  1. Beyond Here There be Dragons! Komodo Island, Indonesia (Laboanbajo to Maumere) Underwater Photo Expedition on the Damai I Liveaboard. January 28 - February 8th, 2017 Komodo National Park, located in the center of the Indonesian archipelago, between the islands of Sumbawa and Flores, is composed of three major islands (Rinca, Komodo, and Padar) and numerous smaller ones, all of them of volcanic origin. Located at the meeting of two continental plates, this national park constitutes the “shatter belt” within the Wallacea Biogeographical Region, between the Australian and Sunda ecosystems. The park is identified as a global conservation priority area, comprising unparalleled terrestrial and marine ecosystems. The dry climate has triggered specific evolutionary adaptation within the terrestrial flora that range from open grass-woodland savanna to tropical deciduous (monsoon) forest and quasi cloud forest. The rugged hillsides and dry vegetation highly contrast with the sandy beaches and the blue coral-rich waters. The park is best known for the Komodo “dragon” monitor, the world's largest living lizard, measuring up to 8’ long! Upwelling of nutrient-rich water from deeper areas of the archipelago is responsible for the rich reef ecosystem. Because of the strong currents formed by the tides going in and out of the north, the reefs off Komodo have incredible species diversity. The variety of marine life that you can see in Komodo rivals any of the world's best dive destinations. From sunfish, mantas, dolphins and eagle rays to pygmy seahorses, ornate ghost pipefish, clown frogfish, nudibranchs and blue-ringed octopus, all are at home amongst a spectacular range of colorful sponges, sea squirts, tunicates and corals; Komodo is a macro enthusiast's heaven. For wide angle photographers there are lots of great walls, sea mounts, huge sponges and opportunities for larger animals like sharks, mantas, tuna and rays. It is also home to dugongs and other mammals. In Jan/February, when we are going, there are generally less than ideal conditions up north, but good conditions in the south. Horseshoe Bay a favorite spot, is cold in the summer - in the 60's at times. But in the winter, it's bluer, clearer, and warmer, getting into the 80's, but still with incredible marine life. The other benefit of going to Komodo during the winter is that almost all other liveaboards have moved east to Raja Ampat, so it tends to be way more "exclusive", with very little competition for dive sites. This charter is a re-positioning cruise, as the boat leaves the Komodo area and goes to Flores Island. Although 11 days in length, we are only being charged for 10! Access is good from both ports; easy non-stop flights from Bali. Our schedule in Komodo itself for the first 6 days mostly focuses on the southern parts of the area. Horseshoe Bay (Nusa Kode) includes world class dive sites Cannibal Rock, Yellow Wall, Torpedo Alley, Pelican Head, and Rodeo Rock (amongst others). One could easily spend a full week diving just this area, and be very happy and productive. After day 6, we will head east from Komodo, crossing the N. coast of Flores, diving along the way. There will still be good diving, but more motoring than the previous week (there may not be night dives on the days with long crossings). There are more macro opportunities in these few days, but also some decent walls, and a very interesting visit to Komba volcano for a dive and evening "fireworks" show (Vulcan willing).
