Classic Small Charter Option

The Gulfaam is a great small/medium-sized charter option. With the option to charter with just 4 persons, the Gulfaam is perfect for smaller groups that want to explore the Maldives without bringing a crowd.

With space for up to 10 guests, the Gulfaam is renowned for being simple, reliable and affordable. These make it one of our most popular charters!

The Boat

The Gulfaam is a well sized charter for up to 10 persons. Operated by on of the most experienced and reliable operators in the Maldives, the Gulfaam has become a firm favourite with our travellers!

With 5 cabins that comfortably sleep up to 10 persons, the Gulfaam is perfect sized for smaller groups of friends. Up on deck is a comfortable dining area to the rear of the boat, with a saloon and chill out area to the front.

Park up and watch the waves from the sun deck or sink a cold beer up there as the sun goes down. The Gulfaam is a great option for an affordable charter for your trip!

The Surf

The Maldives is renowned worldwide for its perfect tropical surf. The Gulfaam 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.

Accommodation

The Gulfaam has a total of 5 cabins, 2 cabins with single bunk beds and 3 cabins with double bunk beds. Each cabin is well ventilated with fans assisting with the airflow. The Gulfaam is non-AC but stays cool and is very comfortable at night. All Cabins are ensuite with showers.

The communal areas are on the top deck encompassing a saloon and dining area for up to 10 people. In addition to this, there is ample sized sun deck on the roof to relax and watch the waves and sunsets from!

Food

For us, there is nothing more important on a surf charter than the fuel for the waves! The Gulfaam serves 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 fishing in the Maldives is amazing and the chefs are always happy to cook up the day’s catch for you!

Alcohol is available onboard for an extra charge, so you can enjoy a cold beer at the end of a long day in the water!

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). :)
