Aboard the Indonesian Aggressor your 11-day and ten-night itinerary will encompass the whole of the Komodo National Park. Embarking and disembarking in Labuan Bajo, the diving will primary be concentrated in Sape Straits, the area separating Komodo and Rinca Island. The Komodo National Park is a World Heritage listed National Park, which means there is an abundance of life above and below. On this trip you can see Manta Rays in Makassar Reef and in Manta Alley, beautiful soft corals, schooling fish like jacks, Eagle Rays, Nurse Sharks, White Tip Sharks and of course where this is a diverse and beautiful range of soft corals, good macro life (muck diving). Of course when visiting the Komodo National Park one must see the Komodo Dragon. You will have a guided walk with a local ranger so you can see the worlds largest lizard in detail. Not only excellent diving and excursions are on offer, you are aboard the Aggressor vessel which is well known for its excellent service and comfort as well - a trip to remember.
