Scuba divers who visit Komodo National usually use wooden boats to take them to their destinations. However, based our experience, it’s not the best option. Therefore we recommend using speedboat instead. There are some good reasons why taking speedboat is better than wooden boats.

Speedboats are a lot faster, thus saving a lot of your time

Komodo National Park has a lot more to offer than just allowing you to observe the Komodo dragons in their habitat. It has several areas consisting of three main islands—Komodo Island, Rinca Island, and Padar Island—and 26 smaller islands. An archipelago that offers the beauty of nature in itself.

In addition to observing the giant lizards, you can also have a fun time in other sites such as beaches, caves, and waterfalls. Not only does Komodo National Park offer a magnificent view of the land, but it also has a wonderful marine life. The underwater world of Komodo National Park is popular among international scuba divers and is one of the best in the world.

The bright colored marine life makes a charm that captivates scuba divers and snorkeling enthusiasts. Diving in the waters around Komodo Island, you may find the biodiversity down there, including the mantas and stingrays, sharks, turtles, dolphins, dugongs, pelagic, sea horses, and many other fishes. Not to mention, the corals where these animals live is a beautiful view to behold.

There are about 42 diving sites around Komodo National Park, with all its characteristics and uniqueness. The water temperature at the diving sites ranges from 20°C-28° C and warmer on southern part.

The trip from Labuan Bajo (the transit port) to the Komodo Island using a wooden boat typically takes 3-4 hours. On the other hand, we have new 12 meter speedboats with Suzuki 4-stroke engines. With total 500 HP, we can go at an average speed of 25–27 knots, and reach the maximum speed of 31 knots.
With us, using fast speedboats, you will be able to reach Komodo Island in less than an hour. We save your time by 2-3 hours! It means you will get a lot more time to enjoy your vacations rather than wasting it on the trip. By saving 2-3 hours, you can have a lot more fun diving with the fish underwater or observe the Komodo dragons already.

Comfort at its finest

Our speedboats are designed especially to provide comfort for divers. The speedboats can accommodate 15 snorkelers or 10 scuba divers (since the diving gear will take some space). We provide tank slots that can store up to 14 tanks, thus making it easier for you to put on your BCDs before jumping into the water. Your diving equipment can also be stored in compartments to keep it safe. Meanwhile, passengers have a lot of space for you to move around the boat. Our speedboats also have spacious sundeck where you can sunbathe.

Our speedboats are ready on demand and flexible with itinerary schedule. There are about 42 diving sites in Komodo National Park. Among the most popular diving sites are:
