Liveaboard Yacht Trips
Using traditional sail boats as our private base-camp gives us the flexibility to travel greater distances with the treat of paddling empty kayaks each day.
In 2020 we will offer trips on Jakaré, a beautiful Indonesian style ship that combines this delightful traditional design with modern western luxuries and comfort. The vessel is 30m long with two white painted masts, an elegant bowsprit and sweeping white curved sides. It was built between 2015 and 2017 by local shipbuilders who created a vessel purpose built for tropical holiday cruising.
On the top deck there is plenty of room to relax on sofas and enjoy each other’s company in the dining room or find some relaxing space on the rear deck. Alcohol is not included in the trip cost but you are welcome to purchase on board.
