Ideal for Summer Season
In a country filled with staggering backdrops of incredible natural beauty, a yacht rental around the pristine waters of Indonesia is an idyllic breakaway that you will never forget. Meandering around stunning coastlines in your chosen luxury charter yacht you will enjoy the very best of Indonesia including beautiful beaches, unrivaled panoramic views and wildlife you won’t see anywhere else. Starting off at Moyo Island you will have every opportunity to relax, play and indulge as you travel from island to island in the search of some of the most beautiful sights in this area of the world.
- Day 1-3
For the beginning of your 10-day trip to Indonesia, you will spend the first three days on Moyo Island.
As part of a nature reserve, Moyo Island is in top condition due to the protective boundaries issued by the local authorities so you can be assured that any trip to Moyo Island is guaranteed to be spectacular. Begin your day investigating the dense thick forest on the island which is home to several species of wildlife including deer, wild boar and macaque monkeys.
Explore the marked-out trails to truly appreciate the splendor of the forest and discover some hidden treasures including some pretty waterfalls before heading back out into the sunshine to enjoy the almost empty stretch of beaches. The reefs around Moyo Island are bountiful with varying species of fish and other small critters, as well as many varieties of corals which add to the vibrance of the world beneath the waters.
- Day 4
Stepping on board your luxury charter yacht, you’ll have a chance to settle in and unpack before your dedicated crew raises the anchor and set sail towards the Komodo archipelago.
Your first day at sea will introduce you to Satonda, a beautiful island boasting picture-perfect landscapes and out-of-this-world scenery.
Your main highlight when visiting Satonda is the saltwater crater at the center of the island. This landmark was created by one of the most extensive volcanic eruptions in history and continues to draw in visitors every year thanks to its unique beauty and fascinating history. The mirror-like effect across the surface of the lake allows you to look through the water to the magical world underneath the surface, and it’s big enough to indulge in some water sports.
Resting up on the beach is the perfect way to end the day, with the addition of a cozy candlelit supper on board the deck of your chosen vessel.
- Day 5
Sangeang & Gili Banta
Two experiences await you on day 5 of your trip. First is the still-active Sangeang Api volcano.
With the last eruption taking place in 1998, resulting in the evacuation of everyone on the island, Sangeang has left behind an unusual but pretty landscape beneath the water’s surface. Adorning your diving gear, take the plunge into the sea to explore the black sandy ridges of the volcano.
After enjoying lunch while watching the active Sangeang volcano, your luxury charter yacht will continue to Gili Banta. One of three localized islands, Gili Banta is an image of paradise. Popular for its spectacular beaches, this is one afternoon that you will enjoy thoroughly. Relax on the sands and basque in the sun before heading into the water for the second time today.
Completely different from your dive at Sangeang, the waters around Gili Banta are flourishing with countless species of marine life and many selections of corals. Take some memorable underwater photographs before returning to the surface and having a delicious barbeque on the beach.
- Day 6
Gili Lawa Laut & Gili Lawa Darat
Another double hit of islands for you today as you visit the other two Gili islands.
These islands are home to some of the most popular dive sites in the area so, naturally, this location will is set to be a highlight of your Indonesia yacht charter. Dive sites like the Lighthouse, Crystal Rock and The Passage all feature a wide range of vibrant and exciting marine life and some admirable coral displays. Take your time exploring the dives and then retire to the long stretches of private beaches along the coast for a quiet and peaceful afternoon.
If you still have some energy to burn after your morning of diving the famous sites, there are some pretty views to see across Gili Lawa Laut and Darat if you venture across some of the elevated terrains. If this appeals to you, then make your journey towards higher ground later in the afternoon to enjoy a picnic with an unbeatable view of the picturesque sunset.
- Day 7
Located in the center of the Komodo National Park, the island of Pulau Padar is a beautiful port of call you will not want to miss out on.
Being within the protective boundaries of the national park, the dive sites around Pulau Padar are some of the best in the area. Untouched and closely looked after, the diving opportunities here guarantee that you will see mint-condition coral gardens and a vast array of marine life. Pay special attention to the nooks and crannies of the corals to see some minute critters hidden among the organisms.
Diving ideal for all levels of experienced divers is the walls around the coast. Corals and other native fauna are attached to the walls and feature even more marine inhabitants, as well as plenty of large shoals of fish who swim by throughout the day. Often depicted as one of the best dive sights in Indonesia, this wall dive is the one dive you should definitely see if you only want to dive once in this location.
After exploring the vast underwater world at Pulau Padar, spend the rest of your afternoon and evening on the pretty beaches which are covered with tiny shells. Raise a glass of something bubbly to toast the day as you watch another beautiful sunset over a barbeque on the soft sands.
- Day 8
South West Komodo
If diving is your favorite part of a luxury charter yacht vacation, then today is going to be a day you will never forget.
The waters around southwest Komodo are home to one of the most exciting dive experiences in the area. Manta Point. As the name suggests, this particular area of water is home to a large group of manta rays. Plunge yourself into the tranquil waters and you will see yourself surrounded by many inquisitive manta rays who will come up close to look at you.
After a memorable swim with the manta rays, there are still plenty of other marine specimens to see, as this area is one of the most active marine life hotspots. Swim through the waters at your leisure before returning to the land for beachcombing and private time in one of the many secluded coves along the coast.
- Day 9
Komodo and Rinca islands are both known for being the native habitat of the komodo dragons. Join up with a local ranger to see the best of the komodo dragons in their natural environment before seeing other species of wildlife in the forests including wild pigs, deer and a huge amount of native and migrating birds.
For your final afternoon on your Indonesian tour, the shell-sprinkled beaches of Rinca island offer a peaceful sanctuary for you to enjoy mother nature at her best before indulging in one final lavish meal on board your luxury charter yacht.
- Day 10
As your dedicated crew anchor down at Labuan Bajo, the time approaches for you to leave the beauty of the Indonesian waters.
Take the last opportunity to have one last trip in the active waters or spend the morning on the beach to top up your tan before making your way homeward to start preparing for your next trip away.
