Traversing through Komodo Islands via water is a favorite trip that tourists usually go for. Whether it’s by a small boat or a luxurious cruise, sailing through the seas around Komodo Islands area is sure can bring an unforgettable experience. For your convenience, I’m going to share some info about taking Komodo sailing trip for those who have never done it before.
Embarking on Komodo Sailing Trip needs extra preparations…
The trip duration varies, from a 1-day trip to 3 days and 2 nights and even longer depending on requests. The guest can choose to explore whether Komodo or Rinca island, you can actually choose to visit both but usually it takes longer than 3 days and therefore need special arrangements. Also, there’s no hotels or any place to stay the night at all throughout the Komodo islands so you are forced to sleep on the boat if your trip is longer than a day.
One thing that you should prepare before joining the Komodo Sailing Trip is your stamina and physique condition. There’s going to be a lot of outdoor activities like swimming, diving, exploring the island itself. Trekking the island especially can be really exhausting, and usually, the guide makes the guest go early in the morning to catch the sunrise. SO you should definitely get plenty of sleep before departing.
