The Oracle Indonesia

Indonesia is an archipelago of over 17,000 islands, sprawling along the equator for 5,000km, offering a vast variety of landscape, culture, marine life and underwater sights. Why not explore the remote, underdeveloped and exquisitely beautiful region of east Indonesia by boat – The Oracle - heading out into the untouched ocean wilderness where habitation falls away and forested island appear, ringed by jade-green water.

A Journey on The Oracle

Why not explore the remote, underdeveloped and exquisitely beautiful region of east Indonesia by boat – The Oracle – heading out into the untouched ocean wilderness where habitation falls away and forested island appear, ringed by jade-green water.

The lowdown

  • When To Go

    A boat trip in Indonesia can be taken at any time of year as the yacht can sail different itineraries based on the season.

  • Getting There

    Fly to Bali, then depending on your itinerary you will take a connecting flight within Indonesia to where your boat awaits.

  • Good to Know

    The Oracle has two master cabins and a third suitable for children, which makes it ideal for a small family or two couples.

Your vessel awaits – a beautiful three-cabin Indonesian phinisi yacht made from polished teak, with white sails that unfurl in the breeze and an airy deck where you can watch the sun rise and set while you immerse yourself in the tranquil rhythms of life at sea. Your location? Your choice. Starting in eastern Indonesia there are several clusters of spectacular islands to explore dotted in an unfeasibly clear sea – each one offering something slightly different. Rich in biodiversity, marine life, extraordinary wildlife and fascinating culture, a journey aboard The Oracle is a magnificent adventure.

With only three cabins, The Oracle will only take a small number of guests, so you know your experience will be intimate and based on your wishes. According to your group, you may decide to focus on the best spots for scuba diving or surfing or perhaps you’d like to slow the pace and drop anchor for two or three days in a spot that you’d like to explore in more detail.

"Rich in biodiversity, marine life, extraordinary wildlife and fascinating culture, a journey aboard The Oracle is a magnificent adventure."

The season will dictate your destination though – from May to September you could explore Komodo Island – where primeval Komodo dragons roam amongst volcanoes. Hike the verdant slopes or dive within iridescent waters to spot giant manta rays and blue whales. Recognised as the world’s most bio-diverse marine ecosystem, Raja Ampat, best explored between November  – May has incredible diving and snorkelling in its jade-green water – watch neon-coloured fish flit between World War II seabed wreckage, spot wildlife in coastal mangroves and explore hilly islands on foot.  From April to October, you could discover the remote Alor Archipelago where pelagic species like hammerheads, tuna and billfish will vie for your attention. Hike to the summit of volcano Kelimutu for incredible vistas over the turquoise crater lakes. Remote villages show you traditional way of life with their thatched conical houses and unique ceremonies.

Wherever you choose to go aboard The Oracle, you’ll be greeted by dazzling experiences at every turn. You’ll also be very well looked after from the warm, friendly crew, the chefs who will produce delicious and freshly prepared meals and beach BBQs on deserted beaches to the vessel itself – so well equipped with snorkels, diving gear, kayaks, tenders to take you to islands – there’s even an on-board masseuse.
