In Sanskrit, the Indian Ocean is called Ratnakara – the mine of gems. Vast and deep, it is truly a repository of gem, strings, archipelagos and atolls of islands with white sandy beaches and brilliant blue waters that are postcard perfect. Headlining this area of the world’s oceans is The Maldives, but stunning as they are, there are other jewels to be found dotting the waters of Ratnakara. We sail beyond, to the land of the Dodo bird and the Spice Island of East Africa, to discover the siren call of the Indian Ocean.
