SUNSHINE Coast Daily photographer Brett Wortman will join local surf travel business World Surfaris to create the adventure of a lifetime in the Maldives' exotic outer atolls.

World Surfaris has been sending surfers to the Maldives for more than 10 years and has created crowd-dodging itineraries in this highly sought-after destination.

The outer atolls lie to the south of the famous aquatic playground of the privileged and provide surfers with the thrill of adventure with world-class surf and are well worth a visit and a professional keepsake photo.

World Surfaris owner Shaun Levings is offering two select trips in March onboard the Surf Charter vessel Handhu Fahli with exclusive photo packages from Brett.

"Having Brett onboard the Handhu Fahli capturing every moment will be make an already amazing trip even better," he said.

"The Outer Atolls are famous for their isolated beauty and pumping surf. It's a surfer's dream location and having someone of Brett's calibre behind the lens capturing every moment will be a priceless memento."

Brett was a finalist in the Clarions in 2009 and the APN's 2010 Australian photographer of the year.

With 30 years surfing experience, he's looking forward to the trips as much as any other surfer.

The Handhu Fahli will be guided by surf expert and Sunshine Coast board-shaping legend Peter "Stumpy" Wallace who has been guiding on the Handhu Fahli for almost a decade and one was of the original surf pioneers to the Outer Atoll region.

He knows the region better than anyone and proves a real asset on the trip, allowing guests to hit uncrowded waves and picking the best spots for swell days in advance.

"The Outer Atoll region is stunning," he said.

"It's easily one of my favourite spots in the world. Surfers can expect consistent 3-4ft quality waves with fine glassy conditions in one of the most amazing surf destinations on the planet.

"Kick-off for the season is in March and the first trips will have Brett onboard, making the first two trips memorable. "

Trip dates are March 5-17 and 19-31.

Both trips are less than $4000 all inclusive (flights, food, transfers, photography package and video).
