Voyages through the Indonesian Archipelago

Komodo Dragons & Krakatoa: the Isles of the East Indies

Cruise beyond the famous Komodo dragons and volcanic Krakatoa through Indonesian islands in true expedition style aboard our new flagship Coral Adventurer.

Our expeditions between Darwin and Singapore retrace the 17th-century spice route pioneered by merchants who traded silks, cloves and nutmeg.  On our new expedition ship Coral Adventurer, cruise from island to island, witnessing the confluence of history, culture and wildlife unique to Indonesia.  Visit coastal villages where ironwood ships are built on the beach and textiles are woven on ancient looms, as they have been for generations.

See the endangered orangutans at Tanjung Puting National Park and the famed Komodo dragon on Rinca Island.  Amidst the volcanic backdrop of Krakatoa, we will pause to pay tribute to Australia’s WWII history at the wreck of HMAS Perth, tragically torpedoed in the Battle of Sunda Strait. In between historic sights and cultural adventures, there will be time to relax on white-sand beaches on little-visited islands and snorkel over vibrant coral gardens.
