Just Dreaming is a 50ft cutter-rigged ketch powered by a 98HP Ford diesel which can take up to a maximum of 8 surfers (minimum of 4), surfing the areas around and including Panaitan Island. This boat is the only one in the area so you are sure to pull up to awesome empty waves. This is one of our most popular charters and has been a part of the STC fleet since they started in the area, It is also a favourite amongst the STC staff.
Just Dreaming charters begin in Anyer Harbour located 2 hours drive from Jakarta, from here you will set sail for some of the most insane and uncrowded breaks in Indonesia. The Just Dreaming crew and their new Indo speaking Aussie surf guide, Ollie who is also a Masters 5 skipper, has been hand-picked and personally trained by long term operator John Spicer or Capt. John as he is known in some circles. With John now stepping down and taking more of a back seat after his long stretch in the area, it is comforting to know that the same excellent service and knowledge has been passed on to his predecessor. The Indo captain 'Ismanto' has been in the area of West Java aboard Just Dreaming coming on 18 years and knows the area and the surf conditions like the back of his hand. Captain Ismanto is the person who actually taught John what he knows, so whatever the swell is doing the crew on Just Dreaming will make sure that you experience the best waves in the area at the time of your charter. The West Java area boasts plenty of different types of waves catering to all levels of experience and all styles of surfing. Just Dreaming and her crew specialises in getting you into the best waves available that suit your surfing ability.
Depending on time and where you choose to surf you can also check out Krakatoa, an active volcano located in the vicinity. The area also boasts numerous national parks that remain relatively untouched and visited. You won't see droves of general tourists hanging out at this place! Come and enjoy the relaxing atmosphere of the area aboard Just Dreaming, indulge in numerous water sports and activities and be amazed by the tranquility this place has to offer.

The trip was great, good solid waves, nice people on the boat and some fun in jakarta on the lay over waiting for the plane, most of the crew kept the beers down to three or four a day so surfing was all priority and we scored some great waves. (and some reef scars), thanks for all your help getting it together, nothing missed a beat.
Just a quick note to say the boat trip on just dreaming was fantastic everything from the food to the desire of the captain to find waves which we got heaps of was awesome thanks for the organizing efforts from you and pass on my thanks to the team on just dreaming.
