Day 01. Sanur.

Cruising and sailing Indonesia’s vast archipelago allows us to experience native cultures and 
 
traditions, sea-gypsies and nomadic sea-life. The famous Komodo dragon, a giant lizard that has 
 
lived isolated from the outside world for thousands of years in the Komodo archipelago is one 
 
of the highlights of this tour along with beautiful beaches, including the unique red beach, 
 
exotic sceneries and eclectic destinations that only can be reached by using our traditional 
 
Phinisi schooner, KM Bidadari.
 
The Indonesia archipelago stretches along the “rings of fire”, a series of volcanic islands that 
 
includes Mt Tambora (a great eruption in 1885) in Sumbawa, Mt Rinjani in Lombok, “wishing 
 
crater” Lake Satonda island and Mt Sangeang (a volcanic sea mountain) are the highlights of 
 
this cruise.
 
 
 
We will start our tour at a restaurant in Sanur, a tourist area less-crowded than the infamous 
 
Kuta area. Here you can enjoy some fine coffee and cake before we leave. After some 
 
refreshments we will head to Amuk Bay where KM Bidadari anchors and awaits us.
 
On the way we will stop at Taman Nusa, located on the way to Amuk Bay, here we will see a 
 
miniature of Indonesia in 15 hectares of land. This display showcases the diversity of the nation 
 
Archipelago and includes a full scale traditional house from each of the 33 provinces in the 
 
Indonesian’s archipelago.
 
Tenganan Village near Padang Bay is the next destination and we will see how the early 
 
Balinese people lived their life. The village residences have kept their own culture with 
 
traditions unchanged for generations. We will have lunch on the beachside restaurant in 
 
Padang Bay and a visit to Water Castle Palace before we meet KM Bidadari in Amed Bay. 
 
Aboard KM Bidadari we will commence our voyage as we set sail to Moyo Island.

Day 02. Moyo Island.

 

 
 
Moyo Island welcomes us with its unique scenery which is very different from Bali. Sir Alfred 
 
Wallace discovered Moyo in 1800. He noticed that the flora and fauna of the islands to the west 
 
have more in common to the Asiatic species, while the islands to the east appear to be 
 
influenced more by species found in Australia.
 
We will visit a traditional island village, home to the Bajao tribe that are also known as “sea-
 
gypsies” tribe. We will walk along the narrow streets in the village and experience the their 
 
cultural life. Here we will also witness a performance of traditional music and dance. With lunch 
 
provide onboard we will cruise to Satonda island.
 
The saltwater crater lake of Satonda created by the great Mt Tambora vulcano that erupted in 
 
1815, one of the biggest eruptions in history is a sight you won’t forget. Swimming at Satonda 
 
saltwater lakes will give you the different sensations due to the higher buoyancy of the water.
 
Some people believed that by hanging a small rock in the wishing tree will make their wish 
 
come true, and when it is you will have to return visit to the tree (that will be your next cruise 
 
with us!). In the afternoon we will spend time beachcombing, beach volleyball or snorkeling in 
 
the beautiful coral garden of Satonda. In the evening we will witness thousands of flying foxes 
 
as they commute at dusk to seek for food in the main land.
 
At night we will cruise to Wera in Sumbawa.

unique to Wera and and influence of Buginese people. The village life also a unique kind of 
 
itself, the shape of houses and their daily cultures are in today agenda.
