Join us on an island-hopping adventure as we explore the breathtaking waters and abundant marine life in and around Komodo National Park. This unique live-on-board swimming holiday in Indonesia represents SwimTrek at its pioneering best as we discover unforgettable swimming routes.
This trip is set in the heart of the Coral Triangle, which is home to six of the world’s seven marine turtles species, as well as 76% of the world’s coral reef species and 37% of the world’s coral fish species. This gives the Coral Triangle both the highest coral diversity and the highest coral fish diversity anywhere in the world. With much of this stunning reef and marine life sitting within metres of the surface, as swimming holiday really is the perfect way to explore this part of the world.
Our trip is based aboard Oceanic, our live-on-board yacht, which acts as both our accommodation and escort boat and allows us to travel to some of the most remote locations amongst this picturesque archipelago. It also gives us the chance to make changes to our itinerary when required in order to find the very best conditions and to complete a truly stunning selection of swim over the course of the week.
On top of the organised swims which are included in the trip itinerary, there is also plenty of time to take part in additional activities throughout the trip. These include shore excursions, snorkeling sessions before breakfast or after lunch, or guided scuba dives, which can be paid for locally during your trip.

I can’t imagine any other experience in the rest of my life being able to top what I experienced on the Komodo trip. Swimming alongside enormous turtles, close enough to touch was incredible. Seeing manta rays, reef sharks, lion fish and all the other types of sea life in their natural habitat is unbeatable. I can’t recommend it enough and may go again!Ruth H., Ireland
A trip of a lifetime, far exceeded expectations! The Boat, the guides, the crew, the marine life, the reefs, the hikes, the sunsets and the swimmers company! Just didn't want it to end - could've easily done another week!Monica B., Hong Kong
This one has it all- dragons, volcanoes, superb swimming through teeming tropical waters and a boat you will not want to leave!Joseph C., China
1 week aboard MY Oceania - swimming over coral, fish, turtles, manta rays, sharks- crossing channels, and circumnavigating islands with my fellow Swimtrek pioneers was a truly incredible experience. I can’t wait for my next Swimtrek adventure.Jane P., Australia
