As a National Park since 1980 and a declared World Heritage site since 1986, Komodo offers great nature both over and under water. The area is known for colorful coral reefs and underwater critters of all sizes. On the Islands of Komodo and Rinca you will also find the worlds largest lizard - the Komodo Dragon.
Komodo National Park Indonesia was established in 1980 and was declared a World Heritage Site and a Man and Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO in 1986. The park was initially established to conserve the unique Komodo dragon (Varanus komodoensis). Since then conservation goals have expanded to protecting its entire biodiversity, both marine and terrestrial.
The Komodo National Park encompasses 1,817 square kilometers of spectacular land and marine wilderness, including the islands of Komodo, Rinca, Padar, and Gili Montagne and their surrounding waters. The signature land attraction on your Indo Aggressor (formerly Komodo Dancer) LiveAboard cruise will be an encounter with the world’s largest lizard - the flesh eating Komodo Dragon.
Many of our guests are avid photographers who like nothing more than hunting out weird and wonderful critters on the reef and sand. As part of the expanded Komodo itinerary we have added two locations to the west of the Komodo National Park – Sangeang Indonesia, an island volcano to the north of East Sumbawa and Bima Bay Indonesia, an inlet that meanders down to Bima town on Sumbawa. There are two specific sites in both of these areas that are producing a dazzling array of rare creepy crawlies on a regular basis – “Estuary” on Sangeang and “Fuzzy Bottom” at the entrance to Bima Bay; click here for the itinerary.
The Indo Aggressor visits dive sites in the Komodo National Park, part of the Lesser Sunda Islands and surrounding islands of Sangeang and Sumbawa. Year round this area of Indonesia offers great diving. Water temperatures can vary greatly within the park ranging from a low of 22C in the south to a high of 29C in the northern region.
The Indo Aggressor aims to return to port on the evening prior to disembarkation. Final disembarkation will occur between 8:00 am – 1:00 pm at the end of the charter. Be sure to remember the suggested 24-hour no fly rule when planning your departure.
You will be transported to the Labuan Bajo Airport for a domestic flight back to Bali.
