The Komodo National Park rises as a new haven for passionate wildlife explorer and scuba diver enthusiast every year. The park comprises of 20+ small islands spread on the Flores Sea, situated in the eastern border of Indonesia. The land is rich with golden savannah fields and wild animals; counts on deers, water buffalos, horses, wild boars, and endemic birds. Two of the islands, Komodo and Rinca Island, are the home of the notorious Komodo Dragons, the only dragons you could find in the world. The water offers one of the best dive experience, with blooming corals and teeming fish. You could choose between day trip and liveaboard to experience the richness of the park. While both options are widely accessible, we think liveaboard provides best experience for Komodo exploration, and here’s why.
The Freedom of Not Thinking Anything
Have you ever travel without thinking about which train to take, what destination come next, and which route to decide? Unless you are a backseat passengers or arranged tour participant, probably not. A lot of our time on travelling is spent for navigating the maps and moving between destinations. Komodo liveaboard liberates you from such hassles, and that’s one of the best thing that comes from the package. Some liveaboard operators let you to arrange your own itinerary before departure. You only need to enjoy the journey as somebody do all the navigations, while still maintaining independency.
Rich Wood Interior Like No Other Liveaboard Ships
One of the best thing of sailing in liveaboard is the chance to relish in all-wood interior! In the world where most ships and cruises are made from lightweight composite materials like aluminium, carbon fibre, and fibre-reinforced plastics, it’s such a rare thing to see ships made almost entirely of wood. It’s like going back to the era of the pirates—or living off your own “Carribean Pirates” fantasy. The traditional designs is equipped with modern facilities and cosy rooms. Expect to see queen-size beds, air conditioned saloons, showers, and reclining patio seats.
Opportunity to Choose from Budget to Best Komodo Liveaboard
If you go to Labuan Bajo, the port town of Flores and the gate to the national park, you’ll see abundant choices of liveaboard. From budget liveaboard with shared rooms to the best liveaboard Komodo in the luxury lines, you have plenty to choose from!

Pay Once for All Access to the Entire Park
A huge plus of sailing with Komodo liveaboard is the advantage of staying inside the park for the whole time. That gives you lots of valuable time to visit more destinations and reach more secluded beaches. Taking the day trip means you have to go back to the starting point each day, spending a lot of time to just reach the next destination. Liveaboard could continue the journey from the last point it’s anchored on the night.
More Dives Opportunity than Day Trips
Liveaboard gives you the rare chance of early morning dive and night dive. This is simply something you can’t have on day trip!
