For the onboard activity in Labuan Bajo, we suggest you travel between end of April to October, this is the best time to sail due to the weather being more stable. The sea is generally calmer and very clear and animals are active. Please note, sailing itineraries and daily programs are subject to change due to weather and sea conditions, availability of safe anchorage, government regulations and other factors. Whilst every effort will be made to carry out the programme as planned, please note that changes may take place during the cruise to take advantage of local cultural events, to adapt to sailing conditions, or in response to other factors.

Please remember that Komodo Dragons are dangerous wild animals that can exhibit unpredictable behavior. Always listen to the advice of your park ranger.
It is very important that you tell the boat crew and park rangers if you either have any cuts or open wounds or are a woman on your menstrual cycle. In some cases, you may be advised not to go ashore at Komodo or Rinca islands.
