Komodo

Komodo National Park encompasses Komodo Island and a number of other nearby islands.  This area provided wonderful scuba diving and generally wonderful cruising.  It was the first time since arriving in Indonesia that we had a chance to really slow down and just explore slowly between islands.  This is also the home of the Komodo dragons which are giant meat eating lizards up to 10 feet long.  Their usual prey are the deer and water buffalo that inhabit the islands but a few years ago a hiking tourist added to their diet.

Scuba diving on crystal rock we saw plate corals up to 8 feet across and giant clams a foot wide.  Hiking on peaceful Komodo gave us spectacular views over Ventana at anchor as well as other secluded anchorages nearby.
