We think we’ve come up with the ultimate snorkeling adventure with our Alor & Komodo Safari. This tour combines amazing reefs with turtles, rays and larger marine life like manta rays and sunfish. Located in arguably two of Indonesia’s premier snorkeling locations.

At our first stop in Alor you will be blown away by the sheer beauty of the marine life and reefscapes just beneath the surface. There is also the possibility of coming across a couple of the ocean’s most iconic inhabitants, like a super pod of dolphins and melon head whales, giant ocean sun fish, and even blue whales as we move from site to site. Here in Alor we base ourselves in the secluded resort called Alami Alor, where we will be the only guests and will have exclusive access to their house reefs and embark on snorkeling excursions multiple times a day.

For the second leg of the trip we move over to Komodo National Park where we will stay with Komodo Resort. This resort is situated on it’s own private island complete with hiking trails, a spa, gym, decadent meals, and an outstanding house reef. Better yet, the resort is on the door steps to the national parks boundary where we will encounter turtles, reef sharks, cephalopods, and almost certainly giant manta rays! Oh yes, and the famous Komodo Dragons!

Alor-Komodo Itinerary

Day 1 - Arrive Jakarta

Arrive into Jakarta and meet your tour leader. Rest and relax.


Day 2 - Day 7 - Alami Alor Resort

You’ll spend 7 nights at the beautiful Alami Alor Resort. The first evening is dedicated to getting to know each other with resort orientation and safety briefings along the way. Rest and relax in the comfort of the lounge, check the fish books and watch the sunset over neighboring islands.

Our mornings at Alami Alor start with Western and Indonesia style breakfasts – your choice. Fresh Indonesian coffee, fruit juice or coconut milk.

We’ll then head to the boats, a short walk along the jetty for the first snorkel session. Groups are split into 6 per boat with at least one guide per group, often 2. We start with easy sites – as little current as possible to allow for a gentle introduction. Time to reach the sites ranges from 10 – 30 minutes.

Each snorkel session will last between 60 and 90 minutes in the water with boat support if you prefer shorter session. Back to the resort for lunch and a rest back at your room, watching local dug-out canoes pass by veranda. In the afternoon we will head to another site for another session.

There’s flexibility to snorkel the house reef at your leisure with a local crew on hand as look out. Likewise we often night snorkel the house reef – excellent for critters. Mandarin fish can be seen mating in the sallows as the sun sets.
