Officers and 200 naval cadets of The Indian Navy paid a good-will visit to Bali's port at Benoa Harbor from January 28 – February 2, 2008.

The three ships are part of the first training squadron of the Indian Navy providing officer-cadets shipboard experience in the practical aspects of seamanship, ship-handling, engineering, weapon handling, an in-depth experience on the sailing, and the rigors of life onboard a ship.

The training squadron is guided by Captain N. N. Rao who commands the three ships:

• Indian Naval Ship Tir - the senor ship of the squadron and the command ship carrying Captain Rao. The ship was commissioned on February 21, 1986 as the first dedicated training ship designed by the Indian Navy and constructed by Mazagon Dock Ltd in Mumbai. The 2,300 tonne ship has a length of 105.85 and a breadth of 13.20 meters.

• Indian Naval Ship Krishna - the second naval ship of the squadron, is commanded by Commander Deepak Kumar. Krishna is a leader class batch III frigate constructed at Portsmouth dockyard and commissioned on August 22, 1995. The ship is 114 meters long and 13 meters wide with a tonnage of 3,140.

• Indian Coast Guard Ship Varuna is the only coast guard ship of the training squadron. The ship was named after Lord Varuna, the sea deity of all mariners and one of the oldest of the Vedic Deities. ICGS Varuna was commissioned into service on February 27, 1988. The ship is led by Commander Kr. Suresh.

During their stay in Bali, the ships were open to visitors. The senior officer of the first training squadron and commanding officers of visiting ships also called on government and naval dignitaries.

Following their Bali visit, the three ships headed to Jakarta, the next port of call on their friendly visit to Indonesia and the region.
