FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
DO WE STAY AT AN HOTEL OR ON THE BOAT THE WHOLE 7 NIGHTS?
This trip is a safari on board MYNA, a 27 meters vessel.
We will sleep and have all our meals on the boat, for the entire trip.

DO I NEED TO BE AN ADVANCED SURFER IN ORDER TO PARTICIPATE ?
No you don't. This is a multi activity trip that includes surfing and much more.

If you don't surf at all, you will enjoy the spa treatments and all the activities and excursions planned.
IS SURFING AND THE OTHER EXPERIENCES GUARANTEED ?
We can control many things, but we can't control the weather or the wildlife.
When we surf, we are at the mercy of Mother Nature, who decides when to create perfect waves.
Therefore we cannot guarantee surfing, but we will definitely go look for waves all around the North and South Male Atoll and the famous surf spots like Cokes and Ninjas, as well as less known spots. Other activities are also subject to weather conditions, and in case of adverse weather conditions the captain has the right to change the schedule of what's planned.
