Where to start & How much is your Komodo Boat Trip budget?

Labuan Bajo is the capital of Flores and the closest city to the Komodo National Park. There are direct flights from Bali that take approximately one hour. There are several airlines to choose from, and a return ticket costs around 1.000.000 IDR. Considering that the pandemic has ended, the price of plane tickets is getting higher and higher. The best way is to plan a sailing Komodo trip and look for ticket prices during the low season.

Make sure you know the best season to go before choosing the best Komodo boat trip package. In the Komodo National Park, you can dive all year. The dry season lasts from April to December, while the wet season lasts from January to March. 

Komodo liveaboard budget depends on the type of ship you choose. The cruise options to Komodo that you can choose from, are boat charters and group tours.

One of the first decisions to make is whether to join a regular tour or charter your own boat. Both options can be excellent, and it all comes down to your budget and availability. Based on the experience of travel in endemic times, the availability of boats to Komodo is somewhat difficult. You should really need to search and book Komodo liveaboard 1 month in advance.

If you are involved in the scuba diving community, you can also inquire directly with diving shops to see if they offer liveaboard trips. This may save you money because it is easier to negotiate rates and get a better deal.
