The Manta Mae captures the spirit of Indonesia and offers a unique opportunity to experience its beauty
For centuries, native people have sailed from South Sulawesi across the shallow seas of the Indonesian Archipelago. The great age of sail, which ended in the West in the early twentieth century, never quite ended in Indonesia.
Explore the most spectacular inaccessible archipelagos on the planet, a realm of uninhabited islands and deserted beaches, remote tribal villages and historic spice-trade sites, pristine coral reefs and dazzling marine life. Divers & Snorkelers can enjoy the best that Indonesia has to offer. Mola Mola & Manta Ray encounters in Komodo, pristine dive sites in Raja Ampat, there’s something for everyone. On top of that there are fantastic land-based activities, such as hiking in Rinca to see the world famous flesh eating Komodo Dragons, kayaking through Mangroves or enjoying beach BBQ’s at sunset on remote Indonesian Islands.
