The best ultimate private cruises in Komodo & Sumbawa islands

Jan 24, 2024

Have you ever swum with whale sharks or lounged on a pink sand beach? Does the idea of a manta train sound like an experience you’ve been yearning for?

There exists a place on Earth where these dreams become reality: Komodo National Park and Sumbawa.

1. Komodo National Park

Situated in the Flores Sea, between the islands of Flores and Sumbawa, Komodo National Park is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Its strategic location between the Indian and Pacific Oceans makes it a dream destination for underwater enthusiasts.

The park is divided into three main areas:

  1. Central Komodo is home to famous dive sites like Batu Bolong and the massive Komodo island, which houses the endemic Komodo dragons.
  2. North Komodo is renowned for strong currents, beautiful beaches, and viewpoints over the Gili Lawa islands.
  3. South Komodo features Padar, an incredible viewpoint overlooking three differently colored beaches, and Rinca, home to the largest population of Komodo dragons.

Komodo National Park offers a smooth cruise with calm waters, making it an ideal destination for families. Activities include scuba diving, snorkeling, trekking, nature exploration, and encounters with Komodo dragons. Additionally, couples seeking intimacy often rate it as a top destination for honeymoon cruises, thanks to the unique beauty of its pink beaches.

The best time to plan private cruises in Komodo is between May and September, during the dry season. All cruises depart from Labuan Bajo in Flores.

2. Sumbawa Island

Less famous than its neighbor, Komodo, Sumbawa is an excellent option for those seeking longer holidays and off-the-beaten-track cruise exploration.
