The Cabins

The RFC offers 5 spacious and cosy cabins for up to 11 guest.

2 bunk bed cabins on main level

Our boat offers 2 shared bathrooms with European style toilets and a monsoon shower. We will provide a towel and bathroom amenities for your trip.


We decided against offering AC because we would like to be as environmentally friendly as we can. All our cabins have windows, a door and oscillating fans and this is usually enough for a good night sleep on a boat. Using AC would mean you would have to run a bigger generator which creates more fumes, more noise and consumes even more fossil fuel.

THE Layout


Our indonesian crew is very experienced and will do their best to make your holidays as comfortable and awesome as they can.

On our adventure trips we have a cruise director on board who will organize all the daily activities like snorkeling or land excursions according to the guest wishes.

When it comes to surfing you will be dropped off directly in the lineup. Our crew will keep an eye on you and pick you up as soon as you want to get out of the water. We love to spoil our guests, especially when it comes to our mouth-watering dishes whipped up by our expert cook, who can also prepare excellent vegetarian food.
