Exciting news for Labuan Bajo explorers! The sea journey to Komodo National Park is back on, and tourist boats are once again cruising through those breathtaking waters.

Adventure seekers can once more dive into the beauty of Komodo National Park in Labuan Bajo, West Manggarai Regency, East Nusa Tenggara (NTT), as the ban on tourist boats has been lifted. A temporary hold was placed on these voyages for about a week due to some not-so-friendly weather conditions.

“Guess what? The sails to Komodo National Park are a go!” shared Stephanus, the friendly Head of the Port Office, on Wednesday (31/1/2024).

Stephanus spilled the beans that tourist boats got the green light to hit the waters of Komodo National Park starting from January 29, 2024. All thanks to an improved weather outlook, according to the cheery report from the Meteorology, Climatology, and Geophysics Agency (BMKG).

“The weather’s playing nice, as per the agency report,” he added.

Earlier, Labuan Bajo’s Port Authority had pressed pause on tourist boats and other floaty things sailing to Komodo National Park from January 24 to January 28, 2027. Why? Blame it on the potential wild weather – think towering waves and gusty winds. During that stretch, there was a chance of waves showing off at heights above two meters, and winds playing at speeds of 27 knots in the Komodo National Park waters.

Now, remember, these tourist boats are your go-to ride if you’re keen on exploring Komodo National Park. You’ve got the classic Pinisi boats or the zippier speedboats to choose from, both setting sail from Labuan Bajo.

Whether you opt for the slow and steady Pinisi, taking about four hours to reach Komodo National Park, or the speedy speedboat, the adventure awaits!
