Star Clippers: Bali Sailings in 2017
| July 25, 2016

Tall ship sailing specialist Star Clippers will be sailing in Indonesian waters for the first time in 2017, offering a choice of 19 departures between May 6th and October 14th 2017 with sailings of 7, 10, 11 and 14 nights, from Bali and Singapore, including Bali round trips and itineraries from Bali to Singapore and reverse on the Star Clipper. These Indonesian itineraries include complimentary water sports, including snorkeling, kayaking and canoeing off many of the beaches and islands in this exotic part of the world.

The four-masted Star Clipper will voyage under thousands of feet of billowing sails sailing between lush, culturally unique, and exotic port calls and drop anchor close to coconut-white coves that typify Indonesia’s thousands of islands, mirroring a Robinson Crusoe adventure, as the ship calls into tiny jungle-and-sand islands, haloed by crystal clear turquoise sea and white sand beaches.

Indonesia’s towns and villages provide the opportunity for guests to experience the exoticism of Hindi culture, eccentric looking gods, with incense wafting through the balmy air, and colorful sights and scenes with bustling streets and markets.

Highlights of the six new itineraries in Indonesian waters include the opportunity to view Komodo Dragons, the world’s largest living species of lizard that live on Indonesia’s islands, growing to a maximum length of 10ft.

The compact size of the Star Clippers’ vessels enables the ships to sail waters uncharted by most commercial cruise lines. One such example will be the Star Clippers stop in Satonda. Satonda is a natural volcanic island, also a Marine National Park, with towering mountains that shelter a beautiful salt-water lake in the crater, and surrounded by a wealth of coral reefs.
