Liveaboard offers one of a kind sailing experience than any other vessels. It welcomes a simple living, leisure, and cheery communal living all the while getting you into beautiful destinations.
Just like it’s name, Liveaboard Labuan Bajo depart from Flores’ famous little port town, Labuan Bajo. With the surge of tourism, the town is now brimming with dozens of Komodo tours—and believe me, it can be hard to choose one.

What Is Included in Liveaboard Labuan Bajo;
Basic Meals Everyday
On board, you don’t need to worry about meals. Liveaboard Labuan Bajo is like your floating hotel, restaurant, and vessels all in one place. A good liveaboard usually have their own chef to cook and prepare the meal. You can expect a big meal at breakfast, lunch, and dinner, but usually they serve snacks in between. Trust me, you will get enough of rice, veggies, and noodles very soon. Worry not, though, they usually have fresh fruits for desserts to freshen up your palate.
A Cabin for Two (or Three)
Okay, I have enough story of travelers sleeping in a cramped cabin or communal deck. If you are extremely unlucky, you will end up sleeping in a communal deck with only thin mattresses and sharing the space with around 25 other passengers. Believe me, that’s really happening.
Lucky to us travelers, the increasing Labuan Bajo’s popularity among worldwide tourists invites more and more improved liveaboard to come. That means we can choose better liveaboard and leave the crappy one. With the presence of modern and semi liveaboard in budget, you can expect to sleep in comfortable cabins! In fact, any good Liveaboard Labuan Bajo should have standardised cabins that resemble just like a hotel room. The cabins usually fits two to three people inside with separate single bed for the third person.
Basic Life Jackets
It should be a no brainer that every ship—no matter the type—should be equipped with life jackets. Yes, the bright yellow (or orange) one that will keep you afloat in case unwanted accident happened. Aside from that, a life jackets is extremely useful if you want to go snorkel without excellent swimming prowess.
Water Sport Equipment
Divers and snorkelers alike will love a Liveaboard Labuan Bajo with complete diving equipment on board. That means they don’t have to rent another diving equipments from another vendor before the excursion. It gets even better when your liveaboard have other water sport equipments such as standing paddle and kayak! In water as pristine as Flores, you can already imagine the possibilities!
Dive Masters On Board
Full range of water sport equipments is not enough when you don’t have proper instructor on board. You don’t want to get lost in the middle of unfamiliar ocean, don’t you?
