Activities and Relaxation

Yoga is one of the best ways to relax before and after a cruise. Non-divers will surely love all the island adventures. Snorkeling is suitable for bonding with friends and family as well as seeing coral gardens, pinnacles, schools of fish, barracudas, soft and hard corals. Kayaking is best for those who want to move with the ocean waves.


The team on board will welcome guests with refreshments and snacks. A short briefing and introductions to give guests safety guidelines along with the itinerary plan. Menjangan Island in the Bali Barat National Park has excellent dive walls, exotic marine life and a variety of birds and deers on the island. Visit Pura Pulaki and witness the religious traditions of the local people and a chance to join them for dinner in the village. Enjoy muck diving to the east of Bali and experience a great feast at the Hidden Paradise in Amed. Bali, Indonesia holds the best destination compared to any liveaboard itinerary in other countries. The best time to visit Bali is during the dry season and offseason to have an uninterrupted holiday.
