The Melaleuca can reach a cruising speed of up to 12 knot. All necessary safety equipment is on board. Our 20 foot tender will take you to the waves or wherever you want to go.

The Melaleuca’s exterior is more spacious than any other local boat. The upper deck is huge with a booming stereo that you can hear in the lineup if you like. Half the upper deck is open and half is covered. You get real shade with our hard top. Spread out with 360 degrees of unobstructed views of the waves.

Melaleuca Surf Charter Boat Mentawai Islands Meals


Gee, April 2019:
“This was my third trip to Mentawaii and was definitely the best to date. We had amazing waves and our guide made sure all the party had waves for their ability and generally un-crowded. The crew were fantastic and the boat was great. Nothing seemed like too much trouble and they were always smiling. Lastly, I would like to thank you. Throughout the whole process, LTL Surf Charters has always responded to my emails with answers promptly and made me feel comfortable I was booking with a reputable company. If I could offer one piece of feedback it would be for some more comfortable seating on deck but this did not affect our enjoyment it’s just something that would only enhance what is a great boat. I don’t believe the crew and guide could have been any better.Thanks again.”
