A luxurious cruising experience in the most scenic landscapes you can dream of. With a chef onboard and all the equipment you need - from aircond to diving… you will feel privileged.
Well known for being the home of the famous komodo “dragons”, the largest monitor lizard on earth, the waters surrounding the many islands of the komodo national park are also some of the richest in terms of underwater fauna and flora. The constant tidal flow of water from the indian ocean to the flores sea brings endless supply of planktonic food.
Fish life is therefore understandably one of the richest in terms of the sheer variety of reef species, not to mention the occasional pelagic whale, whale shark, mantas etc… being one of the better protected national park in indonesia, the reefs are mostly in pristine condition.
For the non-diver, you will certainly enjoy the cruises, for Sumba and the Komodo National Park have much to offer. Besides the obvious trek through the islands to see the wildlife, there are plenty of remote and totally empty beaches to laze around, a few “Bajo” villages to visit and some spectacular snorkeling that has nothing to envy to the diving sites.
