Besides that, Komodo National Park is renowned for its breathtaking views, crystal-clear beaches, and unparalleled terrestrial and marine ecosystems. No wonder Komodo National Park is a gem destination for travelers who want to experience a thrilling holiday that can’t be found anywhere else. 

Why Choose a Boat Tour to Komodo Island 

You can only reach the island by taking a Komodo Island boat tour from Labuan Bajo harbor. You have the options between chartering a private boat, taking an on-the-spot boat, or joining a guided tour. The guided tour usually provides a one-day trip by speed boat or a 3D2N (Three Days and Two Nights) trip on a Phinisi boat.  

If you want a satisfying experience, we recommend you choose a boat trip to Komodo Island by sailing on a luxurious Phinisi boat by KomodoLuxury for a minimum of 3D2N (Three Days and Two Nights). Below are the reasons why you have to choose a boat tour for Komodo Island. 

1. Witnessing Komodo in Komodo and Rinca Island

The main attraction of this park is the ancient Komodo dragons that can be only found in Komodo and Rinca Island. The best time to witness the Komodo dragon in their natural habitat is in the morning and late afternoon because they are more active during these times.

Thus, the chance of seeing Komodo dragons is higher if you stay overnight on a boat. If you travel to the island by speedboat from Labuan Bajo, it will take about two to three hours, making it neither effective nor efficient.
