Early Birds Get the Sites
The Komodo has been growing more popular than it was just in less tan 5 years. Ever since its promotion as one of the 7 Natural Wonders of the World, bloggers and travellers spilled out its beauty to the world and now its quite packed with people. To get the best of sites, your wake up call would be around 7:00 a.m. It could be earlier if you are a diver (you need to prepare all the gears and have a briefing) or if you plan to have a sunrise watch. Popular sites like Padar Island or Manta Point get a bit loaded with travellers just hours after the sunrise. Your Komodo liveaboard crew will try to get you to the best sites at best time.
Prepare Your Day Pack the Night Before
To shorten the time, you better prepare all the things you need to your daypack on the night before. This way, you have longer time to check everything and won’t forget something important. You will also be reminded to do certain prep like charging your batteries or reloading the water bottles.
Happiness Comes in Waves, but Also Does Sickness
Have you heard this phrase before? An avid traveller will certainly feel the excitement of being in the waves; it’s like a prelude to awesome escapade. But an avid traveller would also know that too much waves invite seasickness—which is not as fun. This is what exactly feels like on a Komodo liveaboard. It’s a good idea to bring your own seasickness medicine. Be it acupuncture bands, candied ginger, ginger tea, or sea motion pills. Whatever works for you.

You’ll Get Your Feet Wet from Komodo Liveaboard
Oh yes, darling. Prepare to get wet every time you get off the liveaboard. Almost every little island within the Komodo National Park doesn’t have docks, so you’ll need to get down to the shore. And proceed for a short walk to the beach. So prepare your outfit accordingly! Strap on sandals are the best as it dries easily and stay on your feet when the waves sweep.
