Ever had that feeling when you scroll your Instagram feed and you find your friend flaunting about their trip in Labuan Bajo, and you’ll be like “Hey, I want to go too!”. A holiday is planned and bags are packed, but hey wait a minute how am I supposed to sail across the islands from Labuan Bajo? The most popular method is joining a liveaboard trip, but let’s discuss a few things to note before you book a liveaboard in Labuan Bajo.
Liveaboard in Labuan Bajo venturing through Komodo Islands…
Liveaboard is originally from the word live on board, which technically means living on board of a ship. But, somehow it becomes liveaboard among the boat charters to call a trip aboard a boat/yacht. The most popular liveaboard journey in Indonesia is definitely the Komodo Islands trip, it starts from Labuan Bajo and continues to east venturing the seas across many islands along the way to Komodo National Park.
Now, although the boat is facilitated with many luxuries like a comfy deck, AC room, and delicious foods and drinks, the trip packed so many activities that you only stay in the boat for just a couple of hours. Swimming, snorkeling, and diving will be your main routine as long as the journey goes.
You must really prepare before joining liveaboard trip!
Like I mentioned above, with so many activities along the trip you should prepare your physique and check your health to make sure you don’t get sick midway. Eat and sleep well, also make sure to bring basic medicines for an emergency. Especially if you join a liveaboard Labuan Bajo tour for more than 7 days, living in a boat for a week would be a real challenge even for an adventurous person.

Oh, don’t forget about sunglasses and sunblock! Being in the open seas illuminating by the sun definitely can make your boat quite scorching. Bring an extra jacket as well, while in the afternoon the temperature can be really hot, when the night falls at it can turn cold real fast.
The last thing I need to mention is that you can bring your own snacks and drinks on board, you do get 3 meals per day but because we got intense activities every day you might get hungry again before mealtime. So, bring snacks, instant noodles or bread that can be your backup food to restore your energy.
So there we have it fellas, liveaboard in Labuan Bajo can be a rough trip but as long as you do a proper preparation beforehand you will be good to go! Good luck on your vacation!
