Komodo Ultimate - Sangeang (Labuan Bajo-Labuan Bajo)
Arrival: 05 Jul 2021
Departure: 15 Jul 2021
Days/nights: 11 Days / 10 Nights
Komodo Ultimate - Sangeang (Labuan Bajo-Labuan Bajo)

Itinerary Extras: Komodo National Park & Port fees: 240 €/pax (paid onboard)

Located in the same name’s strait at the confluence of the Indian Ocean and the Banda Sea, The Komodo National Park features one of the world’s richest and most diverse marine environments—thanks to the overflowing currents in the area. Also renowned as the home of the famous Komodo Dragon, it is undoubtedly one of the best scuba diving destinations that you can find on the planet.

In the north, you can find a collection of the world’s most beautiful varieties of reefs, boasting a rich combination of hard and soft corals, shoals of anthias, wrasses, angelfishes, and also predators—reef sharks, tunas, and giant kingfishes. You will see more soft corals with an amazing profusion of colors and even more macro (and manta rays, too!) in the south. The water is rather cold, and the temperature can drop down to 23 ° C in July and August.

Komodo offers a wide variety of dives: pelagic dives with sharks in strong currents, gentle drift dives, wall dives (colorful drop-offs, gigantic boulders, seamounts, pinnacles, and sandy slopes), and macro dives. You can also find manta rays, turtles, and, if you are lucky enough, some whale sharks!
