Departing from Benoa, Bali, Damai II liveaboard will head up the east coast for a check out dive at Padang Bai. From here we will begin our journey east, stopping at Lawang and Satonda for some cool critter dives and the chance to visit a crater lake. We then head over to the volcanic island of Sangeang for macro diving on iconic sites like Bontoh with their Doto Donut and Bubble Reef with its ‘champagne bubbles’ before heading into Komodo National Park and one of the most biodiverse marine protected areas in Indonesia. You will have plenty of opportunity to spot sharks, turtles, schooling fish, mantas and eels on many of these dive sites you have heard about by name: Batu Bolong, Castle Rock, Crystal Rock, Tetawa and Pink Beach. No trip to Komodo is complete without a visit to the beautiful Horseshoe Bay with famous dive sites like Torpedo Alley for a night dive with an amazing array of critters or the seamount of Cannibal Rock with its endemic marine life set against a beautiful reef. The highlight of the trip is always the chance to trek on the islands to see the the endemic Komodo Dragon but you may see other unusual wildlife during these land excursions too. Our liveaboard cruise ends in Labuanbajo where guests can enjoy our complimentary airport transfer.
