Luxury boat cruises in the Indonesian islands
Indonesia is an increasingly popular holiday destination. Bali (the ‘Island of the Gods’) has won global travel awards and is a perfect starting point to explore the wonderful sailing areas nearby. Indonesia`s cultural diversity is as varied as its natural diversity. This is arguably the perfect holiday destination for discerning travellers of all ages
Divers and snorkelers, bird watchers, sport or game fishers, adventurers, explorers and leisure seekers all come to experience its magic.
Cruising itineraries in this area normally vary with the time of year: The suggestions that follow both include wonderful scenery, beautiful islands and the opportunity to see a rich variety of wild life. No matter your start point you will be greeted by the crew when you land at Sorong or Labuan Bajo airport or Ambon airport and escorted to your luxury yacht.

Between Bali and the Lesser Sunda you`ll find idyllic bays and pristine beaches.
