  Flores Sea Safari Tips for Dive and Cruise

If you are planning a sea safari tour with Dive and Cruise on the island of Flores, you should not just order a package or a boat sail. But you should pay attention to the seasons that occur in eastern Indonesia because it greatly affects your goals. Because in one year the natural situation in Flores does not experience the same conditions every month. 

For those of you who like to play in the water and enjoy the charm of the ocean, October to December is a very comfortable vacation recommendation for Liveaboard Indonesia. Because this month the weather in Flores is bright, it also makes the sea waves calm. Therefore, the view of the richness of marine life there will look more amazing, and satisfy your diving or snorkeling desires. 

However, if it has entered the month of December, the rainy season has started to come, but because it is still in the beginning, the rain usually comes at night, and a workaround this is by diving in the sea during the day.

Before Dive and Cruise:

  1. Don’t be easily tempted by cheap tour packages.
    Some cheap package offers usually do not include snorkeling equipment, meals, entrance tickets for tourist attractions, and others.
  2. Bring a portable wifi modem.
    If on Sailing Komodo you still need an internet connection, you need to bring portable wifi, because the telecommunication signal on some Flores island for the middle of the sea is very weak.
  3. Don’t hesitate to ask the hotel staff.
    This helps you get recommendations for boat tour packages for Dive and Cruise.
  4. Don’t try diving if you are inexperienced.
    The current conditions in the waters of Komodo island are quite strong, if you are not experienced you should consider again.
  5. Don’t pay before seeing the boat in person.
    This is an important thing for those of you who are going to book a Dive and Cruise on the spot.
  6. Fire alert.
    Most of the island around Labuan Bajo are arid grasslands, especially in the dry season. Small sparks can potentially start a fire, such as from cigarette coals.
  7. Always stay near the ranger when visiting Komodo island or Rinca island.
    However, the Komodo Dragon is a cold-blooded animal that still needs to be aware of because of its aggressive nature.
  8. Avoid visiting Komodo during menstruation.
    This is because to avoid the unwanted, Komodo Dragons have a sharp smell and can detect the scent of blood from a distance of 5 kilometers.
  9. Bring sturdy hiking boots.
    The terrain that must be traversed in several areas is quite steep and challenging, so don’t underestimate it.
  10. Prepare enough cash.
    Although the development in Labuan Bajo is quite rapid, the number of ATMs is still very limited there.
