DAY 1

Upon arrival at Luwuk Airport, we will transfer to the harbor where we embark on our vessel, the BUGIS. While sailing, our cruise director will provide a briefing to familiarize you with the vessel and our safety procedures. In the late afternoon, we will make a stop at a charming beach. As night falls, we will weigh anchor to continue our journey along the picturesque coast.


DAY 2

On our first day in the archipelago, we'll visit the second  protected marine area we support. We'll hop on a Zodiac  boat to explore the clear waters around the lagoon of  Malapati reef for our first snorkeling adventure. After that,  during lunch, the boat will take us to Sidula Island for some  beach time and more snorkeling fun.


DAY 3

In the morning, we'll reach a small island surrounded by  beautiful white-sand beaches and turquoise waters in the  Banggai Archipelago atoll. Our day will be filled with  snorkeling, swimming, and a barbecue on the lovely beach.  In the afternoon, we'll take a short sail to a tiny island to  meet a small community called Bajau who live there. We'll  enjoy a bonfire with them on the beach as the sun sets.


DAY 4

After getting back on board, we'll keep sailing to the next island,  where we'll meet the Bugis and Bajau communities on the island of  Nal and learn about how they connect with each other. We will also  have the chance to go snorkeling on a beautiful reef. In the  afternoon, we'll set sail for another island to enjoy a beautiful beach  and more snorkeling.


DAY 5

This day promises exciting exploration with visits to "Bajo"  villages, where you'll likely be the center of attention as it's a  place rarely visited by foreigners. In the early morning,  weather permitting, we'll be on Toropot Island to explore two  picturesque Bajau villages. These communities primarily  sustain themselves through the octopus trade and seagrass.  The highlight of the day will be snorkeling near the  mangroves, offering a chance to spot the endemic "Banggai  cardinal fish." We'll also go ashore and visit a traditional  village in the interior, witnessing fishermen trading their daily  catch.


DAY 6

In the northeastern part of Banggai Island, we'll find the  most breathtaking beaches in the archipelago. Though we  might not get to explore all of them, we'll definitely make a  stop under the shade of a tree along the fine sandy  shoreline. Here, we can enjoy snorkeling around the superb  reef. Additionally, we'll embark on a Zodiac raid to meet the  local fishermen. As the sun sets, we'll raise the anchor and  head to our final destination, Luwuk.


DAY 7

We will arrive at the harbour of Luwuk early morning. After  breakfast we say farewell to the crew and we will be  transferred to the airport for the return flight to Bali.
