    There is truly no greater cruising ground than Indonesia. With 18,000 isles covering some two million square miles of pristine tropical water and a rich and vibrant local culture there truly can be no comparison. Cruising Guide Indonesia covers everything the prudent navigator needs to safely ply the Indonesian waters and enjoy the largest and best island nation in the world.

  • Detailed charts including approaches, waypoints and GPS coordinates.
  • Dangers, chart errors, missing islands, reefs and rocks.
  • Formalities, Immigration, Customs, Harbor Master and National Park regulations.
  • Regional weather patterns, local anomalies and currents.

  • Comprehensive coverage: 304 pages thick with more than 400 anchorages.

    Sailing in Indonesia is definitely on the rise and more and more yachts are visiting every year. The Indonesian government is pushing hard for development in the marine sector and new facilities are being built and funded as demand increases. Government regulations are changing for the better and the old large scale corruption seems to have been eradicated and sailors are taking note. Instead of hurriedly passing through the country yachts are now beginning to linger and some are even choosing to stay year around.
    The new edition of this very popular guide will keep you up to date with all the formalities and hurdles you may come across.

    The second edition of this comprehensive pilot incorporates information collected by the authors during their cruises in the area during 2000-2001. Some 70 anchorages were resurveyed and new ones explored, and the details of these have been included in this edition. Improved coverage of diving and diving sites is also one of the key improvements. Dive sites are now clearly identified.
    Users of the authors' guides to Southeast Asia will be familiar with their background information on culture, history and politics - an attractive feature of their writing, and in this new edition of Red Sea Pilot discussions on the history of the pilotage and charting of the area have been added. There are particularly interesting sections on hydrographic surveying and, with this in mind, the authors have included their own sketch charts of the Sudan coast which are folded into the back of this volume.
    For this edition the cartography has been completely renewed and is now clearer. The text is illustrated by a section of colour plates which capture the atmosphere of the sometimes harsh but always fascinating geography of the area covered by the pilot.
