About Handhu Fahli
Male Atolls 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. Group discounts apply for groups of 10.
Handhu Fahli was launched in 2005. She is the sister boat of 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.
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.
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.
