OMG! It was an amazing experience sailing with Flores XP Catamaran. I started from friendly and easy booking, pick up service, so friendly crew, amazing captain. We started the sailing trip in an unfriendly weather, hard rain all day long but our happines was beyond anythingelse. We were entertained by lots of flying fish and dolphins on the way to Rinca island, warm welcoming by lots of komodos eventhough we were tracking in the rain we found lots of new amazing experiences. We saw a baby komodo hiding in the hollow! After visited komodos, with unsure weather we were off to Mawan island and snorkling in the paradise of mantarays! Gosh! This is truelly unforgetbale moment. I never experienced swimming with lots of mantas! After that we sailed to Turtle city for having lunch and saw lots of big turtles and colourful fish ( another snorkling). On the way back we were stop in the pink sand beach where no one else except us! Felt like we own the beach! And then last destinasion was the sand bar. That was an amazing nature. How come the sand in the middle of the ocean???? Ok, the weather was getting darker again so we sailed back home but wait! Lots more dolphins dancing around to entertained us!!!!. Now, I have a good words" BEHIND THE BAD WEATHER, THERE'S A BEAUTIFUL SCENE". Big thanks to a wonderful captain who sail the boat safely, and the very nice crews who serve us very well. Big thanks to Flores XP Catamaran for the opportunity to sailing with. Unforgetable moment! Love it love it.... will do it again for sure

Everything about this trip was perfect..starting with prompt emails and answers to all my questions to the warm welcome from the friendly crew who went out of their way to make us comfortable, the catamaran was great, lots of space and different places to sit to lounge and enjoy the spectacular scenery, we went to some great locations the crew provided great food and drinks. It was nice to feel safe on the water the staff were safety conscious and very knowledgeable, would do this again ..thanks

Maybe I'm a little bit of a princess ... but safe to say I was a tad worried about some of the other 'Day Trip to Komodo' tours as you walk along the Main Street in Labuan Bajo ... let's say first impressions count! However when we came across these guys, I couldn't have been more happy! Professional, super friendly, helpful, well priced and most importantly we had a GREAT trip! So we booked a day trip on a speed boat. Pick up from from the hotel (albeit v. early! ... a necessary evil I think ... I sucked it up! Ha!) First stop Padar Island - stunning! Then Pink Beach for snorkelling / lazing around. Then the 'Dragons' (WOW) and lunch stop - and no, we weren't lunch! Then another stunning island - can't remember the name! Then snorkelling at Manta Point and OMG ... they're massive ha ha! Then a last island stop. All wonderful places - spending about an hour in each ... a little longer with the Dragons, of course. The crew were all super helpful and our guide was wonderful. Kept us hydrated, informed, knew all the 'angles' to take the perfect Insta shot ha ha ... they couldn't have done enough for us. Boat was sound, fully equipped ... and they were absolutely all about safety given the crossing (in wet season) can be a little treacherous ... they were not about taking risks just for money. All in all the early start was absolutely well worth it. A fabulous day ... with a fabulous team ... and fabulous memories made! If you're looking to book this great trip then definitely, definitely go to these guys on the main strip ... Mikel, Albert and the team will look after you and ensure you have a day to remember! Thank You Guyssss ...

we spend a beautiful day in this boat. the layout of the boat is very well-thought. For us these boat makes a difference with competitors as it is bigger than average. you can enjoy the view (nice komodo islands view) from everywhere on her. even full with guest always there is space for you to feel comfortable. so you can actually enjoy the navigation in between the snorkeling, trekking, etc, rather than be inside a speedboat with now view. Great crew. nicely explain the sites we visit :). beers and drinks on the way back...yuhuuuu!!
