Go ashore to explore the black sand beach and lush jungle that rises up to the volcano. Cruise to Legon Cabe, Big Krakatau, and snorkel in the dazzling reefs that surround the island. The following day spend time on deck with the team of naturalists, listen to compelling presentations in the lounge, or enjoy one of the many onboard amenities as we travel down the coast of Java.
