Indonesia Islands

The islands of Indonesia, also known as the Indonesian Archipelago, may refer either to the islands comprising the country of Indonesia or to the geographical groups which include its islands.

According to the Indonesian Coordinating Ministry for Maritime and Investments Affairs, of 17,508 officially listed islands within the territory of the Republic of Indonesia.

16,671 island names have been verified by the United Nations Group of Experts on Geographical Names (UNGEGN) as of 2018. This makes Indonesia the world’s largest island country.

Boats

A boat is a watercraft of a large range of types and sizes, but generally smaller than a ship, which is distinguished by its larger size, shape, cargo or passenger capacity, or its ability to carry boats.

Small boats are typically found on inland waterways such as rivers and lakes, or in protected coastal areas. However, some boats, such as the whaleboat, were intended for use in an offshore environment.

Boats vary in proportion and construction methods with their intended purpose, available materials, or local traditions. Fishing boats vary widely in style partly to match local conditions.

Pleasure craft used in recreational boating include ski boats, pontoon boats, and sailboats. House boats may be used for vacationing or long-term residence. Lifeboats have rescue and safety functions.

Boats can be propelled by manpower (e.g. rowboats and paddle boats), wind (e.g. sailboats), and motor (including gasoline, diesel, and electric).

Sailboat

A sailboat or sailing boat is a boat propelled partly or entirely by sails and is smaller than a sailing ship. Distinctions in what constitutes a sailing boat and ship vary by region and maritime culture.

Although sailboat terminology has varied across history, many terms have specific meanings in the context of modern yachting.

A great number of sailboat-types may be distinguished by size, hull configuration, keel type, purpose, number and configuration of masts, and sail plan.

A schooner has a mainmast taller than its foremast, distinguishing it from a ketch or a yawl. A schooner can have more than two masts, with the foremast always lower than the foremost main.

Traditional topsail schooners have topmasts allowing triangular topsails sails to be flown above their gaff sails.

A dinghy is a type of small open sailboat commonly used for recreation, sail training, and tending a larger vessel. They are popular in youth sailing programs for their short LOA, simple operation and minimal maintenance. They have three (or fewer) sails: the mainsail, jib, and spinnaker.

The most common modern sailboat is the sloop, which features one mast and two sails, This simple configuration is very efficient for sailing into the wind.

Type of Sailing Boats

Pinisi

Literally, the word pinisi refers to a type of rigging (the configuration of masts, sails and ropes (‘lines’) of Indonesian sailing vessels. A pinisi carries seven to eight sails on two masts, arranged like a gaff-ketch with what is called ‘standing gaffs’

Pinisi-rigged ships were mainly built by the Konjo-speaking people of Ara, a village in the district of Bontobahari, Bulukumba regency, South Sulawesi, and widely used by Buginese and Makassarese seafarers as a cargo vessel.

In the years before the eventual disappearance of wind-powered transport in course of the motorization of Indonesia’s traditional trading fleet in the 1970/80s, vessels using a pinisi rig were the largest Indonesian sailing ships.

Catamaran

Designed with ample space, elegant interiors, and high stability, catamarans ensure a safe and comfortable sailing experience. See Details : Aneecha Catamaran or Nyaman Catamaran in Bali, Labuan Bajo and around Raja Ampat.

Yacht

Modern, comfortable, and equipped with a range of top-notch amenities — including fully-equipped cabins and sun decks — yachts offer an excellent sailing experience no matter your destination.

Fast Boat

A fast boat is a small, fast boat designed with a long narrow platform and a planning hull to enable it to reach high speeds. See Details : Lianinti Fast Boat in Nusa Penida – Lembongan – Bali Island.

A typical fast boat is laid-up using a combination of fiberglass, Kevlar and carbon fiber, using a deep “V” style offshore racing hull ranging from 6.1 to 15.2 meters (20 to 50 ft.) long, narrow in beam, and equipped with two or more powerful engines, often totaling more than 750 kilowatts (1,000 hp).

The boats can typically travel at speeds over 80 knots (150 km/h; 92 mph) in calm waters, over 50 knots (93 km/h) in choppy waters, and maintain 25 knots (46 km/h; 29 mph) in the average 1.5-to-2.1-metre (5 to 7 ft) Caribbean seas. They are heavy enough to cut through higher waves, although slower.

A small low cabin under the foredeck is typical, much smaller than a typical motor yacht of similar size.

Water Activities : Snorkeling and Diving Trip

Snorkeling

Snorkeling (British and Commonwealth English spelling: snorkeling) is the practice of swimming on or through a body of water while equipped with a diving mask, a shaped breathing tube called a snorkel, and usually swim fins. In cooler waters, a wetsuit may also be worn.

Use of this equipment allows the snorkeler to observe underwater attractions for extended periods with relatively little effort and to breathe while face-down at the surface.

Snorkeling is a popular recreational activity, particularly at tropical resort locations.

It provides the opportunity to observe underwater life in a natural setting without the complicated equipment and training required for scuba diving.

It appeals to all ages because of how little effort is involved and is the basis of the two surface disciplines of the underwater sport of fin swimming.

The Republic of Indonesia stretches more than 2250NM from Kilometers Nol on Pulau Weh in the northern hemisphere to Kupang, East Timor in the southern hemisphere.

The Indonesian archipelago is the largest island group in the world. The number of actual islands claimed varies from 14,752 (official UN figure) to 18,108 (Indonesian Government).

With a population of more than 260 million people, Indonesia is the world’s most populated Muslim-majority country and the fourth most populous country in total.

Indonesia has hundreds of distinct native ethnic and linguistic groups, with the largest ethnic group being the Javanese.

The country’s official language is Bahasa Indonesia. 

Straddling the equator, Indonesia has a hot and humid climate with two main seasons – the Rainy Season and the Dry Season.  See the Weather section for more details.

The thousands of islands are popular cruising grounds for sailors.

However, it is prone to earthquakes and tsunamis because it lies along the “Ring of Fire”, an arc of volcanoes and fault lines in the Pacific Basin.

Anyone planning to sail in the area should be well aware of the risks and plan accordingly.

The largest islands are Java, Sumatra, Papua (formerly known as Irian Jaya – the western part of Papua New Guinea) and Kalimantan (formerly Borneo).

Most yachts cruise the islands from east to west, each island different from its neighbour.

Scuba Diving

Scuba diving is a mode of underwater diving where the diver uses a self-contained underwater breathing apparatus (scuba), which is completely independent of surface supply, to breathe underwater.

Scuba divers carry their own source of breathing gas, usually compressed air, allowing them greater independence and freedom of movement than surface-supplied divers, and longer underwater endurance than breath-hold divers.

Although the use of compressed air is common, a mixture of air and oxygen called enriched air or nitrox has become popular due to its benefit of reduced nitrogen intake during long or repetitive dives.

Open circuit scuba systems discharge the breathing gas into the environment as it is exhaled, and consist of one or more diving cylinders containing breathing gas at high pressure which is supplied to the diver through a regulator.

They may include additional cylinders for range extension, decompression gas or emergency breathing gas.

Scuba diving may be done recreationally or professionally in a number of applications, including scientific, military and public safety roles, but most commercial diving uses surface-supplied diving equipment when this is practicable.

A scuba diver primarily moves underwater by using fins attached to the feet, but external propulsion can be provided by a diver propulsion vehicle, or a sled pulled from the surface.

Other equipment needed for scuba diving includes a mask to improve underwater vision, exposure protection (ie: a wet suit or dry suit), equipment to control buoyancy, a diving regulator to control the pressure of breathing gas for diving, and equipment related to the specific circumstances and purpose of the dive.

Some scuba divers use a snorkel when swimming on the surface. Scuba divers are trained in the procedures and skills appropriate to their level of certification by instructors affiliated to the diver certification organizations which issue these certifications.

These include standard operating procedures for using the equipment and dealing with the general hazards of the underwater environment, and emergency procedures for self-help and assistance of a similarly equipped diver experiencing problems.

A minimum level of fitness and health is required by most training organizations, but a higher level of fitness may be appropriate for some applications.
