We flew into Labuan Bajo where the crew picked us up, then set off for Komodo National Park, anchoring at North Rindja. In the morning we sailed to Komodo, went ashore and walked with the awesome dragons. Being close to these reptiles you really do feel like you've gone back in time. Next we hiked to a look-out point to appreciate the stunning landscape of this country. After snorkelling and diving - the yacht has its own PADI dive instructor - we spent 25 minutes walking up Gili Darat for a breathtaking sunset looking over the bay.
Then after diving with mantas – incredible – we played with all the watertoys and had some quality beach time before relaxing on the foredeck as we sailed for Satonda, passing a smoking volcano at sunset! Early next morning we landed on Satonda and hiked up to the rim of the volcano’s crater to see the amazing salt water lake filling the caldera. After hiking down, we sailed for Bali.
