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 to visit during your trip.
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, are the dragons dangerous?
No, there is a guard from the national park that assists you during your stay and he ensures your safety. If you follow his guidance, it is safe.
What is the weather like in the Komodo Islands?
The high season is between May to end of October when it is not raining. Personally, my favorite time is at the end of the rainy season when the islands are super green.
How do I get to the boat?
You will need to arrive at Labuan Bajo airport.
To get to the Komodo island, there are 7 daily direct flights connecting Labuan Bajo, Flores to Denpasar, Bali. The flight takes 1 hour and 30 minutes.
There are 2 flights leaving Jakarta, Java and it takes 2 hours and 30 minutes. From Surabaya, Java it is 2 hours.
We recommend to book via:

A driver and 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.
Is the Komodo National park closed?
No, this was only a rumour. It has been in discussion that some parts of the Komodo island should be partially closed (just 1 island, not the national park).
The closing hasn’t been done, and we at Yachting Experience know the best spots to observe the Dragons away from the crowd
