Cruise and Dive to the Komodo

There is no shortage of magic in this far off place – everywhere you go is mesmerising. Here you can have a unique experience and meet the Komodo Dragons in their natural environment; the world’s largest lizard. A rare species to see in its natural habitat, over 2,500 live across the Komodo National Park which is made up of three main islands – Komodo, Rinca and Padar.

The famous Pink Beach of Komodo is another rare sight that you can visit when travelling the region it is one of only seven places in the world where you can visit a pink sand beach, and it is perfect for swimming and snorkelling. For scuba divers, Komodo attracts divers from all over the world who want to explore and swim alongside giant mantas, sea turtles, dolphins, dugongs and some of the oceans most overwhelmingly beautiful corals.  

The people of Komodo come from across many regions including Sape, Madura, South Sulawesi and Manggari and bring with them a variety of cultural influences and backgrounds. Many men make a living as a fisherman, and it is known as a place of simplicity, and you may experience women who are weaving or a traditional village welcome dance. A must-see in Indonesia.

Visitors must be sensitive in regards to the local people when walking around the island and in the villages. Tourists can be comfortable with covering up knees and shoulders and by using a beautiful sarong to cover swimwear. Visitors are warmly welcomed, and while not mandatory, it is much appreciated.  

Sailing this region will make sure you have the best possible view as you blissfully take in every sunrise and sunset with a tropical paradise as your backdrop. This is an adventure you won’t forget.

Can I rent a bareboat in Indonesia ?

No, unfortunately, the government does not allow bareboat. In some way, it is safer for you, as the maps are not always accurate in these remote areas. The captain with his crew will show you the best places.

Can I participate in the manoeuvres with the crew?

Yes, if you know how to sail and want to participate, you are welcome to help the crew.

In the Komodo, do the dragons are dangerous ?

No, there is a guard of the national park who stays with you taking care of yourself. If you are listening to him, it is safe

What is the Komodo Islands weather?

The high season is between May to end of October when it is not raining. Personally, my favourite time is at the end of the raining season when the islands are super green.

How do I get to the boat?

You will arrive in Labuan Bajo airportfor the Komodo.

A driver and the cruise director will be waiting for you at the exit of the airport and bring you to the marina. From there a dinghy will bring you on board.

It is only 1 hour flight from Bali with many flight per day

Does the Komodo National park is closed?

No, it has been a lousy rumour which made a lot of noise. It has been in the discussion if some part of the “Komodo island” should be partially close (just 1 island, not the national park)
The closing hasn’t been done, and we have at Yachting Experience better spots to observe the Dragons away from the crowed
