Boat Facilities
The boat is not luxury! It is a local basic buginese wooden boat, basic equipped without much comfort. Backpacker style for low budget trvelers! Fresh water to take a shower is limited. Radio communication is available on board. Life jackets are provided. For noise sensitive travelers the sound of the engines might disturb your sleep in case the boat travels during the night or early morning. Nevertheless it is a great adventure for an affordable price for a four day journey and the listed service.

Some boats have one to two cabins. They are very simple and only offer space for a double mattress. The advantage is that you have more privacy. The disadvantage it might be hot in the cabin and you also hear the engine of the boat during the night.
