Komodo sailing trip is often thought as something only privileged ones out there could afford. Them, or reserved only for those who have expensive hobbies like scuba diving. Most people won’t splurge on a liveaboard if they don’t have a good reason for it. A vacation spent floating atop a boat for a week or more comes with a price after all. However, Komodo boat trip is more than just a trip of wetsuit after wetsuit. Those who don’t really dive should be able to enjoy the experience of a liveaboard on this fantastic archipelago as well.

Meet the Komodo dragons at Rinca island where their sightings is almost guaranteed. Relax atop the phinisi deck and sunbathe in peace without the crowd. A great thing about sailing atop the phinisi is that it’s usually a small boat and only a dozen of guests maximum would be there; so you won’t end up as if you’re in a mass tour even if space on a boat is limited. You can also enjoy the wonderful nature of Flores in Komodo sailing trip that offers all wonders of the tropical nature.
