Indonesian Island Sail Itinerary 2019

#BeyondBali

4 Days – 3 Nights
US$1150.00 per person

This is the perfect vehicle for your first step “Beyond Bali.” Travel in 5 start luxury, on a traditional Phinisi Indonesian ship around the coast of West Lombok, and discover over ten different islands located just hours from Bali. A mix of deserted white beaches is the “secret” Gilis, and crowded tourist strips in the well known northern “Gili” Islands. See how much all of these islands have to offer the discerning traveller. Experience more than just Bali on your next trip! Take your first step into experiencing the wonders of Indonesia.

Day 1

Meet our representative at the office of Gili Getaway fast boats in Serangan, Bali. They will escort you while you travel by fast boat to Gili Gede, Lombok. From there you transfer to the Aliikai. After lunch, and a safety briefing, we are off for our first snorkel at Gili Gelong. The waters here are calm, and protected, and you will have a chance to acquaint yourself with your snorkel equipment. When you are confident in the water we will move to Gili Ringit and Gili Layar where you can experience the excitement of a “drift” snorkel over large coral reefs, home to a number of turtles. As the sun sets, we move closer to Lombok, and it’s all ashore to our fave local bar, where we watch the sun set behind Mt Agung in Bali.

Day 2

After breakfast, it’s off to the market! Travelling “local” style in the back of a truck, you will experience the joys (!) of the local markets. Suci (our chef) will explain the differences between the spices, and local foods. It’s hot! So on the way back to the boat we stop at beautiful Gili Asahan for a swim at a white sand beach. Cool down with a delicious juice, walk up the hill to the local yoga shala, or gently drift over a small coral garden just close to the resort. Late morning, we return to the boat and head north to the famous “Gilis.” It’s a 3 hour trip, and Suci will run a short cooking school for those interested. Else – just lie back and enjoy the sea time. Late afternoon we anchor in Mentigi Bay. You have the option of visiting a pearl farm, taking a tour of earthquake affected villages, or exploring the reef in Mentigi Bay.

Day 3

It’s a full day to explore all three Gilis – Trawangan, Meno and Air. Depending on the wind and the tides, there will be 2 or 3 snorkels before lunch at various sites. After lunch, you are free to explore on foot, bike, or horse and cart – your choice of islands. Grab a massage, a coffee, or have a shop. Late afternoon, we will do a long drift snorkel and get up close and personal with turtles who are having their evening feed on the Trawangan reef. Depending on conditions, we will anchor overnight either at Gili Meno, or back in Mentigi Bay.

Day 4

Before dawn, the boat will head south. After breakfast we will snorkel and swim at Gili Nanggu. An amazing artificial reef has been constructed, and there are thousands of fish. In the next bay is a beautiful coral reef garden. After, you have time to explore Gili Kedis and Gili Sudak. After lunch, we travel back to Gili Gede, where you will board the fast boat and travel back to Bali.

Price is all inclusive of food, soft drinks, fast boat transfer, equipment rental, welcome night cocktail, coffee/juice after the market, and local and government fees where required. Price does not include alcohol or tip for the crew at the conclusion of the trip. Itinerary, and timing of islands visited may change depending on local weather conditions. Guest safety is our number one priority. We hope that having enjoyed “beyond Bali” that you will be encouraged to explore further afield, on your next trip to Indonesia.

Included in price: On Aliikai – all meals, soft drinks, equipment, guides, local village and local government entry fees.
Not included: Wine, beer, spirits, transfers to and from the harbour – and crew gratuity.

#BeyondLombok – US $2150 8 Days / 7 Nights

This is the perfect adventure for those who want to go further afield in Indonesia, but still need the convenience of departure and arrival in Bali. This is not a trip for those who want to experience places were other “tourists” mingle. Rather it’s a exploration of the islands of West Nusa Tenggara. We seek the unexplored wonders of Lombok, Western Sumbawa and islands in between. Discover hidden waterfalls, marine lakes, incredible snorkelling, and – weather permitting – swim with the whale sharks! Suitable for all ages, this is truly a unique holiday.

#CrazyKomodo – Cost & Departure: Varies (see below)

Why Crazy? Many guests who do charter Aliikai on an annual basis, only want one way trips between Komodo and Bali. Trying to fill the return trips drives me Crazy!!!!!

Komodo, and the journey there (or back – depending on the trip) is a truly unique experience. It should be on everyone’s bucket list. Sadly, many of my enquiries expect to do a three day trip, from Bali, see the dragons, and move onto another adventure. It’s simply not possible. It’s a minimum of 4 days travel just to get to the Komodo National Park. And why rush……you miss all the fun of the journey! So, yes – we do see the dragons, but there is so much more. We swim with manta rays, visit a village where they still make traditional Phinisi boats, discover by motorbike, the Princess Dianna waterfalls, snorkel with whale sharks, swim in a marine lake filled with rare algae – every day is an amazing adventure.

If you want to experience Komodo, we currently have the following trips on offer. Check back as these will be updated through the year:

Departure Dates:

  • 15 April, 2019 – Bali to Komodo 12 days / 11 nights Cost US $2750
