One of the best experiences of our life. Disconnecting from everything, sailing in absolute paradise, enjoying nature in every possible aspect underwater and on the surface. We couldn't have a better captain, cook and supervisor. 5* Experience that I would recommend to everyone.

Honeymoon itinerary advice (1 Replies)
Hello! I am getting married in the summer and am planning a 3ish week honeymoon to Indonesia in July. We have come up with a rough plan for an itinerary and I was looking for some advice about whether we've missed out anything major, and whether it is doable. We mostly want to relax but want to fit in some activities and outings. Partying is not really too of our priority list! I have heard and read that south Bali is quite touristy and busy so have avoided it, but please let me know if you...More

I don't see any big holes in your overall itinerary. It seems you have already done a lot of research and know what you like so looks like you did a thorough job. I do want to mention that Munduk can be very cold in July so maybe exchange Munduk for another few nights in Ubud. (You can easily do day trips to Munduk from Ubud) Sidemen could also give you that hillside agricultural feel but in a lower elevation and much easier to get around. Since you are spending most of your time in Lombok...More

Thailand Boat Tours/ Liveaboards - Not diving focused (1 Replies)
Can anyone recommend/ know of any boat trips/ liveaboards that aren't diving focused? I wanted to do the 'Le Pirate Explorer' in Indonesia but we aren't going to be able to do so I wondered if there is something similar to Island hop in Thailand? Thank you!

There are yacht charters available out of Phuket area, either bareboat or skippered, that could take you through the islands

During our traveling in Indonesia, we want to see Flores. Due to both budget, and time constraints, we will need to see Flores on a shoe string, we were thinking of spending 5 nights on the Island. However we are considering instead doing the 'Le Pirate Explorer' which is 4 days, 3 nights and sees the following: Day 1 Labuanbajo - Sebayur island - Gili lawadarat island Day 2 Batu bolong - Manta point - Taka Makassar Island - Rinca Island (to go see komodo dragons) Day 3 Padar...More
