North Komodo National Park 6 days / 5 nights Diving safari on a Schooner

Itinerary:


mt_ignoreOn day one upon arrival at Labuanbajo airport (located at the western tip of Flores), we purchase our ‘conservation’ tag to enter the Komodo National Park. After we settle in on board the Schooner, we   depart to Sebayor Island, less than two hours from the mainland. After embarkation, there will first be a general ships’ briefing to familiarize you with the vessel and our safety and emergency procedures. We do a test dive to check our equipment, make adjustments to the weights and get to know each other. We spend the night at the mooring and do our first night dive. We do two dives this day.

On day two we sail to Gili Lawa Laut. This small island located in the north of Komodo, offers beautiful landscapes and some of the prettiest dive sites in the Park. This area offers classic reef dives, sea-mounts and exciting channels. Here we do three dives including 'Crystal Rock', famous for its spectacular scenery where the turn of every corner brings a new surprise – be it a school of fish, stunning corals or even the occasional shark. In late afternoon our staff will take you to an amazing spot on the hill to enjoy the sunset over the Park. We do 4 dives this day.

On day three we plan an early morning dive at Castle Rock. With its tip just six meters below sea level, this spectacular sea-mount is regarded as probably the best shark site in the park. Sometimes we see dolphins on patrol, rainbow runners, schools of jacks, and eagle rays hovering in the clear blue waters. We plan to dive  here four times, including a night dive. We do 4 dives this day. 

mt_ignoreOn day four we hoists anchor and moves to the island of Tatawa. Our first dive will be a drift dive on a beautiful reef where we can expect to spot turtles as well as humphead parrot fish. Our second dive will be on Batu Bolong which is considered one of the best sites in the Park. The marine life around this small pinnacle is nothing short of  breath-taking with plenty of fish action including sharks, giant trevallies, tuna and napoleon wrasse.
The expansive reef of Karang Makasar, is one of the best places to spot manta rays in the national park; divers have rarely been disappointed. We will also try to spot some black-tip reef sharks which often patrol between the coral bommies. We will do our last day dive here. In late afternoon,the Schooner sails a south-easterly course towards the northern tip of Rinca island. After the captain anchors, we plan to do an exciting night dive. We do 4 dives this day.



Komodo dragon walkingOn day five we do our last dive after breakfast on the island of Tengah Kecil. This is a sloping reef which has colorful hard and soft coral growth, abundant sponges and fish life. Along the top of the reef, hard corals provide homes for huge clouds of schooling anthias and fusiliers.
After lunch, we will go ashore and take a short hike inland on Rinca Island to spot the famous Komodo Dragons. Once we are back aboard,the Schooner sails a short distance to an anchorage just north of the westernmost tip of the island. Afterward we will go ashore and take a short hike to the nearby village and meet the local people. We hope to hear of their adventures at sea and of their secrets of life and death. We will spend the night at anchor. We do 2 dives this day.

On day six you will wake up in the harbor of Labuanbajo on the  Flores mainland. After breakfast, we say farewell to the captain and crew and transfer you to the airport for the return flight to Bali or to any other destination.

Several outstanding sites  are located in southern Rinca`s horse-shoe bay, among them 'Larry`s Yellow Wall of Texas' which is covered in spectacular soft corals and the world famous 'Cannibal Rock' with its mounds of hard and soft corals swarmed by a myriad of invertebrates and fish.

On day four we hoist the anchor very early so we can explore the splendid dive sites of the southern tip of Komodo island.

”German Flag” and” End of the world” are dive sites bursting with life.mt_ignore The presence of the waters from the Sape Strait between Komodo and Sumbawa islands allow the opportunity to spot bigger fish including pelagic s.
