Snorkeling in Indonesia

Indonesia

Where colorful birds flit through the treetops in Tangkoko Nature Reserve, where spectacular underwater splendors await off Sulawesi, where dragons roam on Komodo Islandyour Indonesia tour with Zegrahm Expeditions—by cruise and overland—captures all this and more in an exciting and highly immersive Indonesia travel experience. Mingle with the locals in Ubud, taking home artistic treasures from your Indonesia tour. Overnight in the mountain village of the Toraja and marvel at their boat-shaped houses and hillside cave tombs. All the while, we’ll travel in the luxury of the all-suite Caledonian Sky, designed to provide a spacious, yet intimate Indonesia tour with like-minded world travelers. A fleet of Zodiacs takes us aboard for immediate access to remote shorelines and islands and she is equipped to offer complimentary scuba diving so you can explore one of the world's most impressive marine environments.

    On Location: Asmat Villages

    March 25, 2013

    Our flotilla of Zodiacs sped upriver in the direction of the small Asmat village of Ewer, on the edge of a huge flooded mangrove forest with little change in elevation for miles and miles. The village seemed quiet, but when we looked with binoculars, it became clear that there were hundreds of people lining the shore watching our approach.

    March 13, 2013

    Under glorious sunshine, we headed out to explore the reef fringing tiny Dondola Island. The white sand flats between the reef and the island glowed a most inviting and brilliant blue color, and the outside of the reef dropped off as a steep wall encrusted with massive brown pipe sponges. Some of us observed the reef from the glass-bottom boat, others with a mask and snorkel, and some with SC

    January 18, 2011

    Leaving the posh comfort of the Clipper Odyssey behind, our intrepid group struck inland into the great interior of Papua New Guinea; an area that has still been only partially explored by outsiders since its high valleys and ancient populations were first happened-upon in the middle of the last century.

    On Location: An Otherworldly Experience in the Asmat

    December 14, 2010

    The Asmat is an almost indescribable sight to behold. From the the fiercely painted warriors aboard canoes and the smoke-filled men’s house to the grass huts and meandering boardwalks built on stilts and throngs of scantily-clad men, women, and children, everything you see and experience is undoubtedly surreal for the Western traveler.

    Komodo Dragon, Komodo Island, Indonesia

    On Location: Komodo Island

    March 25, 2010

    We awoke to a beautiful day with a mirror calm surface to the sea and full sun, with a few perfect cotton wool clouds dotting the blue sky. Our ambition today was to see the fabled Komodo dragon which is carnivorous and can reach 12 feet in length. They have a range of nasty bacteria in their mouths and necrotising venom, the combination of which can kill large prey such as goats and deer.

    March 2, 2010

    In perfect Zegrahm style, we combined four expedition days in to one. The birders left when the moon was still full and bright, in search for the red bird of paradise. Jonathan was hopeful they’d see one or two red “bops” fly overhead. It wasn’t so…they saw 6 males and many females—truly beyond expectations!
