With unmatched cruising range and fuel allowance, we can travel from North Male as far south as Laamu atoll on this ten night charter. Wherever conditions command, we’ll take you there. This guarantees the best waves and the least amount of crowds. 

 Norm Hann Expeditions & Moon Tours invite you on this small group ten-night surf trip where you will be treated to a premier experience chasing the best waves with the  least amount of crowds. Travel further and surf a variety of waves all while cruising on one of the fastest and most luxurious motor yachts in town, your local Moon Tours host and surf guide along with professional SUP surf coach and expedition leader Norm Hann will maximise your progression with on and off the water feedback and analysis sessions. 

With Moon Tours highly qualified and experienced team including professional SUP coach Norm Hann, our range of SUNOVA surf SUPs and the world-class suitable waves the Maldives produces there is no doubt these are the best Stand Up Paddle surf trips in the world.

Stylishly designed this vessel provides maximum tranquillity at sea. Great detail has been given to achieve the highest standards for quietness and comfort. Our surf support boats are unrivalled with a modern speed boat and one of the largest, well-appointed 62′ Dhoni.

Sit back, relax, surf, dive, fish or drink cocktails from one of two bars onboard. 


A bucket list destination most people can only dream of, scattered across the equator in the middle of the Indian Ocean, the gem like islands of the Maldives depict the vision of a tropical paradise. Palm fringed islands with pristine beaches, turquoise lagoons, crystal clear warm water, stunning coral reefs and abundant varieties of marine life hosting a massive variety of world class waves that are now accessible to the travelling surfer.

There are 1,192 islands grouped in 26 coral atolls in the Maldives Republic, measuring 820 km’s north to south and 120 km’s east to west, the closest neighbours are India and Sri Lanka. People who have never been to the Maldives often have trouble comprehending that there is almost no land and the highest point above sea level is less than 10 feet.. It is sea with little pockets of coral dotted on top of an old volcanic mountain range. Only 202 of the islands are inhabited; there are no hills or rivers with little tidal movement.


Regardless of either boat or land based surf trip, the most important thing to remember as a SUP surfer, is that our itineraries, boats and whole product is designed around Stand Up Paddle surfing. You’ll be well catered for and among friends.

On a boat there are big advantages. No constraints, we can access all available surf breaks, most of which are not accessible from land. Escape the crowds and get to the best spots dependant on conditions. You have the opportunity to see more of the country and meet more of the people. You will find yourself on uninhabited island with a bon fire at sunset and a beer in your hand after a long days surfing. A boat gives you freedom.

Seasick? Very very few people get seasick on our boats, they are big and stable, we choose calm protected anchorages every night and we’ve never had anyone seasick at anchor.

We generally skip surfing at the super busy North Male atoll breaks but we’ll pick off some waves in South Male atoll on the way through to the Southern Central Atolls. We have a seemingly unlimited fuel allowance and will cruise as far as Laamu Atoll in the far southern central region on a 10 night or Meemu atoll on a seven nighter. This gives you the very best opportunity to score quality waves. We the type of waves our customers want and where to find them depending on the conditions.

At a land based surf resort you won’t have the same opportunity,  the wind, the swell and tides all need to align. Most resorts have one “private” wave option and limited to a couple of near by waves accessible by speedboat or surf Dhoni. Besides that, most resorts will allow up to 30 surfers on a “private wave”.


Whether your travelling solo, with a friend, family or with your partner. All our tours have been designed to entertain and cater for the non surfers while you are off getting the waves of your life.

Whats not to love about cruising around the Maldives on a luxury motor yacht, soaking up the sun on the roof top deck with a book in one hand a cocktail in the other? If thats to relaxed we have a PADI dive school & instructor onboard, inflatable paddle boards, cooking classes, yoga mats, snorkelling gear, in room TVs, WIFI and library. Fishing, island exploring, local interactions, clean up the beaches and photographers will be in awe.


Arriving on the day you will be met by an Adora and or a Moon Tours representative as you exit the international arrivals area. If you are arriving the day before you will not be a representative to meet your arrival.

10:am on the day we will gather at Male Airport in front of Coffee Club / Burger King, where you will board Adora shortly after. Male is a small airport so it is easy to find us.

*If you can not arrive before 12;30pm on day one, you will need to arrive the day before and overnight in Male or Hulhule Male as well as arrange your own way there and back to the airport. We can assist. See FAQs for accommodation options.

Typical 11-day tour

Here we have the opportunity to travel further and stay longer to maximise your surfing time and experience. If required we can travel as far south as Laamu Atoll.

What to Expect

Our SUP surf trips starts and ends in Male harbour, close to here, you will find the island nation’s most famous waves in nearby North Male Atoll, along with most of the boats and a bunch of land-based surf resorts and hostels combining together to cause massive congestion in the line ups. It is rare for us to surf in this area. Here you will find; Jailbreaks, Sultans, Cokes, Ninjas, Honky’s and private resort waves like Pastor Point.

SUP surfers will prefer our favourite waves in the central and southern central atolls, most only accessible by boat. These breaks have fewer crowds and offer perfect fuller waves and long rides for SUP surfers. In short, it’s SUP heaven. They can still hold some size but remain very rippable on a foil. There are heavy barreling waves in the area but don’t expect to be surfing them as your main priority. It’s a SUP trip.

A surf trip should be flexible, not locked into strict daily miles or locations. Our trips are based around Mother natures plans for the swell and wind. Because of this, we are ultimately flexible up until the last minute and during the whole trip.

With a massive fuel and mileage allowance we have the luxury to travel further than any standard charter, which gets you away from the crowds and into the best waves. Rest assured, you will get what you are looking for with this outstanding boat, experienced crew, local surf guide and Moon Tours representatives that know the area well.

Last Day
If conditions and cruising timing work out a morning session will be offered before departing Adora at 11 am at Male Airport.
Any flights booked after 1 pm will be safe. In some cases, late checkout of the yacht is an option.
If you would like to catch an earlier flight out of Male a private speedboat transfer can be arranged from our last morning’s surf location. Allow USD$200 private transfer. A water taxi may be available for $50 depending on the final nights’ location.

Your trip will come up fast, as it does you will see reminders come through your inbox with your balance becoming due 90 days prior to travel. You have a number of ways to pay the balance.

International Bank Transfer

You will find our USD banking details on the invoice. This is an international transaction, please select the sender to pay fees as only the amount received in our account will be applied to the invoice.

AUD bank transfer (Australian residents only $50AUD fee to be added to the transfer amount) 

You will find our AUD bank details on the invoice also.

Please use the NAB foreign exchange calculator (link below) to work out how much AUD you need to transfer and then add $50AUD so we can transfer it into our USD account for you. *You may get better rates doing the international transaction yourself but for some, this is simply easier and less hassle.

*The AUD / USD rates fluctuate by the minute, while we endeavour to transfer the AUD funds we receive as soon as possible the rate may have changed in the meantime therefore the rate and amount you send us is not 100% guaranteed to cover the USD amount required. Generally, it’s going to be close but if there is a shortfall we may ask you to make another AUD transfer.

Wise money transfer. Money transfer services likewise have become more popular and generally offer better rates than regular banks. A number of clients have used this service with good results but you need to do your own research and decide if this type of service are good for you. We can’t advise you on this.

Credit or Debit card. 

We accept Visa and MasterCard BUT there is a 4.5% merchant fee that can’t be avoided on USD transactions which will be added to the amount being paid.


It is a requirement of Moon Tours that you have private travel insurance which covers cancellations,  emergency medical attention and evacuation, the rest is important but inconsequential compared to the aforementioned if you need it. Moon Tours insurance does not cover you. We recommend you invest in Travel Insurance as soon as you have booked and confirmed your holiday. Brett from Hello World can assist if you chose.

When choosing your cover you might first look at your equipment cover when actually you should be looking at medical cover and emergency medical evacuation. This is the number one thing to consider when booking any travel insurance.


Let us know what you plan to bring.

”If you’re a surfer riding a smaller board or simply love riding your favourite board, we encourage you to bring it! There is no problem bringing your own board and it’s pretty easy travelling with airlines like Singapore, Qatar and Air Asia for example”

If you want to leave your board at home and book one of our SUNOVA SUPs for sole use you can do so for $250AUD included in the fee is one minor deck repair. No there will not be a refund if you don’t damage the board but it gives you some piece of mind that we’re fair and reasonable when you book one of our boards.


This service is for people who don’t want to or can’t travel with their own SUP, we do not offer boards for sole use if you are bringing your own. We generally have some spares on the boat if you break your board beyond ridable (which hasn’t happened yet) or if there is a board available that you would like to demo. Repair terms apply and would be expected you use it once or twice to try, any more than that and you will need to pay the hire rate.

Please check with us to see if we have something suitable available. Our SUPs are on a first come first serve basis and subject to availability. If you chose to book a Moon Tours SUP it is your responsibility to inspect the board prior to use and note any pre-existing damage to your guides and Moon Tours hosts. You are responsible for the equipment loaned to you for the duration of the trip as if it were your own and you will be required to cover any repair costs.

Minimum $50USD for small deck dings, punctures or cracks that can be repaired on the boat without major work.

Rails / major repairs minimum $100USD. Most of the time we can temporarily repair a board on the boat to keep you going but that doesn’t mean it is not a major repair. The board may have to be repaired on land or carried back to Australia or Thailand for repairs in rare circumstances.

Snapped / creased written-off boards (which hasn’t happened yet) will be charged at the current second-hand market rate and you get to keep it as a memento.

Please note that boards can become unavailable at any time due to damage. We will try our best to supplement to the closest available board.


Pack your favorite SUP. It’s easy to travel with boards up to 9’6, with some airlines claiming up to 9’8 and even 10′ – make sure you check with your airline before booking flights.For easy traveling with multiple SUPs, we use and recommend ‘ Flying Objects SUP roller bags’ they come in a few sizes 8’0, 8’6, 9’0, 9’6.
