Eighty percent of the earth is covered by water, so to truly see the world, it must be done by sea. Travelling by ship and seeing a new destination by water gives one an appreciation for the vastness of the globe.  Fast-paced, modern air travel strips us of the tranquillity of sailing on the open sea.

Discover the beauty of the Far East from its scenic waterways and gain a new perspective on this fascinating region. Rivers are the arteries that bring culture and wildlife to Southeast Asia. Meandering river cruises take you off the beaten path of developed tourist areas to experience the untouched culture and fascinating wildlife that is the real essence of authentic travel.

Indonesia is an archipelago comprised of over 18,000 islands, most of which are uninhabited.  Private yacht charters allow you to discover new private paradises at your leisure on a fully-crewed traditional  phinisi ship.  Choose your own adventure and experience the heights of luxury.

It is just as much about the journey as the destination.
