Following our popular Whale Sharks, Corals & Dragons cruise route this voyage has been designed for kids, teenagers and adults and will be led by Ray & Angela Hale, two UK-based conservationists and naturalists who have a strong but fun conservation message to impart to kids of all ages.

Starting and ending in the Komodo National Park, this is a journey through the volcanic epicenter of Indonesia’s Ring of Fire, where you will see the results of countless millennia of Earth’s shifting tectonic plates, mighty forces that have helped shape the landscapes, cultures and habitats that exist both on land and in the sea.

On this trip expect to:

• Learn about animal camouflage and how to spot animals in the wild wherever they may be hiding – bring your binoculars if you have them!

• Learn how to draw the wildlife that you see with art classes with accomplished painter and illustrator Angela.

• Enjoy interactive and educational nightly presentations on the wildlife we will see along the way in preparation for the following day’s activities.

• Hear about the ecology of the Ring of Fire and learn about the importance of wildlife and habitat conservation.

• Learn about Komodo dragons and how they have evolved to live in these barren and ancient islands.

• Swim with whale sharks and manta rays and sea turtles.

• Explore the kaleidoscopic coral reefs for hours each day surrounded by hundreds of fish and coral species.

• Visit local villages and meet the local people to see how they live their lives.

• Swim paddleboard, kayak and explore on glorious white sand beaches.


Whether it’s swimming with whale sharks & mantas rays, or leisurely gliding along a stunning tropical reef surrounded by myriad fish and corals, snorkelling lies at the very heart of what we do at SeaTrek. We do it well and we do it often - usually twice a day for an hour or more at a time. No matter if you are a novice or a seasoned pro, our tour leaders will ensure that you have everything you need to have some of the best underwater experiences of your life.


Our four-day orangutan programme that features in our Orangutans & Dragons itinerary can be worked into any of our SeaTrek cruises throughout the year, regardless of length or location, so just let us know if this is something you would like to do when visiting Indonesia and we will happily arrange it for you. We are also a wealth of information on other great destinations and wildlife and cultural excursions in Indonesia that can be added on to your SeaTrek cruise. The possibilities are endless so all you have to do is ask.


Our mission is to provide the best experience possible for our guests given the current conditions and when unexpected opportunities for adventure may present themselves along our cruise routes. Sometimes weather conditions, tides or other local factors dictate that we need to vary from the published route, and at times there are special opportunities to explore and discover new locations, events and activities. These explorations will always be a definite enhancement to the published itinerary and will be undertaken after discussion and agreement among guests. Ultimately, the boat captains and your tour leader will make decisions to maximize trip safety and your overall enjoyment, so please come prepared to be flexible!

The More You Know The More You See

Our tour leaders are a wealth of information on the regions we visit and will prepare you for each activity with on board talks and presentations to give you a greater understanding of the different experiences you will have each day. They will also act as your cross cultural bridges to all the people we meet along the way, so feel free to ask them to translate when talking to local Indonesian people on your travels.
