Indonesia: Drink It In

Rising from the seas of East Indonesia where two continental plates collide, the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Komodo National Park is a wonder of nature in every way imaginable. Komodo National Park comprises three main islands — Komodo, Padar and Rinca — and 26 smaller islets. Several of these are inhabited by the native Komodo Dragon, the largest lizard species to walk the Earth. Sail off on a dream cruise from Bali to Komodo National Park, on the exceptional Aqua Blu and enjoy an adventurous cruise through the stunningly beautiful scenery of the untouched Indonesian seas.

Day 7: Moyo Island
Arrive in Moyo, a remote hilly island with a handful of fishing villages. Discover wildlife en route to the spectacular waterfall at the center of the island and snorkel at the shallow Angel Reefs for an unforgettable experience. Aqua Blu sets sail for Bali during sunset.

Activity Level:
Guests should be in good physical health to be able to make the most of their East Indonesian expedition. The daily nature excursions may include walking on irregular terrain and getting in and out of the tenders occasionally which requires some physical effort. A shore excursion can be anything from spotting exotic wildlife along a jungle trail to climbing up an active volcano,  from visiting a local village to swimming with whale sharks. They vary in level of difficulty, but most travelers who are reasonably fit will have no trouble participating in every activity.
