News / Seaplane Surfing Safari

A unique experience from the high flying Four Seasons Resort Maldives at Kuda Huraa. It all begins as you skim the cobalt blue waters on your way from the airport to the resort aboard a luxury speedboat. The sense of anticipation grows as you picture the sensational surfing that lies ahead, knowing that you are just a short boat ride away from some of the best breaks in the Indian Ocean, if not the world. But that is just the start of it, because whenever the whim takes you, why not hop onto a waiting seaplane and take off in search of breaks that few before have ever surfed.


Conventional surfing was never like this. Your customised surfing safari gets underway when you board your chartered Twin Otter seaplane in the company of a team of expert guides, ready to take flight in search of surfing nirvana. Swooping over strings of pearl-drop islands, you will hunt out the ultimate surfing destinations where you can catch perfect, empty breaks in some of the Indian Ocean's most pristine locations, taking advantage of some of the world's finest and warmest surf conditions.

Wave-ride until it is time for a fresh challenge, then paddle back to the plane for refreshments before flying on to the next slice of surf heaven. And when you are all surfed out, it is back to the beach at Kuda Huraa in time for sundowners and shared tales of an unforgettable experience.

Surfing Safari


Fast gaining a reputation as one of the Indian Ocean's top surf hangouts, Four Seasons Resort Maldives at Kuda Huraa has its own Tropicsurf operation. Inspiring surfers as young as six years old with lagoon-based courses directly off the beach, right up to surf clinics on world-class breaks, everyone is perfectly catered for.

"The remoteness of the atolls is what makes the experience at Four Seasons Kuda Huraa surfing safari so amazing. Each island has its own possibilities of perfect waves on any given day, so the seaplane is the ideal way to find your own private surfing paradise."  Matt Lindsay, Senior Surf Guide, Tropicsurf
