The Ocean Spell Signature Group Travel Experiences
Our surf coaching and yoga open trips, exclusive signature experiences, aimed for surf travellers who prefer a group with all its entitled benefits of inclusive packages.
Our most highly demanded experiences, we have been running for over 6 years. Every year these trips sell out well in advance, with clients that have missed out requesting a Waiting List for any possible drop out spots where they can join.
Due to Covid-19 we have had to put these experiences on hold. As soon as we can confirm it is safe to travel as a group with people from all around the world, we will start running these trips again. Meanwhile, due to the high interest of our loyal surfers, we have decided to open up a Waiting List, for you to join. So we can contact you as soon as these trips open up. You will be the first to know.

We like things clear and well done.
Plus we maximise your surf experience with extraordinary accommodations that are destinations by themselves, and you will surf what others don’t, with our experienced local guides.
Surfers, propulsors for positive change
The purpose of our project, goals, vision and mission, what moves us. Us surfers are an example for society, lets use that power to contribute to the big picture.
Our team is also formed by academic researchers who contribute in well known universities towards the sustainability of tourism.
All interested guests must undertake a videocall with us
Our groups are formed with love and thought, to create a cosy familiar and welcoming atmosphere.
If after the call we inform you that the trip does not suit your needs, don’t take it personally, we will strive to find an option that fits your needs and desires. Our aim is everyone to be happy and enjoy the trip of a lifetime.
Levels we work with: from newbies who have never ever touched a board, all the way to advanced high performance surf coaching.
No matter your surf level or your surf travel experience, there is always room to expand and learn more.
Surf travel that matters
These trips are designed with all our love, passion and thought, thinking of us as the guests, as we have been on your shoes. Wanting high quality and authentic surf travel experiences, where we could feel welcomed, cosy, empowered, respected…and at the same time high quality providers, maximizing our inversion of money and time, making sure we would make the most out of the trip, plus contributing to the social and environmental local picture.
Different type of surf trips
We cater trips for either: only women groups, family friendly or coed (all genders welcome).
Each trip is different, there is no one same. Accommodations vary (boat or resort), the itinerary changes, team varies (from the coaches, to the guides, to group…you guys are also a very important ingredient).
Each trip is focused on a level or preference of wave conditions
We are not fans of mixing up levels, or preference of waves, unless we can fully cater each level with specific coaches covering the needs of our guests. More than levels, we talk about preference of waves. There are some intermediates who love to charge…and there are some advanced surfers that prefer to stick to small, cruisy waves.
Integrated surf tourism
We believe that surf travel is not only a life-changing opportunity for the traveller, but also for the local community, that is why we thrive in the idea of integrating the travellers with the local community.
Real recreational surfers
We are the buddies you can count on when you don’t know where to surf, with whom, what surfboard to take, where to invest efficiently your money for a surf trip that will be worth it, the trip of a lifetime, making sure conditions will match your surf preferences.
Kerri Heard – Cornwall, UK
“My trip to the Maldives with Silvia from The Ocean Spell was INCREDIBLE. So well organised and I felt confident throughout the process of booking that I was going to be looked after by the team. I had the best trip of my life. Met incredible like minded souls and had the best coaching I could have ever imagined. I recommend The Ocean Spell to anyone, you’ll be guaranteed the best trip of your life and with amazing people to support you and show you that you are capable and can achieve anything. Cant wait till the next trip!”
Sunshine Makarrow-California, USA
“In the two weeks I spent working with the coaching in the Maldives, my surfing improved more than it would have in months if not years on my own (I have been surfing more than 20 years). The daily video analysis was especially helpful to truly understanding how to improve. I highly recommend The Ocean Spell surf coaching trips to anyone looking to take their surfing to the next level.”
Owen Watson – Cronulla, Australia
“I have been home a few weeks now and cant stop thinking about how good this Maldives trip was. They have created the ultimate surf trip experience by incorporating surf coaching with video analysis and yoga for the mind and body. The surf coaching part of this trip is such a great concept, video analysis is the key to breaking down your surfing so the coach can give feedback on mistakes you are making and gives you the techniques needed to improve your surfing. My surfing definitely improved over the 10 days and I have lots of new skills to work on to make my surfing more enjoyable. This trip was awesome to share with my son (truly a family friendly trip) and all the other like minded people on the boat, it was such a great experience meeting all these people from around the globe becoming good friends and having a fun surf trip together! Thanks!”
Iván Fernandez – Spain
“I had a great and awesome surf trip with The Ocean Spell, all the organisation was fantastic, great surf coaching sessions, very nice boat (double room, AC, private toilet, towels), awesome surf photographer, and obviously amazing waves. Yoga sessions on the rooftop during unbelievable sunsets, unbeatable experience. Besides, the small group and the staff creating a cozy environment, good vibes. This trip was for experience surfers, and I can assure you everyone improved in the 10 days of perfect waves and video analysis. I also joined the group trip as The Ocean Spell has a strong purpose promoting environmental actions. Obviously everything can not be perfect, but was very close. I highly recommend to book your surf holidays! Great organization.”
David Becerra – USA
“If I could give them 10 stars I would!! The Ocean Spell team is formed by amazing, funny and down-to-earth people, I feel like I have made new friends for life. Definitely the best surf trip I have been on. The whole trip was super organised. After more than 20 years surfing, the video analysis was super educational, I was able to make changes to my surfing and improve in the 10 days I was there. Now I have a ton of tips I can work on to get my surfing to the next level for many years to come.We spent the entire time surfing, laughing, learning and having a blast. They are very well respected by the locals and regulars in the water, and they make sure to educate everyone on proper surf etiquette to maximise fun in the water for everyone. Highly recommend to any surf at any level who wants to surf great fun waves and meet some cool people. Will be definitely going back!”
Annie Croteau – Canada
“I have been in one of the all women surf trip in the Maldives and strongly recommend the experience if you want to improve your surf. 10 days in paradise with an amazing group of inspiring women that I am so happy to now call my friends. An excellent coach, very patient and passionate. I improved a lot in 10 days and I now know what to work on in the next year to keep improving. The yoga was also very nice after long days surfing, my back needed this! Thanks The Ocean Spell for the unforgettable experience.”
Karmen Lopez – Spain
“UNBEATABLE. I joined the only women Maldives trip, 10 out of 10! The boat with all comforts, surf coaching incredible, I have improved my level in just 10 days, what could have taken a couple of years! I have returned with amazing photos as we had a professional photographer on board! The food was varied, I am vegetarian, so I was afraid that I would be hungry, but the crew would surprise us each day with different delicious meals, lucky that we burnt all the calories while surfing! The opportunity of meeting women from all around the world, in an amazing atmosphere, it has been so much fun that the bad thing has been to return home. The Ocean Spell team took care of us, showed us the best waves in the Maldives. Every night Silvia would give us a yoga session on the top of the boat, watching the stars. Next year I will repeat! I recommend it 100%!” ❤️
Haruna Pager – Japan
“l really enjoyed my Maldives surf coaching trip, I went to the all genders trip. One of the best quality waves in the world with great people. The coach was very professional, passionate and funny.
Silvia is kind, caring and always making sure everyone is happy and things are going well.
My surfing skill definitely improved in 10 days especially with the video analysis was so helpful in understanding what needed to be improved.Also evening yoga helped my bad neck and shoulder a lot, to survive surfing 3 times a day for 10 days.
I highly recommend this trip to anyone thinking of joining. It included what you need, comfy boat, nice food, professional surf coaching, yoga, every morning surf session video and awesome photos, off the scale of my expectation!
Thank you so much, hopefully see you soon!”
Yael Zamir – Israel
“Highly recommended, amazing experience. Great hassle-free organization,professional attitude, with super fun environment. Will definitely do it again.
It was my first trip without my family (I’m a mum of three grown up kids), initially I was going with a friend to one of the only women surf coaching trips that The Ocean Spell organizes, but my friend pulled out…and honestly I was going to cancel it, as I was scared of traveling alone, joining a group of unknowns. Silvia transmitted trust and confidence and told me how everyone was in the same position as me, with doubts and fears. So good she insisted me, I have repeated again after that trip! And soon more! My recommendation, don’t think it twice, don’t look for a friend with who to travel…as you will find plenty of like-minded people at The Ocean Spell.”
