Boats & Access
Kandui Left and Baby Kandui are directly in front of the Kandui Villas® and there are two dozen other spots within 5-30 minutes by fast boat, in all directions. For getting to the surf, Kandui Villas® has a solid inventory of boats for accessing the inventory of waves: two, five-meter plastic dinghies, one 4.5 meter fiberglass dinghy, one 5.2 meter Kahajaya center-consul speed boat and three, 45-50 foot longboats for accessing the spots outside of Playgrounds: Hideaways, Nipussi, Burgerworld, E-Bay.
Kandui Villas® launches their fleet of surf boats from four cement docks. Three of the docks are built in a mangrove lagoon located behind each section of the resort making for easy transitions to and from the resort. The fourth dock is a jetty located on the front beach side of the resort, in a keyhole channel between Kandui Left and Baby Kandui.
The long boats are 45-50 feet long, and five to six feet wide. Because of the long boats’ sleek design, they cut through the chop better than any boats around, giving a smooth, comfortable and stable ride even through rough seas. Their construction is also very strong, using an entire tree the length of the boat for the body. One of the long boats use 2 x 100 hp 4-stroke outboards, while the other 3 long bots use three x 40 HP 2-stroke outboards, and go 20+ knots. They have canopies, comfortable padded seats, and all the safety gear, including life jackets, flares, GPS, and satellite phone contained in a Pelican case. Each boat brings a drinking water dispenser, and cooler with snacks, and drinks.
In a word: styling. In another word: safety. In a third word: speed.
