It is time to sample a Komodo cruise and see for yourself what the excitement is all about. Anyone who has been there will tell you that you are in for a treat! Almost everyone comes to Komodo for one thing; the Komodo dragon.
However, the island has a lot more to offer. There are some amazing adventures to be had as well as breathtaking destinations to explore. Furthermore, the incredible beauty of the island is sure to leave you enraptured for days on end.
Here are a few things you can do in between exploring the beautiful shores of the island.
Make a Date with the Dragons
This is the one thing you do not want to miss out on. You cannot get as close and affectionate as you would with, say, a giraffe. There will be no taking of selfies with these giant lizards. However, just being able to observe them in their natural habitat is an event in itself.
The Komodo dragons are found on Komodo and Rinca islands. You can make a stop during your Komodo Island cruise and spend a few minutes with these pre-historic creatures. The National Park is ranked among the 7 World Wonders. In addition, it is a World Heritage Site.
You will, therefore, be communing with the only lizards of their kind in the whole world. The dragons are mammoth, fierce-looking reptiles that could easily bite your arm off. Actually, a bite from one of these lizards could turn fatal as the saliva is extremely toxic.
Fortunately, you will be accompanied by experienced guides to ensure your safety. On the off chance you have an unfortunate encounter with one, you must get attended to immediately.
Note: If you want to catch the dragons, you must hurry up before the National Park shuts its doors to visitors in 2020.
The Pink Beaches
While the Komodo dragon may frown upon your selfie attempts, you can take as many as you like on the Komodo beaches. There are a number of pink beaches to sink your feet in and take glossy family pictures.
The sand is essentially white but when the nearby red coral reefs shatter into tiny pieces, they fall into the sand. Once they come into contact with the white sand particles, the sand turns pink. That is where the beaches get their pink hue from.
What’s a cruise without indulging in your favorite water-based activities? Aside from swimming, there are lots of other activities to enjoy in the azure Komodo waters. Some of these include:
- Scuba diving
- Kite surfing
In addition, the vast species of marine life are exciting to watch. You could catch the huge manta rays as well as sharks as well as different species of fish.
Sample Different Varieties of Indonesian Cuisine and Culture
Your Komodo Island cruise serves a wide range of delicious Indonesian dishes. Also, your on-shore activities will give you access to more distinctive local dishes to enjoy.
Additionally, there is no shortage of entertainment with traditional music and dances performed by the locals.
Enjoy the Lovely Indonesian Sunsets
The one thing you will want to see every evening is the idyllic Indonesian Sunset. A burst of pink and orange covers the sky and basically just leaves you breathless. This is probably why many honeymooners opt for a cruise on the Indonesian waters.
Nothing could be more romantic. It is not uncommon to find couples wandering on deck hand in hand to catch the last strains of light.
There are a lot of activities to keep you busy on a Komodo cruise tour. That is if you can tear your eyes away from the beauty around you. The water, as well as the land, calls out to you. Visitors are certainly spoiled for choice. This cruise allows you to experience tropical perfection and gives you memories to last you a lifetime.
