Star Clippers to sail Indonesian waters for the first time
Star Clippers will be sailing in Indonesian waters for the first time in 2017. The company, which operates three clippers, is offering a choice of 19 departures on four-mased Sta Clipper between May 6 and October 14 2017, and sailings of 7, 10, 11 and 14 nights, from Bali and Singapore, including Bali round trips and itineraries from Bali to Singapore and reverse.

Highlights of the six new itineraries include the opportunity to view Komodo Dragons and see `Pinisi’ traditional Indonesian sailing ships being hand crafted in the village of Wera, or visit the island of Pulau Satonda, off the northern coast of Sumbawa, a natural volcanic island, and Marine National Park.

Other highlights include an optional excursion to Mount Bromo and Borobudur Temple built in the 8th and 9th centuries.

Talking about sailing in Indonesian waters, Star Clippers founder and owner, Mikael Krafft, said 'guests will enjoy the most memorable sailings in some of the most beautiful waters in the world, while daytime activities will be eclectic, exotic and each day will bring opportunities for new adventures.'
