Whale hunters
In the eat of Flores island we travel one hour or more by a Ferry to Lembata island and reach a special Village "Lamalera" that inherited the skill of whales hunter since year 1600. To hunt they used traditional  harpoon and hand made boat. They selected the old whales only and killed about 4 whales a years for one Village people consumption not for business purpose.

They depend their families life from the sea then from the land instead,  since the climate not supported the agricultures sector.

Whale huntersFrom Lamalera, Lembata island lets move eastward to the next Regency, Alor. In this island and surrounding a lots of spots for diving. Sea around Alor island were The World class Sea garden,  where we find sea biota and multi colors fishes under the crystal sea.   If Bunaken sea in North Celebes and Raja Ampat, Papua island  are well known as the best spots, Alor offer even more.

To reach the spots, we may fly from Ngurah rai, Bali air port to El tari, Kupang before proceeded to Mali, airport of Alor island. Or we may chartered boat either from Bali or Kupang, Timor island.
With a special structure and slow flow under the sea, these spots were the 2nd Top in The World after Caribbean archipelago.
