Why choose a good Komodo Island Tour agency?
Taking a once in a lifetime vacation to far off South Pacific Island and venturing out to see historic dragons that still roam this earth, is something that you probably don’t want to mess up. It is a trip to be remembered positively and also one that you want to be extremely safe on. When a visitor comes to Labuan Bajo, if they walk around town they will notice that there are many booths and small stands that are selling Komodo Tour Package. Some of them can vary in price, itinerary, of kind of boat, and of course, boat quality.
First of all, a person might ask...why would I even want to visit Komodo National park? Well, there are many reasons for that. Komodo National Park is the only place in the world where you can see Komodo dragon in their natural habitat. As well, the National Park has some of the most beautiful island and beaches in the entire world. It is home to the famous Padar Island and well as Pink Beach Komodo. It is also extremely well known for the amazing scuba diving and manta rays that enjoy feeding at Manta Point.
The main options someone has when taking a Komodo Boat tour is one day, 2 day, or 3 day. These are the most standard options offered by many companies in Labuan Bajo. For day trips, you can usually choose between a speed boat with a larger group, a private speed boat, or a slower local wooden boat. For multi-day trips, you can find options for different kinds of liveaboards included, 1 bedroom, 2 bedroom, deluxe boat, superior, or large phisini, or yachts.
The reason you want to find a trust-worthy Komodo Boat tour agency is because it can completely make or break your vacation. The ocean in Komodo National Park and the entire area can have quite strong currents and can be dangerous if you do not have a quality boat and an experienced captain. It is not talked about much but there have actually been some boats that sank in the past because of poorly maintained boats and crew that were not careful. This is why it is extremely important to find a trust worthy Komodo Travel Agency to help you with your boat trip. As well...many of the guides on the boats may not be certified or be as knowledgeable as they should be. So when you ask many questions, they may not know the answers to them. This is another big reason you want to find a great company with great positive reviews.
What questions can you ask a Komodo travel agency to make sure you are getting a good company? You can ask how long they have been in business and and to see real customer reviews. You can ask about their guide, their boats quality and detailed questions about their boat maintenance. These are questions they should easily know the answers to, because this is their business. If they can not answer all of these questions, then you might want to move on to a more knowledgeable and trustworthy company.
