Your Host-Yessi Maya Sari

Yessi was born in a mountain town in South Sumatra, Indonesia and educated under a full scholarship at the School of Economics, University of Indonesia.

After graduating with a CPA degree, she was recruited by Johnson and Johnson. She transitioned into a marketing role working for Unilever and L’Oreal. She decided to change course and follow her passion, traveling the world from The Himalayas to Raja Ampat.

Yessi came to realize that the ultimate travel destination was at her doorstep, the Coral Triangle within The Indonesian Archipelago. This led her to found Coral Triangle Safaris to facilitate safe and comfortable travel to the richest reefs on earth.

She built Sequoia Yacht which is the newest generation of Indonesian classic wooden yachts available for charter in Indonesian waters. She will also be on board Sequoia as the Cruise Director to ensure that the customer experiences the safest and most enjoyable cruise possible.

What are our commitments?

Develop Local Talent

Indonesia is a land of incredible cultural diversity with over 300 tribes speaking 700 living languages. We celebrate the beauty of our diverse population just as much as our natural resources both above and below the water.

We employ an all-Indonesian staff and ensure fair prices and wages to our people, community and trade partners whom the central to everything we do. All of our staff is encouraged to scuba dive and snorkel so they can appreciate the beauty of their seas.

Enrich Our Ocean and Coastal Ecosystem

We are environmentally conscious and make sure that our carbon footprint is minimized. As we explore this fragile environment, we are responsible in making sure it lasts.

We have selectively sourced our products with this in mind. From low-emission engines to palm oil free products we aim to a practice of “no one time use” of plastic such as straws, plastic bottle water, and other plastic garbage onboard of Sequoia. This is done to reduce the devastating impact of global warning and plastic trash that is threatening our oceans.
