Sailing is a prerequisite when you visit the Komodo National Park, Flores, Indonesia. How it’s not? This pristine destination is comprised with more than 20 islands and a dozen of world-class dive sites that would inaccessible without a boat. Today, sailing trip around Komodo has hugely been popular among travelers; choices of wooden phinisi and boat operators in Komodo get wider—of class, facilities, and packages. Fixed itinerary usually offered on the majority of liveaboard operators in Komodo, featuring standard itinerary. Popular things (and the must-dos) in Komodo usually involves Komodo dragon tours with local guides, Pink Beach chills, wild giant bats sighting at dusk, diving, snorkelling, and hilltop hiking at several islands around the National Park.
Though those activities are awesome as they already are, sometimes we all need something more. Things that other people don’t do often. Places that nobody has visited before. Such things, however, is quite hard to realise if you sail with ordinary, open-trip boats—unless you are taking Komodo boat charter. For you who desire more adventure and blessed with the flexibility of a boat charter, here are some anti-mainstream things to do in Komodo that will add more fun to your holiday.
Komodo Boat Charter Open the Possibilities of the Following:
Fishing has long been a tradition among Komodo’s locals—and now it’s one of the finest things to do in the National Park. Sat in the middle of Coral Triangle, Komodo’s water is blessed with nutrient-rich planktons which brings the marine life to blooms. The Flores sea is abundant with fishes, lobster, shrimps, and other seafood delicacies. However, note that not all water in Komodo are legal for fishing. You need to go to fishing assigned area—one of the reason why fishing is not offered in mainstream itineraries.
Kayaking Around Secluded Water
Kayaking is best done in earth most remote beaches, and Komodo is definitely one of the best place. Some luxurious Komodo boat charter are equipped with all-inclusive kayak boats that you can use without without adding more expenses to your bill. On one early morning, when the land is still barely awake, hop on your Kayak and enjoy drifting across inhabited islands!
Learn Standing Up Paddles Until You Can
Just like kayak, standing up paddles is not on the average menu of the majority liveaboard operator in Komodo. It takes time to master standing up paddles, and not everybody got time for that. If learning standing up paddles in Komodo’s quiet landscape, you better go with private Komodo boat charter than the average open-trip boats.
And believe me, paddling up over brilliant water and gorgeous coral reefs beneath gives one of the best feeling on earth.
Having Private Spa Massage in Deserted Island
Oh, the chance of having your back massages in one of Komodo’s gorgeous, empty beaches! This is one kind of luxury that only come with private Komodo boat charter.
