7D/6N Amazing Cruise Komodo to Bali

Given the vastness of the Indonesian archipelago it is hard to decide where your adventure should start. So let us suggest that you start by joining us to experience the Komodo National Park’s dramatic landscape where rugged hillsides of dry savannah and pockets of monsoon forests contrast starkly with the brilliant white sandy beaches.

These World Heritage islands are blessed with uninhabited islands, secluded beaches, crystal clear waters, and stunning coral reefs as well as being the only place in the world where there is an opportunity to observe the legendary Komodo Dragon in the wild.

Komodo National Park feels like a destination that has been forgotten by time.

You will fly direct from Bali to Labuan Bajo where you will join Bidadari for your unforgettable adventure.

Itinerary

A truly enlightening adventure steps back in time to a prehistoric age of wonder and beauty, which lies at the heart of the Indonesian archipelago. The islands boast some of the richest marine environments in the world with coral reefs, mangroves, sea grass beds, seamounts and semi-enclosed bays. More than 1,000 species of fish, 260 species of reef-building coral, and 70 species of sponges are found here along with dugong, sharks, manta rays and at least 14 species of whales, not to mention dolphins, and abundant sea turtles. These islands throughout the park offer stunning white beaches and calm bays perfect for snorkeling, diving, and other water sports. These secluded areas are ideal for relaxing during the day, a beach BBQ, under a star filled night sky.
