Private Overnight Cruises
Duration : 30 hours
Including ground transport to/from your hotel and Royal Langkawi Yacht Club.
This tour will be the highlight of your holiday on Langkawi, that is for sure! It is almost about the same as the 8 hour tour but we stay overnight on a stunning anchorages. Within this day we sail around the two larger island Pulau Tuba and Pulau Dayang Bunting. That indicates we sail from south east over south and then to the west of the archipelago. Innumerable little islands on the way make the scenery truly special and much nicer than other more famous holiday-destinations can offer. Being sailors since more than 2 decades, we can honestly say that Langkawi is unmatched!
This tour starts at the time you request, however we recommend a start at 12 noon. After leaving the marina we sail direction Pulau Tuba to the south east. Sometimes dolphins accompany us for a while – that is always fantastic. During this little journey we serve you a selection of exquisite tapas for lunch. Our first anchorage is in between 5 little islands – uninhabited by humans but you are guaranteed to see lots of eagles in their natural habitat. With the dinghy you can explore the area including a cave where bats live. If you are lucky you can see hornbills and blue kingfishers.
After about one hour we weigh anchor again and continue direction south through a number of little islands. Our next anchorage, only some 30 min. away, is in the very south of Dayang Bunting surrounded by 3 islands. This has been a pirate’s-hide-away for centuries; well protected in all weather conditions and not far away from the Straights of Melacca. Just around the corner is one of the most beautiful beaches of the area. Some film productions have been done here – now this beach is yours! You may take the dinghy with our crew. You can just relax, collect stones or shells and go for or swim. Enjoy a cold beer or a glass of wine in a crystal glass – you will have a well stocked ice-box next to you. Our following passage is like a river, high, dramatic cliffs and untouched mangroves on the sides. We call it our “Tropical Norwegian Fjord". Just stunning!
This is our anchorage for the night. You will be served an exquisite dinner according to you personal preferences, prepared on board by our highly esteemed chef. We decorate it on banana leaves and serve it on the upper deck. Be assured that this is the ultimate restaurant around and all yours! The rest of the evening you enjoy the way you want it. Listen to the sound of the jungle or to some
romantic music (we have a good sound system and you may bring your own music on either your phone or i-pod), watch the stars or whatever you like. You choose where you want to sleep: the upper deck has very comfortable mattresses and cushions. To sleep right under the stars, rocked gently by the boat is the ultimate experience if you ask me; I do it all the time and love it. But the cabin can be converted to a large bed. As we have a generator, you decide if you like the air-condition to run. You will not hear the air-con and neither the generator. The cabin can be locked from inside and you are guaranteed that you privacy is undisturbed.
If you have never seen the sun rising on the ocean, this is the perfect journey to do so. For some people it can be an unforgettable experience. After a refreshing swim and a shower we serve you breakfast according to your personal wishes but including freshly squeezed orange juice, tropical fruits, a selection of fresh bread, jam and eggs. Best coffee and tea are a good start for the day ahead. This day we again skipper you through the archipelago. We make stops at any time of your liking and you decide about the activities you want do. At about 6 pm we arrive back in the marina and if you like, we arrange a dinner table for you at the Royal Langkawi Yacht Club.
The ship sails to the north east coast to Pulau Timun. We will stop at a beautiful anchorage well off the tourist track. There you can explore the area by dinghy. Alternatively we can land you on an idyllic deserted beach where you can simply laze, or just take a refreshing swim. After about 1 hour we weigh anchor and sail on through our “Tropical Norwegian Fjord," a stunning area where you are surrounded by steep limestone cliffs, covered with lush tropical forest. We then drop anchor again at a serene, sheltered and secluded spot, where we will serve you our famous dinner, freshly prepared on board and decorated on banana leaves.
As the sun sets to the west, we steer towards Kuah bay. Sometimes the tropical sunset here is like the sky is on fire. You are now opposite of our highest mountain Gunung Raya and the fire-like red clouds sometimes give the false impression of this mountain being a volcano – spectacular! We steer back to the marina before it gets completely dark and then invite you for a last drink or two before we order you a taxi to pick you up.
