Planning your first Komodo Island tour
I won’t getting too much specific in explaining what you need to be done. But, I’ll make sure that even I will inform them all in short descriptions, you will still get the beneficial and valuable information related to the Komodo Island tour. Moreover if you are the first timer. So, read and follow along all the lists below to get the best adventure ever.
1. Getting to Komodo Island
I think most of the travellers that were coming to Komodo Island mostly take a flight from Bali and Jakarta. And then, the flight will be landed on the Labuan Bajo airport where this small city as the first or even the main gate for your Komodo Island tour.
Most of the adventure will be started from Labuan Bajo and also ended there.
2. Rent a boat from a month before
If you are not using the travel agent for your Komodo Island tour, then it is better to get the information about the boat’s owner or operator. It is because the Komodo Island itself located at the different island from where your flight is landed. But not only that, since many of the islands are surrounding the Komodo Island, you will also have more chances to visit them if you could rent a boat.
You don’t need to rent a boat just for yourself since it will be more expensive. So, simply find the boat operator online and make sure your name is in their list for the next. It means that you will share the space at boat with other visitors to get more cheaper in cost.
Why you need to rent the boat a month before? There might be many visitors at the same date with you later, moreover on the high season where even the available boats could not serve all the travellers. So, the sooner you make a deal with your transportation operator, the higher chance you will exploring the Komodo Island for later.
3. Find the Komodo liveaboard package
Since your Komodo Island tour will involve many or least some of the islands around, it will be better to stay, sleep, live and explore the islands on the boat. There are many of the Komodo liveaboard packages on the web, but the only one of my recommendation would be the travel agent from Hello Flores. You will be provided with various, unique, and traditional boat designs to accompany you while exploring through the islands. And also could help you in making your own itineraries in case you may find it confusing.

Regardless of your itineraries, you should make your own priority about some main things to do while experiencing the Komodo Island tour. It is because there are dozens things you can do at there. You can do diving and snorkeling, monitoring the Komodo dragons, visiting the waterfall, get yourself to Manta Point and many more.
