6 day Dragons & Islands Cruise

Monday: On arrival in Bima, on Sumbawa Island, you are met and transferred directly to the MSY Perintis in Sape Port via a beautiful drive over the mountains, with spectacular views and glimpses of village life, taking about 90 minutes. Once onboard you cruise across the Sape Straits, through the afternoon and later, the setting sun, to the island of Komodo anchoring in the tranquility of a beautiful bay.

Tuesday: Early the next morning, you go ashore and rangers of the local National Park Service will guide you to a safe vantage point to view the Varanus Komodoenisi, the so-called “Komodo Dragon”. It is the largest and fiercest monitor lizard on earth, a close relative to the extinct dinosaur. After this breathtaking encounter with the Jurassic era, you rejoin Perintis to cruise to a secluded island to swim, snorkel or simply beachcomb. You then sail late into the afternoon to the fabled island of Flores for your overnight anchorage in Labuan Bajo Bay.

Wednesday: This morning you go ashore to visit the Batu Cermin (Mirror Rock) Caves, followed by a Bullwhip Dance performance in a nearby local village. When returning to the Perintis, there are usually stops at the local markets to enable you to make purchases of the various clothes and artifacts on display. Once back on board, the skipper will search for another deserted island for water and beach activities and as the sun is setting, you will cruise to Rinca Island where you will anchor overnight in a sheltered inlet.

Thursday: This morning you will, again, go ashore to meet local park rangers who will escort you on a gentle walk along a ridge. With the Perintis lying at anchor in the bay below, the surrounding islands are viewed in this 360 degree panorama and you will also experience herds of barking deer, water buffalo, wild boar monkeys and, of course, the Komodo Dragons. On returning to the Perintis, the skipper will spend the rest of the day finding coral reefs and beaches for you to, again, swim, snorkel or simply relax. During the late afternoon and early evening you will cruise to a sheltered bay, maybe on North Komodo or Banta Island.

Friday: Today is a day of indulging in your favourite leisurely pastime, be it swimming, snorkelling, beachcombing or just lazing around relaxing and reading. The skipper will wind his way through the many atolls, reefs and islands, stopping at will to enjoy this last full day on board. During the late evening you will cruise back to Sape Port, arriving amongst the fishing boats leaving for their night’s work on the ocean.

Saturday: This morning you will breakfast on deck, watching the returning fishing boats. You will then be transferred back to the airport for your flight back to Bali.
