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.

We’ve found kids have a great time on the trip.

Plus listen to your guide carefully whilst on Komodo when visiting the dragons.
