High-Quality Luxury Surf Charter

The Carpe Vita is the larger sister ship to the Carpe Diem. This beautiful luxury charter comes in at 38 m in length with a capacity for up to 20 persons. This high-quality and well-run charter offers surf and diving trips throughout the Maldivian Atolls.

Having been in operation since 2011, the Carpe Vita is the perfect charter for larger groups looking for quality accommodation, reliable service, and of course, great surf! As standard, the charter comes with a dhoni (smaller boat) and dhingy to reach the waves.

The Boat

First launched in 2011, the Carpe Vita 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 38m in length the Carpe Vita 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 on board for years, making this charter feel like a ‘home away from home’.

There is even a hot tub on the top deck for you to soothe your muscles after a long day surfing perfect waves!

The Surf

The Maldives is renowned worldwide for its perfect tropical surf. The Carpe Vita 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!

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.

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.

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.

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!
