Unlike earlier in the year when the water in Horseshoe Bay is cold with poor visibility, we’ve experienced stunning conditions in November and December with warm clear blue water. Our plan is to maximize our time in South Komodo and Horseshoe Bay at sites you don’t usually visit mid-year.
This trip will start in Maumere on Flores Island and head west toward Komodo. Due to the warmer water and clearer conditions we may spend up to 5 days in Horseshoe Bay. From there we’ll head north to Tatawa Besar & Gili Lawa Laut, then on to Banta and Sangeang before ending the trip in Bima.
With its incredible mixture of both wide angle and macro photo opportunities you’ll never be at a loss for something to shoot.
