Following my misersble adventure on Rinca I had high hopes on Komodo. Because we slept on board and arrived at island 8am ish.
Yes dragons should be more active. Compared to Rinca Komodo is more forest. I saw 4 at the watering hole. 1 at...More
We did the mid-length tour (they have short, medium, and long walks available). We were very interested in seeing the dragons, so in hindsight, we would have preferred to do the long walk, but nobody consulted us.
We had a really excellent guide with the...More
You can get cool pictures and see the dragons, but it’s pretty lame as far as an adventure. Packed trails with throngs of tourists. The hike, besides the dragon viewing spots, are a waste of time because of trampled nature and some dead palm trees....More
The Komodo island offers a great experience of the wild jungle. The walk through the national park allows you to experience the rich biodiversity of this area. It is worth enjoying this walk without getting overly distracted by the urge to see its most famous...More
We visited Kimoto Island from a cruise ship on an organized tour with a couple hundred of our new best friends. It was HOT.
People from the ship were organized into groups of about sixteen people. Each group had a tour guide to narrate our...More
Seeing the Komodo Dragons is a unique experience. They are no where else in the world. If you had the chance, why would you not take it?
We were on a tour off of a ship and it was good. Komodo Island is hot and...More
I arrived on the Holland America Amsterdam cruise ship at noon on Friday, Nov 16, 2018. Half a dozen kids were brought by local adults to the ship on canoes to beg for money to be tossed overboard to them. Our ship crew reminded us...More
It was great to see these animals, but they were all located right at the ranger station. We saw them in the first 5 minutes on the island and then we did a hike after. We didn't see any more. The hike was nice, but...More

Are you arriving in Flores by boat?Most of the tours are done from Labuan Bajo by small boat but if you are on a cruise liner doing the islands then yes you can get off at Komodo or Rinca and they will do a tour for you right there and then with plenty of guides just waiting for the boats to arrive.You have to pay an entrance fee to enter any of Komodos islands and then a nominal guide fee.There really isnt too much to see on either island and Rinca has the most dragons.We saw maybe 10 on Rinca and only 2 on Komodo.My suggestion would be if you are getting off the boat in Labuan Bajo,find a tour operator who does a 2 day,1 night trip and you will see some outstanding sights other than just the dragons.Padar Island is a must with spectacular views.Komodo National Park is stunning
2D1N Rinca/Komodo island tour , 800,000 IDR okay ??? (8 Replies)
Hi guys, Need some advice regarding shared cabin boat to komodo/rinca island. We will be heading to labuan bajo soon. Was wondering if 800,000 IDR/pax is a fair price to pay for 2day 1night komodo/rinca island tour , including meals....but excluding national park entrance and snorkeling gears. The itinerary include the standard rinca, komodo, kalong island, pink beach and kanawa. Just wanna know whats the 'market price' now for 2d1n package from labuan bajo, so that we have some rough...More

My husband and I did a private (just the two of us) 4D/ 3N liveaboard trip with gotokomodo for ~4,000,000 IDR/ person (~$320 USD) which included the National Park entrance fees, snorkeling gear, all meals, and the final night in a nice hotel in Labuan Bajo. If you break it down per night, we paid about 1.3million IDR/ night versus your 800,000 IDR, so I'd say that's in the price range. I'm sure the price is also based on how nice a boat you are on and how fancy your meals are. The entrance...More
one day tour to see dragons (2 Replies)
will be arriving on cruise boat in March. Is there a tour company I can contact for a tour of the Komodo island? Thanks

My suggestion would be to fly to Labuan Bajo, arrange a boat from there and stay the night. Arrange for your boat to leave early in the morning ie 4-5am. Watching the sun rise over the islands as you travel to Komodo Island is just as amazing as seeing the dragons in their natural habitat.

Hi, My husband & I arrive at Komodo Island on Ocean Princess on October 24th 2013, for 9 hrs. Is it possibe to post a message on Tripadvisor asking if any passengers from the ship would like to make up a group of 8 for a private guided tour on the Island. I find your site so informative, and know it is read by loads of people. Regards Jean Whitmore
