Sail with me around the Komodo Islands! - Group Adventure in Indonesia July 14-21

There are few trips that I have taken in the last 7 years of travel that compare - living on a boat for a few days to sail around the remote islands of Komodo National Park, see real life dragons, meet an indigenous tribe, hike through the jungle, and snorkel around pink beaches in search for giant mantas, turtles, dolphins and other wildlife... is right at the top up there. I've loved this trip so much, I've done it twice in the past, and I'm excited to take a bunch of "strangers from the internet" with me on the next one this July. 

[ONLY 2 SPOTS LEFT]

Why this trip? If you're here, you probably know what my travels are about, and you also know that it will attract exactly the kind of people that are interested in the same things: human connections, adventure, and a love for authentic travel.  
 

Why apply? We could make our job a whole lot easier and just accept direct bookings, but we pride ourselves on the groups of people we put together, making sure everyone's on the same fun, flexible, and travel-loving wavelength as everyone on the trips's travel family. So if that sounds like you, don't be shy - apply! 

Do I need any sailing experience to join? No experience needed whatsoever. We will have a full crew to take care of us. Your only job will be to enjoy time to the fullest.

What's the itinerary?

To transmit the feeling of adventure and spontaneity, we keep our itinerary secret and reveal our plans the day before, because we love to give good surprises. We believe good travel is about taking you on a ride instead of ticking off a list.
But don't worry, our trip will include all the highlights of this region of Indonesia, such as hiking Padar Island, exploring Komodo National Park and seeing the Komodo Dragons up close, all while living on a boat surrounded by surreal landscape and jumping into the sea first thing in the morning for a couple of days. Besides from that, we'll also be staying overnight in Wae Rebo village with a remote tribe, and even explore Bali for a day since it's the starting and ending point of our trip - we figured this would be the most convenient "meet up point" for most people. 

Boat interior:

The boat will be private for our trip, has a lounging and dinner area, soft bedding and running water (albeit limited).

 

What flights should I look for? 

Flying in & out of Bali Denpasar intl. Airport (DPS).

We strongly advice to plan in buffers before & after flights, as with short staffing at airlines a lot of delays and cancellations are happening. So try to arrive a day or two early, same for departure.

Starting of trip in Bali July 14th morning / afternoon (next day we catch our inter-island flight to get to Komodo, which is included in the price).

Departure from Komodo, and back to Bali is July 21st in the afternoon, so we recommend booking your flight out on the 22nd July or later. Extensions to explore Bali are encouraged - it's a beautiful island and we can give you our best recommendations on all the non-touristy spots. :)
