Day One – Singapore to South China Sea – Distance: 140nm
Morning departure from ONE°15 Marina Club in Singapore. Customs and Immigration clearance out of Singapore is a quick and efficient on-water process that occurs just a few minutes from the marina. After completion of formalities, enjoy a two-hour sail across the busy Singapore Straits to Nongsa Point Marina.
At Nongsa Point, check into Indonesia. After a relaxing stop, Blaze II sets sail for the Anambas Islands.
Day Two – Pulau Bawah – Distance: 15nm
As the sun rises on Day Two, awake to the first of the Anambas Islands coming into view below clear blue skies.
Arrival at Pulau Bawah at approximately 10am. Anchor in the lagoon, surrounded by pristine white sand beaches and coral reefs. There is a new luxury resort on the island, providing opportunities for dining ashore, and several hiking trails on the islands.
Day Three – Exploring Pulau Bawah
A second day in this amazing anchorage. Suggested activities include paddle boarding, snorkelling and rendez-vous diving.
Day Four – Pulau Airabu – Distance: 19nm
On Day Four, we weigh anchor for a pleasant three-hour sail to Pulau Airabu, and another stunning, azure colored lagoon. With a little luck and a keen eye, we may be escorted by a playful pod of dolphins, or catch a few tuna for a delicious fresh seafood dinner. At Airabu, there are beaches, mangrove forests and coral reefs to explore in every direction, but very likely not another yacht in sight for the duration of our stay.
Day Five – Lubang Tamban – Distance: 15nm
We depart at about 9am for our next destination, the island group of Lubang Tamban, sailing with the wind, to the Northeast for about two hours. The islands are largely uninhabited and surrounded by amazing coral reefs.
Day Six – Tarempa, Siantan Island – Distance: 19nm
On Day Six, we continue further into the heart of the Anambas Islands, to Tarempa, the administrative center of the islands. Your captain will take care of local clearance formalities while guests stroll through this friendly and clean town, with many small shops, a bakery and a market offering a wide range of items. Dine on-board, or enjoy a local seafood dinner at one of the lively restaurants in town.
Days Seven and Eight – Jemaja Island Group – Distance: 30nm
On Day Seven, we set sail for the Jemaja Island group, a pleasant four-hour sail. This group of islands is again largely uninhabited, but contains numerous wonderfully sheltered bays and coves. We will spend at least one night at Pulau Ayam, a true gem, with fine white sand beaches, and the remains of a simple resort onshore. Many interesting features to explore here.
On the following day, we cruise to Padang Melang, which has the longest white sand beach in the Anambas, and a small, colourful village to explore. Beyond the village lie waterfalls and shimmering rice fields for those curious to explore further afield.
Day Nine – Departure for Nongsa Point Marina – Distance: 140nm
After a final delicious breakfast prepared by our professional chef, we hoist the main sail and set course for Nongsa Point Marina. This is a great opportunity to help take the helm or trim the sails of the catamaran, or curl up with a favourite book. The only interruptions will be the occasional tuna striking our fishing lines, or dolphins surfing on the bow waves.
Day Ten – Return to Singapore – Distance: 15nm
After checking into Nongsa Point Marina at about 9:00am, we will depart for Sisters Islands, Singapore, for inward immigration clearance to Singapore. After a farewell breakfast, disembarkation at ONE°15 Marina Club in Sentosa around noon.
