Itinerary

Map

It is alongside a professional and local crew that you will sail for 8 days among some of the most beautiful islands of the archipelago. You will have many opportunities to explore the seabed inhabited by brightly coloured corals and fish. On board, the cook will offer you an international cuisine, composed of Indonesian, Western and Asian dishes. A change of scenery guaranteed!

DAY 1: Bali - Amed
You will arrive in the south of Bali at the Puri Santrian Hotel at 9:00 am (about 25 min drive from Denpasar Airport). Upon arrival, you will meet your fellow travellers and board a minibus to travel to Amed. During the trip, your guide will tell you more about the Karangasem region. You will make a first stop in the village of Tenganan, and meet the Bali Aga, the original descendants of Bali. You will discover a unique architecture as well as ancestral culture and ceremonies. You will end your tour by exploring rice terraces. The driver will then drive you to your hotel, where you can enjoy the sea, the swimming pool and the surrounding hills on a leisurely stroll. You will also have the opportunity to participate in an introductory snorkeling course. For your welcome dinner, you can enjoy delicious Balinese specialities. Overnight at the hotel.

DAY 2: Bali
Those who wish to do so can bathe after breakfast. A transfer awaits you afterwards to take you to the boat. You will be warmly welcomed by the captain and his crew, who will accompany you to your cabin. Before heading out to sea, you will take a tour of the boat and snorkel to explore the beautiful reefs. Back on the boat, the crew weighs anchor and sets sail for Sumbawa. During the crossing, you'll pass through the Lombok Strait before sailing along the north coast of this volcanic island. At the end of the day, you'll settle comfortably on the aft deck to watch the sunset. Dinner and overnight at sea.

DAY 3 : Kenawa - Bungin - Moyo
You wake up in front of the beautiful Kenawa Island and enjoy your breakfast in front of this dream setting. You will have the morning to relax on its white sand or to snorkel among its corals and multicoloured fish. The paddle will also be an excellent way to discover the shores of the island. After lunch, the schooner takes to the sea and heads east of Lombok. You will stop on Bungin Island and meet the second largest Bajau community in Indonesia. This group of "sea gypsies" live exclusively from the sea and live on the water, in houses on stilts. Back on board, the captain sets sail and heads for Moyo Island. Dinner and overnight on board.

DAY 4: Moyo - Satonda
This morning, the boat approaches Moyo Island and docks near the village of Labuan Aji. Once ashore, you visit the village and then walk to the Diwu Mba'i waterfall. The more adventurous can think they are Tarzan by swinging at the end of a rope before jumping into the cool, translucent water. You set sail again with all your sails hoisted to the small volcanic island of Satonda. In 1815, Mount Tambora, located on the island of Subawa, erupted causing a huge tsunami that submerged the crater of Satonda. According to the local population, this island is magical. The inhabitants have the custom of tying a small stone to a tree (called "wish tree") and making a wish. If the wish comes true, they come back to make an offering as a token of thanks. During your walk, you too can participate in this tradition. A little later in the afternoon, you will swim by the tropical fish. After admiring the sunset, you will sail east. Dinner and overnight at sea.

DAY 5: Sangean - Banta
Enjoy your breakfast and the impressive view of the volcano of Sangean Island. This 1800 meter high volcano is still active. As a result, local farmers and cattle breeders live there only for short periods of time. You will have the chance to talk with boat builders who will explain the process of schooner making. If you go to the north of the island, you will be able to swim in an area where volcanic gases escape from the bottom of the sea and bubble to the surface. You then return on the boat to the island of Banta. This stopover will be the perfect opportunity to relax on the white sand. Later in the evening, the captain weighs anchor and sets sail for an island populated by dragons... Dinner and night at sea.

DAY 6 : Komodo National Park
As you go on deck, you will find that the schooner is anchored in the middle of the 80 islands that make up the Komodo National Park. Your day will be devoted to underwater discovery. The captain will take you to a small bay where the fishes live in a natural environment still preserved. You can choose to paddle above the water or put on flippers, mask and snorkel to explore the seabed. You will then sail to the Makassar Reef in search of manta rays. If they are showing the tips of their huge fins, you may be able to swim with them ... Dinner and overnight on board.

DAY 7 : Rinca - Siaba
You disembark at Rinca Island and hike in search of the Komodo dragons accompanied by Loh Buaya rangers. You will quickly be surprised by the diversity of the fauna (wild buffaloes, deer, monkeys...) and the landscape once you reach the top of the hills. On your return, you leave with all sails hoisted to reach the island of Siaba. Here again, the seabed is beautiful. Depending on the time of day, you will visit the island of Kelor, then the island of Karangan. The latter is home to the Bajau people. At the end of the day, you will land on a small deserted island and enjoy some barbecued specialities (according to metrological conditions). Around this bonfire, crew members will sing and dance while others will play the guitar. Night on board.

DAY 8: Labuan Bajo
The early risers will enjoy a last swim before the crew weighs anchor (around 9am). You will stop in the village of Melo and attend the Caci, a ritual in which two rivals confront each other with a rattan shield and a whip while dancing to the rhythm of traditional music. This duel requires a good physical condition and great concentration to perform the movements quickly. The villagers will also present a traditional dance show. Your disembarkation is scheduled after lunch. You will be transferred to Bandara Komodo airport.

FAQ

For French nationals and for a stay of less than 30 days, you just need to have a passport valid for 6 months after the return date (in perfect condition) and your return flight tickets.
For a stay of more than 30 days you will need to apply for a visa.
This information is subject to change by the authorities of the country visited. It is not uncommon for border crossing rules to change. We therefore strongly advise you to refer to the "travel advice" section of the France Diplomatie website: https://www.diplomatie.gouv.fr/fr/conseils-aux-voyageurs/.
Nationals of other countries should enquire about formalities at the consulate of their home country.
Your plane tickets are not included in your package. However, they can be booked by the GlobeSailor team. You just have to specify it to your adviser when booking your cruise.
During your cruise, you benefit from the full board formula including: breakfasts, lunches, dinners and non-alcoholic drinks. The chef offers you Indonesian, Western and Asian dishes made from fresh and local products.

Alcoholic beverages are available at an additional cost. They are served at the bar or during meals (approximately $2 for a can of beer and $20 for a bottle of locally made wine). Since taxes on alcohol are very high in Indonesia, the price of imported wine is higher (starting at $30 a bottle).
If you wish you can bring your own bottles. Nevertheless, be careful to respect the legislation when going through customs at the airport.

Check the terms and conditions of your quote. Your consultant will be able to send you the menus proposed on board on request. They are often prepared using fresh, local produce. Please inform us as soon as possible if you are allergic to certain foods or if you are on a special diet.
It is important to note that during this cruise you will be walking a lot. Therefore, we advise you to bring comfortable clothing suitable for walking and hiking.

  • Clothing:
  • In Indonesia, the climate is tropical, so you should wear cotton T-shirts and shorts. The cruise takes place during the dry season, however, a rain shower is not to be excluded, remember to bring a light raincoat.
    Of course, don't forget your swimsuit. It is preferable to bring several (2 or 3) to give them time to dry.
    In order to respect local cultures and customs, we will ask you to be able to cover your shoulders and knees during the village visits.
    You can also bring an elegant and casual outfit for cocktails and dinners on the boat.
    Ladies, the boat provides a beautiful setting for a photo shoot. So you can bring one or two light dresses and a pareo for your bathing outings.

  • Shoes
  • For walks and hikes we advise you to bring comfortable sneakers or walking shoes as well as socks to avoid blisters.
    Many travellers bring their walking sticks for more stability. There are telescopic walking sticks that are now easy to carry.
    For those who wish to bring neoprene shoes and flip-flops for the beach, they can also do so.
    Note: it is customary to walk barefoot on the boat.

  • Sun protection :
  • During your trip, you will spend a lot of time in the sun. It is therefore strongly recommended to buy a sun cream with a high enough protection factor to protect your skin and to wear light clothing (T-shirts, shorts...) and a hat or cap to avoid sunstroke.
    You will be dazzled by the sun very quickly, so remember to take your sunglasses and a cord to hang them up.
    Also remember to bring an after-sun lotion or cream in case of sunburn and to moisturize your skin at the end of the day.

  • Bag:
  • A backpack will be essential during your hikes to carry: a bottle of water, a camera, binoculars, a raincoat...
    The ideal would be to have a small waterproof bag for the objects which fear water and humidity.
    A reusable metal bottle will be given to you at the beginning of the cruise.

  • Camera :
  • You will discover beautiful islands and villages. A camera will be ideal to immortalize these moments. You can also bring a waterproof camera to film your underwater explorations.
    Remember to bring an extra memory card, as it will be extremely complicated to get one during the cruise.
