Silolona and Si Datu Bua, Indonesia

Silolona and Si Datu Bua, Indonesia Silolona and Si Datu Bua, Indonesia

Two graceful boats. Both following the swooping lines of the traditional, wooden phinisi that have sailed these waters for centuries. Both luxuriously equipped. Both bound for exotic island destinations along the old spice route. Decisions, decisions.

Whether you choose to sail aboard the Silolona or the Si Datu Bua, you will be embarking on an adventure that will take you to some of the world’s most impressive marine environments – teeming with underwater life – and some truly unforgettable islands. Places like Banda with its vast coral gardens and huge forts, or Komodo with its monster lizards – the world famous dragons - and the ‘Four Kings’ Raja Ampat; one of the planet’s most prized dive destinations with over 500 different corals (70% of all known species), inhabited by more than 1,320 recorded species of reef fish.

Along the way you will picnic on the walls of ancient ruins. You will dive into a world of kaleidoscopic fish and incomprehensibly ornate coral. And you will be able to recount your experiences, back on board, over a chef-prepared dinner beneath the stars, or indulge in a spa and massage session. So choose to cruise aboard Silolona. Or, of course, Si Datu Bua.
