3-DAY 2-NIGHT Komodo Liveaboard Tour

When you arrive for your Komodo Island boat tour, we’ll pick you up at the airport or your hotel in Labuan Bajo for three days of sailing on a traditional Phinisi ship, trekking, snorkeling, and celebrating on several local islands. Visit Kelor, Menierite, Padar, Kanawa, Gili Lawa, and, of course, Komodo Island to see the big guy at home. Along the way you’ll see superb views from mountains, stunning ocean fishes, multicolored corals, and thousands of fox bats soaring in the sky.
