DAY 1

Upon Arrival at Labuanbajo airport, transfer to the  harbor where we board our boat, the BUGIS. We’ll sail  for one hours while your cruise director gives you a  general briefing to familiarize you with the vessel and  our safety procedures. We make a swim along the nice beach of Kelor island.  Then we trekking though the monsoon forests of Rinca  island, hoping to catch a glimpse of the elusive  Komodo dragon.


DAYS 2:

Today will be a day dedicated to the wonderful  underwater world of Komodo National Park. With a bit  of luck, we might be able to observe manta rays,  turtles, and other colorful fish. In the late afternoon, we  will depart for the Takabonerate atoll.


DAY 3:

After a night of navigation, we arrive at Bonerate island,  in the middle of the Flores Sea. We visit the main village:  sandy streets, traditional houses built on stilts and  elegant Lambo boats being built on the beach. Midday,  we cross the narrow strait to the eastern tip of Kalao  island and anchor along a spectacular beach.  Snorkeling on a nearby reef, hike to the nearby village.  Apero on the beach at sunset and quite night at anchor


DAY 4, 5 & 6

We spend three full days exploring the many islands of  the Taka Bonerate National Park, some inhabited, most  empty. There will be plenty of beach combing,  snorkeling, zodiac exploration in lagoon, visits villages  with hordes of children in tow, meeting the locals and  of course beach BBQ on remote beaches.


DAY 7:

With its high cliffs towering over a heavenly beach  lined with coconut trees, Batuata is definitely one of the  most scenic island of the region. After setting foot  ashore, we pay respect to the local Chief, ask for  permission to go around and see the island. We visit  the local school, hear the children singing the latest  local hits. This is truly a remote place, far away from  other islands and you will definitely enjoy the  remoteness of it. Late afternoon sail towards  Wakatobi


DAY 8 & 9:

We will drop the anchor early morning at the southern  tip of Hoga island, nearby Kaledupa Island. Fringed by  mangrove forest and beaches shaded by coconut trees,  those islands have a lot to offer for the two days we’ll  spend there. A visit to a Bajo village entirely built on stilts  above the sea is a must. In the past these `sea gypsies`  were more nomadic, living on their boats. Today they live  more sedentariously in houses on stilts but they still rely.


DAY 10:

After a few hours of navigation at dawn, we reach the  island of Wangi Wangi. First, we will visit Bajo Mola: the  very first bajo village in the island of Wangi Wangi  settled down 65 years ago. Please join our crew for the  shopping to market to stock up fresh produces. After a  snorkeling session, close to the boat, we hoist the  anchor for the night passage to Saponda islands.


DAYS 11:

For the last day in paradise, we will start with a very nice  snorkeling session. After the visit of the village, we will  raise the anchor to a deserted island. Late evening, we  sail to Kendari, our final destination.


DAY12:

After breakfast we say goodbye to captain and crew  of the BUGIS and we will transfer you to the airport.
