Samata Liveaboard has been at the forefront of luxury yacht charters in Indonesia since 2006, offering a one-of-kind, personalized yacht experience on top of its lavishly designed decks. Beginning in 2023, the renowned yacht will be offering short, convenient three-night cruises from Bali with stops at the Gili Islands and North Lombok before reaching Moyo Island and the Northwest Sumbawa Islands.
“This three night/four-day itinerary is fantastic for guests on holiday in Bali to add something special to their trip without having to take flights or lose valuable time traveling somewhere else,” explains Michael Click, Samata Liveaboard Director. “Guests can spend time shopping, diving or snorkeling at the stunning Gili Islands during the day, before enjoying a marvelous diving and snorkeling experience and making a trek to a picturesque waterfall in Moyo Island, our latest coveted destination, at night, where BBQ set dinner will be served on the island’s remote sandy beach as the yacht anchors overnight in the calm waters of Saleh Bay.” The following morning, guests can enjoy a once-in-a-lifetime experience of swimming with gentle whale sharks, long known as the fishermen’s friends, followed by a stop at Satonda Island, where more diving, snorkeling, and trekking may take place. “We provide our guests with guided diving or snorkeling sessions with the help of our experienced instructors,” adds Click. “Guests that take pleasure in water sports can also use our wide range of equipment, including wakeboarding, kayaking, water skiing, stand-up paddle boarding, and even an inflatable donut for kids. Diving courses are available upon request as well.”
Aside from charting the tranquil waters of Bali and Lesser Sunda Islands, Samata Liveaboard also visits iconic tourist destinations in their vicinity, including the UNESCO World Heritage Island of Komodo National Park, which takes place between June and September every year. Meanwhile, for those keen on going further east, the charter yacht also offers trips through the historic islands of the Banda Sea and further on to Raja Ampat National Marine Park from October to March, where guests can bask in the world’s most diverse marine environment with a collection of 1,500 pristine islands.
In keeping with its spirit to celebrate the natural world, particularly the sea ecosystem, Samata Liveaboard has also teamed up with Conservation International and Thrive Conservation, two organizations dedicated to protecting the marine environment.
