Scott Dunn’s Incredible One Ocean Auction Package - A Private Island Getaway to the Maldives!

For the second year in a row, our partners and amazing supporters at Scott Dunn have donated an unbelievable luxury vacation package to Surfrider's West Coast One Ocean event. Join us at the event taking place at The Ecology Center in San Juan Capistrano, California on Saturday, October 5th for your chance to bid during the live auction on your own Private Island Getaway to the Maldives!

Surfrider's bi-coastal One Ocean events are known for their history of amazing auction packages, generously donated by a host of our partners and supporters. This year, the team at Scott Dunn have dreamed up a once-in-a-lifetime package for ocean lovers and recreation enthusiasts of all kinds, to be auctioned off at our upcoming West Coast event- proceeds from which will directly support Surfrider's mission to protect what we all love. In addition to the generous auction package, Scott Dunn is also sponsoring the event.

This year's package invites you to spend five blissed out days at Soneva Fushi in a 2-bedroom villa, the ultimate Robinson Crusoe-style getaway. Reachable by a scenic seaplane flight from Malé, the resort is set on the privately-owned tropical island of Kunfunadhoo in Baa Atoll. With a wealth of unique experiences, dining options and corners of the Island to explore, this spectacular vacation for four can be as laid back and rejuvenating or energetic and adventurous as you please.

STAY

Apart from the crystal-clear waters, white beaches and tropical climate, the island’s unusually rich vegetation offers a unique natural experience. The very spacious and stylish villas are built from wood and palm thatch, beautifully furnished with natural materials yet containing every conceivable luxury. They are all nestled on palm-fringed beaches that lead to the azure lagoon contained within a coral reef.

Your idyllic two-bedroom villa is perfect for both families and groups of friends. When not relaxing in your plush bed, enjoy a book and a cocktail on your villa’s expansive upper terrace, take a refreshing dip in your private pool, or simply spend a lazy afternoon swinging in the hammock.

PLAY

The activities at Soneva Fushi are seemingly endless, it has the Maldives’ first open-air cinema, the organic gardens house a high-tech observatory, there are two libraries offering a vast selection of easy reading, as well as glass blowing classes, a world- class spa, table tennis, badminton, tennis, beach volleyball and bicycles to explore the island.

There are just as many adventures to be had on sea as on land. Soneva Fushi is surrounded by more than 30 tempting dive sites with rich sea life. You can tailor your activities from snorkeling on the spectacular house reef, to excursions including dolphin cruises, astronomical dinner cruises, diving or fishing trips.

Scott Dunn has also arranged for an extra special surfing excursion. Discover less chartered surf breaks in the Baa and Noonu Atolls, at the world’s first 100% sustainable surfing program. Leave your gear at home because all of the eco-friendly equipment is provided.

DINE

The dining and service at Soneva Fushi is second to none. You can indulge in a sandbank picnic of ceviche, sashimi and sushi, surround yourself in the aroma of fresh herbs as you dine in their restaurant set high above organic gardens, live out your Willy Wonka fantasies in their complimentary chocolate room, or go bespoke, choosing you own menu and location to create a memorable experience.
