Adrenaline junkies won’t be stuck for a thrill, with diving, surfing, paragliding and kitesurfing all on offer. Get back to nature with a visit to the nearby mangrove forest or the Serangan Island Turtle Conservation and Education Centre. Then watch the sun set over Sanur Beach before sampling local flavours at the night market
Your leader will show you around Tenganan Village, where you can learn about Balinese culture, as well as the royal water palace at Tirta Gangga, which boasts pretty fountains and beautiful tropical gardens. Later, head to the coast and your hotel for the night, where you’ve just got time for a dip in the pool or a snorkelling session. Join the rest of your group for a Balinese-style welcome dinner.
You’ll set straight off for a snorkel on the local reefs before the captain raises the anchor and you’ll sail east across the Lombok Strait to Sumbawa. Enjoy lunch on board, relax on deck and settle into life on the ocean. In the evening, sunset drinks will be served on the ship’s back deck.
You’ll have some time here to snorkel, paddle board and swim, or simply laze on the soft sandy beaches. After lunch sail on to Bungin Island, famous for its stilt houses, balancing above the water. Visit the second largest Bajau settlement in Indonesia and lean how the people here live entirely off the sea. Later on, set sail for Moyo Island.
Later, stop at Satonda, a volcanic island whose crater lake is full of saltwater from a tsunami in 1815. Walk to the rim of the caldera to see the lake, and spend the afternoon snorkelling among the corals. In the evening, watch the flying foxes fill the night sky.
Visit a small village, and see the buffaloes swimming in the sea. Watch the local boat builders, who built the vessel you’re sleeping on, in action, and snorkel the nearby reef to admire the colourful corals. Later, sail on to the island of Banta, where you’ll find a gorgeous white sand beach and plenty of snorkelling, swimming and hill climbing opportunities, the set sail for Komodo.
Here, the ranger will take you in search of the famous Komodo dragon, a giant lizard. You might also see deer, wild boar, cockatoos, butterflies, orchids and jungle chickens along the way. Back on board your boat, sail around the coast to Komodo Village, where you can pick up some souvenirs, and Pantai Merah, a red sand beach. Later, snorkel with manta rays at Makassar Reef and watch the sunset at Gili Lawa Darat.
You may also see monkeys, deer and buffaloes here. In the afternoon, snorkel off the coast of Siaba Island, and perhaps drop by Kelor Island too. In the evening, head to shore at an uninhabited island for a beach barbecue with the rest of your group. There’s usually plenty of singing and dancing from the crew too!
There’s just time for a last swimming or snorkelling session before cruising back to Labuan Bajo harbour, where you’ll visit Melo village to watch a traditional Caci, a fight with whips and shields set to music. After lunch on the boat, transfer to your Labuan Bajo hotel on the island of Flores. You’ll have two days here, so spend your time diving, snorkelling, and exploring the beaches and caves. If you like, in the evening, head to Kalong Island to see the flying foxes.
