In the wheelhouse we have our Indonesian Captain Herman, with over 20 years behind the wheel of surf charter boats and cargo boats in the waters off Sumatra. Right by Herman's side for each charter will be at least one of our boats owners, Wazza, Hanly & Dan Tuck who work closely with the captain to get the guests to the best possible waves and conditions.


One of the best features of the Indies Explorer is the size and stability – a 115ft ironwood ketch built exclusively for long range surf charters. Comfortably holds up to 14 surfers with 8 air-conditioned private cabins. The spacious front deck is well covered with lots of seating including hammocks and bean-bags perfect for watching the surf or a sunset beer. There's also an awesome sound system fitted with an iPod dock, so you can plug in your own tunes to get psyched for your next session.


The Indies Explorer is one of the largest charter boats operating in the Telos and Mentawai regions, and was used as a support boat for the Rip Curl Mentawai Pro.
