sample of our
Day 1: Bali to Moyo
Bali, Island of the Gods. The Gods must have been asleep when they made facilities for superyachts. Changes are afoot and we hope to see more international class facilities in the future both here and further afield.
Nevertheless, we’ll do all the Clearances, fueling, provisions etc here prior to Guest arrival. Once done, we head east to Moyo to standby for guest arrival. Guest arrival into Ngurah Rai airport DPS will be VIP cleared through airport, picked up and delivered to the Charter float plane.
We will depart for an approx 1 hr flight from Bali, over the stunning Rinjani volcano in Lombok (they’ll even circle a time or two to get some photos).
Then onwards to Moyo Island where we will land on the water right next to where the boat is sitting waiting.
Day 2: Moyo & Satonda
This beautiful nature reserve is located off the NW tip of Sumbawa. It provides a great anchorage as well as wonderful snorkeling and land activity.
We can spend half a day in Moyo – snorkeling/diving/beach and use resort facilities (charged for of course) and/or organize land tours to a beautiful waterfall.
We then move to Satonda where we can visit Crater Lake, beach & snorkeling.
In evening we start overnight run to Komodo & in the early morning of Day 3 run past Sangang Volcano & Banta Island.
Day 3: Komodo
Anchor northern bay Komodo.
Spend the morning diving /beach/ snorkeling and, of course, looking at/out for dragons!! After lunch we move to spend the afternoon at the beautiful Pink Beach on E Komodo.
Night Run South Side of Flores to Aimere for Ngada experience.
Day 4: Ngada Tribes – Bajawa and Bena
Once the guests are on shore, we then have a short drive and from there we have various options to visit local villages.
It will be great half to full daytrip and certainly an experience.
I will investigate the possibilities of staying at the village overnight and as many cultural experiences as we can set up here for the guests to enjoy this rich society which has remained pretty much in isolation for centuries.
Assuming we are able to stay overnight, we will do so. The Boat remains at Aimere for our departure on D5.
Day 5: Ngada Villages to South Rinca
After Bena, we proceed South to Nage village.
From Nage we head back to Aimere and cruise back west taking in the stunning and rugged coastline of South Flores. Highlights will be the dramatic Pulau Mules rising out of the ocean.
We will end the day/anchor in the horseshoe bay at the South of Rinca on the inside of Pulau Kode.
Day 7: South Rinca to North Rinca
North Rinca presents a much more natural Komodo dragon viewing experience. Here we get a chance to see them much more in the wild. They can often be seen stalking along the beach or simply sunning themselves on rocks. Either way, an awesome viewing experience.
Overnight Run to Labuan Bajo.
Day 8: Labuan Bajo Departure
Drop guests to Labuan Bajo Airport in the morning.
From here, 2 options:
- Private Jet: We have positioned the private jet to Labuan Bajo (1400m runway). However, we cannot clear the country from here so would have to fly back to Bali, clear out and then proceed home from there.
- Commercial: If the above is unnecessarily costly and difficult, we can fly either commercial or charter from Lab Bajo back to Bali where we meet the private jet or onward International flight.
We hope this overview provides a clearer picture of the options available and the amazing experience that Indonesia offers. We will have some time on arrival to fine tune and run through the itinerary with some charts to get a clear picture.
Our main job as agents in this part of the world is providing logistical and technical support to our clients and as such, we expect to be on call 24/7 and to be very hand-on. Indonesia is a very hands-on environment and most things have to be done face-to-face to gain any kind of favorable result.
This trip is designed to give you a taste of many of the adventures available. The above information maps out the bones of an exciting several week itinerary and we look forward to planning and executing your Indonesian adventures!
