Komodo Shine Tour organised for us - small group of four friends - a 4 days and 3 nights boat tour in the Komodo National Park at the end of October.

We started our tour in Labuan Bajo where we met our guide (Patris), the crew (4 people) and the boat; we picked up snorkelling equipment and started our journey.

The tour of the park was great. We spent lot of time snorkeling around amazing reefs, relaxing on deserted beaches, trekking up-hill chasing beautiful views, and of course spotting the famous Komodo dragons on Rinca and Komodo Islands. Our days were starting early with the sunrise, with nice breakfast already waiting for us and early morning snorkeling to spot mantas and turtles, and they were ending in the evening, staring at the starts from the rooftop of the boat. Amazing!

From an organisational point of view, everything was perfect. Patris is a great guide, friendly and attentive – and he speak very good English, so communication was never an issue. He also adjusted our scheduled tour taking into consideration travelling time and sea currents (and to increase likelihood of spotting mantas!), and it worked perfectly.

The rest of the crew was very welcoming and helpful – although they spoke very little to zero English, we always managed to communicate and they were always there for anything we might have needed. And food on board was great!

Overall, we very much recommend to visit Komodo National Park, and contacting Komodo Shine Tour is a perfect way to start!
