Comprises of more than twenty little islands spread on the gleaming water of Flores Sea, the Komodo National Park is blessed with countless beautiful coastline that lends itself to cruising. But the charming beaches are not the only attractions in Komodo. In this remote frontier hides the rare and last colony of ancient Komodo dragons, lively tropical birds, cheeky dolphins, rich marine lives, and vast savannah fields spread in tumultuous hills waiting to be explored. And the ticket to see it all lies in Labuan Bajo cruise, one of the most favourite transportation mode for getting into places around Komodo.
Cruises on Labuan Bajo, the port town of Komodo, are usually wooden based with no longer than 40 meter in length. Usually, they ranged from 28 to just 31 meter, with 6 – 7 meter in width. They might be significantly smaller than the typical cruises you would see, but these cruisers is comparable with the luxury of starred hotels. And they just complete the wild and wonderful Komodo in their on way; there’s nothing to suit Komodo’s landscape better than these teak vessels.
Labuan Bajo Cruise at A Glance
One Labuan Bajo cruise is usually capable of carrying put to 12 passengers with 5 -7 crews onboard including its captain and dive master, should diving is included in your plan. They are meant for small sized tour group to keep the luxury feeling. More often than not, these cruisers were booked for private sailing—and that’s the epitome of remote tropical gateway! Facilities are chic and luxurious though you probably would have difficulties connecting to the internet. Your room would be an en-suite, air conditioned cabins and beach patios on wooden deck where you can watch the seaside pass by.
Meals and Other Living Stuff
Meals and dining are such an atmospheric affair onboard Labuan Bajo cruise. Imagine to have warm breakfast ready in teak table, ocean-themed cutlery, and a vast scenery of Komodo’s gorgeous landscape openly displayed on the background. Breakfast is enjoyable with warm morning light and sparkling sea, while dinner is preceded with glazing sunset before you can tuck into hearty Indonesian dishes and fried rice.
With only one to four rooms, these cruises are the answer for a wish of intimate experience in far-flung destination, sailing from Labuan Bajo and back again. The sailing trip itself usually features the highlight of Komodo, such as Komodo dragons, the 360º viewpoint of Padar Island, Pink Beach, and Manta Point. The cruise, however, could further indulge you with rare and secluded destinations that probably would be difficult to reach in more mainstream accommodations.
