With terrible weather in the area we were fortunate to get out for a day trip and we were even luckier to choose Red Whale. With their virtually brand new boat and helpful staff we embarked on a 10 hour single day trip taking in all the main sights; Komodo dragons, a pink beach, Padar and the 3 bays, snorkeling with sightings of turtle, a reef shark and the most majestic manta, not to mention the 1000's of other reef dwellers. The 2 local guides (Hugo and Andre) were excellent. Snorkeling equipment for all although would recommend asking for life jacket if not the strongest swimmer. Because of the weather we didn't do their standard tour this was made up of what they could do and it was fantastic - yes it was whistle stop but we saw everything we could ask for.

If you're looking for a safe, fun and efficient way to see as much as you can i highly recommend Red Whale. They were on time, reliable and very organized. All the guides and boat staff were helpful. We did the 6 stops/ day tour and saw Padar island, Komodo island, pink beach, swam w manta rays, turtles and a sand bay.

The 1 day Komodo Tour is absolutely perfect. The boats are top class and staff excellent. See everything in 1 relaxing day. The following day we took a scuba diving trip again with Red Whale. I dived, and my wife snorkeling. The best coral reefs I've ever seen followed by both of us having unforgettable encounters with the mantas. Guides are super friendly and very professional. Equipment perfect. Highly recommend Red Whale.

We booked this tour only a day before! This has to be one of the best tours I've been on. The tour guide, Hougo, was fantastic. The tour takes you to the most beautiful spots and give you a good amount of time at each location. I definitely recommend this tour!

From the moment we stepped into the shop and met Igor we knew we had made the right pick. We received a thorough presentation and clear information This was our only tour while in Flores and we couldn't ask for more. Our hosts Hugo and Andre were terrific - good fun and responsible, always looking out for everyone on board and in the water. Highly recommend.
