Description

What you can expect

Newly built in 2014 and refurbished annually, the 30-meter Calico Jack offers every modern convenience to its guests. The yacht was built as a classic Phinisi schooner, adding a local touch to your journey and ensuring the liveaboard can expertly handle the sometimes rough Indonesian waters.

Considering there is a maximum of 10 guests on board there is plenty of room on this classic Phinisi schooner as it cruises Komodo, Raja Ampat and beyond. The yacht has everything you will need and more.

They might also enjoy the TV and DVD-player found along with comfortable seating in the lounge. A computer and sound system is also provided. Sun-seekers can top up their tan on the spacious sun deck. And during the day, you’ll also be treated to free reign of fishing equipment, kayaks, SUB boards and wake boards.

In addition to these great amenities, two to three excursions are usually offered during each itinerary. While sailing Raja Ampat, you might have the chance to climb Wayang or search for a Bird of Paradise. The Komodo itinerary includes stops at Komodo National Park and remote islands for snorkeling, chatting with the locals or hiking in dense rain forests.
