This is what some recent guests had to say about their trips:
“Massive thanks to Warren and the Indies Explorer Team for providing the Indies for us to use during the Rip Curl Pro Mentwai 2012. Without this awesome boat which boasts huge deck space, helpful crew and plenty of Ice Cold beers, we could not have pulled off the best ISC Tour event in history!”

‘ This boat is God, unbelievable ah!, this boat is crazy huge, i never been on this kind of boat before, you can fit like a lot of people, fishing gear all over, great food, great crew and YEAH just make everybody happy ‘.
So, I boarded The Indies Explorer not really knowing what to expect as my very first boat trip and not being an avid surfer, me and my bestie decided to give it a crack…. Well, we had the time of our life in absolute paradise!! My awesome bro, Lee & all the indo crew did an amazing job of making us all feel welcome. We ate & drank like kings & Queens and had amazing experiences that will live on in our memories forever!! Nothing was to much for the crew who looked after our every need & always with a big smile – love you guys! I truly cant thank all you legends enough for the trip of a lifetime and i just know all the following charter crew will feel the same. YOU GUYS ROCK!! All the best for the future, see you in 2013. Yeeww!! Love Kazza!
