Sea Safari VII's primary itinerary focuses on diving in Komodo National Park which sits at the heart of the intersection between five major ocean currents, making it one of the most bio-diverse places in the world. The park is home to more than 1,000 species of fish, 385 species of reef building corals, 70 species of sponges, 10 dolphin species, six whale species, giant sea turtles, dugongs, and various species of sharks and rays.
The underwater terrain ranges from thrilling vertical walls and pinnacles to tranquil sandy flats. The marine life provides a broad spectrum of experiences from heart-pounding encounters with man-tas and other large pelagic down to the total satisfaction of spotting tiny pygmy seahorses.
The diving coupled with the scenery through the “ring of fire” makes this one of the most exciting dive itineraries going. We will have an opportunity to visit the komodo national park as well as other “deserted” islands and beached.
In 1992 Komodo was declared a World Heritage Site.
The Sardine Run - a unique and unexplained phenomenon of millions of sardines traveling up the east coast of South Africa occurring from May to July, causing a frenzy of excitement amongst everyone and everything that comes into contact with them.
This is an event for everyone to enjoy - be it bird watchers, marine-life enthusiasts, amateur or highly experienced divers or snorkelers. Experience the Sardine Run beneath the waves or above. Either way it has been described as one of the greatest marine spectacles on earth.
