Cruise Director Speaking...

Labuan Bajo the capital of Flores Island is the starting point of the cruises and anchorage of our boat.

The first dive sites are about 1,5 hour of sailing from Labuan Bajo. All sites are located in such way that every day we dive in a small area. It allows us to avoid long sailing during a day and makes it possible to spend time before and after the dives on additional activities like trekking in Komodo National Park, relaxing on the white sandy beaches, fishing and many more. For the nights we will anchor in quiet bays.

Depending on interests we stop in islands of Rinca or Komodo and organize trekking in order to see the famous Komodo Dragons and other attractions.

There are strong currents are characteristics for Komodo National Park. They can be sometimes over 8 nods.

The sea temperature depends on the place in the park: in the North ranges from 25 to 29 C and in the South from 22 to 28 C.

Usually there is a good visibility, it can reach 30m. Sometimes there's a low visibility caused by a high amount of plankton. In compensation for this there is an extraordinary wealth and variety of marine life because plankton is food which attracts numerous groups of animals which are later food for another animals.
