All Aboard!

Salty Sensations - Maldives

We are taking the Salty Sensations Getaways from California all the way to the Indian Ocean for two very special boat trip editions (women only & coed editions). Join Kassia, Leah Dawson and our friends at The Ocean Spell for the trip of a lifetime! The Ocean Spell is the leading surf guided tours in the Maldives working with local community members.

Spend 11 days sailing across different atolls in the Maldives, searching for remote waves, whilst boosting our surf technique and style with Kassia and Leah. Get expert advice with daily video analysis and guided surfing.

Leah and Kassia will also be supported with two local surf guides so everyone has plenty of personal attention.  

Only 8-10 surfer guests per trip, you know we like to keep vibes familiar and cozy, so we can all catch plenty of waves! 

All boards are welcome! The only requirement is to surf along the line of the wave and to be able to catch your own waves. 

There will be plenty of surfing, time to snorkel and explore the mesmerizing Maldivian underwater world, chilling, yoga and sound healing sessions. Get to know the local culture and gastronomy, explore sandbanks and uninhabited islands, enjoy local jamming sessions, chances to collaborate with a local NGO and much more!
