What To Expect Onboard:

Saraina was built in 2003 purposely to charter some of the best waves in the world of the Mentawai islands.

In early 2014, Saraina underwent a major refit and is now better than ever.

Saraina is 19.5 metres in length, she provides a safe and comfortable platform for a maximum of 9 passengers, to explore the magnificent Mentawai Islands.

She is made from local Indonesian hard wood, has a dark coconut interior and is powered by a 360 hp turbo diesel which propels her to a cruising speed of 8.5 kts. Saraina has 2 generators on board which provides her with 240v power and has air conditioning through out for extra comfort.

Saraina is partly owned and operated by local Mentawai legend “Dedi”. Dedi is one of the first surf guides in the region and has been showing surfers around his island paradise for the past twenty years. A true local who understands these islands and its incredible waves.

Saraina is currently the only boat that is based in the Mentawai Islands, our home port is siberut, This means we start our trip from the islands (not Padang) and have the option to cover all spots twice!
