KOMODO TO RAJA AMPAT

On this 60 day trip we get to go to the two most incredible, world-class dive destinations in Indonesia combined with a lot of great sailing - what more could you want? We explore the wonders of Komodo National Park, with a change of seeing the endemic species Komodo Dragons, dive and swim with multiple Manta Rays at a time and enjoy some good drift dives. 

We will cruise along the coastline of the Wetar Island, cross the Banda Sea and stop off at the remote islands of Banda allowing  you to truly feel like a modern day explorer. These island chains are in some of the most remote areas of Indonesia, showcasing a fantastic blend of untouched marine- and land based ecosystems.

This trip will be ending of in the famously deserted islands of Raja Ampat. With an abundance of marine life, you will be diving alongside 1,350 species of fish, six of the world’s seven marine turtle species, 27 varieties of marine mammal and large populations of both manta ray species. Sailing through such a remote part of the globe truly makes you feel like a modern day explorer!
