Tendering from the ship, you will arrive at the Komodo Jetty which is the headquarters of Komodo National Park. The world-renowned wildlife island of Komodo is the desolate domain of a fierce and very rare species of reptile appropriately called a Komodo Dragon.  A clear indication of Komodo National Park's biological importance is its ranking with UNESCO as both a World Heritage Site and a Man and Biosphere Reserve. The Komodo Dragon is thought to be the remnant of a once widespread ancient order of monitor lizards. Today, fewer than 300 of this protected species remain and its continuing existence hangs in the balance. Often measuring up to 11 feet in length and weighing in at over 300 pounds, this ominous looking creature, with its sharp, saw-like teeth and menacing eyes, leaves a lasting impression on all who have had the opportunity to see it up close. Living on deer and wild pigs that inhabit the island, it is surprisingly agile when covering short distances and is a good swimmer. Once ashore, you will be met by a local tour guide to begin the walking expedition of the island. Traveling in small groups with the guide and a park ranger, you will make your way along paths that lead through pockets of thorny vegetation and dry tropical grasslands to the viewing point.

Celukan Bawang, Snorkeling at Menjangan Island
Menjangan Island is a small uninhabited island lying 5 miles to the northwest of Bali. Menjangan in Indonesian means “Deer” and herds of Barking Deer (Muntiacus muntjak) swim to the island every springtime and can be seen bathing and sunning themselves on the sandy beaches. This excursion is a must for anybody who is interested in marine life, snorkeling or diving. You will set off by coach to Labuan Lalang and from there you will take a boat to the island. The snorkeling here is said to be the best on Bali with transparent water and calm seas. One of the snorkeling sites is a coral garden with many beautiful coral fans and a host of colorful tropical fish. It is compulsory to be accompanied by a guide when in the water. One issue, which is unfortunately not unique to Menjangan, is that currents will sometimes wash plastic bags and detritus from the mainland out into the ocean.

Celukan Bawang, Ulundanu Temple Tour
Ulun Danu Temple is dedicated to the water goddess Dewi Danu and attracts pilgrims from all over the island; they come to worship the deity in the hope of ensuring a plentiful and steady supply of water. Set against a dramatic backdrop of some of the highest peaks in Bali, the temple seems to emerge from the waters of Lake Bratan and float on the surface as if by enchantment. The serene, deeply spiritual atmosphere that pervades the temple complex enhances the impression of being in another world, a threshold between the sacred and the profane. The complex consists of four temples each one with its own specific deity. Lingga Petak is dedicated to Siva, Penataran Pucak Manggu to Vishnu, Terate Bang to Brama and Dalem Purwa to the goddess Danu. The Ulun Danu Temple is one of the iconic landmarks of Bali, so much so that it is even depicted on the 50.000-rupiah bill. Your guide will tell you many interesting stories about the temple and accompany you on a fascinating journey of discovery, exploring Balinese culture and spirituality. Next you will visit a local market to see the selling and buying of local products. On the return trip there will be a photo stop at the Buyan and Tamblingan Twin lakes. The site will give you an overview of the volcanic heartland of Bali, the two crater lakes being situated in the caldera of the now extinct Bedugul Volcano.  The twin lakes were originally one big lake, but in 1800 a landslide split the lake in two. At an altitude of nearly 4,000 ft., this is the heart of Bali’s farming area with coffee plantations, vegetable fields and traditional rice paddies covering the nearby slopes, and Mayong Village, where you will have an opportunity for a photographic stop.
