A more leisurely cruise will give you time to encounter locals and floating villages in little visited areas where you will receive a warm welcome. Sail deeper into the bay and witness nature at its most spectacular, relax in secluded locations, take part in our water activities, have a BBQ on a wild beach and marvel at the night sky, free from light pollution, packed full with stars.
Completely a la carte, we can tailor make whatever you wish for with exclusive and personalized services with your own speedboat and butler.
