Relax on-board our Oceanic motor yacht in comfortable rooms and on large deck areas, with meals cooked fresh by our very own chef
Join us on an island-hopping adventure as we dive into gorgeous Indonesian waters and meet the abundant marine life of Komodo National Park. This unique live-on-board swimming holiday represents SwimTrek at its pioneering best as we meander through itineraries of 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 turtle 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, a swimming holiday really is the perfect way to explore this part of the world.
Our trip is based aboard M/Y 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 parts of this archipelago. It also gives us the chance to make changes to our itinerary when required - to find the very best conditions and complete a truly stunning selection of swims 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, snorkelling sessions before breakfast or after lunch, or guided scuba dives, which can be paid for locally during your trip.
Who is this trip for?
This trip is for experienced open water swimmers who want to explore the reefs and islands that surround and make up the Komodo National Park in Indonesia. Some of the swims may be challenging due to local weather conditions and currents, so it is important that swimmers are comfortable in these situations.
Swimmers should have a basic understanding of open water swimming and be capable of completing the average swim distance and average daily swim distance (over the course of two swims) prior to the start of the trip.
The average swim distance is around 2.5km. The average daily swim distance is around 5km.
