Tall ship sailing specialist Star Clippers have announced that they will be sailing in Indonesian waters for the first time in 2017. The company will be offering 19 departures between May 6th and October 14th aboard the Star Clipper

The sailings on offer will vary in length with voyages of 7, 10, 11 and 14 nights available, from Bali and Singapore, including Bali round trips and itineraries from Bali to Singapore and reverse. 

Highlights of the six new itineraries in Indonesian waters include the opportunity to view Komodo Dragons, the world's largest living species of lizard that live on Indonesia's islands.  

These itineraries also afford guests the opportunity to see the 'Pinsi', traditional Indonesian sailing ships with long, elegant bows, towering twin masts, streamlined wooden hulls, and seven billowing sails. A port of call into the traditional village of Wera provides the opportunity to see these craft being made and sailed. 

The compact size of the Star Clipper enables her to sail in waters mostly uncharted by larger commercial cruise lines. One such port of call is the Island of Pulau Satonda, off the northern coast of Sumbawa, formed by a volcanic eruption on the sea floor millions of years ago. Satonda is a natural volcanic island and a Marine National Park, with toweirng mountains that shelter a beautiful salt-water lake. 

Other highlights include an optional excursion to Mount Bromo, an active volcano in East Java, set in the middle of a vast plain known as the "Sea of Sand", and the Borobudur Temple Compound, built in the 8th and 9th centuries it is one of the greatest Buddhist monuments in the world.
