Komodo: the land that time forgot. This World Heritage Site has action packed diving, prehistoric Komodo dragons and spectacular scenery. Below will be the draft itinerary when you are onboard of Damai:

Day 1: Arrive in Labuan Bajo

Guests will arrive in Labuanbajo and have time to get comfortable on the boat. After a short journey there will be the opportunity to do a check out dive and a night dive on the sloping reef at Sebolan Kecil in the middle of Komodo National Park.

Day 2: Central Komodo & Wainilu

Back to the middle of the channel to dive the Signature site of Batu Bolong; the 'Rock with the Hole'. This is a beautiful reef dive with plenty of fish, turtles and passing pelagics. Just beside on the current rich Karang Makassar is an excellent drift dive with manta cleaning action.

For a macro afternoon head to the small island of Wainilu on the north coast of Rinca. Diving along the sand slope in front of the beach should prove an excellent opportunity for critter hunting and some unusual nudibranchs.

This is the gateway to enjoy a walk in the park to view the prehistoric Komodo dragon. You may also see monkeys, water buffalo and wild boar or just enjoy the panoramic views over the park.

Day 3: Tatawa & Central Komodo

Into the middle of the channel to dive the Signature site of Batu Bolong; the "Rock with the Hole". One of Komodo's world class signature dives. Immaculate corals, thousands of anthias in the shallows, giant napoleon wrasse, turtles, passing pelagics.

Karang Makassar is an excellent drift dive with manta cleaning action, turtles and sharks.

Day 4: Horseshoe Bay

Horseshoe Bay has a variety of Signature sites; the world famous pinnacle of Cannibal Rock has excellent schooling fish action but certainly plenty of macro to discover; The black sand slope of Torpedo Alley has some interesting macro opportunities especially for the night dive; and Yellow Wall is a vertical wall covered in yellow softcorals and yellow crinoids.

Even the anchorage is exciting with Komodo dragons prowling up and down the beach; wild boars feeding from the shoreline; flying Brahminy Kites and White Bellied Sea Eagles; deer swimming in the sea; monkeys climbing the trees.

No. of Dives:

4

Day 5: Langkoi & Padar

On the southern tip of the island of Komodo the Signature site of Manta Alley has some of the best schooling fish in the south. Although the water may be chilly the potential for manta action is closely followed by sharks, napolean wrasse, humphead parrotfish, sweetlips and turtles.

The island of Padar has the dive site of Pillarsteen with its dramatic seascapes of caves and swim throughs along the vertical wall. The pinnacles at the 3 Sisters rise beautifully from the white sand bottom and are covered in colourful reef fish and the elusive frogfish.

No. of Dives:

Day 6 and 7: Gili Lawa Laut

For some of the best schooling fish action in Komodo we will head to the north of the park and dive on two seamounts called Crystal Rock and Castle Rock. Keep you eyes open for cruising sharks amongst the clouds of schooling fish.

Guests will be escorted to the airport in Labuan Bajo and assisted with check in procedures, no doubt full of talk about the wonders of the most popular dive destination in the world.

DISCLAIMERS

The trip will be weather dependent and there might be long crossing required throughout. We will, try to adjust the best we can to the conditions and fulfil all itinerary briefed when you’re on the boat.

Due to the need to report to the local village, divers will need to be flexible with the start time of the first dive at some of the dive sites. We will ensure that you’re given timely update on this during the trip, however your understanding on last minute changes would be appreciate. This is because divers are only allowed in the water once permission is granted by the local villages and officers.

Damai are flexible to change itinerary suggested based on customer’s preference in the event that weather and time allow us to do so and if changes is agreeable by all participants on board
