Very nice tour. We visited all that we wanted to: rincca, komodo, padar, pink beach and manta point. We did it private. The food was really tasty and Enzy, the tour guide, was very kind with us and took a lot of pictures with her professional camera. Teri makasih.

Good tour Friendly staff and good tour, good food, good boat. Only thing to mention was that when we book were told it was 25 person boat and shown pictures. On the day only 9 people were booked on so the boat was changed to a 9 person boat. Still adequate but not technically what we signed up for.

We choose Nucalale based on the good review written on TripAdvisor and Google map. We were not dissapointed. Enzy is professionnal and give attention to the needs of the client. She gave all the informations for your questions and adapt herself for you. Moreover, she pay attention to details (make a visit of the boat before, prepare lunch box, etc.) That make a difference. She is an excellent english speaker, quick respondive with whatsapp and a charming person as well. That makes us confidence about her. We took a one day trip tour with 4 points : padaran, pink beach, Komodo Island and mantra point. Two trip is trekking and two snorkeling. It was an awsome day and i am satisfied. The quality/Price is there compared with others agencies on the street. Padaran 1 h trekking with beautiful landscapes. Pink beach is really pink with plenty of fish and corals. The water is clean as well (no plastic floating❤️). Komodo trek of 1 hour. We saw 4 Komodo s , wild pig , orchids etc. Not really the best for my part. Mantra point, we saw 7 mantra's which is one of the best moment i had. There are not always there apparently. Between point , you have time to look the landscapes, read, listen music, discuss with others, make a nap etc. It was pleasant and the boat is in good conditions. The staff was friendly as well. For the food, We receive 3 cakes in the morning- with the banana-coffea/tea always avaible on the boat and a lunch that you can choose (chicken, fish or vegetarian). The lunch is on good compartimented lunchbox (the kind of details i like). You receive one bottle of water (1.5l) per person as well. Well done Enzy, you are one of the best trustfull organiser I met in Indonesia 👍😉

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!
Will I get the exact same boat in the pictures?
You'll get the same type and quality boat, but you may not get the exact same boat. There are 4 types of boat - Standard (i.e. basic), Speedboat, Deluxe and Luxury. Most of the boat operators in Komodo have a few boats that they rotate. Depending on the group size on the day, the boat operator may end up using a larger or smaller boat. The boat that they use will be of the same type and quality but may not be exactly the same boat. Also, there may be situations where the exact boat needs to be sent for servicing so the boat operator may use another boat in these cases as well.
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!
