So I said to the Whale ... Just Call me Ishmael.

A limited number of spaces are still available on the MV Evening Star II to join a scientific survey of Sperm Whales, other Oceanic Whales and Dolphins in the seas surrounding Komodo, Flores and Alor between October 5-19. This area, well-known as a migratory passage for Cetaceans (whales) is also home to some of the few existing traditional whaling societies to be found anywhere.

The MV Evening Star II is a hardwood vessel of 100 feet that has been especially refitted to offer custom made dive expeditions from a base near the Komodo national park. Skippered by Australian Mark Heighes, the ship offers an unbeatable way to explore the rich sea life of Indonesia's eastern islands.

This special working expedition in October is being organized with Mr. Benjamin Kahn, the lead investigator for the Indonesian Cetacean Research Program and will see the ship specially equipped with hydrophones - acoustic listening and locating devices.

Only 8 places are available on what will prove to be a working holiday. In the words of the organizers, "if you are looking for a cushy holiday, look elsewhere. While the services on the Evening Star are running as normal including fine food and good service, the research program will dictate the conduct of the trip. This is a trip for people interested in Cetaceans, marine research and who enjoy an active and adventurous holiday with a difference."

The survey will be divided into three zones: coastal, straits and passages, and oceanic. In addition to sea searches for the great mammals, the survey will also be conducting interviews and fisheries assessments in the whaling villages of Solor and Lamakera.

The cost of the program is US$ 2250 per person including domestic airfare from Denpasar to Maumere, Flores, the embarkation and disembarkation point for the expedition.
