Handhu Fahli is still a relatively new vessel, having been launched in 2005 and operating for three seasons. She is the sister boat of the "Handhu" and almost identical in layout with five air-conditioned and fan-cooled twin cabins with ensuite bathrooms and upper air-condtioned saloon/lounge with TV, DVD and stereo. The outdoor shade areas provide a great place to chill between surfs and the aft deck is a great fishing platform.
Super Friendly Crew and Guides
The captain and crew of Handhu Fahli have been catering to surfers for the past three years and are a great bunch of characters who are eager to please. The expert Surf Guides will make your trip truly memorable and will do the utmost to ensure you surf needs are met and you score the best wave possible whilst minimising the possibilities of crowds.
In spite of the rising running costs in the Maldives due to the massive hike in fuel prices, Handhu Fahli trips are still extremely affordable and will operate with a minimum of five/maximum of 10 passengers. Handhu Fahli has become extremely popular with repeat guests.
Food is a mix of local and western dishes with plenty of it to refuel you after surfing up to eight hours per day.
The Male atolls host over a dozen quality breaks and Handhu Fahli charters will give you an opportunity to sample these.
Night fishing, snorkelling, barbecue on desert Islands, Island hopping, visits to resort Islands, visits to uninhabited Islands and local fishing villages.
Island culture - Our guides love to take guests to village islands to experience the traditional Maldivian way of life. Most resort tourists never get to experience this, another good reason to do a boat charter.
