This outing on Komodo Island offers a rare opportunity to observe the legendary Komodo dragon in the wild.
Upon tendering ashore, park rangers accompany you on a walk to the dragon-viewing area. The hike along narrow paths requires walking in single file on compact mud or loose gravel. Watch out for roots and tree branches criss-crossing your way. The trees provide limited shade. At the viewing point, there is time to observe the reptiles and perhaps even watch them devour some of the bait.
After walking back to the ranger station via the shorter route, you can learn more about the island's fearsome creatures and shop for souvenirs before returning to the jetty and transferring back to the ship.
Guests not on tour may only visit the souvenir shop in the tender pier area.
Please note: This tour requires guests to walk to the viewing area which is a distance of approximately 1-1.5 miles (1.5-2 kilometres). Departures may be staggered and the tour sequence reversed to avoid overcrowding. Tour timing includes the required 30-40 minute registration process. The actual walking time varies and is approximately 40-60 minutes, depending on the pace of the group and highlights seen on the path. Guests are advised to wear lightweight clothing with sturdy, closed-toe shoes, and bring protection from the sun. Guests must stay with their assigned park ranger guide at all times; independent exploration of the island is strictly prohibited. Depending upon sea conditions, coming ashore may involve negotiating a ladder from the tender up to the jetty. A minimum number of participants is required to operate this tour. The reptiles are carnivorous and their sense of smell for blood and flesh is very sensitive guests participating on this tour should not have any open wounds.
