As you arrive at Kendari airport, a world of  enchantment awaits. You'll be gracefully escorted to  the elegant BUGIS boat, the gateway to your  extraordinary journey. We'll set sail towards our first  destination while your knowledgeable cruise director  introduces you to the vessel and our safety  procedures. After, let’s immerse yourself in the vibrant  underwater world with an exhilarating snorkeling  adventure. After a visit to a charming village, we'll raise  anchor and continue our voyage under the shimmering  starlit sky, bound for our next captivating destination.


Wake up to the breathtaking vista of Wangi Wangi  Island in the morning. Our day begins with a visit to  Bajo Mola, the original Bajo village on Wangi Wangi  Island, established 65 years ago. Join our crew as we  embark on a shopping adventure to the local market  to gather fresh produce. Following an exciting  snorkeling session near the boat and exploring this  beautiful region.

DAY 3 & 4:

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 5:

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.

DAY 6, 7 & 8:

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 9:

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 10:

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.

DAYS 11:

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.


Enjoy a refreshing morning swim along the beautiful  Kelor Island beach. After breakfast, it's time to bid  farewell to the captain and crew of the BUGIS. We'll then  arrange your transfer to the airport, ensuring you carry  with you memories that will last a lifetime.
