About The Activity
Here, the most accessible marine spectator sport is watching Dolphin. There are whales around the Maldives. Maldives' waves can't be considered super powerful, as the swell normally reaches shoulder-to-head high, but it offers big chances of barrels and long fun waves. It's the perfect trip for intermediate and advanced surfers.
The surfing season in the Maldives depends on the Atolls, but most of the archipelago is good for surfing from April till October, yet March and November are also good and have the best weather.
Swell is amazingly consistent in this part of the planet, but even on flat days there's always something exciting to do in the Maldives, like snorkeling or fishing.
The entire archipelago can be divided into three different surf areas: Male Atolls, Central Atolls and South Atolls. The main differences between them are about swell size, consistency and most of all in crowd.
There are some great surfing spots in the country, but just a few are easily accessible from resorts. The best breaks are on the outer reefs on the southeast sides of the atolls.
Most of the spots are very close to each other, so finding good surf is easy. The best way to reach them is, no doubt, by boat. Some of them are nameless and yet to be found especially in Central and South Atolls.
The best thing about the boat trip in the Maldives is the feeling of discovery, surfing perfect waves with no crowd in the water. Just you and your friends. Please note that you can only have this experience in Central and South Atolls. Male Atolls can be quite crowded, especially between May and August.
