Bali is the latest ‘must see’ phenomenon – everybody seems to be going there, but how many truly get to fully enjoy it’s many varied and diverse delights? This is an island archipelago – to see it properly you need to explore by sea.

Come with us and you can get an island-hopping road trip by sea adventure, and exotic cruising at its best. Enjoy spectacular snorkelling, fun beach BBQ’s and fascinating optional excursions exploring the diverse nature and fascinating culture of these beautiful islands. We sail from the harbour of Benoa on Bali’s south coast and visit Keramat island noted for its coral reefs, Satonda island with its volcanic salt lake, Rinca island and the Komodo National Park, home to the world’s largest reptile, the Komodo Dragon, Komodo and Moyo islands and the famous Pink Beach. The best we save until last, spectacular Lombok with its live volcano and historic Hindu temple of Pura Meru.

Sail & Stay Option

Trust us – having flown all this way, and cruised the islands, you really will want to stop over and see Bali itself. We recommend extending your stay with a week at a fine beach hotel such as the Bali Mandira Beach resort & spa directly on famous Legian Beach. We can make all the arrangements.
