Day 1 Flores / Pulau Rinca
Tiger Blue is a beautiful traditional timber phinisi yacht which sails around Indonesia’s eastern islands, dropping anchor hither and thither for you to explore some of the country’s prettiest islands and dive the coral gardens, which are not only home to a vast array of colourful tropical fish, but also rays, sharks, turtles and dolphin. You’ll board Tiger Blue in Flores, setting sail for Pulau Rinca, one of the Komodo Islands listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Accessible only by boat, the islands are where you’ll find the world’s largest and most formidable lizard - the Komodo Dragon.
Tiger Blue | Meals: Lunch, Dinner

Day 2 Pulau Rinca / Padar Island
As you hike around Pulau Rinca, you’ll come across all sorts of wildlife and exotic birds, and of course, the foul-breathed, forked tongued, strangely mesmerising Komodo Dragon – but don’t worry – your ranger will ensure your encounter with them is a safe one. Tiger Blue sets sail while you enjoy an alfresco lunch on board, arriving at Padar Island in time for cocktails around a camp fire on a deserted coral beach as the sun goes down.
Tiger Blue | Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 3 Padar Island / Nusa Kode
Spend the morning snorkelling and diving at Padar Bay before setting sail for Nusa Kode (South Rinca Island), for more superb diving and snorkelling in the warm waters abound with marine life. Or take on the gentle swell on water skis, wake boards or kayaks, as you choose. Or if you fancy a spot of land-lubbing, there are lovely walks on shore, and a beautiful white sand beach to chill out on.
Tiger Blue | Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 4 Nusa Kode
Spend a second day enjoying the natural treasures of Nusa Kobe which is as unspoilt by humans as it was when it was first explored.
Tiger Blue | Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 5 Manta Alley / South Komodo Island
Tiger Blue weighs anchor early in the morning, headed for Manta Alley (South Komodo) where you’ll be able to dive or snorkel with the manta rays which are prolific here. While you enjoy lunch on board, you’ll sail to the remote South Komodo Bay, characterised by its rocky headlands and sandy bays framed by soaring dramatic volcanic cliffs.
Tiger Blue | Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 6 Komodo Island / Pulau Mawan

An early morning sail to Pantai Merah (Pink Beach), Loh Liang on Komodo Island where you are likely to have a cheery encounter with some of the islanders as they paddle up to Tiger Blue on sampans loaded with trinkets and souvenirs. In the afternoon you’ll sail to Pulau Mawan’s spectacular beach from where the nearby Batu Bulong dive site awaits your exploration.
Tiger Blue | Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 7 Pulau Mawan / Gili Lawa Laut
After setting sail in the early morning, you’ll arrive at Gili Lawa Laut in North Komodo, where you can dive and snorkel around Cristal and Castle rock, or go walking on the island which affords stunning views. In the afternoon you’ll head to the pristine bay at Gillie Lawa Darat to moor for your final night on board.
Tiger Blue | Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 8 Gili Lawa Laut / Flores
After breakfast on board, Tiger Blue sets sail back to Flores along the wild southern coastline.
Meals: Breakfast

You can extend this trip to a 10 - 14 day itinerary to visit the island of Sumba, known for its fascinating culture, Ikat cloth production, sandalwood, wild horses and excellent surfing.
