Open trip Komodo sailing trip
Sailing to Komodo island and its surroundings by boat charter means you will stay on board for the duration of the cruise. Komodo sailing trip agencies will usually offer open trip packages with several boat options that you can choose from. Don’t be fooled by the cheap price! Pay close attention to the type of ship, cabin that you will be staying in during the cruise, itinerary, and other facilities. Sometimes they don’t provide detailed information and your cruise becomes a nightmare.
It’s all based on different specifications, capacities, and facilities from standard to luxury Komodo liveaboard. For open trip, there are boats with no cabin and no aircon and definitely not recommended because of the comfortable and safety reasons.
During the high season and the opening of tourism to international markets after the pandemic, Komodo liveaboards are limited. We always urge you to prompt booking to secure your boat. Sometimes you can’t get a boat at all. What you need to know about open trips is that you will be joining foreigners during the cruise. There is a possibility that you will sleep with other people in the same cabin.
Private boat charter Komodo
This type of private boat charter Komodo package is intended more for small and large groups. Boat options will vary depending on your group’s budget. Standard boats to luxury liveaboard Komodo offer different facilities and prices. Comfort during the cruise is important.
You have to remember that this is a floating hotel and you can’t change rooms like in a regular hotel. Don’t try to book a Komodo last-minute private boat charter. You will not get the ship you want.
Komodo sailing trips are a favorite of domestic and foreign tourists, whether they are open or private trips. Make sure to plan ahead as you may have to spend 1 month on the perfect cruise vacation trip.
How to get to Komodo National Park?

Once you arrive at Labuan Bajo you will notice that is really is one of the tiniest towns you’ll ever visit. If you pick up the package from the agency, they will pick you up from the airport and drop you off at your hotel before the cruise starts. After staying 1 night in Labuan Bajo, your Komodo sailing trip will start in the morning and explore the islands, see Komodo dragons, trekking, snorkeling, and diving.
You can book your Komodo boat tour while in Labuan Bajo. But don’t expect more to get a Komodo private boat charter according to your wishes. Be prepared to negotiate on price! We recommend booking in advance if you are short on time or have specific dates that you need to travel.
