KOMODO BOAT CHARTER
4 DAYS 3 NIGHTS
Private Komodo Boat Charter From Labuan Bajo
You will explore more islands and beaches located outside and inside the Komodo National Park perimeter. Our Komodo Boat Coordinator will be ready to discuss with you if you want a special itinerary that suits your preferences. In principle, these 4 days Flores Komodo Tour will not be rushed and force you to jump from one destination to another in a short time. If you are the type of person who prefers to relax on the boat while enjoying the beautiful scenery, snorkel on a small exotic island or empty beaches, we can possibly arrange that. Or perhaps you are the more curious type who wants to explore every iconic island and beach scattered throughout the Komodo National Park and visit as many spots as possible, then we can work with that as well. Of course, we will produce an efficient itinerary according to your flight's departure and return schedule as well. There are three options so that your 4 Days 3 nights Komodo boat charter will run smoothly:
First option: You begin with a stay at one of the hotels in Labuan Bajo the day before your 4 Days 3 nights Komodo Trip start, and then after you return from the sailing, you stay again one more night at the hotel. This is the most effective choice that our previous guests mostly took. Our car driver will pick you up early in the hotel at around 9:00 a.m in the morning and then he will take you directly to our Komodo Boat that already standby at the harbor. Travel time from the hotel to the port is approximately 15-20 minutes. If you want to visit a liquor store or any type of store to buy something, just ask our driver he will be happy to accommodate you.
Second option: You may also start your 4 Days Komodo Boat Trip immediately once you’re landed at the Komodo Airport. Our car driver will standby and pick you there and bring you to our Komodo Boat to the harbor. But please make sure that your flight arrival schedule is the first flight or morning flight (from Jakarta or Denpasar Bali) so that your Komodo boat trip schedule on the first day can be fully maximized. If you can’t obtain the first flight schedule, we still can wait until no more than 2.30 p.m. After sailing, our boat will return to the harbor around 4 or 5 p.m, and our car driver will be waiting for you at the port to take you back to your hotel so that you can rest and have a proper shower, probably enjoy the Labuan Bajo night culinary market, and continue to catch your flight back the next day without hassle.
Third option: It’s also possible that we arrange a special itinerary if you arrive by plane on the same day of your 4 days 3 nights Komodo boat trip, and after completing the trip on the fourth day, we will immediately return you back to the airport to catch your return flight. We strongly recommend that your return flight schedule should be at least around 2 pm or later so that our boat has time to return to the port earlier than usual.

KOMODO BOAT CHARTER ITINERARY
Your 4 Days Private Komodo Boat Charter will begin at Labuan Bajo Harbour at 9.15 AM to go to two beautiful spots, Bidadari Island or Angel Island and Kelor Island. Your main activity will be snorkeling and relaxing on the beach. Both of these islands are famous for beautiful colorful fishes, white soft sand and amazing crystal clear water. Kelor island famous for its breathtaking ocean scenery and also there’s a hiking trail for you to see the whole island from above. The place is tranquil and uninhabited. There is no Komodo dragon on both of these islands. Our chef will provide you breakfast, lunch, and refreshments on the boat.
The third spot for this 4 Days 3 Nights Komodo Boat Charter Tour will visit Kalong Island near sunset hour. It’s the place where thousands of huge bats and they will start to come from their nests at 6 pm. This island has no beach so this place is not a suitable place for swimming. After sunset, our Komodo Boat will begin its journey to the last anchor spot at Waenilu Island. This place is a safe bay area and the water is calm as a lake. You will spend one night at this Island, sleeping on the boat.
On the second day of your 4 Days 3 Nights Private Komodo Boat Charter Tour, you will proceed to Rinca Island or Loh Buaya. There is a small pier and our crews will bring you there using a small dinghy. Right at the pier, one of the Ranger from the National Park will greet you and accompany you to Rinca Island's ticketing office. In the ticketing office, you will buy your Komodo National Park Tickets, and after you purchase the tickets, the Ranger will explain to you about the options for the Komodo dragon tour trekking. There are three options. A short trek that will take time around 45 minutes to 1 hour, the medium trek will take time around 1 hour to 1.5 hours, and long trekking that will take 2 hours or more. Komodo Dragon in Rinca island or Loh Buaya is a lot more active compared to one in Komodo Island or Loh Liang. Sometimes you can also see at cattle, buffalo, monkeys, deers, partridge, etc.
After you finish your Komodo dragon tour, the sail continues to the Padar Island. Padar island is a remote island located exactly in the middle of the Komodo National Park, between Rinca Island and Komodo Island. The island is defended by strong ocean currents originating from the Indian ocean. There is a wild Komodo Dragon on this island too, but you don't need to worry, because the Komodo Dragon is located in a specific area that is well guarded by professional rangers. Rumors also say that the island also contains gold ores, which makes the story of this island more mysterious and exotic. One hour Komodo trekking to the top of Padar Island and you can see the entire Komodo National Park area clearly. Prepare sunblock, sunglasses and trekking sandals or trekking shoes to explore this magical island. Don't spend too much time on Padar Island, because after that you will want to freshen up yourself after exhausting trekking and climbing under the sun and snorkel at Pink Beach.
On the third day of your Komodo Boat Charter Tour, after breakfast, the Komodo Boat will head to the longest reef in the Komodo National Park named Karang Makassar or famously called Manta Point. The reef is shallow, 2 meters up to 8 meters deep, but with a very strong current, and that’s the reason why the magnificent Manta rays gather to eat the plankton. Currently, there is a new regulation being implemented by the Komodo National Park officials that require we as a Komodo Boat Charter provider to register our ship in advance (three days before) to visit Manta Point and it will only be limited to 30 ships a day, based on the first-come-first-serve method. If we are unable to obtain the permit slot to visit Manta point, we will direct the itinerary to go to Turtle point on Siaba Island, as an alternative. You will spend a night at Gili Lawa Dara Island or Siaba Island, snorkeling and relaxing on the beach and on the boat. Our crews will prepare lunch, snacks, dinner, and refreshments.
On the fourth day or final day of your 4 days Komodo Boat Charter Trip, you will relax first at Siaba island, there's no need to rush. Our crew will provide you a delicious breakfast. after that, the Boat will head to Sebayur island and right after that also to Kanawa Island. The beach on both of these islands is the best place to snorkel. The coral reefs, fishes and the beach itself are really beautiful. The water is very clear and the coral reefs are amazing. Lots of starfishes and crabs on the sand, your kids are going to love them. At Kanawa Island, the beach is shallow and safe for children as well. Sail back to Labuan Bajo around 3 p.m and arrives around 4 p.m, our driver will wait at the harbor to bring you back to your hotel or airport.
