We will be visiting the remote province of Nusa Tengarra and the islands of Flores, Komodo and Rinca. Aboard our converted fishing boat, we will sail from the Flores capital of Labuan Bajo to the famed Komodo Dragon. Here we will witness the awesome beast in all is primitive splendor. The Komodo Dragon’s sheer size and power is unbelievable growing more than 3 meters in length and weighing over 150 kg. Although they plod along at a leisurely pace, do not be fooled, when called for, the Dragon can run up to 30 kilometers an hour and strike at lightning speed.
We will spend 3 glorious nights aboard our boat, beneath the stars. We will be visiting uninhabited islands, snorkeling in crystal clear water above pristine coral. We will visit caves and islands packed with flying fox as well as remote communities that live off the sea.
