Great Value Mentawai Charter!

Wave Hunter is a high-quality surf charter offering comfortable accommodation, reliability, and excellent value for money. The boat is run by an experienced charter company with years of experience cruising in the Mentawai and surrounding areas. Primarily running trips to the Mentawai Islands, Wave Hunter can be also chartered to explore the lesser-known areas of the Banyak and Hiniko islands.

With space for up to 12 persons to be accommodated across a large air-conditioned bunk room and 3 double cabin rooms, there is tons of space to relax after a long day of surfing!

The Boat

Wave Hunter comes in at 70ft long with 50mm planking, making for a very solid vessel. It is propelled by 2 Mitsubishi 622s with 280 Hp/ Engine, giving a guaranteed hull speed up to 12 Knots, making it one of the faster cruising charters in the Mentawais. This means less time traveling and more time surfing!

The charter has a large, well decorated indoor dining area with enough space to fit all guests. New for this season is a big sofa and table on the rear deck, perfect for chilling and watching the sunset! The charter comfortably fits up to 12 guests.

The Surf

The Mentawais are like no other island chain in the world. With such a high concentration of world-class waves and incredible consistency, the area has been drawing traveling surfers since the 1980’s when the first pioneers discovered this treasure trove of perfection.

From perfect peeling points, to heavy slabbing barrels, high-performance air waves and chilled longboard spots, the Mentawai Islands has something to offer everyone! The peak months of May – September offer regular larger surf, with the months either side offering consistent perfect with lower crowds!

It is a right of passage for every surfer to experience Mentawai perfect at least once and Wave Hunter is a great option to experience this at a great price!

Why We Love Wave Hunter

The 3 double cabins make the charter a great choice for couples or groups with couples!

The team behind the charter has years of experience in the Mentawais. This means the guiding really high quality and the trips run smoothly!

For private charters, the boat can be chartered to Mentawai, Banyak Islands or Hinako Islands. Pick your preferred route!

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). :)
