A recognized global leader in luxury small-ship expeditions, Aqua Expeditions, introduces their first-ever oceangoing explorer yacht, Aqua Blu and a brand-new experience in the far-flung East Indonesian Archipelago. With year-round departures and once-in-a-lifetime, 7- and 12-night itineraries, Aqua Blu sails through East Indonesia’s pristine seas and three spectacular destinations – Komodo National Park and Moyo Island, the Spice Islands and Raja Ampat.
Led by highly-experienced crew and guides, guests can embark on epic adventures amid some of the most strikingly beautiful regions on the planet and arguably, the world’s most biodiverse marine habitats. With a grand legacy as the former British Naval Explorer HMS Beagle and later, the private yacht of a European aristocratic family, this one-of-a-kind coastal cruiser is a compelling maritime statement. A 2019 refurbishment brings the five-deck vessel to world-class explorer yacht specifications and sustainable commitments unparalleled in East Indonesia. The RINA-classed, SOLAS-certified steel-hull small ship boasts 15 individually designed, ocean-facing suites, complete with premium fittings befitting of a luxury odyssey and premium watersports equipment.
