Bintang

Bintang is an ocean going 110ft Schooner and it is the largest Western vessel in the Mentawai Islands which has been set up exclusively for surf charters. Bintang is owned and operated by Daryl Robinson and his two sons, Ashton and Carrick, all keen surfers and knowing where to find the best waves on a daily basis is their forte. Bintang comfortably sleeps 10 guests in air-conditioned comfort.

The 25 x 20ft saloon has a state of the art entertainment centre which includes TV, VCR, with digital and video play backs of days surfing. We also have a DVD / CD stereo surround sound system. On deck is spacious with a seating area for 12. You will find it perfect for those breezy tropical nights sampling the local cuisine and freshly caught seafood after a hard days surfing.

You'll be met at the airport by a member of the Bintang crew, with transportation provided either to a local hotel, (2 - 4 star), for you to unwind overnight, or alternatively, directly to the boat at Bungus Harbour which is 40 minutes from Padang. The boat normally departs the harbour between 1pm and 3pm and will have you surfing early the next morning.

Once on-board the Captain of the ship, Daryl or Ashton Robinson is responsible for all decision making.
