This is our first blog for our company, Coral Triangle Adventures, and we are going to start out with a bang! Our first trip took 11 snorkelers to Alor, Indonesia to explore some of the off-the-beaten-path reefs and cultures of the Solor and Alor archipelagoes. Our trip began in Bali, arguably one of the best places to begin a tour in all of Indonesia, where we caught a small plane to Maumere, eastern Flores to meet up with our boat, the Mermaid I. We sailed for ten days around the stunning islands that make up the eastern edge of the Lesser Sundas, seeing some amazing sights that included steam-spewing volcanoes (yes, plural as there were three!), the war and greeting dances of the Alor hill tribes, and simply spectacular reefs and critters. With its shallow reefs and black sand, this area easily became one of our top destinations for access to an amazing number of wonderful critters usually seen only by SCUBA divers.
