Itinerary For A Sailing To Komodo Island Tour
The boat will travel to the island of Sebayur Besar, offering a spectacular sailing experience. The Komodo National Park’s island of Sebayur Besar is renowned for having some of the most spectacular panoramic sunsets. The best place to see one is from the summit of the island.
Sebayur Island is a stunning dive location, situated close to Labuan Bajo. A valley with a depth of 30 to 40 meters is created by a coral reef that extends southwest from the island. Depending on the current, we can dive down this cliff either east or west. Giant Travellies, white point reef sharks, and other enormous fish are frequently spotted at many lookouts that are protected by boulders. Although the current is fairly strong in this area, it is a great opportunity to capture photographic evidence with a closeup or wide angle lens.
Siaba Besar – Gili Lawa Darat
The boat will sail from Sebayur Besar to Siaba Besar, where it will dock in front of the island known as “Turtle City”. Where thousands of green turtles can be seen resting on the submerged hill.
The shallow reef’s clear waters make this a pleasant and fun snorkeling adventure for anyone. If we’re lucky, we might see a barracuda swimming nearby. We’ll then head back to the boat for lunch on the deck as we cruise to the stunning bay of Gili Lawa Darat. Before the sun sets, we’ll make the short climb to the top of the hill for another expansive view of the harbor and the breathtaking surroundings.
Makassar Reef – Padar
Travel to Makassar Reef, also known as Manta Point, where your chances of swimming with the beautiful Manta rays are greatest. Between the islands of Komodo and Tatawa Besar is a long, shallow reef known as Makassar Reef. Thanks to the current passing through it, plankton-rich waters are carried through, providing the Mantas with the ideal meal.
We will set sail in the late afternoon for the stunning and uninhabited Padar Island, which is situated between Rinca and Komodo. This is a place where trekking is advised because it offers a picture-perfect view of the most breathtaking landscape. Before going back to the boat, we’ll have time to savor a spectacular sunset.
The majority of the day will be spent investigating the part of the volcano that juts into the Indian Ocean and the little passageway that separates it. The legendary Komodo dragon resides in this region. Here, the lizards are the most combative. Where we will go on the island for a few hours in search of Komodo dragons
