Food Onboard a Surf Charter: What to Expect?

Embarking on a surf charter isn’t just about the waves; it’s also a unique social journey, usually centered around meal times. All of the Surf Charters that AWAVE Travel offers take great pride in the food served. Onboard our partner surf charters, the dining experience is designed to complement your adventure, providing nourishment that energizes you for the surf and soothes you as you unwind.

On the more luxurious charters, menus are thoughtfully curated to offer a taste of the local cuisine. Where possible, making use of the freshest ingredients sourced directly from the local seas and shores. We believe that the local flavours enhance your connection to the destinations we visit, creating a more immersive experience.

Onboard the more affordable charter, you will always be well-fed, with large portions and quality ingredients.

Regardless of your dietary needs or preferences, the chefs on board are equipped to ensure that every meal is not just fulfilling but also a moment to cherish. Just make sure to let one of AWAVE Travel’s team know when booking! As you sail from one surf spot to another, dining onboard can be an adventure in itself!

Fresh and Local: Sourcing Ingredients from the Sea and Shore

We take immense pride in partnering with quality surf charters. These serve up the freshest, most delicious meals for our surf travelers! Each surf region offers its own unique bounty, allowing the onboard chefs to bring local flavours into every dish we serve. Where possible, the freshest local ingredients are used. This practice enriches your dining experience, providing not just nourishment but a genuine connection to the sea and shore.

This approach helps maintain our partner charters’ commitment to sustainability. Utilizing fresh, local ingredients means reduced food miles, less refrigeration, and fewer preservatives. It’s all part of how we contribute to conservation while simultaneously giving you a taste of the best each region has to offer. From the crisp, salty taste of just-caught fish to the rich, earthy flavours of locally grown vegetables, dining with us is a palate-pleasing journey as much as it is a surf adventure.

Special Dietary Requests: How Our Partner Charters Accommodate Every Guest

Understanding and catering to the dietary needs of all the guests is a priority that we hold dear. We believe that everyone should have good quality meals, regardless of dietary restrictions or preferences. To ensure this, we start by gathering detailed dietary requirements from each guest before they board. Whether dealing with allergies, veganism, gluten-free preferences, or any other special dietary needs, the chefs are trained to prepare meals that are not only safe but also tantalizingly delicious.

To accomplish this, the menus are designed to be versatile, incorporating elements that can be modified while still maintaining the integrity of every dish. AWAVE Travel’s proactive communication with guests about their diets ensures everyone onboard is well served.

Meal Times Onboard: As Important as the Waves!

Dining onboard a charter is more than just consuming food; it is a central part of the overall experience, time to discuss waves, bails, barrels and more. Meals are communal times where stories of the day’s adventures weave through the conversations, and new friendships are forged over shared plates. All charters have communal dining areas and are designed to encourage interaction, set against backdrops of stunning ocean views that make each meal memorable.

Certain charters offer special meals, like beach barbecues and buffet-style dinners, where guests can help themselves to a variety of dishes, try a little bit of everything, and revel in the communal joy of dining. This setting not only enhances the social atmosphere but also enriches the cultural experience as guests from around the world share their own stories and cultures. Through these meals, the guests come together, united by the universal languages of good food and thrilling surf.

As each day ends with a satisfied palate and a heart full of ocean memories, we invite you to embrace this beautiful symphony of tastes and waves with us at AWAVE Travel. With expertly designed surf trips, culinary delights tailored to all tastes, and the endless blue as your companion, why wait to make these dream surf vacations a reality?

Embark on an adventure with us and let every meal and every wave in the Maldives surf charter carve unforgettable moments in your life. Book your reservation with AWAVE Travel today and transform your surfing dreams into cherished memories.

Very professional team. Giulia is always on and have an accurate answer to all my questions. The boat trip was incredibly well organised. Nothing was missing.

Emily Bullen 04/03/2024

Professional and Top Notch! From the moment we started planning our trip AWAVE was responsive and professional. We had a lot of back and forth picking the perfect location and resort and James and Giulia were patient and helpful. The resort we stayed at, AYADA in the Maldives, was beautiful and relaxing- great for families and couples! It was perfect for us- we have 1 surfer in the family, he was able to enjoy the waves and we also were able to enjoy the reef and snorkel as a family. Our kids loved the kids club and the private pool on the beach villas was amazing. The alcohol is expensive if you don’t do full board but that is to be expected. Wonderful vacation and amazing travel agency! Definitely recommend!!

I've used Awave twice ... so far. This is the second time I've used Awave for a trip to the maldives. Stayed in 2 different resorts this time. They've always been incredibly prompt at replying and handled everything for us, making sure the 2 Resorts were in touch to get us transfered half way through our trip. At one of the resorts I even bumped into Giulia and Delia who were out there surfing at the time. There's no doubt in my mind that I'll use awave again if I'm booking a surf trip

Indonesia Surf Trip/ Java/Bali/Sumba - James Colston was my representative from AWAVE - I’m an older solo surfer and James was attentive, respectful, extremely responsive from the initial planning stages all the way through the booking. And he was so patient with all my crazy questions along the way. I couldn’t have been more pleased with James’s level of service. Thank you James

Giulia was an amazing person to book with. I was overwhelmed with choices initially, but AWAVE knew their stuff and helped me with my options and even suggested delaying my trip so I could go to a certain hotel which ended up being the best decision I made all year.

Mickey 01/24/24

Giulia and James were always on line to answer any question or to give an advice. The Ayada resort is perfect both for families or for couples. We did not have waves as the season goes from April to September, but there are plenty options to have fun and good times. Highly recommended both Awave and Ayada.

James 01/30/24

The AWAVE team are knowledgable and helpful. Giulia is a very helpful and patient person to deal with, and do not worry, you can trust her. I had to delay my trip to Morocco due to unforeseen circumstances and Giulia was very understanding. I have just returned from having a fantastic week at Amouage in Taghazout. Thanks AWAVE!
