$6035 per person/double occupancy
Group size is limited to 8 guests only. $1500 deposit to reserve your spot.
ONE MALE AND ONE FEMALE SPOT LEFTWe'll be aboard Dive-Damai, the same boat we chartered for our recent Raja Ampat trip. We will concentrate on the highlights of Komodo with two days of exploration in the south of Flores. The last part will be in the Alor area and surrounding islands. This longer trip allows us to focus on the best of these areas and go off to find some new dive sites also. The last time I was in this area I was able to photograph many critters I've never seen before. There are great opportunities here for both wide angle photography, as well as macro.
All the flights will be out of Dempasar, Bali. Our starting point on the boat, Labuan Bajo (LBJ) is about 325 miles east of Bali and Kupang (KOE). Where we get off the boat, is about 590 miles east of Bali. We'll be using Dive-Damai to arrange the domestic flights. We'll be happy to assist you with international flights to and from Bali if you need. We highly recommend you arrive in Bali at least one to two full days before the domestic flights to Labuanbajo. If you have not been to Bali before, you may want to schedule more time there also. Bali is one of the most exotic places I've ever visited and I can give you a lot of recommendations of where to go and what to see.
This photo excursion is limited to eight guests only, so there will be plenty of time to work with each person one-on-one! We will also offer several underwater photography related presentations on several of the evenings. This trip will be tailored to your needs and requests!
