Few areas in Asia can match the cultural and natural diversity as can be found following the chain of the Lesser Sunda Islands: towering active volcanoes, jungle clad mountain ranges, alternated by dry savannah lowlands, both teeming with wildlife… quiet coastal villages, emerald seas, megalithic cultures, colorful market places, tribal rituals and in addition a world of kaleidoscopic beauty under water.
Tour Itinerary:    

Day 1: On day 1 embarkation in Labuhanbajo on the Western tip of Flores. After a few hours of sailing we will make our first stop at the small island of Mesa where we visit a settlement of the Bajau people. These 'sea gypsies’ live in houses on stilts over the water.  Originally from Sulawesi and formerly fully nomadic, living on their boats, nowadays the Bajau often occupy more permanent settlements.
Day 2: On day 2 you will visit the ranger station of Loh Buaya on Rinca Island for a first possible encounter with the famous Komodo dragons. This dry and rugged island is well-known for its diverse wildlife. Apart from dragons, we may spot monkeys, wild buffaloes and deer. From the top of the hills, the scenery is spectacular. In the afternoon we go to one of the beaches nearby for some excellent snorkeling and in the evening our crew will prepare an evening beach barbecue and enjoy a star studded night sky.

Day 3: On day 3 you will go ashore at the ranger station in Loh Liang on the island that has given the Komodo dragon as well as the National Park its name. Accompanied by a ranger, we will hike for about 2 hours on this dry island that is covered by steppe and forest. The ranger shows us the dens and nests of the dragons and we learn a lot about this mysterious creature.

Day 4: On day 4 you will wake up in the little harbor of Bima on the island of Sumbawa where you will visit the local market and a village in the nearby highlands where the inhabitants will demonstrate some traditional dances. Most famous is the ‘adu kepala’ : the ritual head-to-head combat…

Day 5: On day 5 we set foot on land at the little known island of Satonda with its stunning crater lake and beautiful coral gardens. Located just a couple of miles off the north-west coast of Sumbawa, Satonda is what remained of an extinct volcano of which the caldera was filled with water when nearby Mount Tambora erupted in 1815. It was the biggest volcanic eruption in the collective memory of mankind, much larger than Krakatoa.

With an estimated volume of 160 cubic kilometers of rocks and ash ejected from the volcano the following year became known as the "year without a summer" because of the effect on North American and European weather. A highlight of our visit to Satonda is the sight of many thousands of flying foxes that commute at dusk from the island to feed on the mainland, returning before first light the next day. Immediately after sunset, Ombak Putih leaves on a course due West.
Day 6: On day 6 we will anchor off East Lombok and go ashore to visit a traditional pottery center, several small villages and to witness a traditional dance performance.

Day 7: On day 7 your last day aboard the Ombak Putih starts with a relaxing morning on a deserted beach at Gili Nanggu (just off the coast of South Lombok). We will leave around lunch time for the four hour sail back to Bali.
