We had a great experience with Red Whale. The booking process was seamless, they picked us up from our hotel without trouble,our guide Hugo the dive master was very knowledgeable and helpful throughout the day. We saw everything we wanted to including komodo dragons, manta rays and turtles. We also had an intimate speed boat owned by Red Whale which made it easier. Definitely the best tour group on the island.

With terrible weather in the area we were fortunate to get out for a day trip and we were even luckier to choose Red Whale. With their virtually brand new boat and helpful staff we embarked on a 10 hour single day trip taking in all the main sights; Komodo dragons, a pink beach, Padar and the 3 bays, snorkeling with sightings of turtle, a reef shark and the most majestic manta, not to mention the 1000's of other reef dwellers. The 2 local guides (Hugo and Andre) were excellent. Snorkeling equipment for all although would recommend asking for life jacket if not the strongest swimmer. Because of the weather we didn't do their standard tour this was made up of what they could do and it was fantastic - yes it was whistle stop but we saw everything we could ask for.

Hello! Thank you for choosing Red Whale! We are glad to hear that our services met your expectations! Although the weather went bad, we strive to give the best for our customers by giving the best alternative destinations out of our normal itinerary. January & February are not the best months to visit Komodo National park, the two months are the peak of the windy and rainy season in Indonesia. The weather will get calmer at the beginning of March. You are very lucky to see the reef shark! The reef sharks are rarely seen on the snorkeling trips compared to the turtles and the majestic mantas due to their shy nature, most of them will swim away once they spotted any human. Hands down for Hugo and Andre, they surely know how to get their jobs done! Komodo National Park is enchanting just the way it is, we are just ensuring that all of our customers get the everlasting moment here by providing a well-maintained boat, a full set of snorkeling equipment, and safety equipment (life vest and ring buoy). We wish you a great day! Looking forward to having you again with us in Labuan Bajo! Best regards, RED WHALE TEAM

If you’re looking for a safe, fun and efficient way to see as much as you can i highly recommend Red Whale. They were on time, reliable and very organized. All the guides and boat staff were helpful. We did the 6 stops/ day tour and saw Padar island, Komodo island, pink beach, swam w manta rays, turtles and a sand bay.

Hello, Thank you for choosing and recommending Red Whale! We are very happy that you enjoyed our services!! We tailored our daily Komodo speedboat tour program as best as we can to ensure the safety, time-efficient, fun atmosphere, and maximum experience for our guests. Our boat crews are surely the best in doing their jobs. The 6 destinations that we visit on a day (Padar Island, Pink Beach, Komodo Island, Manta Point, and Turtle Bay) are the best that we can pick among other great destinations on the Komodo National Park. Have a great day! We hope to have you again with us in Labuan Bajo! Best regards, RED WHALE TEAM
