WHO: Arenui Luxury Boutique Yacht
WHEN: August 17-25, 2026
WHERE: Borneo, Indonesia
A new destination! A once in a lifetime trip! And we will be extending our stay to stay at an Eco Lodge where will will be able to interact with the Orangutans!!!!!
Our journey will start and end in Tarakan, located on Tarakan Island. It is one of the major cities in northern Borneo, close to the Malaysian border from Sabah, Malaysia. Tarakan is well connected to Singapore via Balikpapan. Tarakan is also well connected to Bali and Jakarta via Balikpapan.
This 9 day, 8-Night cruise takes us between the islands and reefs rising up from the Makassar Strait. After leaving the coast of Borneo, the ocean floor becomes very deep, very soon. As we continue farther out, a number of incredible coral reefs and islands grow up to the surface from the depths. Nutrient rich currents bring up big fish from the deep into shallower waters, allowing us to see them pursuing reef fish in hope of catching a meal.
Each island has its own unique character. We can see entire schools of manta rays at Sangalaki that are drawn here to feed on plankton. As well as turtles, Derawan has elusive treasures to be found; here we search for hidden critters. Maratua hosts massive marvels, such as sharks, barracudas and more mantas! At Kakaban island, plunge into the saltwater lake full with non-stinging jellyfish in the middle of the island. Dive the incredible walls encircling the island of Kakaban. In the shallow waters encircling Samama, we scan for an abundance of macro critters, hiding in plain sight.
After our cruise we plan on heading to Rimba Orangutan Ecolodge which is perched over the gently flowing Sekonyer River on the edge of the Tanjung Puting National Park. It is remote - only accessible by traditional Klotok boat. The property feels as though it is straight out of a movie set, with exotic covered boardwalks connecting the rooms with the restaurant and social spaces. This is the place for Orangutan tours in Indonesia! Rimba is truly special, located in one of the few remaining places on earth where Orangutans can be seen in the wild. On a visit here, you may encounter seven other primate species, a rich bird life and explore the lush surrounding rainforest.
