Cruises in Indonesia
Indonesia counts more than 17.000 islands and therefore also many seas. No wonder a lot of cruises are organised in the area. In summer many schooners sail around in the area between Bali and Flores and the Komodo National Park. Around October, many schooners move to the Moluccas and Papua.Cruises in Indonesië
On a cruise you do make a very special Indonesia trip! In a wonderfully relaxed pace you sail from one place to another and make special and varied excursions!
Most cruises are made on original Buginese schooners, traditional wooden ships, equipped with luxury and safety features. You have your own air-conditioned cabin and private bathroom and toilet. Exceptions to this are the Perama cruises between Lombok and Flores. You are aboard with some 30 to 50 other people and share toilets and shower cabins. Cabins are simple and the real budget travellers can sleep on deck.
For all cruises, safety is paramount, so programs are subject to change.
Diving in Indonesia
Both novice and experienced, budget or spoiled divers are fully catered for from Pulau Weh on Sumatra to Raja Ampat or Triton bay on Papua.Diving in Indonesia
Our diving trips can focus on diving alone, but can also perfectly be combined with surprising round trips in Indonesia.
Also for groups (individually or in groups) we can perfectly tailor an Indonesia trip for both divers and non-divers.
Diving pearls are the waters around Komodo, Alor, the Wakatobi islands in south Sulawesi, Bunaken, Gangga and Lembeh in north Sulawesi and of course Raja Ampat. But the islands in East Kalimantan are also full of interesting dives!
Macro dives are fantastic in the Moluccas and in the winter months the Banda archipelago is terrific!
Merapi offers both Indonesia diving trips in dive resorts and on liveaboards. We offer most diving trips as tour modules. Of course we can also book your flights and all transfers. For the same price as direct booking you get our service from Schiphol to Schiphol and your entire trip is fully covered by SGR, ANVR and Calamiteitenfonds.
