When back on the boat, you will be able to take a rest in one of its lounge areas, drink a fresh fruit juice or enjoy a meal that prepared with love by the chef.

Your mind will be full of nice pictures and memories from your day. Thus, you can start to get an idea of what a day on Wisesa would be like. The boat has four guest cabins, all designed for maximum comfort. Cruising Raja Ampat accepts a maximum of eight passengers and six divers.

Cruising Raja Ampat Indonesia Surf Program

This surf charter will start and end in Tobelo city. After your flight from Bali, Cruising Raja Ampat will pick you up at the airport and transfer you on board of Wisesa. The cruise will start immediately and you will have the opportunity to surf on the first day. Cruising Raja Ampat has found some interesting waves on the few islands next to Tobelo, perfect for a warming up.

Then, your surf guide will choose Wisesa’s route regarding wind condition, swell orientation, and size. There are plenty of options, going east to the Buli’s islands, on west coast's Halmahera or to North Morotaï. You will surf many different waves, right and left, secrets spots, and also famous spots, such as Serenade or Indojiwa. If you want to escape the crowded Bali, this cruise is for you!

The good thing about this surf charter is that you will see almost no other surfer. Not because of the quality of the waves, but maybe because of the remoteness of these islands. Many spots are only accessible by boat. The season is from November to February when you touch swell from monsoon and South Pacific cyclone seasons. During this season, winds are mostly light and swells can be consistent.

The boat

Wisesa is Cruising Raja Ampat's new boat built in 2015 to 2016 for liveaboard cruises in Indonesia. They designed a strong and safe vessel, a mix of modern comfort and the charm of a wooden boat. The name “Wisesa” means the power of nature in the Hindu religion.

Cruising Raja Ampat thinks that the boat is the link between them and mother nature. Maybe this is why they feel so in harmony with nature during cruises. The story started in 2015, when two French friends joined a cruise on a small and basic riverboat, deep in the rainforest of South Borneo, looking for orangutans.

After few days on this small boat, they came up with this crazy idea to build and operate an Indonesian wooden boat. Thus, they would be able to share their adventures with others. After that, things went very fast. They designed, learned, and followed the entire construction and did a big part of the engineering. They launched the boat on September 2016.
