Is Kayaking in Komodo difficult? I have never kayaked before

Sea kayaking in Komodo is a rewarding adventure that doesn’t require previous kayaking experience. Our tours cater to beginners and intermediate kayakers – our expert guides are always there to ensure your safety and enjoyment. We carefully select our route and locations to visit the calmest waters of the Komodo National Park. Under our proper guidance, even if you’ve never kayaked before, you can paddle through pristine seas, explore hidden coves, and take in the breathtaking natural beauty of the region with confidence and ease.

We also provide skilled Snorkeling guides and equipment on the boat, so if you chose to skip out on some paddling – you will still have a great time.

How do I get there?

Our Komodo Kayaking trips start from Labuan Bajo on Flores Island. You can reach Labuan Bajo Airport (Code LBJ…also known as Komodo Airport) by flying from major Indonesian cities like Bali (70-90 minutes) and Jakarta (2.5 hours). There are also flights Ende, Bajawa and Kupang. 

What can I expect to see during the trip?

 You can expect to see Komodo dragons, which are the world’s largest lizards, in their natural habitat. Additionally, you’ll have the chance to explore pristine beaches, snorkel in crystal-clear waters, and witness breathtaking sunsets. Our team of trained local guides know the waters, the islands and even the stars…we do more than just paddle on the trip. 

 What should I bring with me on the Kayaking Boat?

Essentials include reef-safe sunscreen, a wide-brimmed hat, sunglasses, comfortable clothing, swimwear, a waterproof camera (or a waterproof bag for phone), and any necessary medications. We also suggest some watershoes or strapped sandals – we visit the beaches! It’s also recommended to bring a small amount of cash if you wish to purchase souvenirs from passing craftsmen, leave a gratuity or similar. 

Do I need to be an experienced swimmer to join the trip?

No, you don’t need to be an experienced swimmer. Our tours offer activities suitable for all skill levels, including snorkeling in shallow areas. We provide both Personal Floatation Devices while Kayaking, but also have snorkeling gear and floatation devices more suited to snorkeling. If you just want to lay back and float in the water…we can help that too. 

*Note- we also have lifejackets located throughout the boat and in each cabin. 


Is it safe to encounter Komodo dragons during the trip?

Your safety is always our priority. Park rangers and our experienced guides accompany tours to ensure safe encounters with Komodo dragons. Groups are always kept small, and knowledge of the dragon’s behavior and habitat also assures safety. However, you must listen carefully to the directions given to you, follow the designated paths and be cautious. 

Meal Options? Vegetarian, Gluten-Free, Halal...

Our crew and cooks are from a diverse culture and have many different and delicious meal options available. We can also address many food allergies. There are some specific requests that might not be able to be met – contact us with your questions or concerns before booking the trip. If we do not know of special requests at least 24 hours before departure – we may not be able to meet those needs. 

Is there a minimum age requirement for the trip?

We do ask that our guests be over 12 years old. those under 18 years of age must be accompanied by a legal guardian. We do arrange special family-friendly trips several times a year – contact us for more details. 

Are there any additional fees or permits required for visiting Komodo National Park?

Yes. There are entrance fees for the Komodo National Park. The price of these tickets depends on your nationality, the day of the week and can change without too much notice. We deeply apologize in advance…we know this is confusing and frustrating for you. We do our utmost to explain that a smoother and simpler system was in place. When you request a booking date – we will inform you of the planned ticket pricing for those dates. 

Please note: If you are taking photos or videos professionally, you will be asked to pay an additional fee…and “content creators” can be considered professionals. If you wish to bring a drone – there is a separate fee for that permit. To arrange those permits will require at least 24 hours before departure. 

We do include all the other fees in our trip price (ranger fees, port fees, local fees) in our prices. 

Is there more to do than just Kayaking and see dragons?

We strongly encourage you do plan extra days! Flores is home to some of the most amazing sites, culture and scenery in Indonesia. We recommend at least 3 days more to visit the traditional Wae Rebo village in the forests, stopping by the heart of Manggarai Culture in Ruteng town – with terraced ricefields that rival Bali and a stay at the Ecocamp along the wild South Coast of Flores.
