Facts & Fiction about Sailing to & Cruising Indonesia:
Indonesia is destination, not a stopover! Many of those who actually take the time to really cruise Indonesia say that Indonesia is the world’s best cruising ground!
Despite what you may have been led to believe by some, the process of entry into Indonesia is not complicated or expensive.
Unlike others that are professing to be ‘experts’ on sailing to & cruising in Indonesia, founder & director of Marina Del Ray, Raymond La Fontaine, an Australian Captain, has actually sailed to Indonesia from Australia in 2007. Ray has spent over a decade sailing & cruising in Indonesia, which means he has something of great value to offer, Local Knowledge, which as all cruising sailors know is a very valuable resource. Ray is eager to share this knowledge & provide advice based on his own experience as a cruising yachtsman on routes to Indonesia from Australia and the best way to go about exploring & enjoying Indonesia when you arrive.
