Dolphins are a common sight in the seas between Komodo and Flores and the area is also on a Whale migration route. The reefs offer good snorkelling and some of the best diving in Indonesia, especially with Manta Rays. Buffalo, Deer, Wild Pigs and Birdlife are all plentiful on land but the most remarkable attraction is its endangered monitor lizards, Varanus Komodoensis.
The Komodo Island monitors, known also as ‘Komodo Dragons’ or ‘ora’ are the largest living lizards on Earth and found only on Komodo, Rinca, and Western Flores islands. An average adult can measure up to 3 meters long and weigh 136 kilograms but despite its size can move quickly on the ground and is an agile swimmer and climber. These lizards have a dark gray, stocky body and stout, powerful legs with sharply clawed feet. Their heads are large and their long, forked tongues are used to sense the air following the scent of prey which consists of wild pigs, deer, water buffalo, goats, birds, and other monitors.

Swim with nudibranch, turtles, sea snakes and frogfish among some of the most colorful coral in Indonesia. After lunch, we will take you by tender to the shore where you will be able to see the world’s largest living lizard, the Komodo dragon.
During the lunch, cruise to Gili Lawa Darat where we will spend the afternoon.
Enjoy your last dive or snorkeling experience of your journey at one of the most famous dive sites nearby, before cruising over lunch to Bidadari, also known as Angel Island. Here, a white sandy beach awaits as the perfect set up for Lamima Beach Club.
