Embark on a shared or private ‘surfari’ aboard Four Seasons Explorer with Tropicsurf of Noosa, Australia, complete with five-star service and style, expert guides, world-class waves, secluded swells, and endless enjoyment of the Maldives' vast and awe-inspiring seascapes. It’s the ultimate way to conquer empty surf breaks, visit secret sites in the outer atolls and follow the best conditions – encapsulating the spirit of surfing 24/7.
Travel with your board or use ours. Tropicsurf’s onboard selection of Firewire shortboards, fishes, hybrids and longboards will ensure you have a board on hand for all seasons and conditions. Our all-inclusive surf itineraries feature superlative international cuisine, a cellar of fine wines and sea sports such as snorkelling, stand-up paddleboarding, kayaking, waterskiing, and deep-sea and sunset fishing. Round out your charter with island tours, and enjoy beach barbecues and spa treatments onboard or on secluded sandbanks.
- A resort at sea
Savour international cuisine at the onboard air-conditioned restaurant or on the al fresco aft deck. Relax on one of two sun decks, at the outdoor bar, or in the lounge or library. Retire to your air-conditioned sunlit cabin or the large Explorer Suite, complete with an en-suite bathroom, minibar, LCD TV, Wi-Fi access and twice-daily housekeeping.
- Waves of wonder
Sophisticated web forecasting allows the team to accurately determine swell and wind forecasts. The complex bathymetry of the atolls means there are often hidden gems that others simply do not know about. The result? Surfers get to visit remote regions, ride pure and uncrowded waves, and experience the spirit and true freedom of surfing at its sublime and soulful best.
Spending time aboard the Four Seasons Explorer with my family at the Champions Trophy event was an all-time highlight for me. There really is no better live-aboard surf charter in the world. It’s the ultimate base camp to launch your daily surf excursions, knowing that your companions are as comfortable, engaged and enthralled as you are thanks to the attentive Four Seasons Explorer team.Josh Kerr World Championship Tour veteran and two-time winner of the SCT 2018 & 2019
