Komodo boat tour Labuan Bajo to Lombok

4 Days

One of our more popular adventure tours is the Komodo boat tour and one can understand why. Not only do you get to meet the infamous Komodo Dragons face to face. You also get to spend 4 days and 3 nights on board boat stopping at a dazzling array of wonderful islands where you can discover waterfalls and swim and snorkel to your hearts content.

This is a trip that will suit all ages. The pace is leisurely and there is plenty of time for relaxing. The crew takes excellent care of you and the food on board is cooked fresh and there is plenty of it. The accommodation is however simple, you will be sleeping on deck and eating your meals together. But for most this adds to the true feeling of a real adventure and comradeship.

Cabin & deck available.

All our boats have a western toilet, sometimes also a squat one. For washing there’s a traditional mandi, a large water butt with a scoop (the water is salty).

Six bottles of water & tea & coffee are included but we recommend you take extra water, snacks (for between meals) & any beer or soft drinks you may need. These can be bought beforehand at any local supermarket or at the meeting point at Pandu Café. It’s a good idea to put your name of any drinks you purchase to save getting mixed up later.

We have a large store room on the boat where your main luggage is safely stored for the journey. Try to organize what you need for the journey in a separate small bag although you can access your luggage if necessary.

Is this trip good to take kids on to?

We’ve found kids have a great time on the trip. However keep a close eye on them at all times whilst snorkeling in case of any strong currents & bring suitably sized life jackets, masks & fins with you as they are not available. Plus listen to your guide carefully whilst on Komodo when visiting the dragons.
