Spice trading and shipbuilding histories go hand in hand in Indonesia and there is no one better equipped to guide us through this labyrinth than maritime expert and seasoned Indonesian traveller, Jeffrey Mellefont. On this trip you will visit the fabled Banda archipelago, home to nutmeg and some would argue the islands that lie at the root of modern capitalism. You will also experience unique landscapes, snorkel rich and diverse reefs, sail past and get close up to many active and dormant volcanoes, meet and experience local customs with the wonderful people who live in these remote regions, and so much more.


Our mission is to provide the best experience possible for our guests given the current conditions and when unexpected opportunities for adventure may present themselves along our cruise routes. Sometimes weather conditions, tides or other local factors dictate that we need to vary from the published route, and at times there are special opportunities to explore and discover new locations, events and activities. These explorations will always be a definite enhancement to the published itinerary and will be undertaken after discussion and agreement among guests. Ultimately, the boat captains and your tour leader will make decisions to maximize trip safety and your overall enjoyment, so please come prepared to be flexible!

The More You Know The More You See

Our tour leaders are a wealth of information on the regions we visit and will prepare you for each activity with on board talks and presentations to give you a greater understanding of the different experiences you will have each day. They will also act as your cross cultural bridges to all the people we meet along the way, so feel free to ask them to translate when talking to local Indonesian people on your travels.
