Tiger Blue

TIGER BLUE INDONESIA; A UNIQUE CONCEPT IN LIVEABOARD TOURISM.

The Tiger Blue Indonesia concept comprises so much more than the average liveaboard. Of course, we provide excellent diving, but our trips are equally enjoyable for families, kids, nature lovers, and water sporting enthusiasts.

We offer the ideal opportunity to spend time together, enjoying all the wonderful Indonesian archipelago delights.

After breakfast, go diving or snorkeling, or visit small islands to explore local nature and culture. After lunch, water ski, wakeboard, fish, dive, hike, or relax till dinnertime.

At sunset, you can sip cocktails, enjoy bonfires on the beach, stargaze under clear skies, or get back in the water for a night-dive.

After a full day, it’s time to retire to your private quarters. MSY Tiger Blue is a 34-meter luxury traditional phinisi that can be booked on an individual cabin basis or as a private charter ideal for groups of friends.

Tiger Blue offers three core itineraries to Komodo national park, the Banda Sea, and Raja Ampat.

Komodo (CHARTER ONLY)
Arrival: 06 May 2021
Departure: 10 May 2021
Days/nights: 5 Days / 4 Nights
Komodo (CHARTER ONLY)

This is a sample itinerary. Route and trip dates may be altered if approved by the vessel’s captain. Enquire to discuss your perfect charter.

Komodo National Park is located within the Lesser Sunda Islands and consists of the three large islands of Komodo, Padar, Rinca, and 26 smaller ones. The Komodo Islands are now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Accessible only by boat, they offer unparalleled views and easy hikes on grassy islands that are home to the world’s largest lizard – the Komodo Dragon. Guests can enjoy world-class diving and snorkeling in warm turquoise waters abundant with marine life as well as secluded white sandy beaches.

DAY 1 – LABUAN BAJO – Tiger Blue will be moored 20 minutes from the airport, making your transfer by car and tender an easy journey. Sail to Sabayor Kecil, keeping an eye out for dolphins, which loves swimming alongside the bow. Dive or snorkel around the coral reef, full of colorful fish, sponges, Napolean wrasse, groupers, and the odd stingray. Or enjoy the water from above, kayaking, waterskiing, kneeboarding, or fishing. Later, relax on board with a good book or film before a leisurely supper.

DAY 2 – RINCA & MANTA POINT – Early morning sail to Rinca. After a light breakfast, take the tender to the shore to see the famous Komodo Dragons. Accompanied by a park ranger, explore the giant lizard’s habitat on foot and learn about its hunting habits. The island is home to about 2,500 dragons and monkeys, Sunda deer, wild pigs, and jungle fowl, so there is plenty to see on the trail. Rejoin the boat and enjoy lunch while sailing for a couple of hours to Karang Makassar. Stop by Manta Point, a feeding ground for manta rays and one of the park’s top diving and snorkeling spots. On this relaxed drift dive, watch the mantas gliding gracefully through the water with their mouths open, feeding on plankton. Enjoy a second dive at Batu Balong, a massive underwater rock with pinnacles and rifts surrounded by grey reef and white tip sharks, giant trevallies, and emperor fish. The coral garden on its top can also be enjoyed by snorkellers, who have a good chance of seeing the larger fish. In the late afternoon, relax on a quiet sandy beach or hike up the grassy hill behind panoramic views across the islands. Then settle into the comfortable bean bags on the beach while the crew mix you up a cocktail and build a giant bonfire before heading back to the boat for a hearty supper.

DAY 3 – MAUAN & KODE – Mauan & Kode’s superb reef is teeming with turtles and can be appreciated by divers and snorkellers alike. Mauan harbors a sporadic manta ray cleaning station, where the animals congregate to have cleaner fish remove parasites and other organisms from their skin. Guests may prefer to explore by kayak, relax on the deck or a deserted beach, or try their hand at wakeboarding. In the evening, ask the crew to make up the day beds with blankets and fall asleep under the stars. Overnight in Padar.

DAY 4 – BBQ & SUNSET COCKTAILS ON A SECRET BEACH – Spend a lazy or an active day, as your mood dictates. A climb up Padar’s verdant slopes will yield spectacular views across the park landscape and the island’s four bays, fringed with grey or white sand. Resident wildlife includes sea eagles, deer, and goats. Successful anglers will be rewarded with melt-in-the-mouth sashimi or ceviche prepared by the chef. Under the water, Pillarsteen has four large pinnacles covered in soft corals, as well as canyons, caves, swim-throughs, and chimneys. Watch out for the brightly colored red and purple fire urchins. As the sun begins to disappear over the horizon, catch the tender to a secret beach for refreshing cocktails and a BBQ. Overnight in Padar.

DAY 5 – LABUAN BAJO – After breakfast, pack and prepare to disembark, returning to the airport by tender and car

Marine Life: Bumphead parrotfish, bamboo sharks, marble rays, nudibranchs, dusky sharks, jawfish, bubble coral shrimps, leaf fish, porcelain crabs, pygmy seahorses, schools of barracudas, trevally, and mackerel, white tips, black tips, grey reef sharks, turtles, octopus, frogfish, manta rays, dugong, banded pipefishes, mandarin fishes, Wonderpus, Indian Walkman.
