Sailing Vessel Tour.

This section covers Kumai (a highlight!) in the west of Indonesia. Kumai is a true jungle town, with shades of Lord Jim.

If you ever get to Kumai or Lombok island, you should contact him at:

We enjoyed our sailing vessel tour so very much. Ivend was a try pleasure to have for our guide. His love of nature and of the creatures and this area is obvious and we appreciated everything he did for us. Also, Popeye and our cook were incredible - thank you so very much for a lovely experience. We are also very happy that we had the big boat "Princess" - so nice!.

The instructions for sailing vessel tour wanting to sail upriver to Kumai are as follows.

Using Admiralty chart 1964, proceed to the green buoy at 02 57’ .5 South,
111 41’.0 East. As you approach the buoy, look for the leading marks (white Triangle) on the shore, bearing 023 True. Leaving the buoy to starboard, steer 023 True, parallel to the shore, for about 3 NM to Tanjung Keluang point, avoiding the shoal that extends from the shore. At Tanjung Keluang, alter course towards the next leading marks, which bear 335 True (small white post in front of white triangle on the far shore).

These marks are difficult to see. After about 1 NM on this heading, you will see leading marks on your port side (white post and triangle) – when these are in line bearing 023 True, alter course to 030 True. Ahead you should see the next set of leading marks (two tall white posts) on this bearing, but they may be difficult to identify. Continue upstream for about 3.5 NM, towards the leads, then continue further upstream, staying mid-channel, to Kumai.

There are no other leading marks or buoys. Do not anchor opposite main harbor of Kumai, just anchor down or up from the harbor. Big ship is coming often from java. Anchor opposite the town, close to the eastern bank of the Kumai River. Also just up from main harbor of Kumai, there is a office of national park and they have a jetty where you can put your dinghy.
