Located off the northwest tip of New Guinea Island in Indonesia’s West Papua province, Raja Ampat is an archipelago comprising more than 1,500 islands, cays and shoals surrounding the four main islands of Misool, Salawati, Batanta and Waigeo. These incredibly remote islands are almost undisturbed by humans and are renowned for their incredible diversity of marine life, with perhaps the richest coral reef ecosystems in the world.

During a seven night cruise of this breathtaking archipelago enjoy a flexible program of activities with world class diving, snorkelling, watersports, hikes, wildlife watching and stunning views, where encounters with other visitors are few and far between.

Tiger Blue

Overview

Tiger Blue is a traditional 112 foot timber phinsi yacht which sails around the beautiful islands of Eastern Indonesia.

The boat has 12 ensuite cabins sleeping up to 12 adults, with a main deck cabin with king size bed, and on the lower deck two cabins with king size beds, a twin cabin with two single bunk beds, and a family cabin which can sleep up to four with a king size bed and two full size single beds.

The boat can be chartered privately or on an individual basis with three core itineraries throughout the year – the Raja Ampat archipelago from November to March, Komodo National Park from May to September, and the Banda Islands from September to October and March to April.

The boat is fully equipped for waterskiing, wakeboarding and diving, with a qualified dive master and up to four dives per day included. There are also two sea kayaks  on board, and a dedicated snorkelling guide. The daily activities are flexible and varied depending on the location. Perhaps go diving or snorkelling after breakfast, or head out on the tender to explore small islands or search for wildlife. Then after lunch back on board enjoy an afternoon of watersports, fish, dive, snorkel, hike or just kick back and relax on board. End the day with sunset cocktails, a bonfire on the beach, stargazing under a clear night sky, or perhaps even a night dive!

It was tiring, but we had a fantastic time and the holiday was up there with the best of them!  The boats in particular were brilliant ways to travel, and it was great that each place we visited had something different to offer.  The people were so lovely, and the food was great.  In fact, it’s one of the few places that we’ve been to over the last few years that I really feel I’d like to revisit.
