Indonesia Equatorial Region

This massive region from the 3rd parallel south to the 5th parallel north encompasses some of the most fascinating cruising grounds on the planet. Running west from Chandrawassy Bay on north Papua, the Indonesian equatorial region includes the incredible Raja Ampat group, the stark island of Halmahera and northern Sulawasi.

As with all equatorial regions, the weather is hot and mostly wet with plenty of dry calm and windless doldrums days too.
