If you have only one chance at snorkeling the best sites in Indonesia, this is the tour for you. This epic 31 night snorkel safari is the most comprehensive tour we’ve ever put together for Indonesia as it includes stops in Alor, Komodo, Wakatobi, Bali, and Raja Ampat’s Misool. Not only will you be immersed in the best reefs and surrounded by throngs of fish, but you’ll also be hosted by the country’s finest resorts who will look after your every need on land and in the water.

Wakatobi is situated at the geographical center of the Coral Triangle, the most marine bio-diverse environment in the world. Wakatobi in particular is recognized as having the highest number of coral and fish species found anywhere on the planet and has a truly amazing house reef, which one can easily explore from the resort’s pier. The islands and reefs in the Wakatobi National Park have been preserved from the negative effects of large-scale tourism as the area is only accessible by private charter flights and liveaboard boats.

Alor In this remote region of eastern Indonesia we’ll be hosted by one of the only resorts in the area, Alami Alor. We charter the entire resort which will give us unfettered access to the resort and all that they offer, including their amazing house reef and all the snorkeling nearby. While Alor is still a bit of a secret to a lot of the world, we’ve become very fond of the snorkeling here as the shallow reefs remain in near pristine condition. Besides the vibrant coral reefs bursting with life, large cetaceans like blue whales and super pods of dolphins are not uncommon as we move between the sites.

Komodo is one of the premier snorkeling regions of Indonesia and we’ll be based at the beautiful Komodo Resort. This resort is situated on its own private island complete with hiking trails, a spa, a gym, delicious meals, and an outstanding house reef. Better yet, the resort is on the doorsteps to the boundary of the national park where we will encounter turtles, reef sharks, cephalopods, and almost certainly giant manta rays! Oh yes, and the famous Komodo Dragons!

Bali is well known around the world as being the ‘paradise island,’ and if you haven’t already experienced it, we’ll show you why. Outside of the transit stops, we will be spending three nights in Bali. Here we intend to give you a taste of the amazing culture, food, stunning landscapes, iconic temples, and of course, the exquisite resorts that Bali has become famous for.

Misool is the southernmost set of islands in Raja Ampat, and is truly a paradise brimming with pristine coral reefs and more exotic marine species than you possibly count in a single trip. Misool Resort is the only resort in this entire largely- uninhabited area, and yet the comfort and style of this resort is second to none. Because of the amazing conservation efforts taken on by the resort, the surrounding waters are densely populated with sharks, rays, and swarms of fish big and small.
