After a refreshing welcome drink, you will settle in your ensuite cabin and sail from the bay of Ambon, one of the most beautiful natural harbors of Indonesia. Before proceeding to Manipa, we will find a quiet beach, take some time to refresh ourselves in the clear waters of the Banda Sea, enjoy the sunset and our first dinner on board. Day 2 Today We will stop at the remote island of Manipa. There are still some remaining fortresses here. In the village of Tumalehu we will witness sago processing. Sago, a powdery substance which is won from the heart of the sago palm, is a staple food all over the Moluccas and Papua. Day 3 We will awake in the Bay of Tayeti, Buru. Buru is a scarcely populated, rugged, remote and mountainous island. After visiting a distillery for kayu putih oil (known for its antiseptic qualities) for which Buru is famous, we may choose to explore up-river aboard a local boat allowing us to experience hornbills wildly flapping their wings, women washing clothes, children jumping and splashing, and houses on stilts. We can go ashore to visit a resettlement village where transmigrates from Java, Bali, and Lombok are building a new life on this former political detainee’s island. We will certainly find an opportunity to relax and swim before evening refreshments and dinner. Perhaps the crew will entertain us with an evening of song and dance. Day 4 Our next island stop is Mangoli. The best anchorage is in the Bay of Vesuvius. We go ashore at a small village called Auponhia. We will meet the village head, pay our respects and ask permission for taking a walk along the river and the village gardens. Hordes of singing children likely will accompany us, along with shrieking parrots or other birds. Day 5 Arrival at Taliabu, the third island of the Sula Archipelago. Here we will take a walk into one of the villages in the interior, The people here are semi-nomads. Their traditional dance and singing is known as the Yusa and if sufficient performers are around we may witness a demonstration of the local culture. Here the people are also known for their weaving. In the afternoon we will explore the island coastline stopping at interesting points enroute to Pulau Limbo for snorkeling and a look at the local coral. From here, the ship will sail Westward to the Bowokan and Banggai Islands. Day 6 The grouping of dozens of large and tiny islands of Banngai is an unusual exploration opportunity.
