A BOAT TRIP WILL BE ONE OF THE BEST HOLIDAYS YOU EVER HAD SURFER OR NOT!
Fly into Kavieng, in the north eastern archipelago of New Ireland Province, Papua New Guinea, and transfer straight onto the air-conditioned comfort of the Surf Charter 'PNG Explorer'. This live-aboard boat is a 23m steel-hulled vessel, kitted out with all mod cons and safety gear. Cruising along at a comfortable nine knots, the PNG Explorer and her crew will ensure you have the surf charter experience of a lifetime. Leaving Kavieng behind, your destination will be much further afield to the many islands and reefs still being explored for surf. There are many known breaks that you will visit but there are many more just waiting to be discovered.
Built to survey, the super seaworthy PNG Explorer provides air-conditioned comfort, a 'must have' in the tropical climate of Papua New Guinea. The large shaded deck space allows ample room for outdoor relaxing, dining and board storage. Not forgetting the amazing cuisine, ranging from locally caught shellfish and fish to locally reared beef, accompanied by a selection of Aussie beers and wines and the local favourite – SP!
Enjoy the flexibility of being on a boat and the knowledge that your experienced skipper / surf guide Andrew Rigby, will always take you to the best possible locations. Surf waves discovered only in the past few years, with no crowds and only your mates to see you get barrelled.
The PNG Explorer has six spacious cabins set up as four twin berths and two single doubles, all maintained at a perfect temperature with a well thought out ventilation and air conditioning system. Enjoy a hot shower in one of two separate shower rooms. Spread out in the ‘house’ sized lounge hosting a large flat screen with DVD player and cranking sound system. Alternatively relax and read from a library of popular books and magazines.
The huge upper deck on the Explorer is a great spot for lounging on one of the many day beds. It’s also the main dining area onboard, which is a perfect location for relaxing. Grab a drink from the well stocked icy cold beer fridge to help you chill near the BBQ. The lower “surf” deck is perfectly designed and set up for a tropical surfer, consisting of a board preparation table and padded alloy board racks for thirty surfboards. The large duckboard at water level is accompanied with aluminium dive ladder which boasts an underwater platform so you can easily access the mighty explorer even from the water.
To ensure fast and safe transfers to the breaks the PNG Explorer runs two tenders. A 24 foot tender and a 23 foot banana boat. Both tenders have all the necessary safety equipment, alloy board racks and dive ladders for easy water to tender access.
