Captain Komodo

Sebastian, the owner of Alcira is really knowledgable about sailing and his goal when he designed Alcira Phinisi was to provide guests with a feeling of comfort and space. You'll find relaxing spaces on his boat, where you can read a book or take a nap while sailing from one island to another.

Two night trip with captain Komodo Awesome trip Went with 11 and 13 year old girls who are competent swimmers but were anxious about the sea. The team were amazing and did everything to make our kids comfortable to the point that they are begging to go back. Thanks to everyone who gave us a wonderful trip. Accomodation bit cramped in the 4 bedded bunks for a family. The trip is really only for families who can swim. The captain was very careful about only letting us into water if it was safe. Both Sam and Adi were excellent and all our safety was paramount

Amazing introduction to the islands We took a 3 night 4 day tour with Captain Komodo that I would recommend to anyone. The private room was bigger than I expected and even had its own large deck. The crew is friendly and takes you to all the best spots. This is definitely a trip that I would love to go on again. This is a great idea for a holiday with friends.

Great Chef, Crew and Doubles Room Great chef, crew and doubles room. Unfortunately, the speedboat got broken and unusable in 2 out of the 3 days trip. The itinerary could be more streamlined to be more effective too, since the phinisi type boat is big and slow, we only managed to spend very little 30 minutes in the Rinca Island (the only place to see the komodo dragons for now). Some of the snorkeling spots they took us to were pretty barren, wasting a lot of time. Plus, the unfortunate weather that prohibited us in visiting the Manta Bay sucked further for our trip.

best boat trip I ever had We booked the Captain Komodo for 3 days / 2 nights to explore as many islands and snorkeling spots as possible. The crew of 7 did such an amazing job making sure we had the best time possible. Every evening after dinner we discussed the plan for the next day and always had the opportunity to adjust how long we wanted to stay where spontaneously. What really blew us away was the quality of the food. Breakfast, lunch and dinner really exceeded any of our expectations by a long shot, so don’t worry about food, you will be very well taken care of. Us 3 guys never managed to eat everything the chef served up for us. 3 days in the boat was the perfect amount of time for us. Oh and definitely do the sunrise hike on Pulau Padar, it’s absolutely worth getting up early for and was the highlight of our trip.

The perfect crew to explore Komodo! Captain Komodo and the crew are for sure one of a kind! They will always go the extra mile to make sure that you have the greatest experience possible! Following a friends recommendation my friend and I went for the 3days (2 nights) adventure and enjoyed every second of it! Super smooth organisation from the beginning until after the trip was over. Adi and the crew where just perfect: always having the biggest smile, super helpful with everything, always making sure that we were safe and happy. Also making sure that you'll get a great picture, so that even as a solo traveller you'll have amazing memories to look back to. Adi the manager on boat speaks super English and taught us some Indonesian together with the other guys :) We can only agree with the others that the boat itself, the room, bathroom and the food is 5 out of 5. Overall, really recommending this trip! Super stoked to explore Flores & Komodo with Captain Komodo!

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!
