Tiger Blue

Tiger Blue is a traditional 112 foot timber phinsi yacht which sails around the beautiful islands of Eastern Indonesia.

The boat has 12 ensuite cabins sleeping up to 12 adults, with a main deck cabin with king size bed, and on the lower deck two cabins with king size beds, a twin cabin with two single bunk beds, and a family cabin which can sleep up to four with a king size bed and two full size single beds.

The boat can be chartered privately or on an individual basis with three core itineraries throughout the year – the Raja Ampat archipelago from November to March, Komodo National Park from May to September, and the Banda Islands from September to October and March to April.

The boat is fully equipped for waterskiing, wakeboarding and diving, with a qualified dive master and up to four dives per day included. There are also two sea kayaks  on board, and a dedicated snorkelling guide. The daily activities are flexible and varied depending on the location. Perhaps go diving or snorkelling after breakfast, or head out on the tender to explore small islands or search for wildlife. Then after lunch back on board enjoy an afternoon of watersports, fish, dive, snorkel, hike or just kick back and relax on board. End the day with sunset cocktails, a bonfire on the beach, stargazing under a clear night sky, or perhaps even a night dive!

We are back and all I can say is what a fantastic tour! Thank you so much for organising, we have both fallen in love with Indonesia and cannot wait to go back to see other things. Sulawesi was fabulous –the diving was so good it was like being in an aquarium. The tarsiers were all that I expected but the black macaques were so much more!

The first evening walk to see the Tarsiers, on the way we saw two Cuscus hanging about in the trees. We saw a couple of Macaques but the main event was the Tarsiers. We saw six in one tree and they are more cute/ugly as their photos. I could have stayed there all night watching them.

The next day we travelled back to see the Macaques, we were a little late and thought we had missed them as a we got to a group of people who had been watching them the macaques turned away into the bush. We carried on walking to look for kingfishers when we found ourselves in the middle of a monkey gang fight. Rambo 1 and Rambo 2 troops had travelled onto each other’s territory and  all hell broke loose! They didn’t care that we were there they just rushed back and forth hollering at each other, it was so exciting watching it.

Once all the testosterone subsided Rambo 2 relaxed and groomed each other we just stood in the middle of them watching them for ages. One  climbed a tree to communicate with me by sticking his tongue out and showing me some very strange facial expressions – Stewart thought he was asking me to be his 3rd wife!  As we stood watching them relaxing, one came to play with my shoelaces and then another liked my trousers, then a brave one climb up me and started grooming my hair! He didn’t give up easily, sticking his fingers in my eyes and kept looking at me seeing how I was reacting– it was a fantastic experience all round.

All  that is left to say is thank you again for giving us the wide variety of what we can see in Indonesia, it has whetted our appetite to see more!  Now to plan for next year –we will be in touch soon!
