range of Sunova surf SUPs, and the world-class suitable waves the Maldives produces, there is no doubt this is one of the best SUP surf trips in the world. Sit back, relax, surf, dive, or drink cocktails from one of two bars on board!
Adora is a relatively new vessel built in 2014. She’s a 123 foot tri-deck fibreglass motor yacht featuring 11 spacious cabins each with private full sized ensuites. Enjoy ocean views from your private balcony in the four ocean view suites or find your sanctuary in one of the large private lower deck cabins.
All cabins are appointed with lounge seating, minibar fridge, independently controlled AC, TV with music and movie channels, plenty of storage, daily cleaning, laundry, and room service.
Stylishly designed, the yacht provides maximum tranquillity at sea. Adora features large air conditioned interior, as well as shaded and sun soaked exterior living spaces. There is a a fully stocked bar and an impressive sundeck for those magnificent sunset drinks. Great detail has been given to achieve the highest standards for quietness and comfort.
Arriving on the day, you will be met by an Adora and/or a Moon Tours' representative as you exit the international arrivals area. If you are arriving the day before, you will not be met with a representative to meet your arrival.
At 10 a.m. on the day, you will gather at Ibrahim Nasir International Airport (MLE) in front of Coffee Club / Burger King, where you will board Adora shortly after. It's a small airport, so its easy to find the representative.
If you cannot arrive by 10 a.m. on day one, you will need to arrive the day before and overnight in Male or Hulhule Male as well as arrange your own way there and back to the airport.
Here, you have the opportunity to travel further and stay longer to maximise your surfing time and experience. If required, you can travel as far south as Laamu Atoll.
This SUP surf trip start and ends in Male harbour. Close to here, you will find the island nation's most famous waves in nearby North Male Atoll, along with most of the boats and a bunch of land-based surf resorts and hostels combining together to cause massive congestion in the line ups. It is rare for Moon Tours to surf this area. Here, you will find Jailbreaks, Sultans, Cokes, Ninja’s, Honky’s, and private resort waves like Pastor Point.
SUP surfers will prefer Moon Tours' favourite waves in the central and southern central atolls, most only accessible by boat. These breaks have less crowds and offer perfect fuller waves and long rides for SUP surfers. In short, it’s SUP heaven. They can still hold some size but remain very rip-able on a SUP. There are heavy barreling waves in the area but don’t expect to be surfing them as your main priority. It’s a SUP trip.
A surf trip should be flexible, not locked into strict daily miles or locations. The trips are based around mother nature's plans for the swell and wind. Because of this, Moon Tours is ultimately flexible up until the last minute and during the whole trip.
With a massive fuel and mileage allowance, you have the luxury to travel further than any standard charter, that gets you away from the crowds and into the best waves. Rest assured, you will get what you are looking for with this outstanding boat, experienced crew, local surf guide, and Moon Tours representatives that know the area well.
If conditions and cruising timing works out, a morning surf will be offered before departing Adora at 11 a.m. at Ibrahim Nasir International Airport (MLE). Any flights booked after 1 p.m. will be safe.
If you would like to catch an earlier flight out of Male, a private speedboat transfer can be arranged from the last morning's surf location. Allow 200 USD for a private transfer. A water taxi may be available for 50 USD depending on the final night's location.
During relatively recent times, surfing in the Maldives has attracted many surfers from all over the world. The same swells hitting Indonesia deliver the goods to the Maldives except that the latitude is a little higher and the SE exposure has less energy. It is fast becoming one of the world's hot spots for surfing, as it is right now, with the right know how and where too, you can still find yourself surfing empty line ups with you and your mates.

There are three main surfing areas:
North and South Male Atoll the surf season runs from April to October during the South-West Monsoons. The bigger swells run from May to August with 2 to 8 ft waves on offer all season. North Male is by far the busiest place to surf in the Maldives. With an upwelling of land based hostels and resorts catering for surfers and the ability to cater for the budget conscious, along with most boat trips focussing on the same area it is not uncommon to find 50 people or more on a wave. When the swell get’s tiny North Male may be the only option as a swell magnet but this is rare. When the swell gets big North Male creates soul arching barrels and heavy hold downs on the reef.
Central & Southern Central Atoll chain standard waves are long and clean with size varying between 2 and 8ft. During southern hemisphere winter (April-October), it’s pretty much never flat with endless choices of waves working in all wind and swell direction. This is where we focus much of our attention. We can’t mention wave names here for good reason, but rest assured you need a boat to access most of them and will often find yourself in an empty line up.
Deep South / Southern Atolls right at the southern point of the Maldives are best for surf from February to April and from September to November, there are always waves in the area but the winds become very strong at other times of the year. Getting here is tricky with SUP’s on a local flight. Basically at this stage it is not possible. Don’t be bummed though, wave choice is less suitable for SUP’s and there are less options.
The package includes full board breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks. Tea and coffee (instant) are available 24 hours. You also get unlimited filtered drinking water and a reusable bottle. Two beers, wines, or soft drinks are included per person per day.
Watch the professional chefs cooking through a viewing window next to the bar, as they serve up three tasty meals a day as well as some pre and post surf snacks. If for some reason you haven’t had your fill, let them know and they can have something whipped up for you.
The menu covers a wide range of different international cuisines blended together for you to enjoy using the freshest and local ingredients available. A variety of meat and vegetarian meals will be available. There will be fresh fruit, vegetables, and energising meals to keep you surfing longer.
With prior notice, special dietary requests can be catered for as well as any special occasion; birthday celebrations, anniversaries, or maybe it’s special family and friends holidaying together.
Dine with your toes in the sand with a beach barbecue on a deserted island, in the comfort of the fully air conditioned dining room or opt for private roof top dinner under the stars with your partner.
Adora has the best value bar prices in the Maldives (up to 50% on comparison). But don’t drink too much, as Moon Tours doesn’t want you to miss out on epic waves. At the end of the day though, it is your holiday and you can do what you want.
2 beers, wines, or soft drinks per day are included for each guest. Any additional beverages purchased are charged upon check out and can be settled with a credit card or USD cash.
Top shelf liquor, wine, and bubbly can be pre-purchased subject to availability on the proviso the whole bottle is purchased up front on the boat regardless of whether or not the bottle is finished. Orders need to be placed within four weeks of the start date.
Surfers, non-surfers, family, and friends are all welcome. As a non-surfer, you will love cruising the picturesque Maldives onboard Adora. Moon Tours has purposely tailored this luxury adventure holiday to cater for non surfing partners and friends, making sure there is plenty on offer for everyone.
