Dive Komodo N.P.
Located between the Islands of Sumbawa and Flores, the National Park is surrounded by two seas, the Sea of Flores (Pacific Ocean) and Sumba (Indian Ocean). The Park was created in 1981 to ensure the protection of the Komodo Dragons but also to preserve the pristine reefs of the area. To get more informations about the Park, please click here.
The cruise starts in Labuan Bajo, on Flores Island and we sail to Komodo Island via Rinca and return to Labuan Bajo.
Ports of call will allow you in particular to encounter the infamous Komodo Dragons or to visit the spectacular Red Beach named by the small fragments of dead red coral coloring the sand and other islands to look at flying foxes bats or to relax and enjoy the lunar landscapes.
