The Cobia accommodates a maximum of 9 passengers though for optimal comfort we recommend 8 people exclusively just for you and your mates. Perfect for group surf charters, all girl surf trips, longboarders, bodyboarders, kneeboarders or paddle boarders. Places can also be booked by individual travellers. Book the central and Male atolls or the southern atolls, see prices below.
The Gaafu Dhaalu Atoll area offers the greatest quantity and variety of spots. It picks up more swell than any other Atoll in the Maldives and from every direction.
Works best in March, April and September to November. On almost every island on the outside of the atoll you will find one or two breaks. There is everything from barreling and hollow walls to soft and never ending playful waves.
After you arrive in Male you will fly down south where our guide will pick you up at the local airport in the Gaafu Dhaalu Atoll. You then set off to one of the main 8 breaks or to some of the other less known spots. Depending on the wind direction our experienced surf guide will find spots for you that are working best at the time. Most days you will surf up to 6 hours or even longer. After some of the best surf of your life you will be dropped off at the Gaafu Dhaalu airport and flown back to Male.

If your surf trip involves a Maldives domestic flight: The Perfect Wave cannot be held responsible for your surfboards arriving late (on the next domestic flight). If this happens, it’s due to weight restrictions on Maldivian domestic flights, which is out of our control.
