Discover Komodo and Rinca by private boat on a 5-day exploration tour. Sail through the most scenic parts of the archipelago and dive into the underwater world. Set foot on shore and get close up to the world-famous Komodo dragon.
What to Expect
Explore the Komodo archipelago on a 5-day excursion that takes you to the islands of Rinca and Komodo. You’ll meet up with the famed Komodo dragon, have lots of opportunities to snorkel along stunning coral reefs and enjoy beach time at Labuan Bajo.
Day 1: Labuan Bajo
On arrival you’ll be transferred to a pleasant beachfront hotel just outside the town. Swim, snorkel or just relax on the beach. You’ll also see why Labuan Bajo is famous for its amazing sunsets!
Day 2: Rinca
In the morning you’ll be transferred to the harbor where you’ll board your private boat for the tour. During the cruise you’ll make a snorkeling stop and then sail to an island where flying dogs live in the mangrove trees! In the afternoon you’ll take a walk around the island, enjoy the magnificent panoramic views and meet the majestic Komodo dragons!
Rinca is a place that sees fewer tourists than its neighbor Komodo and is one of the few places left in the world where these ancient animals can be found.
Return to the boat to sail to Pantai Merah, a magical place where you’ll find an amazing variety of beautiful shells. This is also the location of the most stunning coral reef in the area.
Spend the night on the boat and enjoy a delightful dinner on deck as a thousand stars shine down on you.
Day 3: Komodo
Today your tour continues with a sail to Padar Island, the third-largest island in the Komodo National Park. In the past, Padar was one of the islands that was home to the dragons. With the illegal hunting activities by humans, they slowly became extinct.
Although the island no longer is home to the dragons, it is one of the best spots for soft trekking. If you’re a fan of photography, this is perhaps the top place for spectacular photos with great views of 3 bays and many small islands.
In the afternoon you’ll be able to explore the island of Komodo, where you’ll once again see the dragons.
Day 4: Labuan Bajo
You’ll have plenty of time before returning to laid-back Labuan Bajo. Along the way you’ll have ample opportunity for snorkeling and experiencing the underwater world surrounding the different islets.
Spend the night in the same beachfront hotel in Labuan Bajo.
