Lombok & Gili Islands
The Gili Islands are one of the most demanded Boat Charter destinations in Lombok – however, the islands are quite close together and only suitable for Daytrips such as birthday, Hens and Bachelor parties. The Gili Islands are often departure point for longer routes including other islands in the south of Lombok, Sumbawa and Komodo and are worth integrating for a few days into your travel itinerary.
Komodo National Park
Komodo is the common term used for a primarily volcanic chain of islands in the south east of Indonesia. In fact, this is more accurately made up of three main islands: Komodo Island, Rinca Island, and Padar Island that together with a few other islets form over 2,000 square kilometers of protected national parkland. Dragons and diving are the two main reasons people decide to charter a liveaboard in Komodo.
Situated just off the coast of West Papua, Raja Ampat is a chain of 1,500 paradisiac jungle-clad islands heralded as one of the most biologically diverse marine habitats on earth. A medley of steep limestone isles cloaked in thick tropical jungle and edged with white sand beaches makes cruising Raja Ampat naturally beautiful, not to mention the diversity of coral and fish beneath the waves.
Banda Sea & Spice Islands
Barely specks on the map, the Spice Islands are a collection of volcanic isles situated in the Banda Sea. They may be small, but they hold some of the greatest historic significance in Indonesia. Also known as the Banda Islands or the Maluku, the Spice Islands are known as the original source of nutmeg and mace during Dutch, English and Portuguese colonisation in the 17th century.
Sumbawa & Moyo Islands
Remote, authentic and natural describe Moyo Island best. It is a hidden paradise still unknown to the majority of tourists. A visit to Moyo Island takes the traveller on an adventure of discovery. Immense marine and land life provide an escape from reality. Man and nature still blend in harmony in that far away land. The island on the north coast of Sumbawa is only inhabited by 1,000 people in six villages, making a living by farming and fishing.
Located on the east coast of Indonesia’s West Papua region, Cendrawasih Bay is the next frontier in remote Indonesian diving. Where Raja Ampat to the west of West Papua is still deemed by many as an isolated destination, Cenderawasih Bay is one step further off the beaten track. Diving here is limited to five months each year, and the dive sites remain unspoiled and reasonably unexplored.
The rarely visited Alor archipelago can be found to the east of Komodo National Park and Flores. This gem in the Indonesian archipelago harbours a great deal of cultural interest. Between East Nusa Tengarra and Alor itself, these sloping isles feature fascinating local villages set in the shadow of dormant volcanoes and wide golden beaches that lead to exhilarating dive sites beneath the waves.
