Come and discover the 1,199 or so islands that make up the Maldives, a paradise destination. Located in the northern Indian Ocean, these islands are grouped into 26 atolls. During your 10-day cruise, you will sail and surf in the south of the archipelago, in the Huvadhoo atoll. Still little frequented, the place is ideal to catch the waves and explore the seabed in complete serenity. The local crew will also propose you other activities depending on your stopover (snorkeling, fishing, hiking...).
The best season for surfing in the Maldives is from March to October.
Your adventure will take place aboard the yacht Horizon II. This traditional wooden boat is 25 meters long and has 3 decks. You will enjoy delicious local dishes prepared by the crew on the main deck. You will have the choice between the indoor dining room at the stern and the outdoor table at the front of the boat. At the end of the day, you can relax on the sun deck and enjoy the view of the atolls from the deckchairs.
