Bali to Komodo National Park

DEPARTING FROM:BaliFINAL DESTINATION:Labuan Bajo

DURATION:8 Days/ 7 NightsREGION:AsiaSHIP:Aqua Blu

Located in the Coral Triangle between the major landmasses of Sumbawa to the west and Flores to the east, the waters of Komodo National Park are embraced by fast flowing currents from the Indian Ocean and warm tropical Indonesia seas enriched with volcanic nutrients. The result is a vibrant marine environment home to more than 1,000 species of fish, including the manta ray, sea turtles and mola mola (ocean sunfish), as well as over 200 species of coral. From shore to shore, the sheer number of marine life makes this region endlessly rewarding for both divers and non-divers alike.

Complemented by a sunny and idyllic tropical climate, Komodo National Park’s variety of land and sea experiences makes cruising an ideal way to discover the region. Built to world-class luxury cruising specifications, the speed, stability and long-range capabilities of the Aqua Blu expedition ship promise five-star comfort, utmost exclusivity and an unrivalled immersiveness in the Park’s natural wonders. Access otherwise hard-to-reach marine sites and trekking routes where nature and wildlife flourish, often without another boat or human in sight. Aqua Blu sails every year from April to September, the best season to discover the islands of Indonesia.

The fully-redesigned Aqua Blu sets the stage for the greatest luxury cruise expeditions in Asia's Coral Triangle. Presenting a brand-new cruise experience in the pristine East Indonesian Archipelago, Aqua Blu is a long-range explorer yacht sailing the region’s most prized destinations, including Komodo National Park, Spice Islands and Raja Ampat on unforgettable seven and 12-night expedition itineraries.
 
With a grand legacy as the former British Naval Explorer HMS Beagle and later as the private yacht of a European aristocratic family, Aqua Blu is a compelling maritime statement. A 2019 refurbishment overseen by Dutch yacht design maestro Cor D. Rover brings the vessel to world-class cruising specifications. Expeditioners can expect to embrace an distinguished sense of history and seafaring evolution when they set foot on this one-of-a-kind cruise ship. Inside the four-deck, 15-suite Aqua Blu, Cor has tastefully paired with a brass-and-ivory interior theme with generous and inviting indoor and outdoor social spaces, including a sun deck.
 
Faster, further, greater safety and comfort — Aqua Blu’s naval pedigree makes it the perfect candidate to navigate East Indonesia’s vast seas. Having attained the highest international classifications (RINA, SOLAS, ISM) in safety, the vessel is additionally equipped with Quantum Zero Speed stabilisers for optimal comfort at rest or while sailing.
