Labuan Bajo Harbor is about 7 minutes from Komodo Airport. And now it is quiet busy as the launching point to explore Komodo National Park. Many Boats are waiting for guests especially those who plan to book the boat on spot. We do not recommend to to do that because it is hard to get the boat during the high season. Plan your trip to Komodo island in advance to get a good boat as you expected.
