This wildlife cruise, on board a handsome yacht, takes you to remote Indonesian islands in search of their dazzling birds of paradise and their equally enchanting coral reefs.

Combining a seven-night cruise through the islands of the Raja Ampat archipelago with a three-night stay in a forest lodge on Halmahera, this exceptional tour offers the best of Indonesia's birds of paradise and wonderful snorkelling over vibrant coral reefs. Cruising between the island homes of twelve-wired, red, Wilson's and king birds of paradise, Wallace's standardwing and more, we keep our eyes open for Indo-Pacific bottlenose dolphins and other cetaceans of these warm, biodiverse seas.
