This exciting 14-day voyage will take us along the eastern seaboard of Sulawesi and across the Flores Sea to the Komodo National Park, where we will encounter many of Indonesia's iconic highlights among its huge diversity of cultures, landscapes and wildlife. 

Cruising from the North Sulawesi port of Bitung and heading south to finish in Flores, we will explore the many islands and atolls of this spectacular region, with the opportunity to visit remote villages and cultures, go trekking and birdwatching, see conservation work in action with local NGOs, do ample snorkelling on coral reefs, swim with manta rays and swarms of stingless freshwater jellyfish, see rare and fascinating endemic maleo birds and colonies of nesting seabirds, and also encounter the fearsome Komodo dragons in their natural island habitat. 

There will also be ample time for swimming, kayaking, and stand-up paddle-boarding, as well as we enjoy the pleasure of cruising across the tropical seas on our splendid traditional pinisi ships, Katharina and Ombak Putih. 

Note: The price of this cruise does not include any domestic airfares to and from our start and end points, however, our reservations specialists in Bali are more than happy to help arrange domestic flights on your behalf and advise on scheduling. We book hundreds of flights each year on behalf of our guests and we know the best routes to take to ensure you arrive on time. We only book with IATA-approved airlines that have met with international standards of safety and dependability. Except for Bali, transfers to and from local airports to the boat are also included. If you are booking flights by yourself, do not book any flights before checking with us first. Our first and last day programmes rely on strict time scheduling, so please confirm with us to ensure that you arrive and depart at your destination with plenty of time to spare and to avoid disruption to other guests' schedules.
