Discovering the remote holds timeless appeal for families and friends seeking an adventure to embark on together and remember forever. Launched in 2020, Meridian Adventure SAIL is a private members club which arranges meaningful, exclusive voyages on some of the world’s most spectacular stretches of ocean.
One such remote destination is Raja Ampat in Indonesia, the richest marine habitat in the world and the current base of the Meridian Adventure SAIL fleet. Extending across the Equator at the meeting point of the Pacific and Indian oceans, the blend of currents has resulted in incredible biodiversity, with 75 percent of the world’s coral species and more than 3,000 fish species to be found here. Majestically named the ‘Four Kings’, its crystal-clear waters are perfect for diving and snorkelling, opening up the riches of these underwater worlds to human eyes.
Most conveniently reached by private jet directly into Sorong, the gateway to Raja Ampat, guests are met on arrival and escorted to their private fleet of sleek 62’ catamarans for the ultimate in ocean adventure. Up to 32 guests may be hosted, accompanied by 24 crew - trained at Meridian’s own sailing academy for a minimum of 21 months; this highly qualified team is on-hand throughout the voyage when operating as the full fleet.
The itinerary is designed to encompass the beauty of the destination both above and below the waters, sailing the maze of thousands of islands to head deep into the archipelago’s interior. The all-inclusive operation means guests may immerse themselves in all the adventure has to offer, from diving with qualified dive masters using top-specification equipment and custom Gemini-dive boats, to Seabobs, kayaking and even illuminated night-time paddle boarding. Guests of all ages may enjoy the opportunity to learn how to sail with their crew, venture on guided treks or simply relax on a deserted white-sand beach in complete privacy.
