SUP Wilderness Adventures SUP Camp in Indonesia Program

Dive, SUP, snorkel, and hike during the day. It's totally up to you how little or how much you do. Just be sure to have a camera as the scenery is nothing short of spectacular. At night, laze on deck under a starry sky and listen to traditional folk tales being recounted before planning the next day of fun.

The crew will take you to hidden coves, uninhabited islands and reefs where the coral gardens are crowded with turtles and manta rays. Those with SUPs can paddle to their heart's content and in the evenings, meet on the water for sunset SUP and sip sessions. Those who are keen to encounter Komodo dragons will get their chance when you visit Rinca or Komodo Island and do a half day hike. You're also likely to see deer, wild boar, and monkeys while you follow the ranger across the desolate looking island to a look out across the sea. On the final day, you will bid farewell and return to the airport to catch a flight back to Bali, Lombok, or elsewhere.

Project overview

Ocean-borne trash is a serious issue for much of the world. Indonesia is both the recipient and the creator of the problem, with plastic trash seen throughout Komodo National Park. For this adventure, you'll be joining forces with local volunteer group Trash Hero. They organize weekly cleanups around Komodo and run an educational program to encourage recycling. Although much of your work will occur in far-flung places, you will be bringing the trash you collect back into town for proper sorting and disposal. In exchange for their assistance, a cash donation will be made to Trash Hero to help cover their operational costs.

In 2017, SUP Wilderness Adventures collected 149 kilograms of plastic trash from a beach frequently visited by tourists. The majority of that trash was there because of the tourists, so they set about cleaning up. 90 minutes later, the number of volunteers had swelled from nine to 20 and 14 large sacks of rubbish stood ready for transport. They have also partnered with Manta Watch, so you will receive a briefing from them before attempting to secure new Manta IDs for the database. Who knows you may even get to name a manta that you're the first to ID.

Note: Fitness level is moderate.

Location

Komodo National Park

The spectacular Komodo National Park is located in the center of the Indonesian archipelago, between the islands of Sumbawa and Flores. Established in 1980 to conserve the unique Komodo dragon, the park has expanded to protect the terrestrial and marine biodiversity of this remarkable place. In 1986, the park was declared to be a World Heritage Site and a Man and Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO. Both of these designations indicate the park's biological importance and qualify Komodo as a true bucket list destination.

Komodo National Park comprises three major islands (Komodo, Rinca, and Padar), as well as numerous smaller islands extending across an area of 1,817 kilometers. As well as being home to the Komodo dragon, the park provides refuge for many other terrestrial species, such as buffalo, deer, monkeys, and an endemic species of rat.

Komodo National Park preserves one of the world's richest marine environments. It features over 260 species of reef-building corals, 70 species of sponges, and more than 1,000 species of marine fish. Giant manta is commonly seen, as are turtles, dolphins, dugong, and whales.
