A forgotten Eden

From the colourful reefs of Tatawa Island to the enchanting hues of Komodo’s Pink Beach, this is a region of pristine natural beauty. Isolated coves, countless bays and tropical islets compete for attention with white sand beaches, mangroves, lagoons and remarkable limestone formations, not to mention the wildlife.

Rinca Island and the reefs of Sabayor

Home to astonishing wildlife, Rinca Island also offers exciting trekking routes with spectacular views. Back onboard Amandira, charter a course for Sabayor where multi-hued reefs are visited by white tip reef sharks, huge Napolean wrasse, turtles, manta rays and schools of tropical fish.

Unparalleled scuba diving and snorkelling

Dive in the reefs surrounding Satonda Island and kayak under the bat-filled trees fringing a volcanic lake. Wake up to the reefs of Batu Monchu Bay, frequented by manta rays and dolphins. Experience the magnificent underwater sea mounds of Crystal and Castle Rocks at Gili Lawa Laut and snorkel with manta rays at Makassar.

Walking with dragons

Follow expert rangers to encounter Komodo dragons in their natural habitat, spanning the rugged islands of Komodo and Rinca. Unchanged since prehistoric times, these mighty monitor lizards can grow up to three metres in length, living alongside monkeys, deer, water buffalo, wild boar and prolific birdlife.

Designed for adventure

As well as a private chef and waitstaff, a PADI-certified diver is on board to tailor itineraries and offer instruction for experts and beginners alike. Amandira is fitted with state-of-the-art equipment allowing for a variety of dives, as well as snorkelling and kayaking.

Sunsets and starlight beach barbecues

Cruise to Wainilu Island, north of Rinca, for an afternoon dive and a starlit barbecue on the beach. Overnight near Pink Beach on Komodo Island and as the sun turns the sky a myriad pinks, watch as thousands of bats embark on their nightly journeys like smoke drifting across the sky.
