View Yacht Charters

Discover the exotic islands of Indonesia, brimming with natural wonders and incredible culture.

Although Indonesia is one of the most populated countries in the world, once you leave the frantic cities, there are vast areas of wilderness, unspoiled beaches, and crystalline waters to enjoy. The nation comprises more than 18,100 islands, ideal for an island-hopping adventure aboard a luxury yacht.

Head ashore during your luxury yacht charter in Indonesia to explore lush tropical rainforests and sleepy volcanoes, or dive below the waterline to explore the abundant sea life. Indonesia also boasts its fair share of luxurious restaurants, beach clubs, and resorts; most of these are found on the island of Bali, Indonesia’s best-known isle, and the ideal starting point for your charter.

Volcanic mountains & flourishing marine life

Situated along the Pacific Ring of Fire, you will cruise past giant, sleeping volcanoes during your Indonesian yacht charter. These volcanoes birthed the islands above the water and the coral reefs that flourish below. As part of the Coral Triangle, unspoiled coral reefs abound. The reefs are filled with thriving, diverse marine life making Indonesia a dream for snorkelers and divers.

The remote region of the West Papua Province

Wildly beautiful, the West Papua Province is home to Raja Ampat. This remote region is quickly gaining recognition for strikingly clear waters, offering the most diverse diving on earth. More than 1,300 species of fish and an amazing variety of corals are found in Raja Ampat’s waters. On land, the biodiversity is also highly unusual. Climb to the stunning viewpoints of Waigeo and Misool and explore some of the many caves, such as the revered Tamulol cave, which opens to a massive, hidden lagoon.

The legendary Komodo Dragon

Indonesia is home to the legendary Komodo Dragon, found in the archipelago of Komodo. Be sure to stop and get a glimpse and a picture of these incredible animals.

Bali; the Island of the Gods

Known as The Island of the Gods, daily life in Bali is influenced by its unique Hindu culture; there are numerous celebrations to honor deities. The island is also home to many of the nation’s five-star resorts, restaurants, private villas, state-of-the-art spas, and Ubud’s artist colonies. Celebrities have long favored Bali as their vacation destination because of its remoteness and beauty.

Indonesia Yacht Charter: FAQs

Where is Indonesia?

Indonesia is the world’s largest archipelago, located in Southeast Asia, between the Indian Ocean and the Pacific Ocean. It spans a vast area of approximately 1.9 million square kilometers (around 735,000 square miles) and consists of more than 17,000 islands, making it the world’s largest island country by both land area and total number of islands. Its natural beauty, coupled with its vast coastline, makes it a great destination for a private yacht charter.

Indonesia is situated between the continents of Asia and Australia, with its northern border adjacent to the Asian mainland and its southern border near the continent of Australia. The equator crosses through Indonesia, dividing the country into the northern and southern hemispheres.

To the north, Indonesia shares land borders with Papua New Guinea, East Timor, and Malaysia. It also shares maritime borders with Singapore, the Philippines, Palau, and Australia.

Some of the largest islands in Indonesia include Java, Sumatra, Borneo (shared with Malaysia and Brunei), Sulawesi, and New Guinea (shared with Papua New Guinea). The capital city, Jakarta, is located on the island of Java, which is the most populous island in Indonesia.

What's the weather like in Indonesia?

Indonesia’s weather varies across its vast archipelago due to its tropical climate and diverse geography.

Wet Season and Dry Season: Indonesia experiences two main seasons: the wet season (also known as the monsoon season) and the dry season. The wet season typically occurs from November to March, while the dry season usually runs from April to October. However, the timing and intensity of these seasons can vary depending on the region.

Temperature: Indonesia generally has warm temperatures year-round due to its location near the equator. Average temperatures typically range from 25°C to 32°C (77°F to 90°F) in coastal areas and lower elevations.

Humidity: Humidity levels in Indonesia are typically high, especially during the wet season. Humidity can make the temperatures feel warmer and contribute to the tropical feel of the climate.

Rainfall: During the wet season, Indonesia experiences heavy rainfall, particularly in the western regions, such as Sumatra and Java, as well as parts of Sulawesi and Kalimantan (Borneo). Rainfall can be less intense in the eastern regions, such as Bali, Nusa Tenggara, and Papua.

Monsoons: Indonesia experiences both the northeast monsoon (November to March) and the southwest monsoon (June to September), which influence the distribution of rainfall across the country.
