Boat Flores - Sumbawa/Lombok or SumbaI´m going to travel in Indonesia next month with my fam and was thinking of taking a boat trip from Flores via Rinca to Sumbawa/Lombok. Did that trip 20y ago on a small boat with other BP. Does anyone know a reliable boat company or agent in Flores that makes theese trips. I´m not looking for something fancy but a relaxed boat, resonably safe with a lot of snorkeling, perhaps even diving stops. We are very experienced and laid back backpackers.
By the way is it worth to go to Sumba theese days. Was there also 20y ago? What about going north into the archipelago? Worth the money?

2Arrange it all when you arrive in Labuanbajo, you will see many operators that you can book in person. Or if you want to do the Perama that's ok too, they are very reliable. ..depends on your travel style. LB has changed a lot since you were last here, but the rest of Flores has not changed as much, being distant from Komodo the mecca for big lizards.
What do you mean when you ask if Sunba is still worth it? In what way? Also, which archipelago are you thinking of?...the whole country is part of an archipelago...
