The far-flung Komodo National Park in Labuan Bajo, Flores, has slowly evolved from once a totally rugged and savage region to a spell-binding remote destination to traveler of all class. Today, luxurious and private boat operators have make their sailing alongside basics and budget liveaboard within the Komodo water. Here are some of the best way to maximise your vacation experience if you decide to explore the region in a private Komodo yacht charter.
Be Specific with Your Request
Sailing with Komodo yacht charter is totally different with general liveaboard sailing trip. Here, you have the privilege to get everything tailored to your needs. Have a special gluten-free diet or seashell fish allergic? Tell the crews and they will make their best to fulfil your special request. Filling in your favourites before the trip take place helps the crew a head start to make sure they have it on board.
Likewise, telling your captain/ travel head your destination preference would be very beneficial. As you are practically renting the yacht, you have the freedom to ditch the standard, cookie-cutter itinerary trip and determine which destination to visit in Komodo by your own. Give detailed insight to the captain whether you want to go somewhere quiet, filled up your time with diving, or totally having beach galore. The captain and their crews know Komodo just like the palm of their hands, and they could pick up the best places to suit your preferences.
Use Every Bit of the Boat
One way to make the most of your charter is, definitely, by really make use of every bit of the boat itself. Does your boat has jacuzzi? Spent an evening getting soaked and all pampered there! Does it come all inclusive with stand up paddle board and kayak? Then don’t waste the chance to get peaceful moments with these water sport activities—or if you can’t, take an opportunity to learn. Don’t waste your time by waking up late and missing a lot of thing. Wake up early, enjoy freshly brewed coffee or tea made by the crews, do yoga in the yacht’s deck, or simply sink in the loungers and watch the surrounding landscape wake up.
Bring A Nanny for Your Kids
As much as the crew of Komodo yacht charter welcome your kids, they are not your personal nanny. They might be excellent at entertaining children with simple magic tricks, jokes, or teaching water sports, but they are not responsible to feed the kiddos or put them to sleep. If you really want to use this Komodo trip to unwind, then bring a professional nanny.
Turn Off Mobile Devices
It’s holiday time! Here in the middle of the sea, you won’t get strong signals during the sailing trip (even when your yacht offers wifi facilities) anyway and on some times, no signal at all. So why bother checking your phone for every 5 minutes? There’s so much things to do and enjoy on your Komodo yacht charter, so maximise the time to use every bit of the boat as highlighted in the second point. Beside, you will be surrounded by family and friends that you bring to the private yacht, and surely this is a good time to create lasting memories together.
When It’s Time to Explore, Go Explore
As much as the comfort and luxury of Komodo boat charter makes you want to stay, there’s no point to be reluctant when it’s time for diving/ island exploration. Go see the Komodo dragons, chill on the rosy-tinted Pink Beach, hike the undulating hills, pose for superb photograph, and get immersed on the marine life. The point of chartering a boat is to have more privacy and flexibility on touring the Komodo, so don’t waste the privilege!
