IMAGINE YOUR DREAM AND MAKE IT LIVE......
Indonesia with 17,000 islands stretching 4.000 miles across the equator where
the PAcific and Indian Oceans meet. This is Indonesia - the world's largest
archipelago and home to some of the most engaging and vital cultures of the
world. Indonesia is also a land of abundant natural beauty and a center of some
of the greatest concentrations of biological diversity in the world. As
such, it is an ideal and stil largely undiscovered destination for adventurous
and discerning travelers seeking world-class experiences in indigenous arts and
culture, natural beauty, and wildlife and marine exploration.
For hundreds of years the famous Buginese Pinisi sailing ships have
carried spices, cloths and other treasures between the exotic islands of
Bali, Banda, and Borneo, and throughout the rest of Southeast Asia - even
as fas as India and Madagaskar. Our new Phinisi Schooner, the
Triple-X cruise, now makes possible comparable voyages of
Recently hand-crafted of rough teak timbers by native craftsmen and
traditionally rigged, the Triple-X Cruises combines 20th century comfort
with timeless grace. The boat is manned by a crew whose home is the sea and
staffed with an outstanding on-board Indonesian cruise director. Six
air-conditioned double cabins and a salon/diving room in place of the
traditional cargo hold provide a relaxed and intimate setting for small
group charter travel. Cruising Indonesia aboard the Triple-X cruise opens
a window onto a way of life that has all but disappeared from the modern world.
The Triple-X cruises provide opportunities to learn and grow through
meaningful interaction with many places and people we encounter. Our tours are
guided by principles of responsible eco-tourism. We have continuing ties with
the island communities we visit. And we respect and seek to preserve Indonesia's
natural and cultural heritages.
Individual tours and incentive travel packages can be flexibly tailored
to your specific interests such as snorkeling/diving, ikat/batik,
wildlife/biodiversity, and bicycling. Itineraries can also be developed around
specific themes or arranged to provide focused creativity such as through
writing and photography workshops. Also great for pure relaxation, family,
reunions, and romantic rendezvous.
