“It is an incredible experience. Very close contact with nature and you can get very close to the Komodo Dragon. Enjoy birds flying over the park. The stops on the beaches for Snorkeling is also very fun and enjoyable. The guide and the crew do everything to make the trip as comfortable as possible, since we are at sea and sometimes the weather changes the size of the waves and makes the way a bit uncomfortable.”
