Three years in the making, Waka has recently launched their luxurious state-of-the-art sailing catamaran adding yet another dimension to the "Waka Experience" – the Balinese-owned company's distinctive range of accommodation and holiday experiences.
16 meters in length and capable of accommodating 30 passengers, the Waka Sailing Catamaran is fully-crewed by a talented team equally adept at setting the mainsails and setting a tray of delicious refreshments. Based at Bali's Benoa Harbor, the "cat's" home port is a short drive from most major hotels in the southern part of Bali.
The Waka Sailing Catamaran is currently offering a choice of two cruise experiences, available on either an individual or exclusive charter basis.
An 8:30 a.m. sailing time brings you into Bali's Badung Strait while enjoying a breakfast of fresh juice, coffee and freshly-baked pastries. Under sail, the "cat" heads north, dropping anchor at Candi Dasa just before lunch. There, in the shadows of impressive sacred Mt. Agung, guests are ferried ashore to explore local villages and shops, swim, snorkel and partake in a delicious BBQ lunch. A mid-afternoon sail back to the south has passengers arriving back at Benoa harbor at sunset, just in time for a dash back to your hotel to commence another tropical evening in Bali.
A 9:00 a.m. sailing from Benoa harbor permits a landing at Bali's nearest island neighbor, Nusa Lembongan at 11:00 a.m. while enjoying light refreshment along the way. Passengers are free to spend 5 hours ashore on Nusa Lembongan, using the many recreational facilities available at Waka's Luxury Reef Club, explore a nearby village, visit an unique underground house, or see first-hand how the local seaweed farmers harvest their crop. During the visit a sumptuous Indonesian-style lunch is served at the Resort. A 3:30 p.m. departure allows a leisurely sail back to port, witnessing the sunset just as the ship comes alongside at its home port pier.
