Meet your guide

Made in Italy

It was May 2010 when the founder, Marco Bertini, firstly arrived in Labuan Bajo, the gateway to Komodo National Park. The raw beauty of the islands inspired him to create something more than just a Komodo boat trip. Coming from culinary background, Chef Patron Marco Bertini was thinking to combine the Komodo boat trip, with a fine dining culinary concept. That is how the idea of MadeInItaly The Boat was born.

Most amazing experience of our vacation! It was a fantastic trip! After the first day, we extended our trip for 2 more days! We saw dolphins, a turtle and a baby shark. The food was perfect and its such a nice boat. It is a relaxing experience with beautifull things to see! The crew was excellent, a special thanks to Dita, she is such a great hostess. Once in a lifetime experience!

Spectacular This boat is simply amazing. There is nothing I can fault. The boat is in tip top shape and even has an actual flushing toilet. The seats are comfortable and the service is impeccable. My daughter and I had the whole boat to ourselves. We went to see the cave and then paid a bit extra to go down to the Flying Foxes. They were able to accommodate our pickiness and made us a simple pasta dish that was delicious. I HIGHLY recommend this boat. I felt like royalty.

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!
