MV Adora is one of the most beautiful vessels cruising the Malé Atolls. This state-of-the-art 123 ft tri-deck luxury yacht operates surf charters in the Maldives from May through to October and provides a truly unforgettable way to explore this beautiful region of the world.
This luxury boat is owned by a local Maldivian family who ensure every surf charter is a truly exceptional experience. MV Adora has 11 cabins that can accommodate up to 21 guests, however to ensure your trip is as comfortable as possible, we set a maximum of 12 surfers on each charter, so there’s a big chance you’ll get a cabin to yourself.
Once on board MV Adora, you’re guaranteed a memorable adventure. The team is committed to excellence and will go above and beyond to make this trip one you’ll remember forever.
Luxury that’s affordable
MV Adora is luxurious in every way, making it the perfect boat for couples and families with non-surfers. Motor through the Maldives in air-conditioned comfort as you search for your next wave, or have a drink on the huge sundeck which resembles a rooftop terrace bar, rather than the roof of a boat.
There are plenty of non-surfing activities to keep everyone entertained day-in, day-out on MV Adora. The 65 ft support dhoni can be loaded with stand-up paddleboards, fishing equipment and scuba-diving equipment, while still having ample room for your quiver of surfboards.

Surf MV Adora – Male Atolls
With a great variety of reef breaks ranging in intensity from mellow, shreddable walls to gnarly, hollow pits, the Malé Atolls has something for every surfer.
MV Adora operates in the Malé Atolls from May through to October, with predominantly off-shore conditions all day and a swell direction of South/South East (SSE). Generally, surf ranges in size from 2 to 8 ft, with bigger pulses coming through every so often.
For those who want to surf a wider variety of waves, there’s an option to add on the Central Atolls for an additional surcharge.
NORTH MALÉ ATOLL
Previously off-limits, Jailbreaks is a long right-hander with three sections, including a mid-barrel section. When it’s lining up right, you can expect a super-fun 300m ride!
Travelling 20 minutes north, you’ll find this fun right-hander which breaks off Kani Resort. It’s great for beginners to intermediate surfers. With an easier take-off, on smaller days Ninjas is good for longboarders or cruising on a fish, and on bigger swells it’s lots of fun on a shortboard.
If you travel another 25 minutes you’ll come across one of the more well-known waves in the region. Cokes is a hollow right-hander which breaks at between 3 to 10 ft. It’s more protected from the southerly winds than Lohis and offers up deep tube rides for the more experienced surfers.
On the other side of Cokes, Chickens is the fastest left-hander in the North Malé Atoll. It’s a swell magnet and can handle swell from 3 to over 10 ft, with rides up to 500m long.
SOUTH MALÉ ATOLL
Speak with the experienced World Surfaris surf guides about surfing the South Malé Atoll, about a two hour boat trip from the North Malé Atoll. There are several breaks in this area that perform well in the right conditions.
Tucky Joes’ left works in a big south east swell and delivers solid barrels and fun rides. Riptides is also super-fun in bigger conditions
Experienced Surf Guides
On a surf charter you need an experienced surf guide with knowledge of the local surf breaks. On board MV Adora we provide the most experienced surf guides you will ever meet, many of whom grew up surfing the area.
The World Surfaris surf guides are constantly checking surf conditions. They stay in contact with other skippers/surf guides in the area to find fun and empty waves for guests staying on board MV Adora.
You don’t have to be a surfer to have fun on board MV Adora in the Malé Atolls, there are plenty of other things to see and do.
MV Adora guests can grab some fins and a snorkel to explore the crystal clear waters packed with tropical fish, or jump on a stand-up paddleboard and venture to the closest white sandy beach.
