We welcome you on board of our beautiful Phinisi Schooner ‘Katharina’!
Our sailing cruise
s are primarily focusing on Eastern Indonesia, almost all our cruises start in Bali.
Highlights during our sailing adventures
are the islands of Lombok, Sumbawa, Komodo, Rinca, Flores, the Moluccas, and Irian Jaya (West-Papua) where we will visit among other places the famous Asmat tribe.
Journeys along the Lesser Sunda Islands remain among our favorite itineraries and for good reasons. Few areas in Asia can lay claim to such cultural and natural diversity: towering active volcanoes, jungle-clad mountain ranges, and dry savannah, teeming with wildlife, quiet coastal villages, emerald seas, megalithic cultures, colorful market places, tribal rituals and architecture, not to mention a world of kaleidoscopic beauty under water.
This cruise will cover a. o. the Komodo area for a couple of days of snorkeling, beach combing and hiking through one of the most beautiful National Parks of Indonesia.
The Flores Highlands will be an opportunity to hike to some remote villages and witness the tedious process of ikat weaving, practiced amid unsurpassed scenery of gigantic volcanoes, bamboo forests and intriguingly coloured crater lakes.
