The legendary dragons of Komodo National Park are certainly not to be missed when Cruising Komodo. This UNESCO heritage site is now the only place in the world where you can see this prehistoric predator.
The Dragons are 8 – 10 feet (3 meters) in length and truly one of kind experience – especially when active during the morning hours. The rangers on Komodo and Rinca Island will take you on a guided trek around the mountains and savannas to encounter the worlds largest lizards in their natural and rare and fragile habitat.
Along the way, there is a good chance to spot other wildlife, such as horses, the Timor deer (the main prey of the Komodo), wild boars, fruit bats, over 30 species of birds and the hefty water buffalos cooling down from the days warmth in an even larger mud bath.
The island name “Flores” is derived from the Portuguese word for “flowers” – and the island and its surrounding formations are indeed blessed with magnificent landscapes of spectacular nature. Flores island and the Komodo islands are separated by the Flores Sea. Between them lies a string of islets, each one is blessed with breathtaking scenery and things to discover.
The channels between the islands are nutrient rich due to the many current-swept flows in the area and are home to a variety of Marine animals. Graceful Manta Rays are permanent residents in these waters and there is a high chance to encounter these gentle giants throughout the park. Furthermore, Dugongs, Dolphins, a variety of sharks and ray species regularly are spotted in the rich waters of the Komodo National Park.
Whether you like to dive or snorkel, the underwater scenery of Flores offers an array of special encounters.
Not to be over looked, Komodo National Park offers a excellent variety of beaches and bays to explore. Visit Padar, hike to its peak and enjoiy the magnificent view of its tri-color shores! Snorkel along a pink beach and take a break to sunbathe on the soft coral-hued grains. Enjoy a romantic beach sunset on the quiet shores of virgin sands or a family barbecue whilst snorkeling in between bites!
The cultural tours to the islands are a hallmark of our service and will leave a lasting impression – not only on your camera. The relaxed fishing villages are proud to give you an insight into their daily lives and their unique handicrafts will cement your memories.
Even though when cruising Komodo National Park, amazing flora and fauna can be found just a few meters beneath the surface, making snorkeling an excellent and fulfilling activity. But if you want to go deeper, diving opens up another world. With the best diving conditions between March and October, you can look forward to encounter amazing coral life, pelagic fishes like giant trevally, barracuda, and manta rays, black and white tip sharks, sometimes hammerheads and all kinds of rare nudibranchs like sea horses and frog fish.
From Bali’s International Airport it will take you only an hour to arrive in Labuan Bajo – the port city of Flores. Labuan Bajo is the gateway into Komodo National Park. At the moment domestic flights are available from from Jakarta and Bali, however it will open up to international flights from Singapore soon.
In general, cruises around Flores are possible all year round but the best weather conditions are April– October.
