Bali - Komodo - Flores

Ombak Putih Cruises : 7 days Flores - Komodo - Bali

Emerald seas, megalithic cultures, colourful market places and tribal rituals will saturate your senses before and after your encounters with the most formidable of all terrestrial creatures, the Komodo Dragons. You feel you just entered prehistory when standing eye in eye with this last relative of the saurians

The leisure part of your visit of the National Komodo Park includes snorkelling, beach combing and hiking at some of the most beautiful locations Indonesia has to offer. Entering the Flores Highlands you have an opportunity to hike to some remote villages and witness the tedious process of ‘ikat’ weaving, practiced amid unsurpassed scenery of gigantic volcanoes, bamboo forests and intriguingly coloured crater lakes. It is the very best introduction to the soul of Indonesia.


Day 1 Upon arrival in Labuhanbajo we will go to the village of Melo to attend a performance of the so-called ‘whip-dance’, a performance for which the west part of Flores is famous: two men hit each other fiercely with a rattan whip and protected by a rattan shield, accompanied by an orchestra of local instruments. The one who first inflicts a bloody wound on the back of the other wins and is being cheered. Upon return we embark the Ombak Putih. After a few hours of sailing we will stop at the small island of Kelor to swim and snorkel and visit the adjacent island of Kukusan where we meet a settlement of the Bajau people. These 'sea gypsies’ live in houses on stilts over the water. Originally from Sulawesi and formerly fully nomadic, living on their boats, nowadays the Bajau often occupy more permanent settlements.

Day 2 You will visit the ranger station of Loh Buaya on Rinca Island for a first possible encounter with the famous Komodo dragons. This dry and rugged island is well-known for its diverse wildlife. Apart fromdragons, we may spot monkeys, wild buffaloes and deer. From the top of the hills, the scenery is spectacular. In the afternoon we go to one of the beaches nearby for some excellent snorkelling and in the evening our crew will prepare an evening beach barbecue and enjoy a star studded night sky.

Day 3 We will go ashore at the ranger station in Loh Liang on the island that has given the Komodo dragon as well as the National Park its name. Accompanied by a ranger, we will hike for about 2 hours on this dry island that is covered by savannah and forest. The ranger shows us the dens and nests of the dragons and we learn a lot about this mysterious creature. In the afternoon we go to one of the beaches nearby for some spectacular snorkelling. The National Park is world-known for its teeming underwater world. The plankton-rich seas around Komodo support amazing reefs and a range of large marine life, including whales and dolphins. Later in the afternoon we will make a stop at Gili Lawa Darat. The brave make it to the top of this island that offers one of the best views of the Komodo archipelago.

Day 4 In the morning we have our breakfast off the beach of Gili Banta, uninhabited and perfect for some excellent swimming and snorkelling. When we had our daily portion of underwater marvels, we will proceed to the east coast of Sumbawa to visit the village of Wera. Wera is a Buginese settlement famous for its boatbuilding. Here we will see all kinds of craft in various stages of construction, much the way the Katharina was built in 1998. We will stroll through the village and make a chat with the friendly local people. If weather would prohibit a safe landing, we sail to Sangean island, an active volcano towering 1800 meters above the surrounding waters. We will meet the people of the tiny settlement on the island and make a short hike testing the steepness of the volcano. Night sailing headed west.

Day 5 We set foot on land at the little known island of Satonda with its stunning crater lake and beautiful coral gardens. Located just a couple of miles off the north-west coast of Sumbawa, Satonda is what remained of an extinct volcano of which the caldera was filled with water when nearby Mount Tambora erupted in 1815. It was the biggest volcanic eruption in the collective memory of mankind, much larger than Krakatoa. With an estimated volume of 160 cubic kilometres of rocks and ash ejected from the volcano the following year became known as the "year without a summer" because of the effect on North American and European weather. A highlight of our visit to Satonda is the sight of many thousands of flying foxes that commute at dusk from the island to feed on the mainland, returning before first light the next day. From Satonda we sail to the island of Moyo. Here we will land on the west coast of the island and make a short jungle walk to a local waterfall. We will plunge in the pool at the bottom and sense the chill of the sweet water. Night sailing to east Lombok.

Day 6 Docked in Labuhan Lombok, east Lombok, we will board after breakfast a local coach for a tour into the interior of east Lombok, untouched by the crowds frequenting the west part of the island (Senggigi, Gili’s). We will visit a pottery village, attend a local dance performance and enjoy a real Sasak (indigenous people of Lombok) lunch on the way. After re-embarkation we move to the small island of Kondo, where we will visit a coral conservation project and have a refreshing swim and will snorkel inspecting the local reef. Long night sail to the southwest coast of Lombok Island.

Day 7 The last day on board the Ombak Putih starts with a relaxing morning on a desert beach at Gili Nanggu (just off the coast of southwest Lombok). While snorkelling, local fish will eat rice out of our hands. Unperturbed by the crowds on Kuta Beach, 70 km from here as the crow flies. Around lunch time we will depart for the four hour sail back to Bali. In Serangan (Turtle Island), east Bali, we will disembark in front of the Dolphinarium and say goodbye to the crew of the Ombak Putih and be headed for our next destination.
