Indonesia is located in Southeast Asia, between the Indian and Pacific oceans. It is an archipelago comprising thousands of islands, with the four largest being Java, Sumatra, Borneo (shared with Malaysia and Brunei), and New Guinea (shared with Papua New Guinea). In fact, Indonesia is the world’s largest island country, meaning there is so much to discover and explore. The seas around Indonesia include the Java Sea, the Flores Sea, the Bali Sea and many more. It is known for its beautiful beaches, tropical climate and diverse marine life, making it a popular destination for boating holidays. Renting a boat in Indonesia can be a great idea as it allows for flexibility and the ability to explore remote islands and beaches that may not be accessible by other means of transportation.
There are many factors that go into the cost of a boat rental in Indonesia.

Considering our wide selection of boats, it may be difficult to know which one to choose. While it is completely up to you, there are a few factors that can help you narrow down your choice. Firstly, you can use the search filters to help narrow down your options by selecting the dates you choose to travel and how many people you are. From here, you can compare prices and models. Often, people that are renting a boat for a shorter period of time decide to book a motorboat because they are simple to navigate. In contrast, sailboats and gulets are great for long journeys and big groups. All in all, the choice is completely up to you and your preferences.
Indonesia has a tropical climate, meaning it has hot temperatures of around 30 degrees Celsius and high levels of humidity throughout the year. In general, there are two seasons: the dry and wet seasons. The best time to visit Indonesia is during the dry season which occurs from May to September. This is because it offers great opportunities for outdoor activities such as sailing, hiking and swimming. In contrast, the wet season can be unpredictable with heavy rain that makes it uncomfortable to do activities.
As you search through the wide array of boats on Nautal, you will find that many come with the option to include a skipper. While this is not always mandatory, it can be a great idea to have a skipper on board your charter, even if you have nautical experience. This is because a skipper will handle all of the navigational aspects, leaving you with more time to relax and enjoy your holiday. Moreover, a skipper on your boat rental in Indonesia will be familiar with the waters, so they can show you the best the country has to offer. Especially considering the vast number of islands, having a local to help guide you around each one will be beneficial. Finally, if you want to have a particularly luxurious experience, then a skipper is a great choice because you can also organise for them to help cook and clean for you during your journey.
As soon as you visit Indonesia, you will notice that there is no shortage of activities to enjoy on your holiday. In a country so rich in culture, history and natural beauty, there is something for everyone. Here are our recommendations on what to do to make your boat rental in Indonesia an unforgettable experience.
Firstly, considering the country is made up of thousands of islands, island hopping with your charter is a must. The three main destinations are Bali and Komodo.
Found in the westernmost of the Lesser Sunda Islands, Bali is one of the most popular destinations in Indonesia. In particular, it is known for its beautiful beaches and lush green mountains. We highly recommend taking your boat around the island to experience as many beaches as you can. Some of the most popular ones include Kuta and Seminyak with crystal clear waters and soft sands. Similarly, you can take a day trip to Nusa Penida. This is a small island just off the southeast coast of Bali that has amazing wildlife. This is a great place to soak up the Indonesian sun and snorkel.
If you want to disembark from your boat, you can experience the wonderful Indonesian culture by visiting temples and towns. For example, you can visit the Uluwatu Temple and Tanah Lot Temple. Many of the temples are situated near the water, making them great places to visit during a sunset or sunrise hour.
Komodo Island is a part of the Komodo National Park in the Nusa Tenggara region of Indonesia. This island is especially known for its unique flora and fauna. Of course, as the name suggests, the most popular of which is the Komodo Dragon. On this island, you can see the large lizards in their natural habitat. Moreover, if you have the time, you can travel to the other islands in the Komodo Dragon National Park such as Rinca Island, Padar Island and Gili Lawa Island. In each of these places, you can discover the beauty of Indonesia in a unique way.
