For a quarter of a century, the Bali-based Sea Trek company have been running small vessel cruises to remote corners of the Indonesian archipelago, offering unique experiences of regions otherwise unknown to foreign tourism. Their knowledge of local anchorages, customs and obscure beauty spots, coupled with great sailing expertise, is unrivalled, and we thoroughly recommend their trips.
One that’s proved enduringly popular with TransIndus customers is the 7-day ‘Dances, Dragons & Magical Lakes’ cruise, which calls at various idyllic sites between Lombok and Komodo – the most relaxing way to experience this astonishingly exotic part of the world, home of the world’s largest lizard, the ‘Komodo Dragon’.
Sea Trek’s two ships – the Ombak Putih and Katharina – are graceful Indonesian schooners fitted with comfortable below-deck cabins. Passengers to crew ratios are 2:1, with a maximum of 24 clients per vessel on each cruise. With two decks to lounge on and a non-stop parade of exquisite marine landscapes to enjoy, this is the ultimate way to explore Indonesia’s remote eastern archipelagos.
