Komodo Dragon in Indonesia

A yacht charter to see the Komodo Dragons in Indonesia is the stuff of myths and legends. Flying into Bali, with a short domestic flight to Flores Island, your private yacht charter then takes you to the Komodo Archipelago: Komodo Island, Rinca Island, and Padar Island.

This is a UNESCO Reserve and World Heritage Site due to the highly endangered flora and fauna, including the Komodo Dragon itself. We’ve written a little previously about what a trip to see the dragons looks like for a yacht charter traveler.

Once you’ve arrived at the islands there is so much to see and do. There are hikes, scuba diving, swimming, and experiences both above and below the waterline—including hundreds of giant fruit bats filling up the skies at sunset. This guide can help you plan out your experiences safely.

Be prepared for hot, dry weather during the peak travel season of April-December. You’ll end up taking many pictures here!
