READ MORE

Join us in Indonesia for this incredible 10-night expedition aboard the S/Y Indo Siren, September 1-11, 2017! Diving in Komodo National Park is best done by liveaboard, which allows you to explore the Komodo dive sites to their fullest. Declared a World Heritage Site in 1991, the park and surrounding area boasts one of the world's richest marine environments, with over 260 species of reef building coral, 70 species of sponge, marine worms, mollusks, echinoderm, and crustacea. The area is also home to over 1000 species of fish, marine reptiles, and marine mammals. The waters of the Sunda Sea teem with life from reef sharks and manta rays to bobtail squid and the minute "lady bug” amphipods. Other notable species include pygmy seahorses, frogfish, nudibranchs, Napolean wrasse, trevally jack, and groupers.The diving here is varied from shallow muck dives, sloping reefs and dark volcanic sand, sumberged pinnacles and steep reef walls. Currents can be strong but bring with them all the delights of diving in Indonesia. And of course, we will be onboard to assist you with any imaging needs you may have, including private tutoring and workshops.

 

Itinerary

Just a short flight from Bali, the S/Y Indo Siren's first stop on this 10-night diving adventure is the muck dive spot of the "Unusual Suspects," in Bima Bay. We spend the night here before sailing on to Sangeang Island with its dark volcanic sand or Gili Banta. By the third day we are diving within the Komodo National Park in the areas of Gilli Lawa Laut and Batu Bolong where strong currents can be experienced, bringing with them grey reef and white tip sharks and schools of snappers and fusileers.

 

From there the S/Y Indo Siren will stop at either Rinca or Komodo Islands to make a walk with the Komodo dragons before cruising southwards to Nusa Kode where in the shelter of Horseshoe Bay are numerous dive sites including Cannibal Rock, Torpedo Alley, and Yellow Wall.  Across the strait on the south of Komodo Island we spend the day diving the aptly named Manta Alley before returning northwards once again to dive sites that were not visited during the southward journey. Our final day is spent in Bima Bay, where the calm waters offer the perfect spot for some kayaking or water skiing (sweet!).

International Flight Recommendations

 

We strongly advise that our guests plan to stay in Indonesia one night before and also preferably one night after their cruise. We find that this reduces potential problems created by delays and schedule changes in international flights. It also allows our guests to begin their adventure rested and relaxed.

Siren Fleet maintains working relations with airlines, travel agents, resorts and tour operators within Indonesia and so are well suited to assist with the organization of domestic flights, transfers, excursions and accommodation before and/or after your cruise. Please let me know if you would like me to manage any of these aspects on your behalf.
