Itineraries, Diving & other Activities aboard La Galigo

La Galigo offers the Jurassic Komodo and Ultimate Komodo itineraries. These options provide a range of marine life encounters, from shallow coral reefs to deep seamounts. Or, if you’re seeking the remote beauty of West Papua, the Diving Raja Ampat South itinerary is for you, with opportunities to see mantas and sharks up close. La Galigo provides fixed itineraries in Komodo and Raja Ampat. However, they can also accommodate requests to venture into other areas of Indonesia.

Whether you’re interested in snorkeling, scuba diving, birdwatching, free diving, or any other adventure, La Galigo can help you customize your trip. Indonesia’s natural beauty and over 17,000 islands offer endless possibilities for exploration.
