We booked with Alba Cruises the night we arrived in Labuan Bajo and we're pleased to see that they could accommodate us for the following morning. We were promptly picked up at 5.30am in the morning and taken to the point where we boarded our boat. The boat wasn't what I expected as was rather small (they use two boats, one for under 12 people and another larger boat for anything up to 34ppl), but was comfortable enough and has a bathroom on board. 20mins into our journey we hear alarm bells ringing and they advised the second engine had stopped working. Long story short, after sitting on the boat for what would have been 3+ hours waiting for them to fix it, they decided to cancel the trip and to make it up to us, took us Kelor Island (on the one engine) for snorkeling. Luckily we were able to go again the next day (for no extra charge) and they also took us out to dinner to make up for the wasted day. The next day went smoothly although we weren't able to make it to Taka Makassar or Manta Point as the weather was not good. Lunch is provided and very tasty, they also provide endless water supply (bottled water) and snacks in between as it is a long day (5.30am to 4pm). Drivers pick you up and drop you home so really convenient. The guides speak good English and for young chaps, manage the day and the adversities the weather can bring. I would have rated them 4 if the first day engine troubles hadn't happened. The spots they take you too are gerogeous and the staff are really attentative. Prices are high but seems the going rate and you are out the full day with lunch, snacks and water. We booked through an agency and the cost was IDR 1.2m/pp plus entrance fees to Komodo - higher on a Sunday so can range from IDR 270k to 325k/pp.

Overall a nice experience. We did a full day tour. Guide and crew were great. Only suggestion is for when snorkeling at Manta Point: People got into the water but ended having to swim a ways away. A few slow swimmers or stragglers were exhausted and the boat moved ahead of with the faster swimmers, leaving behind the slow ones and those who had to stop to adjust their snorkels or fins. Would make sense for the boat to pull buoy for those who might need it or at lease move along with the people behind the group.

How much are Komodo National Park fees?

Komodo National Park fees are complicated. They depend on: the islands visited (which is weather dependent), whether it's a weekday or a weekend, whether the guest is a foreigner or a local, and the number of people on the boat (as ranger fees are shared). This is why no two people will tell you the same number when asked about fees!

The fees are also complicated by the fact that they're set by the national government and paid directly to Jakarta. So there is little visibility on changes from time to time.

This is why we usually advise international guests to bring cash of between IDR 350K to IDR 460K per person per day for weekdays and between IDR 400K to IDR 520K per person per day for weekends. This is more than you need, but it avoids you ending up short of cash if the boat doesn't have too many people or the fees suddenly change!

A few of our trips include the fees in the price. You can see it listed in the inclusion list. If this is the case there is no need to bring cash with you.

Can I still visit Komodo National Park in Jan-March rainy season?

While you can still visit Komodo National Park during the rainy season in Jan-March, there is a higher risk of boat trips being cancelled due to the weather.

The risk is lowest for the 1-day speedboats (as they are more stable) so if you are going Jan-March, we would highly recommend doing a 1-day speedboat trip. Although the 2D1N trips and some 3D2N trips are still sailing during the rainy season, there is a slightly higher risk that they might be cancelled due to the weather.

Given the unpredictability of the weather, the cancellation could happen at any time (even the morning of the trip). We will keep you updated as soon as we can if the weather prediction is not favourable for your trip.

If your trip is cancelled due to the weather, you can choose to receive a full refund, OR reschedule your trip for the next day (if weather permits). So if you're travelling from Jan-March to Komodo, please plan some extra days for your trip so you have additional days to try again, even if your original trip is cancelled!

Is the itinerary guaranteed?

The itinerary for Komodo National Park is very weather dependent, as the journey takes place out in open waters. Some days the currents are very strong, and it might not be safe to go to certain islands. We know this can be frustrating if you had your heart set on specific spots, but please be assured that the boat operators will do their very best to make sure you see the dragons and the highlights of the park - even if it's not identical to the itinerary here. A visit to Komodo is quite the adventure, so please do be prepared to embrace some level of uncertainty!
