Tiger Blue

Surf Remote Indonesia in Comfort and Style

Tiger Blue is a unique, truly luxury Indonesian phinisi boat. This yacht has been made specifically for chartering the archipelago and is one of the most luxurious offerings in the country. Based primarily in the diving haven of Raja Ampat, Tiger Blue can be chartered to surf the remote waves of West Papua and North Malukus.

Experience a once in a lifetime experience in true remote Indonesia, exploring and surfing some of the most remote waves in the country!

The Boat

Tiger Blue is a 112ft long traditional Indonesian phinisi boat, constructed in North Sulawesi in 2008. The charter has been fitted out to the highest standard offering incredibly comfortable and luxurious accommodation for up to 12 guests.

With a total of 5 cabins, the charter is well sized to receive families and groups of friends alike. The charter offers all guests plenty of space to relax and unwind in-between surfs full diving equipment to explore the world-famous reefs, and sumptuous cuisine!

The Surf

Tiger Blue offers the chance to surf some of the most remote surf in all of Indonesia. West Papua is one of the last regions that is still relatively untouched by mass surf tourism due to the difficulty of access and higher prices on charters running in the area.

This means that for the adventurous few that venture into the region, uncrowded and sometimes, unnamed spots await! This is a true surf adventure for those lucky enough to be able to make the trip.

The charter can also run a trip to the North Maluku islands, another region rarely surfed with outstanding natural beauty!

Why We Love Tiger Blue

One of the most luxurious charter operations in Indonesia. High-end charters in Remote Indo.

Families and groups of friends love Tiger Blue. It is the perfect boat for exploring the beauty of Eastern Indonesia.

The option to be chartered to the most remote and untouched locations. Experience surfing where very few others have!

I run surf coaching trips to perfect, uncrowded waves and I relied on the AWAVE team to deliver for my clients a month long boat trip to the Maldives. We had great waves on an absolutley 5* boat called North Seven which I REALLY recommend you enquire about.

I was dubious at first as a few boats were changed, in for repair but James assured me correctly this was a usual thing and they would endevour to find us the very best replacement (which they did). North Seven was so new we were the third guests but the crew were super experienced and could not have given us a better service. Captain Usmaan, the Chef great food, Hasan and Azim our surf boat operators could not have worked any harder and always had a smile even after the 50th request to speed us to the line up or spend four hours cruising looking or waves.

AWAVE team were always on hand to answer any fears and smooth out any worries. The payment system using Revolut was super easy.

We did have a few hiccups with the local airlines which was resolved and partly our fault (as for a month trip we took alot of surfboards and in some cases were over weight).

Take the fear out of booking and especially group bookings by using the AWAVE team. Justin West Coaching recommended.

These guys are the BEST! Massively knowledgeable, fun and absolute shredders. I approached them asking for a UK winter getaway somewhere in the Indian Ocean and they suggested the perfect place, awesome setup with the beach a short stroll from my accommodation with 3 sick waves breaking over reefs to chose from. Real life doesn’t get much better than this. I also popped my barrel cherry in a big way on this trip so it was a truely memorable one. James also somehow wangled a boat charter to some super remote islands where we scored epic surf and landed some massive fish. James’ broken Indonesian language skills will get you places. Thanks again guys you rock.

James was very helpful and always there to answer all the questions. I will definitely book again with him!

James is a super knowledgeable surfer with a great ability to match any trip requirements to the right locations. He has arranged several trips for me and my friends in France, Morocco and more recently Indonesia. Awave have a great knowledge of all the surf spots and will go the extra mile to make sure your trip is all set up. With limited time to do this myself their service was invaluable.

Giuliana has been amazing to work with!! She was always available and answered all my questions. Thank you for all your help! We can't wait for our trip!

Fantastic service from start to finish from James and his team. After having several ‘self organised’ trips to Asia end with only a handful of good surf days I decided this time to use Awave in hope of maximising my valuable holiday time. James custom built a trip for me and my friends tailored for our abilities and requirements. There were no days wasted waiting for transfers as he organised it all from the airport to the beach. We scored pretty much every day whilst also having a surf trip that had that ‘off the beaten track’ feel we wanted. To round it off there was also a secret boat trip in the end where we surfed an awesome spot just us...Unforgettable. Will be using again.

Fantastic service and support from Giulia during our trip. During a self organised trip to Maldives, we ended up in a sketchy situation: the hotel was far from the described plus the owner 'forgot' to mention that the whole island was in lockdown for a covid emergency. I quickly realized that I would need support and the best in class. That's when I decided to use Awave! Giulia answered reactively and custom built several solutions for me and my girlfriend, based on what feasible, our budget and surfing preferences!! No other words needed. Thanks Giulia, we'll be in touch again!

A wave travel were great! They helped me organize my trip to Sumatra. I would definitely book with them again!

My friends and I recently went on a trip to the Maldives. We booked a week on the Hudhuranfushi resort which was amazing! The staff was very welcoming, flawless facilities and tasty food. One day our surf guide Ryan caught a fish and made some sashimi on the spot! I think that was pretty thoughtful! Awave agency really made sure all our needs where met as we where a big group of friends. A very personal approach and clear communication. Epic surf, great service, memories of a lifetime! I highly recommend traveling with Awave!

I had just arrived in Bali when the whole of Indonesia went into lockdown again. Despite travel restrictions such as mandatory vaccination and PCR tests, flight cancellations and even the fast ferries to the Mentawis being cancelled, Giulia tried everything to get me there. It was a hell of a trip to get there but totally worth it.

I scored pristine and empty Mentawis. The resort was affordable yet very luxurious given the remoteness. And with their great surf guide and their boat, I scored amazing empty waves!
