One day before the ship sails, you’ll fly into the airport of Labuan Bajo (airport code LBJ) on the island of Flores. One of Everything To Sea’s group leaders will meet you at the airport and bring you to your hotel. You’ll have time to explore the town, or perhaps enjoy an afternoon at the pool in one of our recommended hotels. If you’re looking for more of a local option, be sure not to miss the local fish market.

On the morning of our departure, we’ll pick you up from your hotel and bring you to the harbor. After a refreshing welcome juice and an introduction to our crew, you’ll explore our large all-wooden ship known as “Pinisi”. And then, our captain and crew will set sail.

Indonesian islands form an intricate coastline that’s the fourth longest in the world. Amongst literally thousands of islands – the archipelago boasts nearly 17,000 pieces of land surrounded by water – many are uninhabited, and many are small. Being so extensive, the part of the country that’s within The Coral Triangle is characterized by coral reefs, deposits from volcanoes, and extremely rich marine biodiversity. This is perfectly displayed on our last snorkeling spot – home to hundreds of different fish species. On top of that, the views above the water are full of superlatives – the worlds largest this, the highest number of that, the most something else. Honestly, this trip is nothing short of astounding! 

Specific highlights during this itinerary:


::: Pulau Boleng – a calm remote bay that practically invites you to swim. Or look. Or hang in it. Or just, be…

::: Pulau Kalong Rinca – watch literally thousands of flying foxes head out into the sunset. There’s nothing quite like seeing the largest bats on Earth, while enjoying a drink from our ship’s bar.

::: Pulau Siaba – the perfect place to enjoy swimming and snorkeling in tranquil waters with Sea Turtles. If you haven’t snorkeled before, it’s no problem… just let one of our staff take your hand. Six of the seven species of sea turtles on the planet are found here (seeing them is often cited as a highlight for guys on our trips).

::: Rangko Cave – Forget everything you’ve thought about caves, and come in. Swim, marvel at the sunlight bouncing off the water, or just enjoy a quiet moment as you take in this stalagmite and stalactite-filled tropical blue wonderland. 

::: A secret spot that’s one of the most isolated areas on our trip. We’ll slowly sail along the impressive coast, and land on the beach just in time for sundowners. Like, wow…

::: Pulau Burung – a small but stunning island with turquoise blue water and a white sand beach. List this one under “Idyllic islands you’ve probably never heard of”

::: Mountains surrounded by multiple bays? A forty minute hike up, and you’re in one of the most picturesque places on the planet. Yep, guaranteed. 

::: On a deserted island, take part in a personal favorite of the Everything To Sea founders – a clothing-optional BBQ under a star-filled sky.

::: Manta Point, where the waters of two oceans meet to create a perfect underwater climate for manta rays. We’ll snorkel here, and with a bit of luck we’ll be able to see these calm, gliding giants. Amongst the largest fish in the world with a wing span of up to 7 metres, they can weigh up to two tons – and yet, they’re completely harmless to humans.

::: A pink beach, after a relaxed morning. This planet’s amazing… and life sure is good. Take a walk on the shore of one of the world’s few pink beaches (the shells there – gasp!). Enjoy a snorkel wading in from the island’s sands. Or perhaps embark on a personal challenge – swim back to the boat through the warm waters.

::: An out-of-the-way Komodo dragon ranger station. Guided by them, we will hike through the Komodo dragons’ natural habitat. These other-worldly beings are truly amazing. And they’re endemic to this island, which was declared a World Heritage Site about thirty years ago. Easily the largest lizard on earth, Komodo dragons can grow up to 10 feet. No one knows exactly why, yet almost everyone agrees: there’s nothing on the planet quite like them. 


Other highlights during this itinerary:


::: Delicious and colorful meals from our chef

::: Many opportunities to shed your clothes with new friends, outside in the warm air

::: Chill out and browse through our library’s books

::: Take advantage of our body-hair shaving

::: Connect to our bluetooth speakers and share your music vibes with other guys

::: Enjoy a complimentary massage

::: Marvel at the sun setting on the horizon. Each evening, it’s always a different visual stimulation!

::: This is your experience, so really – do whatever you’d like…


On Day 7 after breakfast, we’ll slowly cruise back to Labuan Bajo. It’ll be time to say goodbye to new friends – but we will have spectacular memories of our time here together. Our driver will transfer you to the airport for your flight out, or perhaps to your hotel should you decide to stay on.
