We think we’ve come up with the ultimate diving adventure with our Alor & Komodo dive safari. This tour combines amazing reefs with turtles, rays, and larger pelagics like manta rays, sharks, and sunfish. Alor and Komodo are arguably two of Indonesia’s premier diving destinations.
At our first stop in Alor you will be blown away by the sheer beauty of the marine life and reefscapes just beneath the surface. Not only are the reef in pristine condition, but the variety of marine life you can see is unparalleled. Large schools of fish are prevalent and with a bit of luck you can find yourself swimming next to incredibly rare species like the pelagic thresher shark or massive ocean sunfish. Also is also famous for its critters like rhynopias, nudibranchs, frogfish, and sea horses! There is also the possibility of coming across a couple of the ocean’s most iconic inhabitants, such as a superpod of dolphins and melon head whales, and even blue whales as we move from site to site.
Here in Alor you will be based in the secluded resort called Alami Alor, where you will have exclusive access to their house reefs and embark on dive excursions multiple times a day.
For the second leg of the trip we move over to Komodo National Park where we will stay with Komodo Resort. This resort is situated on its own private island complete with hiking trails, a spa, gym, decadent meals, and an outstanding house reef. Better yet, the resort is on the doorsteps to the national park boundary where we will encounter turtles, reef sharks, cephalopods, and almost certainly giant manta rays! Oh yes, and the famous Komodo Dragons!
