PNG Surf Boat Charters

A Unique Surf Experience

Chase the perfect wave on an uncrowded break, share the joy of surfing with a select few and live in comfort onboard the PNG Explorer.

Enjoy the true beauty of Papua New Guinea and venture into an untouched paradise. Whether you’ve booked a private trip with your mates or a solo ticket on a shared charter, you’ll be getting as much surf as you can handle.

Our experienced and professional crew will get you to isolated breaks in safety and comfort. Our surf guide will help you navigate the breaks and our professional photographer will capture the moment.

Our surf season runs from mid-October to mid-April each year. If you’re chasing ‘Maverick’ style waves; then PNG is not your recommended choice of surf destination. However, the ‘slab’ on bigger days can see 4-6 feet.

Bare in mind that when it’s REALLY BIG, you are a long way from home and surfing over coral reef. Therefore, we recommend that you always surf within your limits and improve! There is nothing more rewarding than coming home surfing better than when you left.

We cater for short and longboard riders, plus SUP, kneeboard and bodyboarders – whatever your passion, we’ve got you covered.
