Fabulous friends and family holiday A group of 12 of us did an 8 night sail with Hello Flores. Up there as one of the best holidays ever. With a large group to co-ordinate Charles from Hello Flores was patient, responsive and honest as he handled numerous enquiries as we prepared to leave. He was the reason we booked, going out of his way to find a suitable boat for us. On the ground (or sea), I couldn't speak higher of the captain and crew and our wonderful host Jeffrey, and our chef Bastion. My teenage daughters were never bored (result), and the sea life and scenery were just beautiful.

Fabulous Flores and Komodo A group of 12 friends have had a brilliant 8 days on board the Adishree. Hello Flores coordinated the trip through Komodo Escape and answered all of our endless questions with speed and efficiency. The crew, the food, the snorkeling, the beaches/sandbanks ….. everything was superb. We had the most fabulous experience, I would rate this as one of the best holidays ever (and I have been on a few!!) .... and would do again. Thankyou Hello Flores

Everything was perfect My husband and I had the best holiday thanks to Hello Flores and the team at Mantra. Eve from Hello Flores accommodated to our numerous enquiries promptly and was very helpful in helping us with our planning. Aboard the Mantra, the staffs and the boat Director Baptiste were all very friendly and professional. The team customized our itinerary and we had nothing but appetizing meals while onboard. We felt truly spoilt and our 5 days liveaboard felt like they were too short! Couldn't have asked for a better holiday.

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 are still sailing during the rainy season, there is a slightly higher risk that the 2D1N trips might be cancelled due to the weather. The 3D2N trips do not tend to sail during Jan-March.

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!
