    International flights generally arrive at one of the following airports:  Bali-Denpasar (DPS) ... Jakarta (CGK)  ... Manado (MDC).  We will be pleased to help you book your domestic flights through our Bali agent.

    It is strongly recommended that you arrive one day before your charter date for all of the Raja Amapt Aggressor II itineraries.   (Ask us about recommended hotels).   You will be picked up on the charter start date and transferred to the yacht as long as you are staying near where the yacht docks.   If your flight arrives, however, on the day of the charter, you'll be met at the airport and transferred to a hotel until pick-up time, normally around 12pm.

    Departure time of the boat depends on the itinerary you've chosen and we will provide all details when you book.

    Time to disembark on your return is generally 8am.  You will be transferred to the airport, unless you are remaining for a land program.
