Excellent Value Luxury Charter

The Carpe Diem is an excellent value luxury charter that can cater to up to 20 persons. With 10 cabins, spread across 3 spacious decks, this is the perfect charter to explore the Maldives.

Coming with a dhoni (extra boat) as standard, the Carpe Diem is ideal for groups of friends and families looking to chase perfect waves!

The Boat

First launched in 2008, the Carpe Diem has been impressing clients with its luxury and comfort since first setting sail. The charter is set over 3 spacious decks with a massive sun deck for sunbathing!

Coming in at 35m in length the Carpe Diem offers a total of 10 ensuite guest cabins, ensuring there is loads of space for even the largest of groups. The dining area is well sized even with a full charter. Many of the crew have been onboard for years, making this charter feel like a ‘home away from home’.

The Surf

The Maldives is renowned worldwide for its perfect tropical surf. The Carpe Diem can be chartered to any area in the Maldives and we can arrange all possible routes. These vary greatly on the season, so we will always get you to the best area!

North Male offers the most famous waves in the Maldives and is the classic surf area. For those seeking more adventure and less crowded waves, then we would recommend the Central and Southern Atolls. These more remote regions are generally quieter with amazing waves on offer!

Speak to our Expert Surf Travel Team about the best route for your trip.

Food

For us, there is nothing more important on a surf charter than the fuel for the waves! The Carpe Team has an expert chef team onboard serving up 3 hearty meals a day with snacks in between. The dishes are a mix of Western and Maldivian. Portions are always sized for hungry surfers, so everyone will be happy!

The food on board is of a really high standard with all dietary requirements being catered for. Please advise us prior to arrival of any special requests!

James and the team at Awave do great work! Our trip was seamless the whole way through, which is really all you can ever ask for...plus the waves were great

We booked a trip to Niyama Maldives (13 - 20 May 2022) with Awave.

Before deciding to go to Niyama I had close contact with Giulia about what would be the best resort for that season. Giulia responded almost immediately and gave us good and detailled advice about the surf and of course also about the resort.

We had a great trip! The resort was just prefect as well as the service! Unfortunately the waves were a bit choppy and the wind cross/ onshore, but that's mother nature....... (and May is a very difficult month for the Maldives). We still surfed every day in fun size waves and had a great time.

Would definitely recommend Niyama as well as booking with Awave!

Great communication, fantastic care and attention from James who is very knowledgeable and approachable, and the product recommended to us as an alternative, Ayada, was a real paradise. We had very high expectations and we were really impressed with everything (apart from the the quality of the surfboards for hire). :)
