The small-ship cruise company Aqua Expeditions and NIHI Sumba (Luxury Beach Resort Indonesia/Private Villas) teamed up to create an adventure exploring the remote islands and seas of East Indonesia.
Adventures en route to Sumba Island, Aqua Blu visits Moyo Island (where passengers visit the secret waterfall), Gili Lawah Island (diving among manta rays), Padar Island (hiking to enjoy the views over Flores Island) and Horseshoe Bay (between Pulau Rinca and Pulau Kode) for observing the Komodo dragons in its natural habitat.
At NIHI Sumba, there's an activity for every taste like stand-up paddling down Wanukaka River, mountain biking in the jungles of Sumba, or joining a tour of Sumba Foundation projects. Swimming with the horses and rides on the shores of Nihiwatu beach is among the highlights of the adventure.
A blend of nautical and land-based explorations, the synergy between Aqua and NIHI is reflected in the focus on authentic, tailor-made experiences, merging unmatched levels of service with off-the-beaten-track adventures, locally inspired 5-star cuisine, and the finest comforts.
