Private Cruises with Children on El Aleph, Indonesia

Planning your family holiday is an exciting process but it’s not always easy finding a destination and accommodation which is suitable for everyone. Are you thinking about a luxury private cruise? Imagine sailing around castaway, tropical islands and exploring some of the world’s most remote yet stunning coral reefs; discovering age old cultures, pristine white sand beaches and some of the world’s most unique terrestrial and marine species. The Indonesian Archipelago is one that promises adventure and a voyage of discovery, but is it suitable for your little ones? Yes!

A private luxury charter on board El Aleph guarantees you private family time while exploring one of if the most incredible regions on the planet – and yes, it’s totally suitable for children.

When you charter El Aleph you’re not signing up to a specific schedule or itinerary because you choose your own. Decide where you want to go and what you want to see and we’ll make it happen. Once we know the number of people in your group and the ages of those onboard we’ll make sure that El Aleph caters to all members of your group regardless of age.

Children will fall in love with the idea of exploring unchartered waters on board a real life pirate ship and they certainly won’t be bored while doing so! Watch whales breaching together from the bow of the ship, snorkel together over kaleidoscopic reefs, enjoy a beach barbeque under the stars on an uninhabited island or meet the friendly local children and see how they play carefree in the wave breaks.

A private charter gives you the opportunity to anchor up wherever and whenever you want; to step on shore or to dive in to the crystal clear waters and explore, play, discover and have fun as a family.

If the children in your group are natural water-babies there is no shortage of activities for them to enjoy – El Aleph carries water ski’s, a wake board, a banana boat, scuba diving and snorkeling equipment, sea kayaks and stand up paddle boards which mean whenever you want to get in, or under the water, you can. The paddles boards and sea kayaks are a great way to explore mangrove forests together – paddle through the natural mangrove river channels while counting the bird species you see along the way.

If you are an active family who like to explore you’ll find world class trekking which takes you through primary rainforest, to the top of island peaks with incredible vistas, through local villages and you can even trek around an entire island. Why not end the day with a dinner of the day’s fresh catch while watching the sunset over the horizon?
