Highlights: Sail through Southeast Asia in classic style on board this traditional wooden boat. Permanently based in the diving hot spot of Indonesia, Samata comes prepared with two resident instructors and all the necessary gear for scuba diving and snorkelling, including underwater cameras for photography enthusiasts to capture their experiences. Samata’s ample deck spaces offer plenty of room for al fresco dining and sunbathing but when the weather gets too warm guests can retreat to their air-conditioned, wood-finished cabins. Start your days with a wakeboarding or kayaking session followed by a pampering treatment with the on-board massage therapist.
Location: Samata will be cruising through the Raja Ampat archipelago this spring, a destination renowned as one of the richest marine environments for divers to discover. She’ll then continue to explore her local grounds of Indonesia by venturing to the fabled Komodo island, home to stunning pink sand beaches, rust-red volcanic cliffs and the legendary Komodo dragon.
