Boat to Rinca Island

Hi,

I would like to see the Komodo dragons during my trip to Bali in September but only have 2 full days to do so. I am thinking of flying from Denpasar to LabuanBajo at 9:00am via Transnusa Air Service by RIU572, take a boat to Rinca Island to see the dragons then back to LabuanBajo overnight at the Bintang Flores hotel. Next day fly back to Bali.

I arrive in LabuanBajo around 10:30am, is it easy to organize a boat tour to Rinca? Or is it best to make arrangements ahead of time/from abroad?

Many thanks

Yes, it's easy to organize a boat in Labuanbajo, but it take time, for negotiate the price, and when you make a deal, the boat need time get ready (re-feuling, etc.)

Therefore, it's better to make arrangements ahead, at least when you are in Bali, there are some travel agent selling tour to Komodo there.
