Welcome to Komodo & Rinca Islands

Padar Island, conveniently positioned between Komodo and Rinca, is a highly prized photography perch, gifting those who climb the stairs an outlook of three perfect bays that transition from aquamarine to sapphire blue.

These isolated islands are surrounded by some of Indonesia's most tempestuous waters. Warm and cold currents converge and breed nutritious thermal climes and rip tides that attract large schools of pelagics, including dolphins, sharks, manta rays and blue whales. The coral here is mostly pristine. With some of the best diving in the world, it's no surprise that liveaboards ply these waters between April and September when diving is at its finest.
