SeaTrek Sailing Adventures 2017 Sailings

#expeditioncruising



At SeaTrek Sailing Adventures, we are pleased to announce the release of our 2017 schedule, a fanciful mix of old favourites with a few as-yet-unannounced surprises, including some big names that we know will have people banging on our hatches to get on board. We kick off the season in April with our ever-popular Dances, Dragons and Magical Lakes’ cruises between Bali and Komodo, and onwards through to the Spice Islands around September and October, before we find ourselves in Raja Ampat for snorkelling and paddling towards November and the end of the year as the trade winds turn favourable in the east.

Our award-winning Expert-Led Expeditions are again leading the way to adventure and exploration and include our Tribal Weaving tours with Sue and Dave Richardson, Rafaella Commitante’s Orangutan Cruises to Borneo, two discovery tours through the magical Spice Islands ­– Ian Burnet’s East Indies Spice Exploration and Nick Burningham’s Spice Routes/ Spice Wars – Jeffrey Mellefont’s historical journey through the archipelago’s Seafaring Traditions, a Seabird Research trip with Gert de Jong, and Dr Tony Whitten’s Wallace Trails and Sails and the search for the Birds of Paradise.

Food and literature lovers can enjoy not one, but three food cruises this year with Bali luminary, Janet DeNeefe. First off is the Ubud Food Festival cruise, followed by the Ubud Writers and Readers Festival cruise, where she will be blending literature with the flavours, spices, and culinary secrets of Indonesia in the company of some very special guests, and finally the Circle of Spice cruise to the fabled Spice Islands themselves.

Our Customised Cruises have become more and more popular over the past two years with families and special groups looking for that something a little bit different, and Katharina has been pretty busy. But it’s early days yet, so watch this space for more surprises and specialty cruises as they come to light. At the moment, these are some exciting things under negotiation, but we will be making announcements later in the year. In the meantime, you can rest assured that they will be well worth the wait and made available as soon as we are able.
