Komodo is one of Indonesia's oldest marine sanctuaries, arguably the most popular, and since 1991 has been identified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This esteemed declaration has kept the Komodo area-from mountain tops to the reefs-in immaculate condition where the local wildlife continues to thrive and surge in population and beauty. We will be extremely well looked after on our own private island where Komodo Resort is perfectly located.
This is the kind of location that should appeal to snorkelers seeking to step off the beaten path in a secluded corner of Indonesia.
All trips are accompanied by at least one Snorkel Venture guide as well as local guides who are all well versed in the marine life and the reefs. Staff are available to help with water entry and exits, and all snorkel sessions have boat surface support to ensure our safety.
This group tour is exclusively for snorkelers and offers 6 days of adventure based snorkeling. There are up to two snorkeling sessions scheduled per day, once in the morning and once in the afternoon. Each session will typically include two 60 minute snorkels. Each boat has two spacious decks while the upper deck is outfitted with comfortable bean bags and shaded areas perfect for viewing the incredible topside vistas of the Komodo National Park.
For the duration of the trip we will be based just outside the boundaries of Komodo National Park as we stay with Komodo Resort, who will cater exclusively to our snorkeling needs. This resort is situated on it's own private island complete with private bungalows, hiking trails, a spa, gym, decadent meals, kayaks, and a really really outstanding house reef. Each day we will set out on our own spacious boat reserved solely for us, and head into Komodo National Park for multiple snorkeling sessions. From the house reef to the national park you will surely be blown away with the stunning reefs, turtle encounters, reef sharks, cephalopods, and giant manta rays. Oh yeah, the infamous Komodo Dragons!
Our itinerary begins on the island of Bali with a welcome dinner at the Novotel Hotel just a short walk from the airport. The following morning we have a short flight to Labuan Bajo where we are met by the resort team and transferred by boat to Komodo Resort. After 7 nights we return to Bali for onward transfer. The Komodo snorkel safari also includes a half day tour to Rinca Island to see the incredible Komodo Dragons.

The Komodo trip was truly wonderful – healthy coral, turtles, Manta Rays, anenomes, cuttlefish, and an abundance of interesting and beautiful fish! The resort was lovely, the house reef was quite amazing, and the guides were top notch. I highly recommend this trip and I’ll definitely go on other trips with Snorkel Venture. Libby, Nov 2019
