Itinerary

Day 1: Embarkation

  • Depending on your pre-cruise arrangements a transfer to port is organised. Embarkation in the port of Serangan, Bali. A general orientation follows.

Day 2: Lombok

  • After an initial general dive briefing, we will do our check dive with you at an easy and protected dive site. Check dive in the sense of you checking your gear and weights, making sure the camera housings are proper sealed and our guides checking your buoyancy. No skill demonstrations are required. We will do three dives in total today at a fantastic sandy critter spot, closed to the famous Gili Islands. Though highly frequented areas, hardly anyone dives our favourite spot here as it is rather far away from these islands. You can expect: Frogfish, Ghostpipefish, Seahorses, Nudibranchs, Wonderpus…

Day 3: Moyo & Satonda

  • In the morning we will do two dives at Moyo. Here you will find yourself at very fishy walls in pristine conditions. The luxury resort Amanwana just around the corner has done excellent conservation work here for more than a decade and you can clearly see the results. A fish soup spiked with Trevallie, Tuna, Sharks. Having Eagle and Manta Rays passing by is not uncommon. In the afternoon we will do a relaxed dive at the island of Satonda. Capped with a land excursion in the afternoon to a beautiful crater lake.

Day 4: Sangeang

  • At the active vulcano of Sangeang you can expect superb black sand critter hunting. But it’s not only the critters like Nudibranchs, Ghostpipefish, Frogfish and Pygmy Seahorses that make the diving here so exciting, but also the stark contrast of colourful Black- and Whipcoral against the black sand. On the dive site ‘Bubble Reef’ you can see and feel the volcanic activity – gas bubble fields as well as hot water springs under water are the highlights here.

Day 5: Banta

  • Just outside the National Park of Komodo this island makes you feel as if you were already inside the park. We will spend the whole day in a great variety of dive sites. ‘Banta Wall’ also known as ‘The Rollercoaster’ is a spectacular wall – however, the timing with the currents and the swell is key to a safe and satisfying dive. And we get our timing right. GPS point is a reef more than half a mile north of Banta. Very fishy with the potential for Grey Reef Sharks and other big boys passing by. Again the timing here is key. One of our favourite spots here is our secret spot which happens to be a Manta cleaning station. For sunset we offer some trekking on a hill which will reward you with an epic view over the bay, the sun setting behind the vulcano of Sangeang. After Dinner we take you on a night dive on a sandy slope, where Stargazers will make an angry face at you.

Day 6: Komodo – The North

  • We arrive in the morning in the northern part of the famous Komodo National Park. And straight away hit the signature dive sites ‘Crystal Rock’ and ‘Castle Rock’. Sharks, Jacks, Fish Soup. Action fuelled by current. In the afternoon and at night two more world-class dives at famous site like ‘The Golden Passage’, ‘The Cauldron’ or ‘Lighthouse’. Komodo National Park diving at it’s best.

Day 7: Komodo Central & Rinca

  • Heading south through the NP we have a wide selection of top dive sites, like ‘Tatawa Besar’, ‘Tatawa Kecil’, ‘Batu Bolong’, ‘Manta Point’. Three excellent day dives based upon conditions and availability. To cap this great day we offer a night dive at Wai Nilu, which ranks within the Top 5 favorite night dive spots allover Indonesia of our Cruise Director.

Day 8: Rinca Trekking – Nusa Kode

  • Trekking with Komodo dragons in the morning before it gets too hot in the sun. Expect to be eye in eye with the last dragons on this planet. A must when coming here. Local rangers take care of our safety. After this adventure we will be heading to the south of Rinca, also known as Nusa Kode or Horseshoe Bay. Some of the lushest diving Komodo National Park has to offer. During the months of May until October however, the waters are quite cold (down to 23°C) and the visibility is rather poor. You will be, however, rewarded with critter galore: Ambon Scorpionfish, Rhinopias, Frogfish, Wonderpus, Coconut Octopus paired with an overwhelming growth of soft and hard coral on the reefs. A very common sight at the beach are Komodo Dragons, Deer, Wild Boar and up in the trees you might spot a sea eagle.

Day 9: Nusa Kode

  • We offer three more day dives in the Horseshoe Bay. Some of our favourite dive sites here include: ‘Cannibal Rock’, ‘The Yellow Wall of Texas’, ‘Devil’s Corner’ and ‘Torpedo Alley’. In the afternoon we will leave this truly spectacular place and head back up north. For a night dive we will pull into the island of Pantar. Starry Night Octopus, Frogfish, rare Nudibranchs – this dive site never disappoints.

Day 10: Komodo Central & North

  • Today we will spend another full day around the heart of Komodo National Park. World class dive sites are plenty and if they are too busy, we have our favourite secret spots as well.

Day 11: Komodo Central

  • Depending on the flight schedule the day after, up to two more dives before lunch, then slowly heading back towards the port of Labuan Bajo. Stopover at a perfect beach in the afternoon.

Day 12: Disembarkation in Labuan Bajo
