The Phinisi Ship is a legendary wooden ship from South Sulawesi, which is thought to have been made since the 14th century or 1400s. Now, tourists can enjoy the sensation of sailing on the Phinisi Ship in Indonesian waters. Usually tourists sail on the Phinisi Ship in the waters of Labuan Bajo. However, now the Riau Islands, which are the Gateway to Indonesian Maritime Tourism, are offering sailing services on Phinisi boats for the first time while enjoying the stunning water landscape of the Riau Islands. Sailing on the Phinisi ship, you can enjoy the experience of sailing while enjoying the sunset against the backdrop of the Barelang bridge which is the icon of the city of Batam.

 

On January 1, 2024, the Minister of Tourism and Creative Economy, Sandiaga Uno, had the opportunity to enjoy the experience of sailing on the Phinisi Ship in the Riau Islands. According to him, the natural view of the Riau Islands from the boat was very beautiful and the food service was super delicious. Sailing services on the Phinisi Ship are not a new tourism product in Indonesia. However, in Riau Islands waters, this is the first and has become an attraction for local tourists.

 

The Phinisi ship provides a number of facilities ranging from beds, food and much more. You can try the 4 days 3 nights or 3 days 2 nights package. Traveling on the Phinisi ship, you can relax with your family, diving, snorkeling and more.
