Komodo cruise and dragons!

The best way to discover Komodo National park is undoubtedly on a cruise boat. We created this trip alongside local boat captains to propose the best possible price to the travellers. These boats are made of wood and are simple, but it's very safe and the crew is very helpful and always smiling. The food on board is also extremely good! This kind of trip is perfet for couples or families who want to discover the famous komodo dragons but also the incredible submarine life.
