Follow in the footsteps of naturalist Alfred Wallace as you explore the Indonesian archipelago with traditional boat Katharina.

Set the sails with Katharina and guides, Ray and Angela as you follow in the footsteps of naturalist Alfred Wallace – known for his theory of evolution by natural selection.

This fascinating voyage will see guests island hop through Indonesia’s tropical archipelago searching for Birds of Paradise, mysterious caves with ancient rock paintings and endless secluded coves teaming with corals and colourful fish. Listen as the sulphur-crested cockatoo flies amongst luscious green landscapes and swim with the other-worldly, rare stingless jellyfish in a forest pool of evolution.
