We are a family of four (two teens) visiting Komodo National Park per boat four days and four nights. We had found Marsi and his business via the internet and had read the very good reviews. The trip was easily booked per WhatsApp: Marsi offered two different boats and two different formats, that we discussed and adjusted to our liking. We choose four days and three nights and had asked if we could stay one extra night on the boat in the port (which we were allowed to). At the starting day, Marsi picked us up at the airport and we immediately knew we were in good hands: after trying on the snorkelling gear, we went to the boat. There was a very nice crew of four, staying aboard for the whole tour. These men deserve a mentioning of their own as they were extremely helpful, friendly and nice to our kids. Food was healthy and tasteful, too. On the first day, we went to turtle beach, manta point and snorkelling (especially the swimming with manta rays is something we will never ever forget - such majestic animals and so many of them visiting us over and over again). The teens enjoyed canoeing the bays. The next day, we watched the dragons, went to pink beach and climbed Padar island for a spectacular view on a white, a pink and a black sanded bay. On day three snorkelling again, incredible amounts of tropical fish - lion fish, clown fish, butterfly fish and many others - in all colours you can imagine and brilliant corals. And just when we thought we had seen it all: the fruit bats flying from the mangroves - amazing us again. On day four, we sighted dolphins feeding and went snorkelling in three different reefs again. All the time we were guided by the wonderful Marsi: knowledgeable, fun and a great friend to our youngest, exploring all the islands, bays and mangroves. Thank you Marsi: we had a truely fabulous tour!

We had an amazing 2 day/1 night trip with Marsy through the islands around Komodo National Park. I contacted him after reading positive reviews and booked a trip. From the moment he picked us up at the airport to the time we left, we had a wonderful experience with him. I would 100% recommend both a trip to Komodo National Park and doing it with Marsy!

We have just come off a 2D/1N tour and all I can say was it was amazing. Fe our initial contact when we booked through a third party online, we found contact easy. Marsy met us at our hotel the night before we set sail and went through all the general info with us and made it clear, as it was just the four of us, we were able to adapt the your if we wanted to. Snorkelling gear was provided and we gave him shoe sizes and flippers were tried on before we set sail to make sure everything fit. On the first day we did 3 rounds of snorkelling and visited link beach with the chance to snorkel more and use the canoe if we so wished. We saw manta rays and turtle, Marsy told us he couldn't guarantee anything but we were lucky and saw plenty of both. He took amazing videos and photos with our GoPro as he has a lot of diving experience and could do better than we ever could. On the second day with visited Komodo, Padar and Rinca island. Had lively views on Padar (be warmed it is a lot of stairs) and saw plenty of dragons on the other islands. The crew were all lovely, food was great and plenty of it. We were well taken care of, felt safe at all times and Marsy explained everything so we knew exactly what was going on. Everything was included in the price except for tips (Rp50,000 for the Komodo and Rinca guides) and anything extra you want to give the crew. We would recommend this to anyone thinking of going to Labuan Bajo and will be talking about this holiday for years to come.

My brother & I have just spent an amazing 3 days(2 nights) on a Flores Fabulous Tour. Marsey our young guide was the best guide ever, not only was he a font of all knowledge, but an amazing chef, photographer and he had a beautiful heart! On our trip we snorkelled alongside turtles, manta rays, thousands of different tropical fish; we watched the fruit bats at Kalong leave the mangroves at sunset, which was an incredible sight; we walked alongside Komodo dragons on both Rinca & Komodo Islands; walked along Pink Beach; breakfasted alongside monkeys at sunrise; we walked up various hillsides to see incredible views; the food was fabulous too. All in all an absolutely fabulous trip!

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 and some 3D2N trips are still sailing during the rainy season, there is a slightly higher risk that they might be cancelled due to the weather.

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!
