After our amazing trip to Komodo, we have decided to publish a practical and inspiring guide to help you plan your dream trip to Komido National Park and enjoy nature in all its glory. In this post, we have compiled a list of things you need to know before you embark on your first sailing trip to Komodo Island. Once there, you can start your sailing trip to Labuan Bajo Komodo, one of Indonesia’s most popular tourist destinations. Once on Komodo Island, visit Komoodo National Park to meet the famous Komodo dragons.
What to See on Sailing Trip Labuan Bajo
There is also the possibility to enjoy a relaxing experience on a boat and enjoy various views of Komodo National Park. The Komodo dragons are the main attraction of the national park, but snorkeling and diving on Komodo Island is the second most important attraction and attracts many travelers every year.
If you are planning a sailing trip to Labuan Bajo, you might want to add a trip to Komodo to your to-do list. So here is a great opportunity to sail from Bali on Komodo Island to this beautiful Indonesian island and visit the legendary Komodo National Park. Before returning to Labuan Bajo, a visit to Kanawa Island is also a must, as you can hike on Padar Island, swim with manta rays and snorkel on the Pink Beach, one of Indonesia’s most popular tourist destinations.
I would recommend you to spend a few days in the area where you can sail, as there is so much to see and do. I would say to make a day trip from Labuan Bajo to Komodo Island from Bali or a two-day sea trip from Kedah Island. It takes about 2 hours to get to Labuan Bajo from Komodo Island, although it could be described as a “day trip.”
Preparing for the Sailing Trip
A flight ticket from Denpasar to Labuan Bajo costs aboutIDR 850,000, but given the cost of a direct flight to Labuan Bajo and then a 2-day sea trip from Kedah Island, I think it is more convenient and cheaper to fly directly from Labuan Bajo to Komodo Island from Bali and then make the 2-day trip there. If your sailing trip is to end at 1 p.m., it is possible to take a flight to Labuan Bajo from 3 p.m. onwards. However, if you wish to leave Labuan Bajo on the same day that your trip ends, it is advisable to book your departure time later than 5 pm.
We would suggest you book an early morning excursion for the sailing trip Labuan Bajo so that you can arrive at Komodo Airport around noon and still enjoy the park. You can book everything in advance and start your journey to Komododo Island to save time and energy. Just make sure you know when and how much your flight costs and whether there is a direct flight from Denpasar Airport to Labuan Bajo. There are many other options for your summer sailing trip from Labuan Bajo, but we would suggest you book this early in the morning so that you arrive in time for the start of the day.

Budget Consideration for the Sailing Trip Labuan Bajo
Before you plan the cost of your trip to Komodo Island, remember that speedboat tours are more expensive than wooden boats. When you talk to the captain of the boat, try to ask him or her about the speed of your boat and do not forget to apply for a ticket to enter the Komodo National Park.
