Ocean Oasis is a modern, 108’, glass fiber motor yacht powered by twin 360hp marine diesel engines. On Inner & Central Atolls surf charters the Ocean Oasis is accompanied by two tender boats; an 18’ dinghy with 40hp outboard motor and a 55’ motorized dhoni. The tender boats provide optimum access to the surf breaks, and enable groups of surfers to try different waves.

Surf

Surf

The Surf Season runs from mid February to November, when low pressure systems in the southern Indian Ocean generate consistent swells. The early part of the season has the most stable weather, with light, favorable winds. Swell consistency and size improves from February, with March, April and May having very clean conditions.

June to August have the most potential for big swells, although tropical storms can be more common in these months.

September and October are also very consistent months for swell, with winds less variable and tropical storms becoming less frequent. November is still quite consistent for small to medium size waves and the weather is usually perfect for a beach holiday.

Ocean Oasis operates on a ‘request’ basis only for full groups and arrangements can be made at the time of booking for the yacht to be positioned anywhere throughout the atolls. Our experienced surf guides will make sure you are in the right place at the right time.

Seasons & Weather

Seasons & Weather

The Maldives in the middle of the Indian Ocean is known as the flattest country in the world. The highest point in all of the Maldives is less than 10 feet above sea level. That unique geography makes the Maldives wide open to wind, weather and swell.

The Maldives have two seasons based on the monsoons that form over Asia: From November to April is Northwest monsoon season when hot dry air flows toward the equator and over the Maldives. The clear skies from November to April attract snowbirds from all over Europe and the world. This is prime tourist season for the Maldives but not prime surf season.

In April and May at the start of the northern hemisphere summer, Low pressure areas attract cool moist winds flowing from the Indian Ocean in the southwest across the Maldives. The southwest monsoon lasts from May to October, which is also prime surf season as southern hemisphere winter Low pressure systems off Antarctica spray long energy bands NW across the Indian Ocean.

As the Maldives straddle the equator the effects of the Monsoon Seasons are minimized. Rain and wind squalls pass through mainly June through August. Air temperatures are in the 80s and 90s while the water temperature is in the 80s year-around.

To sum it all up, the surf in the Maldives is best from late February through October, with the biggest months, June, July and August often getting rain from the wet winds of the southwest monsoon.

Activities

Activities

The Maldives are Water World, so anything fun you can think of above and below the surface of the water is first rate in this archipelago: diving, fishing, SUP, kite surfing. The comforts of Ocean Oasis make it perfect for resting and relaxing, catching up on reading and just plain snoozing for hours at a time – knowing the surf will be there when you wake up, followed by more food. Repeat as desired. Resort island visits can be arranged for use of a Spa or Dive Centre; or island visit for a little culture and sand between the toes. Photo enthusiasts are advised to bring lots of extra storage.

  • Fishing
  • SUP
