Surfing and Wakeboarding

There is no doubt that when it comes to water sports in Indonesia, the surfing on offer is considered world-class. From the famous surf breaks of Bali which are ideal for beginners and professionals alike to the more remote reef breaks around Rote Island.

Some of the most talked about surf spots are located in the Indonesian Archipelago: Bali, Rote, Kuta in South Lombok, and Sumba to name just a few. The surfing is as diverse as the nation itself and el Aleph’s crew can guide you to the best spots for your ability.


El Aleph has waterskiing equipment on board which is always available for guests who want to enjoy skimming over the mirror-like surface of the ocean. Our zodiac tenders are perfect for providing thrilling waterskiing in your chosen destination.

Scuba Diving and Snorkeling

Two of the most famous water sports in Indonesia are all about what’s under the water, not on it! Indonesia’s phenomenal underwater realm is just waiting to be explored. Take a look at our Scuba Diving and Snorkeling pages for more detailed information.
