Book an exciting private excursion by speedboat, motor yacht or catamaran for either a whole day or a half day. This is the highlight of any holiday in the region, and currently, the jumping-off points are Serangan, Bali for voyages to the Nusa Islands and Labuan Bajo, Flores for tours of Komodo National Park. Usually, these depart in the morning and return to the same port in the evening.

These trips are lots of fun and generally include some island hopping and water sports as well as snorkelling through unbelievable coral gardens densely packed with marine life. For divers, there are also excursions that focus on seeking out some of the best secret spots for deeper underwater adventures where you can swim with manta rays and sharks. If you only have a day to discover the joys of this maritime nation, this is the way to do it!
