8 days exploring Komodo National Park by superyacht

Day 1
/8

Arrival at Flores

view arrival Flores Indonesia

Raymond Heer, captain of the 42.5 metre private yacht Angiamo, explores the Indonesian region famous for its fierce giant lizards

While not technically man-eaters — the Komodo dragon prefers a water buffalo, given the choice — these giant lizards have, on occasion, given the undertakers some business. While they remain the region’s main draw, they are by no means the only attraction. You can jump in the water almost anywhere in the park to see an abundance of marine life and there’s a mind-blowing variety to explore.

Day One

Meet your yacht at Labuan Bajo, Flores, before setting sail for the northern side of Komodo. En route you can have an easy afternoon dive or snorkel at Golden Passage, a great drift dive – you’ll see colourful soft corals and plenty of turtles. Dinner will be served to you on board, with Komodo’s rugged cliffs as a backdrop.

Sumbawa Island Indonesia

Sail to Sumbawa, the larger neighbouring island, and head into Wera village to see traditional wooden phinisi sailing boats being built. Afterwards head north to anchor off Pulau Sangeang, a volcanic outcrop, where you can snorkel in hot bubbles coming off the reef — it’s like swimming in a glass of Champagne. Then enjoy real Champagne and canapés as the sun sets.

Dive at Castle Rock

drift diving Castle Rock

Head to the north of Komodo and the famous Castle Rock dive site, one of the best dives in the world. The current here can be strong, so use a reef-hook to anchor yourself and enjoy the parade of schooling trevally jacks, grey reef sharks and clouds of fusiliers. You can stroll on the beach in late afternoon (maintaining a safe distance from any dragons) and then remain anchored in the bay for the night.
