For all of the yachts going through the Mentawai and North Sumatra, snorkeling/free diving and fishing are world class.  Nusa Dewata supplies extensive game fishing equipment and snorkeling gear. The world’s greatest sashimi restaurant is right there under the boat and along the edge of the reef. Quality of fish goes down with every hour it’s out of the water, and once you have eaten fresh-speared or line-caught yellowfin, dogtooth tuna, mahi mahi or swordfish you might never buy fish from Ralph’s again.

The sturdy tender can be used for exploratory missions on land. Some of the coves and bays you will be anchored in are empty, some have native villages, and some have luxury resorts. All are worth a look.

Napping and drinking are also very popular.
