Incredible Indonesia

Explore a land of dragons and magical islands, a land of natural beauty and untouched tribes on a private sailing on an traditional pinisi boat

When the first Dutch ship arrived at Bali in the 16th century its entire crew deserted believing they have reached paradise. Today’s visitors are almost equally enchanted. Join a private Jules Verne sailing and experience mystique wonders on a journey of discovery cruising the tropical islands between Bali and the Komodo Island. Known as the Land of the Gods, Bali has a sheer natural beauty of looming volcanoes and lush terraced rice fields. Komodo Island is home to the national park, founded in 1980, to preserve the unique Komodo Dragon in their natural habitat.

Explore the incredible islands in between, highlighting the cultures, wildlife and natural beauty of this most diverse part of Indonesia. Watch the colourful caci whip dance of the Manggarai. Visit the Bajau Sea Gypsies in their over-water settlement. Take time to swim in a jungle waterfall, make a wish on a magic tree beside a volcanic lake, swim in the gin-clear waters off deserted tropical islands and snorkel on kaleidoscopic coral reefs. Marvel at the beautiful sunsets and experience a close encounter with the Komodo Dragons.
