Komodo National Park (KNP) has been listed as one of the “New 7 Wonders of Nature,” and this trip gives you a front-row seat to this world-class destination, which appears on almost every diver’s bucket list. It also gives you first-class accommodation, as the Arenui is renowned in the diving community as one of the most luxurious liveaboards operating today.
This is a great itinerary for all kinds of muck diving, as the KNP dive sites are packed full of unbelievable critters such as ornate ghost pipefish, pygmy seahorses, rare clown frogfish, Blue-Ringed Octopus, Pipefish, Leaf Scorpionfish, Coleman Shrimp, Boxer Crabs, zebra crabs and of course the weird and wonderful nudibranchs. If you’re lucky, you might even spot the ridiculously cute Pikachu Nudi.
Experience the exhilarating Sardine Run; spending time out at sea interacting with dolphins, whales, seals, penguins, sharks and birds, chasing the “Biggest Shoal on Earth!”
It all starts in Port Elizabeth (Nelson Mandela Bay). This area is becoming known as one of the major hot spots for the Sardine Run by international photographers and filming companies, including National Geographic.
