    Croisière surf aux Maldives

    11 jours de rêve entre sessions de surf, snorkeling avec la faune marine, baignades, navigation sur mer calme, bonne ambiance à bord etc… Le personnel du bateau était aux petits soins, rien à redire sauf que les spots de surf, bien qu’accessibles par bateau pour la plupart, sont en fait très fréquentés ( parfois jusqu’à 35 personnes à l’eau…)
